I should be writing!

Well I should. I promised myself that I would get started on my novel again, and I will. But at the moment I am really enjoying experimenting with different techniques for my cards. I love working with paper, and cutting out shapes, or punching out shapes, and it is probably not a surprise if I tell you I love doing flowery type designs. Lately I have been using materials other than just paper, such as felt, and have dug out my rubber stamps and experimented with fibre-tips, crayons, water-soluble crayons, pastels etc. I am also going to try painting with water colours too. How can I stop all this and sit down and write? Of course, sometimes it is the other way around, and I just have to write…sometimes sitting in bed at 3am, writing a poem. There just aren’t enough hours in the day, or days in the week, or weeks in the year!!

These are the most recent cards I’ve made, using stamps…



…and a couple of Easter cards. The chick looks a bit miserable, despite the ‘Happy Easter’text!

    Kathleen…I think it is, but I have contacted them to ask. Interestingly, the contact form gave a drop down menu of countries, so maybe…Anyway, I’ll get back to you once they reply 🙂

    Johanna…thank you for your comment. It is much appreciated 🙂
