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.

March Card Swap

The card below is winging it's merry way to Australia for my March Card swap which was a Letter M Swap.  I try to find less common plants or animals when doing these kind of swaps - so was really happy to find a lovely image of a Magnolia in bloom, which I then decoupaged into the card you see below.


Magnolia's always seem to remind me of Spring - and also how delicate they are - one touch of frost and they soon go brown, so lets hope we don't have any frost any time soon.

Letter L Card Swap

This is another card Swap for the same Group I belong to, and it is also on it's way to Australia.  I had to make a card featuring the letter of the month - it was L in February, the L can be a flower, animal of Famous Person.  I made the card, and was getting ready to scan it, when I thought I know a Ladybug would also look good on this, so after much searching I found one - it's got googly eyes!




More to come again soon, I have to start working on this months swaps, so it would be helpful if I made my mind up which I am taking part in this month.

Masculine Card Swap

Below is a card made for a swap for a Group I belong to - had to make a Masculine card.  This card is on it's way to Australia.



Birthday Card 70th

Goodness it has been a while since I wrote anything, but never mind I have a few to upload today, that have been made recently, so here we go:



This is the card I made for an Uncle.
