    Making cards - Ideas for beginners (part 4) 24th Feb 10 at 1:25 PM
    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

    Morning just a quickie from me as I'm due at the salon in 45 minutes (black tie event tonight, so gotta get me a spray tan and nails done, just hope I don't look like I've been tangoed!). I haven't had time to read through the 8 pages I've missed, so please don't think I'm being rude and ignoring anyone.

    I've just blogged my first Tilda card - not too sure about it, but it's going to have to do as I don't have time to make another one as I've a really busy weekend ahead of me (1st birthday party and 40th tomorrow).

    Also, can anyone tell me, have Promarkers done away with the chisel end? I've just got a new silver one out to play and noticed there's no chisel, but a brush type end.

    Paddington - congratulations, are you going to do the lottery?

    Tiredmom
    - don't you just hate it when that happens. Fingers crossed you'll get one from another source. If you do get one from QVC don't forget Quidco.

    Hogshead - good luck with the txs

    Glittermum - stunning stamps, I'm sooo so jealous

    Really sorry to anyone else I've missed. Hugs to those who need them.

    YAY! My back is feeling MUCH better, the sun is shining, I had a delivery of pretty paper and promarkers this morning, my boss has gone, the pompous git who stitched me up in my interview has also gone, I'm going to watch some maypole dancing this morning, all is well with the world!

    Need to get cracking with some cards and gifts tonight, we have 3 family birthdays in May and as they're in my sisters side and we don;t live near them, I'll be taking them all on holiday with us next week .

    I've finished with the spendy elves I think. If no-one needs them specificaaly, I'll release them into the wild this afternoon.

    Hogshead - sorry you didn't win I didn't realise that the comp had finished - ignore me!!! I hope they had a good time anyway!

    Wanna-b-rich - your tilda card is stunning. I've been meaning to try to make a tent card but haven't got round to it. I love the pins and the pearls around the aperture - I don't know why you're not sure about it - its fabulous!!!! I should imagine that its because the promarker is metallic that its got a different end???
  • farmville
    wanna b rich - I love your Tilda card, it's beautiful!!! I hope you have a fab night, have you got a nice dress? Where did you get it from?

    dawnteabag - so glad your back is better, what a relief for you and lots of nice goodies to play with too

    My post has just been, no promarkers boo hiss

    Beautiful day here too, hope you are all well x

    Sorry snipped you. Hope you have a wonderful time tonight sounds very glam. I shouldn't worry about being tangoed I'm sure with this weather there will be alot of lobsters!

    Decided against the crop a dile as good price but I object to QVC postage so I will keep an eye out for it elsewhere.

    Think the postage is quite slow as sure they say to allow 3-5 working days once dispatched so I'm reckoning on about Tuesday

    DTB - Glad you are feeling better, did you ever get the holiday situation resolved when you were stuck abroad?

    Scatty - Good luck with viewings both of your house and others.

    Had wonderful Thai banquet for friends 40th last night, but so much food late meant didn't sleep at all well last night. I drove so thankfully don't have the hangover as well that alot of them have got.

    Right lunch finished and I'm back to do what any sane person would do in this heat - I'm sorting the loft out Husband thinks I'm mad but it's the first chance I've had to do it and I couldn't get anymore up there or get to the suitcase with the summer clothes in.

    Enjoy this wonderful sunshine.

    Hugs to those that need it and don't forget the suncream and hat if you're out in it.

    Choccy I haven't tried them yet as OH has had me out to supervise over in the garden this morning - I've actually bought them to do place cards for my friends birthday lunch - they're Penny Black so should have thought they would be good - will let you know!

    Back off to sit in the sun once I've hung the washing out - book in garden seems favourite with TV in conservatory to see if we can see Marg in the footie crowd

    Peppop your Atcs are gorgeous and the card is fab - are they sweet pea stamps?
    Officially a non-smoker but still rounder than recommended

  • craftygranny
    Thank you! I'll stamp you some sprouts over the weekend (along with the ones I said i'd do for Melissa - if anyone else wants some then let me know). Rainmac i'll also sort out your stash swap then hopefully get everything to the post office Monday x

    Hello everyone, well it's pretty sunny here , we've got the paddling pool in the garden and 2 naked boys running around screaming as the water is sooooo cold

    DTB, so glad your back is getting better and you are feeling a bit better in yourself. Don't let the b*ggers ger you down

    Glittermum, thank you for my 2 cards, the sunflower card is so clever, my boys loved it and wanted to rip it open and get their mitts on all the little sunflowers. I've put the card on a high shelf so they can't.

    Wanna-b-rich, your Tilda card is beautiful, I love it xxx

    Padster, huge congratulations on your wins!!!

    TheWife, did you order the BG pads? I've got the Basics Kraft pad, it's gorgeous but I haven't used any of it yet.

    I've got some girly birthday cards to make this weekend. I've stamped and coloured the images already as I got the stamp today and was eager to use it.

    Those sweet pea stamps are gorgeous Glittermum - which reminds me I won some a couple of weeks ago and they ain't arrived yet

    I also won at Teddy stampers today with a card I sent choccy with her B prize - why is it I win with the ones that take me minutes and the ones I spend blood and sweat on don't (shruggy thingy)

    I also won a bottle of wine at work for entering the caption contest in our Customer Services newsletter - apparently my caption was rubbish but I was the only person who bothered to enter

    One set of my penny black stamps arrived today - it's your day - just nine lives left to come
    plus my order from WHSmith was left with my neighbour - thanks for posting the linkLeia - those papers are seriously gorgeous (daren't look at them at the mo as OH hasn't noticed them)

    Can't help you with Diego Rusty DD is far too old for that it's Wizards of Waverley place, Zak and Codi on Deck and other such Disney channel carp that I have to put up with - do like Fineas (sp?) and Ferb though

    Congrats on your win, any reason why my name was linked to penny black stamps? you trying to tell me something?

    Thanks choccy my images arrived this morning

    thanks Melissa - my flowers arrived safely which is fab and they are lovely!! thanks for the link

    We have been out to the beach this morning, I never remembered the sea being so cold. I need to find some numbers for DD's cards. and they will be done
