art and crat club cards

These are 2 cards I did last night at my arts and craft club , we had a kit given to us with a butterfly stamp , ink and the card stock.

The 1st one is using part of the butterfly to make the flowers but I made a bit of mistake as should of put a blob of glue and added the peatls into it but me been me glued each peatl separte and made a big mess lmao

The 2nd one is using the stamp as a whole to do a back ground and then topper as well as a tag to match

post cards forr toppers

These are 2 cards I did yesterday using some old postcards I had and some paper I been building up for ages , trying very hard to use all my paper up before I allow myself to buy more .

smurfs craft

Well My name is Nicky and I have been crafting since I was little but have been card making about 10 years off and on and still learning lots.
I also like to do tapstry and knitting but my knitting skills only go as far squares for blankest and scrafs lol.
Oh forgot to say I also like scrapbooking and that been about 3 years now.
At the moment I am very slowly revamping my spare room into a craft room as you can never see the spare bed in it lol.

Hope as I get the hang of this it will get better for you all to look at TTFN
