TAKE TWO





...to practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow.  So do it...
- Kurt Vonnegut -


...hello everyone, it feels good to be back in the land of creativity, I'm glad too that Mr Mojo stuck around and that I've managed to remember how to upload a posting!...
 
...today I'm sharing with you a couple of DT pieces for CraftWork Cards, Valentines is so close I can almost feel cupid breathing and Mother's Day is just around the corner too...



...all the papers I have used in creating these two pieces are from CraftWork Cards extensive range...


...the plaque has a shabby chic vibe and the papers lend themselves so well to this style...




...the card is suitable for both Valentines and Mothers Day...


...the textured papers work so well together don't you think?...


...the papers used are from the Naturally Gorgeous Range, the Scrummy Yummy Papers foiled in gold and the Krafty-Christmas-Goody-Bag, all timeless and sit together perfectly along with added glamour in the form of those little yummy disc's called Candi...all papers and candi are available here  http://www.craftworkcards.co.uk/default.aspx...
