Update: pink thanks card published in Ready Set Create Dec/Jan 07
Hi, I'm Di Hickman and welcome to my blog. I'm a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. When not working out I'm usually working on some crafty projects or down at the thrift store picking up some bargains. This is my personal blog so there is a mix of health & fitness, crafts, sewing, thrifting, and personal posts. I update daily so make sure you check by often, subscribe in a reader or sign up for email updatesFeel free to email me anytime!
So I've been thinking alot the last 24 hours about projects I want to do for end of the month competitions and submissions. The first one today is this card for friend at 2peas who lost her father recently. I wanted something uplifting yet subdued. I have to say I am really enjoying card making lately! And altered projects.
Yesterday we bought a TON of photo paper and I've been busy trying it out :) So I have a ton of photo's to scrap. My main mission lately is to get "stuff" in my gallery for potential design teams. I was looking at some blogs yesterday for ispiration, wow there are some talented people about.
Ok been putting a banner up there (looky up there!) and hopefully I didn't break anything! I still dunno how to get rid of that other dang header thingy though! HELP!
Edit: Oh Yeah! I am the html queen! LOL!
Just wanted to say that I LOVE this blog - Vegan Lunch Box. Totally amazing idea's for lunch/snack food. Got the link from Ali's blog a few months ago and been stalking it daily since! That is one lucky schmoo!
Card I made for Shrigley (well for Alicia really). Rusty pickle papers (scrapologie feb kit). Heidi swap chipboard heart. Heart wine glass charm and toile. Cut the coin holder with my sizzix die. Hey and I even used decorative scissors!!! I think thats a first for me!!!
Mostly over the past few days I've been card making. I have so many birthdays in March its unreal! Plus its Mothers day in the UK in March! So needless to say I need to get ontop of these cards NOW. I have all cards done except my mothers birthday and B's mothers birthday. I'll leave you with a valentine card I quickly made today to send out with my parents weekly letter. Simple yet effective...
