Making cards all day long

Hallo Bloglanders

A few days ago I spent a whole day making cards.  It is not as if I'm a good cardmaker - my stamping is awful and I suck at coloring in BUT if I want to de-stress - I make cards.  Actually I made two whole ranges that will be given away as sets. First one is the family of my MME project which I shared earlier this week.  If you missed it, scroll down or have a look at the archives.

For this one I used a sentiment from MME.  The background was embossed with my good old Cuttlebug.

This one is 3x4 and I used a Polaroid frame done with a Spellbinders die. (Snapshot range) This little card will be my entry for The Old Bach Porch card pick-up week 40.  Hop over and see the rest of the participants. Just click here.

And some more hand sewing.  Once again I did the holes with my sewing machine (take the thread out!) and hand stitched in the holes with some top stitching thread.

And the one I did for the MME challenge:

It is much more interesting if I do them in different shapes and sizes and I love the look when they are stacked and packed.

I'll just put them into a glassine bag and wrap some twine around, add a sentiment and I have a great pressie for someone special - ready to go.

That's it from me. Please come back to play and I'll share the projects on my craft table with you. And remember - Play as U Go!

Have a great day.
