Morning Everybody

It is a dark wet dismal day here on Dartmoor, but as I have no car at the moment as Alan is using it whilst Sarah borrows his that means I can spend the day crafting yippee.  Want to give a warm welcome to my new followers, hope my little blog gives you some inspiration.

Does anyone know how I can let all my followers know that I have changed my blog address I tried to Google but got confused trying to follow the various instructions.  Help Please.

I managed to make more candles yesterday around 13 of them but need to order more pillar candle wax as I am running out.  The perfume used yesterday was Vanilla.

I also finished a card off that I started at Rachel's on Saturday and placed an order with LOTV for a stamp for a boy who is going to be 12, one of the commissioned cards I spoke about.

Sarah managed to find a fairly decent second hand car yesterday and will be picking it up from the garage on Tuesday as he is getting an MOT on it and taxing it for six months for her, so all she really needs to do is change her insurance, thank goodness then I can have my independence back.

So without more ado here is the card I finished off yesterday for the lady who is going to be 100 sometime this month I think.

I used more of the Hunky Dory stash that I have hidden away under my desk and decided I really must use it as it is so pretty the card is decoupaged and I kept it fairly simple just added a doily die cut and the Happy 100th Birthday.  I am thinking of spraying with iridescent glitter from Crafters Companion but not decided yet.

Right off to have breakfast, quick tidy up then will do some blogging to catch up with everybody and then make a another commissioned card want to try and get all these done for Wednesday morning as that is when I will meet everybody who ordered a card from me.

Bye for now

Love Alison xx
