Update on my rolodex.....

I've done just four cards so far but the batteries have run out on my camera so I can't take any pictures of them at the moment and scanning always looks cock-eyed on my blog....or maybe it's just my!
I'm trying out some whimsical type drawings on some of them, I love these type of ATC's so I thought I'd have a go at them on my rolodex cards. I don't think they're everyones cup of tea but I find them bright and cheerful and quite childlike.
I'm now typing one handed as the dog has just decided to sit on my lap so to stop him falling off he's lying on my arm. Looks like no more crafting for the moment then.......

My New Project - Rolodex

Just to prove that I am actually doing something with my Rolodex, I must admit it's not much but it's a start.

It arrived today in the post, can't wait to get started on it. I don't know how long it will take but I'm planning on decorating each little card individually.So keeping watching this!!

Had a bit of spare time today as I was up early, so I've made two ATC's for MAMMA'S Challenge on FLICKR, I used Ecoline inks for the background paper and some stamps I got from Quietfire Designs, one of my favourite suppliers.

These inks are really bright and cheerful, I love using them on cards and ATC's.

I'm off to make some inchies now for the February swap on Docrafts, might upload the pictures later if I like them enough.....

My Altered Playing Cards

Altered Playing Cards

I've really got into these, these are some that I made for a swap in the U.S. I'm hoping to make a full set eventually but time just seems to fly when I'm crafting and before I know it I'm back at work THINKING about crafting!!!!
