As You Like It Challenge - #66 Favourite Hobby & WHY

Hi Crafters,

I think I can safely say that my favourite hobby is Card Making, followed closely by Papercraft.
I just love making cards, I find it so relaxing to shut myself away in my craft room and create all sorts of cards and projects. It helps me to de-stress and unwind.
I am sharing two cards today using lots of embossing and dies...

Background Embossing Folder - Magazine Freebie
Corner Dies - Joy Crafts 6002/0135
Champagne Glasses - Marianne Designs LR0237
Words - Britannia Dies
Gems and Ribbon Bow

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafting From The Heart - #84 ATG
Fab 'n' Funky - #280 Die Cuts & or Punches
Incy Wincy Designs- ATG
Papertake Weekly - ATG

We are sponsored this time by Shape EZ.

Thanks for joining me today and for all your lovely comments.
As this goes live I shall be browsing the stalls at the Birmingham NEC Crafts For Christmas Event and no doubt spending a little on more crafty stash - we can never have too many dies or stamps, or papers, or ribbons, or cardstock, or..  well all of it really he, he.
I'll share a picture of my goodies when I return.

See you soon,

Wow Lorraine, these are just stunning! White on white is so hard to pull off, but with the touches of gold and silver, they just jump off the screen! Elegant and posh! hugs :)

This is stunning Lorraine, white on white always scares me a little but I should take a lead from this as every little element stands out so well.

Hope you are enjoying the NEC and will leave a few things for tomorrow as looks like I am going to be able to go.
