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.

April Birthday Cards

I made and sent 2 Birthday cards for 28 April, one for my Sister, and another for my good friend Sue.




This is the card I made for my Sister for her Birthday, I know she loves purples and lilac, so it was an obvious choice for her.




This was the card I sent for my friend Sue's Birthday, however as is normal for this country I think it won't have arrived in time, as apparently my Sister's card didn't arrive till 30th.  Sorry ladies I did my best, shame the Post Office don't do the same.


Right I'm off to the Craft Shed to sort out what I am doing for the May Swaps I have signed up to.

April Swaps sent

I took part in 3 Swaps in April, and will add those images now, as they should have arrived at their destinations by now.


Letter N swap - so I did N for Nasturtium, I'm not sure if the image shows it too well but the matting layer under the image is glitter card which does actually match with some of the colours from the image.


A get Well card - I found the image on the net, quite some time ago, and made it into a 3d sheet.  No Copyright infringement is intended, and if the original image is yours, I am happy to post a notice of credit to you for the original image.


This was my card for a Colour Combo Swap - the colours being Black/Red/Pink.  I used my newest Toy to create the tree's - toy being the Quickutz Silhouette - same as a Craft Robo, just a different name.
