CAS-ual Fridays ” Kraft On”

Unaccustomed as I am to posting on a Saturday night but a cancelled dinner date , ( just as well as I am on a diet and its nil by mouth in the Gin department ) has given me the opportunity to rustle up a card or two. While tootling along through blog land  I noticed that my lovely blogging friend Jenny from Crafting in the Country is saying farewell to CAS-ual Fridays and as I love this  inspirational bunch of ladies and their fabulous cards I thought I would join in.

We are asked to use Kraft paper on our cards this week and as if by magic and I kid you not I had one whole piece ( that is the extent of my Kraft stash ) sitting in front of me on my desk and I don’t know how it got there !!!! Seriously I don’t , it’s not mine !!!! Well it is now cos it’s on the front of my card !!! Finders keepers !!!!

I cut some hearts in various sizes with my spellbinders using pages from an old book, the one piece of  ” found ” Kraft paper and some red felt.

I first went mad making little holes all over the kraft paper heart and then sewed all of the layers down the centre of the card leaving the cotton a dangling ! The sentiment is by Paper Smoochies and it is from set that I won from Jenny a while back so its quite fitting really. I actually held my breath as I did the sewing as I very rarely use my machine for cards and was afraid it would go all wobbly,  lucky for me I actually got a near straight line , phew ! Having said that as soon as I took a photo I got a tiny blob of glue ( now where did that come from !! ) on the front of the card so it is destined for the bin, unless anyone knows of DAS ( dirty and simple ) challenges that are looking for mucky kraft cards !

Please pop over to CAS-ual Fridays and see what the amazingly talented DT have come up with to inspire us all and there are tons of fabulous entries too.

a couple of days ago I had a mini crop at my new crafting studio and invited a few lovely crafty friends to join me we had a fabulous time and it was so much fun even if I was worn out the next day ! Here are a few piccies….
