Lollipop flowers, daisies and cupcakes!
Making cards was one of the first crafty things that really got me hooked, and was the first time that I ever got paid to make something for someone else. I have made so many over the years, birth cards, wedding invites, Valentines and hundreds of greetings cards!
Although now I make nowhere near as many these days, as there are so many other things to make, I still have a regular supply of people who like to buy them. Today, I really needed to build up my depleted stock.
As I do more and more with fabric and my sewing machine, my cards seem to reflect this. I think part of it is that I'm such a hoarder. I can't seem to throw away fabric, no matter how small the piece is and have various boxes filled with scraps dotted around.
Making cards is such a perfect way to use up these tiny pieces, and I really like how today's cards have turned out. I didn't have chance to photograph them all as it's getting dark and the light is not so good, but here are some of the ones that I made.
