Making Cards

Good morning again & would you believe that half an hour ago it was a lovely morning & now as I am sat here typing this, the heavens have opened.... oh well.... perhaps the sun will return this afternoon with any luck.
Another something I got at the weekend was a magazine called Making Cards which is only available in craft shops. I've never purchased the mag before so thought I would give it a try as the ladies in the shop love it.
It's a pretty good mag filled with card ideas and in the centre you get papers & toppers along with suggested makes which is super for those people just starting out with card making.
There was also a free gift this month which included more papers & toppers so I thought I'd have a little play with them.

Here I placed some of the background paper on white card then took another matt of white card & attached one of the toppers which I then built up the decoupage on. To finish off I matted one of the sentiments onto another piece of white card & attached to the card.

A very simple make even for a beginner.

I'm off to jump in a nice hot bath now to ease my sore bones as I was in the garden most of yesterday again. Successfully cut back more bushes, cleaned all the bonoblock on the driveway & even gave my wee car a wash... this is the first it has been washed since I took ill last year so you can image the scrubbing that it got... yuck 8 months of dirt on a silver car... well at least she is gleaming now & I used some turtle wax on her too so just now the rain is simply rolling off of her... next thing I'll need to do is give the inside another good clean then she'll be like new.

Happy crafting
