Card for Gal friend's Birthday

Afternoon to all my crafty peeps out there.  It's a very dreary day here today and not doing much at the moment.  I promised I would share the cute shoe card I made for a good friend's birthday yesterday.  Here it is:

I also made her some handmade soaps, that she had been hinting she would like.  She loved the card and the shoe pattern even matched the dress she worn, and No I did not know in advance what she was wearing...... Hope your all have a fun crafty day.

Until next time

Learning something new

Happy 2015 to one and all.  Have been away from blog land due to life taking over, but I am back and want to share a new craft, well I should say a new craft to me!  I have been teaching my self all about Parchment Craft.  It's a beautiful craft and can be used in card making which is awesome to me...... I am just a beginner so please be advised this is my first attempt at this and I have put the sample together as a card, but can not show the card until it reaches to intended recipient, sorry.  but here is the sample before the card was put together. Let me know what you think.  I am happy with it,  I can hopefully only get better at this new craft.....

Will post my card later this week.  Hope everyone is having a great start to the new year.  What new crafty things are you doing, do tell me, I 'd love to know.

Until Next time 
 Crafty Hugs to all
