Happy Saturday...

I love Saturdays. We're going to the theatre this evening to see Beauty and the Beast, I've heard brilliant reviews so I am really looking forward to it. I was up early as the postman delivered a parcel and I've spent the whole day crafting, computing and listening to music. Don't tell anyone but I still have my pyjamas on!!
I'm really pleased that I have managed to complete this weeks dare from the Daring Cardmakers. The theme was 'space' and I used Shabby Princess papers and a space rocket and spaceman doodle from the Lily Pad. I drew and coloured the planet myself with felt pens and printed the happy birthday sentiment on the computer.

Next weekend I am going to the Lake District for a weekend with the girls from work. There are about 35 of us getting a bus straight from school on the Friday afternoon and returning on the Sunday afternoon. It is one of the girls' Hen Weekend and on the Saturday she wants a theme of cowboys and cowgirls - I'm stretching myself and wearing a sparkly cowboy hat. Again Shabby Princess has worked her magic as just when I was thinking of the whole cowboy theme she released these papers. Perfect for a card for the 'Hen' hoping she has a lovely weekend.

So, job number 3 was to make ten birthday cards for a swap with friends. I've made all 10 the same and I'm really pleased with how they came out. I used Basic Grey paper for the flowers, some little diamonds and machine stitching. I fed my card blanks through the printer before I started and printed the Happy Birthday directly to the card.


There are other items too but I can't share those yet, you'll have to keep checking on the It's A Creative World blog to see them soon. Talking of It's A Creative World, all the comments from this weekend will be put into a draw to win a fabulous kit from Scrapbook Central.

Your DCM card is fab - very funky! I'm pleased to see someone else doing deliberately wonky machine stitchig on cards - I've decided it's the only way since I can't sew straight! Yours look lovely. I love Shabby Princess too, must check out the new stuff!
