Hello Blog friends, thank you for calling by today.  I really love that you keep popping in.
Thank you for all you extremely lovely comments on my earlier Post.   I really do wish you could have come for a cuppa, it would have been great.
Had a very quite day here today, for some reason I just needed some "me time".  On the whole there is only John and I in the house most days.  John spends his time at his hobby, in the attic with his Model Railway.  I have all the time I want in the kitchen"Playing with Paper".  Till it comes to meal times that is!!!!   Seems rather selfish when I read this back, I am sure a few of you will know what I mean I just wanted time to do "NOTHING"  
OK, I am not really capable of doing nothing!!!   Did do some playing, at one point the kitchen looked like someone had thrown a Hand Grenade in....................but I was happy the mess was just from me "playing".

One of my part finished cards now finished off and ready to send
I use this "basic design" a lot.  When I hit that "Oh! what can I do" time, I just make this style of card.
You can make them look so different depending on what colours you use.
I have to remember who I have already sent one to or who commissioned a card and did I make it using this design.   
In the New Year I think I will start a Note Book where I write down Dates, Card Styles I have sent to friends etc:- and the ones I have been commissioned to make.

Thank you for calling by I do appreciate it

  1. Really beautiful Patricia, the rose is stunning and what about the lattice die, love your card.

    Pleased you managed a bit of "me time", I know just what you mean, I've spent "my day off", that is from my paid job, running around like a dafty trying to catch up with household duties, whilst Alistair keeps telling me to sit down as I'm making him tired watching me. Why, oh why do we bother. Moan over, off to bed, Kate x

    Tip: I photograph all the cards/papercraft projects I make and file them in my 'Craft' partition on my PC. I have different folders for each category including commissioned items.......that way you can never duplicate. Just a thought.
