I must admit, there's not much at the moment that I would change...I have an fantastic and amazingly supportive family, a gorgeous and intelligent little boy who is the joy of my life; a job I used to dream of doing, and a lovely life in general...but there are always some tweaks that can be made aren't there?
Therefore, I Clare Curd solemnly promise that:
1. I would like to lose a couple of stones in weight at least. I know my excess weight does nothing for my looks, or health. I would love to lose a bit more, but let's start slowly, shall we?
2. I'm going to blog every day, be it chatter, or cards. I will always try and include a picture if I can.
3. If I could put in more hours of work, I would, but seeing as though David and Joseph can only be so understanding, if I did more I would probably have an appointment at the divorce courts. So, I'm going to try and be more productive with the time available, and have even been very organised and drawn up an 8 week running rota of work!! How's that for a start? I wonder how long that will last for?
4. Finally, I Will try and keep up with the house work. A clean house is a tidy mind after all(apparently)!
With the second promise in mind, here is a card I want to share with you today.
I made this card for my pages of the January Creativity! Magazine, and now it is Project of the Week over on the Do Crafts website. I didn't realise that it was my turn again this week, so it was a lovely surprise when I logged onto the site to see my card staring back at me.
I love this stamp - as soon as I saw it I have been itching to use, but never seemed to get the right moment until now. I knew that I would remove the centre of the image, and layer up to give the card depth and interest. And just look at that scrummy glittered cardstock from Doodlebug. Isn't it to die for? I just love that colour combo. The ribbons are NEW too - from Anita's, there are oodles of colours to choose from, in stripes, spots, sheer patterns, thick and thin widths, all on a spool for just 49p. WOW!!
If you would like instructions on how to make the card, or want to see the card in closer detail, click here.
Thanks for looking and I really hope you have all had a great New Year's Day!
Love, Clare x
