Changing hats now - I'm back to card making.
I have had a few different hats on in the last week. On Monday I wore my baker's hat when I supervised some children at a local school making shortbread to sell for Children in Need. On Wednesday I had my teacher's hat on when I read poems to a class as part of their Reading Champion Scheme. On Thursday I was actually wearing my wooly hat when I helped a group of kids at another school build a shelter in the woods. We had to make snow sculptures too, so that will give you an indication as to my need for warm headgear. Retirement??
Anyway, I was asked to make thirty Thank You cards. The lady had seen one that I had made previously and that had been purchased and sent by a friend.
A production line ensued - Cuttlebug folder and Big Shot - glue in Insert - "Handmade by" label. That sounds a quick process but they must have taken me at least 3 hours to complete. I had to trim the cards to make the embossing fit and then had to trim the inserts to match. Not complaining though....I just enjoyed making cards again.
I took the photo in the evening so the actual cream colour of the card does not show up....but you get the idea.
I resisted the urge to add colour.....mainly because of previous disasterous results!!
I now have to find my jewellery maker hat because I have to make several pairs of earrings befire tomorrow morning.......it's a long story!
N.B. Other hats worn this week include cook's, cleaner's, driver's, gardener's, decorator's......
