But, I do still craft while I chat, laugh and fall off my chair.
I made this for Gina a couple of weeks back and filled a large jiffy bag with some crafty goodies. Thanks to the Royal Mail, the parcel is lost...... These are the Halloween coasters.
Over on the UK & Ireland craft swaps group, we have been having a bit of an ATC epidemic, This is one of my Vintage ladies ATCs, this swap was hosted by Emz.
I started with some brown card stock, rounded the corners and distressed the edges with an old pair of scissors. tore some pink card stock, distressed and and glued a strip down the left hand side, added a small piece of 'flesh' coloured lace to the bottom. the paper and lace both have a wavy edge, the white trim on the left hand side was a single tassel from a piece of wide trim that Emily had sent to me. I found this wavy haired image online and tinted her hair yellow with an ordinary coloured pencil. I cut the picture to size, rounded corners and used vintage photo on all the edges. Finally adding a single piece of trim that I had received from Jhoclueless.
I made a very simple paper sleeve for the ATC's, stamped and distressed it with spiced marmalade ink.
