The Ups and Downs of a Crafty Life.....

First of all, let me wish everyone who is having fun tonight a very happy Halloween, I hope all your little spooks are suitably cute and that all the children in your life get lots and lots of candy and that their costumes stay intact through all the fun!


Here are a couple of the cards I made for my Heartfelt Creations design team submission.......





I 'tie dyed' the ribbon for this one, so that the colours matched all the colours I used to colour the blooms exactly.......




I will share more of the cards I made for them over the next few days - but the bad news is that they didn't give me a place on their team. I have no idea why, I have had no feedback at all, maybe my style just isn't what they were looking for. Hey ho, you can't win them all!
 But on the bright side, I had a phone call earlier this week with some very exciting (for me) news, but I can't share that with you until next week. So this crafting lark is like being on some bizarre roller coaster, one minute you are up, the next you are down. Anyway, thanks to all of you who went over and voted for me on their blog, I really appreciate it.


See you tomorrow x

  6. I'm sorry you weren't chosen - I think your cards are gorgeous, but if they're not what they were looking for they should have told you so and told you what they WERE looking for!

  8. Hi Enfys. I saw on Heartfelt Creations the names of the new DT members and was really surprised that you weren't included. I had a good look at all the designs prior to voting and honestly thought yours were definitely in the top three. Just goes to show that we can't all like the same thing. Better luck next time! Look forward to hearing your secret. Pat x

  24. Well! how dare they! lol I loved your cards. I like that cut, you can decorate it in all sorts of ways, for any occasion. I keep saying I'll make some of them to have on hand. But they just never get done. But eventually, I'll do them. Love the little purple hydrangia blooms too. It's one of my fave flowers. Those and Iris and carnations and calla lilies too. Well off to the library in a few mins. Don needs something to read, before he goes round the bend! lol Hugs, Jess
