    Welcome to the Card Craft thread where there are many members who are new to card making as well as the more experienced members who love helping others out on their path to making cards. If you are new to this craft please do post and somebody will be along with some advice for you

    Please note this thread is now a continuation of an original thread on making cards - Part 1, the second thread - Part 2 , and the third thread - Part 3 it may be a good idea to look these first for advice

    Some of them you have to create an account and put the free ones in your basket. That's OK, nothing to worry about. Then go to checkout, you wont have to pay. You'll then get the download links. Just click Download and a box will come up to Save. Make a folder on your desktop or in My Documents then click Save and choose to save it in that folder. Hope that helps. I'm not clever with a computer, just learning as I go along.

Done loads of washing since I got back. Yesterdays loads were hanging around the house as it rained most of the day! At least today I have managed to hang it on the line!

    There is loads to go through since I have been away! I will try to catch up at some point and with the blogs too, but it may take a while.

    Hope everyones been well and had good holidays and not yet strangled the kids!

    Hugs to all. xx

    Yes I'm back on the wagon now will have to re-start my counter though. I just had to get the punch as I've been waiting for it to come back into stock for ages and didnt want to miss out, then another one happened to fall into the basket with it

    I ordered 2 X-cut punches from the glitter pot, a scalloped square one as last time I ordered it, it JUST went out of stock and I wasn't able to get one anywhere for love nor money. and I'm trying one of the X cut embossing flower ones cause I remember someone said they are better than the nellie snellens...!

    can't wait for them to arrive, I bet my postie must wonder whats happened to me as the steady stream of packages suddenly stopped

    I must get on with my crafty ribbons projects today, have finished one and have another idea, just need to get it done!

    Eek, had a right spending spree on promarkers last night. I can't WAIT for them to arrive. I tried to get a light and dark one of each colour - but there are so many I have do doubt I'll be ordering more soon!

    I can't wait to colour my chart in, as well! I also got a wallet to keep them in. Thanks everyone for their suggestions!

    Another question (sorry!): I'm looking for a fireplace template. Quite big - for the main focus of the card. I should just be able to come up with it by myself, but sadly I'm just not that creative!

    ali.b I did get my punch it took 2 weeks though! good job they were on offer and free p&p. Trouble with me is when I press commit to buy I want the postie to be knocking at my door with it!! lol

    Gemm I have been hovering over 2 punches from Glitterpot and when I finally decided to buy one was out of stock!! Think you deserve to celebrate with a bit of stash
