It feels sew good.....

Hello all,

Well I finally feel like I have a card to show you, I know I have done a couple of posts in the week, but in all honesty I have really not been happy with the last few cards I have created, I am not sure if that Is because they are not that good or just because of the way I am feeling at the mo.

Life has just been mad recently and I have been finding it difficult to cope, I reached breaking point, and so I have had a couple of days at my mums house, just to hide away from the world for a couple of days, I managed to have a full days crafting and it felt is weird to say that you NEED to make cards, but sometimes it really helps to make life bearable......Anyhoo...thats quite enough of me!!!

I have finally made a card I am happy with, I do love this Lorali image!!...I have coloured it with copic markers.....the tape measure detail I have hand made from some scrap white paper which I just coloured with copics and then added the markings in...the paper is "WRMK - Tiffanys"

Thanks for looking, it is much appreciated!
Hugs Juls

  8. I love these cards of yours they are so much fun. the colouring up is amazing and I love the use of the white pen - really finishes it off.
    I know what you mean about crafting, I am almost working full time until December and it doesn't give me enought time to play and to experiment. But I ill do my best.
    Please take care of yourself Juls, we all need time to relect and be at peace - to re-generate the batteries. Thinking of you. Luv B xxx
