It's a pyjama clad Horace with you here today. I've just moved myself, and rather a lot of our stash, into the kitchen. I persuaded Wilbear to leave the table out after the weekend craft session, normally he insists on everything being put away neatly once we've finished, he likes everything in its place.
Anyway, I've decided to carry on replenishing the card box, it was rather empty, and since we started using our scraps from scrapbook kits to make cards, I feel the inspawration to make more.
Here I am at the table, with veritable piles of STUFF. I've decided to make cards with our already made toppers, which we seemed to make on an almost weekly basis last year, in our mad card making phase!
I climbed Mount Patterned-Paper-stash - which were mostly freebies from magazines, either 6x 6 paper pads or the paper that comes free inside the mags. We've acquired enough of this to decorate our whole village twice over. Also on the table-desk are some distress stains, glues, a corner rounder, gems, die cuts..... A bit of everything I need to keep me occupied this morning.
Despite the early hour, I've made two cards already. This one below using patterned paper, a stamped and coloured butterfly courtesy of the cub, a die cut flourish on top of a brick effect embossed and distressed piece of cardstock.
I've also made this card below; the stamped image was again coloured by the cub, she's better at colouring than us. It's mounted onto a spellbinders frame. I cut a co-ordinating piece of patterned paper for the background and a strip of pink card as a divider.
I'm going to pawruse the WOYWW blogs before continuing with my cardathon. Hopefully I can make a dent in the card making stash box, and add to the made cards box.
With love from the bears.
