About Me and my Craft Shed

My photo

Born in London, but been living in Leicestershire since 1988.

I have been a Showaddywaddy fan since I first saw them on New Faces in 1973, and have finally started being able to get to their concerts since December 2012, although can only get to those in the Midlands area.

I have been a crafter since I was a child, and do many varied crafts.  At present I am working on a Scrapbook documenting Showaddywaddy from their start to the present - 2013 being their 40th year.

Birthday Card for my Great Niece Chloe

Well I did get a card made and in the post to my Great Niece in Telford for her Birthday - which is the day before mine.  Here is a picture:

The Butterfly card was one from a pack that was a Gift with one of my recent Magazine Subscriptions, only the front is shaped.  I covered the card with a Backing Paper from yet another Free Gift with a magazine - My Minds Eye Summer is the papers used.  I then cut the green flower shapes from another sheet of the same papers, and found some tiny butterflies to go on top.  I trimmed round the edge with Peel Off stickers, however I don't feel that these glitter type one's are right for it, it needs something a tad more bendable for the shapes it has to conform to, but hope to solve that problem with my Cricut machine in the next few weeks, and of course save those vital pennies.
