Busy Beaver

It's not often I say this, but I have been a busy beaver!  Apart from cleaning the house like a mad thing (it does happen occasionally), I've been busy with projects too.

I quite often have to resort to gift cards as presents for people but rather than a standard, flat card from the shop, I prefer something more original and unique.  With that in mind, I will be making this fabulous gift card next week (Thursday, 28th January). 

I love these papers from Prima which are perfect for an elegant gift.  We'll be inking and distressing (my most favourite things) as well as cutting out butterflies and other pretty things.

The card opens out to reveal the gift card (if  you're lucky) or a sentiment if you have a real gift instead.

I'll leave you with a taster of a few projects that I have been working on.

Firstly, I have finally created a layout for my on-line friend, Vee.  We've never met, have 'chatted' for quite some time.  It's always a bit strange scrapping for someone else so it has taken me a long time. 

Another fun Valentine project for Ally Scraps.  Let's just say, that it is a bird cage you can see!

I'm super excited by this one.  I saw a project in a French magazine which struck a chord with me and had to make one straight away.  It was all in French so I've had to make it up as I've gone along.

Hope that I've whet your appetite.  Thanks for stopping by.
