Bad Bad Blogger!

Hi everyone. I have been a bad, bad blogger. I have been bogged down with work and trying to keep my 5 year old entertained, there has been so little time to craft. (I don't count all the sewing of name tags in uniform I have had to do - my little one starts full time school on Wednesday :-) ) I did manage to fit in a couple of cards which I made for a very dear friend of mine. The blue card has a hologram winking eye image (the eye opens and closes as you move the card about), its made using a winking eye stamp and special lens stuff called Artlenz (made by an American Company). We don't sell this at Scrapz but I thought it was such a novel idea I fancied having a go. The other card has an encaustic wax landscape (loads more practice needed - this is my first attempt at encaustic art LOL).

I have also been awarded the I Love your Blog award by Nicky - thank you so much Minxy :-)

Good luck to your little one with full time school.
