Happy Anniversary

It is hard to believe that the last card I made was in March and when I sat down yesterday to try to create something, I almost couldn’t remember what to do. My craft room is not ready, but my hubby set up my work tables for me and placed boxes so I could open and get into them giving me the opportunity to get back into my hobby. I can’t find everything but at least managed to set up some basic items for cutting, scoring and inking. I feel happier knowing I can sit and play even if the set up isn’t perfect.


This card came about from items I had been saving from other store bought cards. The colours aren’t showing as well as I wanted as the card looks blue in the photograph when in actual fact it is a purple stripe on a purple card front. This striped piece was part of a thank you card that I cut up because I liked the stripe. The images are from a Papyrus card that was set up for a crafter to reuse. They even provided a piece that would scrape off the tiny gems from the card front. I used some of the tiny gems here but still have a few others for another design. I used a sentiment from a new set received, but not opened since it arrived, by MFT. Stamped in VersaMark and white heat embossed. The card is slightly bigger than normal so I shall make an envelope when sending it later on,

I also repaired the two cards I posted that had spelling mistakes so I can now use them later.

  1. Thanks Gerry. Still not receiving any notifications and haven’t had time to research why. I’ll get to it eventually.


    1. I am ecstatic to be creating once more, but I am laughing at myself because honestly for a few moments I couldn’t remember how to cut a card front. Glad you like this one.


    1. In the past I have often pulled apart a store bought card and used elements of it. Having one set up especially for the purpose sure made the process easier. Glad you like it.

  2. I should have begun with this post, Johanna, but I’m so happy that you are back making and creating your cards. At least you have temporary space to work. The card is awesome and love that you could use elements from a store bought card. The stripes behind your bubbly is perfect. Hugs.

  3. I’m happy to be back creating even if my set up is a bit challenging. Hubby says he may be able to get my desktop computer working tomorrow which will help a lot. This little one is okay but won’t work in my craft room as the wi-fi isn’t strong enough. The electrician and Derek pulled through some cable for hard wiring the desktop so maybe tomorrow they can hook it up. Thanks for commenting,
