As you know I set myself a new rule to follow (no more long term Bit Box) I really have been sticking to it. Every weekend I go through what I have gathered during the week. Sort it out make simple cards to sell quite cheaply in the Tearoom. The rest, if any goes in a box for the school, not nearly so many bits going in there now.
I had a problem with my right eye last week, not much crafting done. However I was determined to clear away all signs of Card making before I go on holiday. Hazel and I leave Friday morning from her house at approx 3am to get to Glasgow for our flight to Dalaman, Turkey. We have a private pick up at the airport for the 35/45 minute drive to our little corner of Paradise in Dalyan where we will spend one week. We love it there and will have a whole week of doing "not very much".
On the Wednesday evening we have been invited by friends Alan and Janet to a Fundraising Dinner where David Bellamy is Guest of Honor. The event is to raise money for further conservation of the Turtles on the beach. There will also be an Auction, our friend Alan is to be Auctioneer. Alan and Janet were great friends to John and I when we lived out in Turkey. They had a boat, we spent lots of time with them travelling and seeing parts of Turkey that are only accessible by boat. We have seen bits of Turkey we would never have got to by car. Wonderful, forever memories.
Anyway enough "waffling"here is what I managed to make with some of the "left overs"
This was my bundle
These are few of the cards I made
Not too bad from "left overs"
I have decided to "stamp" little images on some of the left over bits of white card/paper rather than bin them
These stamps used really do not need colouring so that suits me fine
The Bubble Spray one I did colour but oh! so! simply
Bits of ribbon from my box and a few added embellishments................sorted!!!
The cards are approx 4 x 6
My eye is much better today, will back to normal for going away thank goodness.
Thank you for your visit today I really appreciate it
