Lastest of the Cards

I have been busy!  Nanny was here and we were busy having fun.  Putt Putt, Cat Café, High Tea and sleepovers have been keeping us moving all the time.  I accidentally went to my specialist appointment two days early, so that ended in a busy day for no good reason.   I spent some time catching up with friends from school too.  I have been making cards and learning new techniques.  One of my aunties from interstate came to visit and shared her love of card crafting with me.  That was fun.

Here are a few photos of the latest cards I have made.

Created for a good friend of mine who is expecting a baby.
I tried a new distressing/ inking technique on the big hexagon.
I can't get through any month of the year without making at least one birthday card! One of these was for my nephew who LOVES pigs.  The other was made for my cousin who LOVES to Soccer. 

I call this Pigs in Mud!

I love my hexagon nested dies. This is the second
soccer card I have created this year!

As I was on holidays, I decided to get ahead with a series of Thank you cards.  Teacher Aide Appreciation Day is sometime soon and I want to be prepared for it.  I used a similar style as a series of cards I created in January.  Click here to see them

Inspired by this

I love the "messier" look of these cards.
The shadow is created simply by cutting the words
in both white and black card then gluing off centre.
Die cut machines make this really simple!
I bought some new crafting tools online the last few weeks.  A beautiful cat silhouette set of dies finally arrived and I made this card, just so I could play with them!

I added a sentiment in the top corner but didn't
photograph it before sealing the envelope to post it!
Silly me!
That's that then.
I would love to hear from you.  Do you have a craft that you like to do when you have time?  What is your favourite type of craft? If it's not craft, what else do you do when you have the free time?

Off I go, Lots to do!
