~ Crafty Silver Fairy ~

A very quick post from me today. Been a bit under the weather with a cold, but feeling much brighter today. This is a card for birthday swap on a craft forum.

It features a digi download, as I'm not really a cute fan, these work out quite economical. Coloured with promarkers and distress inks.

In my wisdom this morning I decided to clear up my craft area, as it looked like a bin had been emptied on my desk. I am notoriously messy, but fed up with never being able to find anything, and always losing my glasses under the rubble, I decided to tackle it. A couple of hours and a couple of bin bags later it really doesn't look much different, my problem really, is far too much craft stash and far too little space which I'm sure many of you can relate to. I need to look into some space saving storage I think.

Have a lovely evening  & happy crafting XX

This is a stunning card, Paula! I'd love to know where you got those gorgeous roses from? I hope you'll be feeling better very soon. Take care.

Beautiful card, very pretty doily too! The only really way to deal with the mess is not to get any new stash!! I've spent the whole afternoon tidying up as I just couldn't deal with it any more. But only takes about half an hour to get in a state again. Every time I make a space I just fill it up. Hopeless case(!)

You may not care for cute (whispering that I am in agreement with you) but you carried this off. It is so beautiful.
Get better soon.

Thankyou for your lovely comment, so encouraging! although I started my blog sometime ago, I never really got to grips with it. My new years resolution is to develop my blog and enter any challenges that appeal to me. I do love your work, I'm hooked on vintage style so I suspect we speak the same language, thanks again Toni x
