An imagine card and a confession

Hi all,

Well, another busy week in the real world. I did get the chance to do a little craft this week - I made a card for a friend ... OK, well two cards. I made this card first, but it just did not seem right for a grown-up.

I used the best friends imagine cartridge for the front and the card from Plantain Schoolbook (p79) as the base. I used dimensionals to lift the picture and the balloon. I am really having trouble making things I really like with the Imagine. Half my trouble is that the images on the imagine cartridges are just not my scene. I am going to have to do more with images from the old cricut cartridges and the colours and patterns from the new imagine cartridges.

Anyway, in the end I made a tried and true design for my friend's card and gave that to her. I will keep this other card for someone younger. We went to the pub to celebrate yesterday arvo. The kids played on the grass outside and the grown-ups socialised and supervised from the patio. Lovely time had by all and we were home by 7pm.

Now for my confession ....

I would love you all to think that my craft room looks like this all the time...

But unfortunately some of the time it looks similar to this...

My area

Jessica's area

So now you know what I will be spending today doing!!

I really do need to tidy again because I don't seem to work very well when the place is messy. Probably why nothing much craft wise got done this week.

Hope you all have a good week,



  1. Really cute card! Its impossible to keep things clean when you are me it looks like you have been very busy!

  2. Didn't think you were a true crafter with your first picture of your workspace! Lol!
    Your card turned out great.Still in two minds whether to get the Imagine,I'll just keep stalking blogs for the time being!
