Sunday 9 June 2013


Oh my goodness, I haven’t posted for a week, that hasn’t happened in months and is very naughty of me! On the up side, however, time not spent blogging has been spent making cards, so it’s not all bad.
 To make up for my absence I’m posting twice tonight. Both my cards feature Wellington Bear from Docrafts. I wasn’t too sure about him when I first saw him, his feet are so big, lol, but he has grown on me a lot, so I had a splurge on some decoupage. Unfortunately I realised that my bargain buy of 18 decoupage designs was cheap because it wasn’t die-cut! I almost took it back to change it for the more expensive die-cut set, but remembered that once upon a time I had moaned about die-cut decoupage making us crafters so lazy! I don’t like to be hypocritical, so I sat down one evening in front of the tv armed with my scissors and cut out all 18 designs. Surprisingly I really enjoyed it, it’s so therapeutic!
