Because of the craft market's demands on my time, I have to confess that I did consider cheating on the Postcard a Week challenge by sending a pre-printed postcard. But at the last minute I thought that no, I really mustn't, and instead I will make this week's when I have time and inspiration next week, and send two at once.
So, cheat-free and with a clean conscience, I bring to you today a couple of cards that had to be made for birthdays just gone. First, in order to polish my little halo just that bit more, I'd like to draw your attention to how I said in my 2011 resolutions that I would only make cards from paper and materials that were no longer loved and that I won't use in any other crafting... and then show you a card which 100% fits the bill.
A little card for a music-loving friend, using scraps of paper, stamping, and a fountain pen ink cartridge:
Then I'd like to preface the next card by pushing my angelic side so that it's not so important that I didn't follow the resolution rules for this one: it's for my mum, and since we all know how special mums are, I confess that there were some materials used that were not in the waste pile. A long time ago I scraplifted a card; well, I had to come back to it. It's just too beautiful.
Well, it's back to the workbench for me. The craft market is going to be a joint (ad)venture with my crafty friend Chocodeline; let's hope we have bonne chance!
