Hi, This is what I have been up to

Just thought I would say hello to everyone. I'm still around! but sadly haven't made any cards for months now. I have discovered Patchwork and quilting which is all too consuming, but I love it. The bonus is that you get to keep your little masterpieces. This is a Christmas Table Runner I have just finished, its reversible.

I really want to get back into papercrafts because I have a room full of stash.
So hope to be adding something very soon.
Take Care everyone
Linda xx

My Grand Daughters 8th Birthday Card

I think I should rename my Blog 'Elvie's Invisible Corner' as I have very few visitors and even less comments. So how do you get your blog visitors, all answers on a postcard please.... lol

So this is my first Easel card, a bit slow aren't I.

Up to date at last!

My last Pazzels card before I sold it and went back to a Cricut. Also the kit card I sent to Marleen. Decided I must update my Blog more often. I should also find out how to add Candy.

Latest Cards

The Mono card was made using the kit I received from Marleen, a do-craft member. The Brown card is using V&A papers and a House Mouse image, SU sentiment.

Dusted off my Pazzels

After almost giving up and selling my Pazzels I think I have at last got to grips with it. A long long way to go before I can use it to its full potential though. The Turquoise card has the negative cut from the Purple one.

Challenge Card

Pink Petticoat Papers with a HOTP image,made this for Loretta's Challenge.

Starting over with my Blog

I have had to have a major overhall of my Blog due to it being re-directed all the time to an adversising site. So lots of my gadgets had to be removed, including my counter. Well I didn't have many visits, about 700 but now I have to start again. I'll have to find out how to add blog candy to get my numbers up. Oh the joys of technology. At least Johnny Depp is still in place!

Hot off the Press Papers with 'Isabella' from Digistamp Boutique. Fiskars Border Punch threaded with ribbon.

MS punch

My first effort with this MS punch, which I love, its slightly off, but I'm trying to perfect it. Image is 'Sophie' from Digistamp Boutique, and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.

Good Morning, March already, and now I can say, Next Month I will be 60! and not too long to wait for the Cruise.
I almost gave up on this card, I just couldn't get it right, but left it overnight and the next day it came together ok.

Craft Stamper free stamp

I made this card using the free stamp from 'Craft Stamper' it was designed by Glenda from Elusive Images, the background stamp is by Anna griffin. All stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. The 'Love' stamp is from Stampendous.
Finding it hard to get back into my card making since the xmas overload. Although I have made some ATC's for swapping. The trouble is my craft room is quite cold, and with all this snow around its far too tempting to stay in the warm.
