Hi all – it’s been 4 months since I’ve made any cards – I had my baby girl in may, and since then life has been great but very busy, and I just haven’t managed to make any cards. I also had a bit of a card making identity crisis – I made a card about a month ago which went completely wrong and so I took some extra time to think about the type of cards I want to make. I’ve just had a look through my old posts, from my first card to my latest card and actually, I’ve realised that I’ve come a long way since my first cards in january. I’ve got a long way to go, but I think card making and craft is just about enjoying the process and the journey and not trying to be ‘perfect’ and trying to be as good as some of the other amazing card makers on the blogs that I’ve seen. I’m still a beginner, and I want to enjoy making cards rather than doubting the end results.
So, after that bit of philosophy, here’s my latest card: it’s a birthday card for a 4 year old girl whose party we are at next week. I am really happy with this card. I like quite simple cards and so I tried to keep this card simple but effective, and the teddy bears are some embellishments that my mum bout me just after Rosie was born. I hope that the little girl it’s for will like this card, but either way I, pleased with the result! I’ve used some pink card bought from paper mill, and that’s about it!
I have got the bug again now and so am going to make my little sister a well done card next, as she did well with her GCSE results. Will post again when I’ve finished it 🙂
