Wednesday 1 May 2013


Good morning to you all! I can't believe its the first of May! Maybe now we may start getting some warmer weather - please!  As it is the first of May then it means the start of a new challenge at A Little Bit Crafty - our second challenge!  The theme for this month is KRAFT it. So we want to see a project with some Kraft card/paper on it.  Here is my card:

I have used Sarah Hurley's Curio Kit, she is one of our sponsor's this challenge.  The images are Flying Airships by Hero Arts and the other stamps are Kaisercraft "Check In".  I have used Crushed Olive DI and Memento Ink.  The photo corners are Dienamics as is the notebook binder die, button October Afternoon and twine and brad from my stash.

We have some fabulous sponsors this month:

Sarah Hurley Crafts


Clare Curd Crafts

You have a month to enter the challenge, you can enter up to three times and you may use enter any type of craft as long as it follows the theme!  Please go over to A Little Bit Crafty and see what the rest of the team have done.

Well I am just waiting for 8:30 so I can get to the hospital to get my bloods done then I can have a drink! (I meant coffee lol).  Then it will be the gym and then I am taking my Aunt out for lunch and the afternoon.

Thanks for coming to visit me!  I will see you later with another post!! Take care xx

Great card, Susan, especially for a male. love the image and the whole vintage look of it. I too like craft but don't use it much, don't know why.
