Stacker card

This is my own design of stacker decoupage which I created using the brilliant cd 3d Card Builder 2 I can highly recommend it you can make your own backing papers and tiles and decoupage with your own pictures.
I used a picture of my gran for this card, I printed the backing directly onto the card first.
I highly recommend Alan & Barry's Crafts where you can buy this cd and many more card supplies

Some brought knitting and someone sewing and other painting it was a great laugh and we plan to have it monthly. Here is one of the cards made by Rosie aged 10

Flowers in Vase Pastels

I did this last night it's pastel pencils, it was supposed to be a copy from a card but I did not have the right colours so it's totally different, I don't like the black foilage but I had no brown, so it's off to shops Saturday for more pencils! I love pastels and they don't stink like the paints and so far I am hopeless with watercolour paints.

Earning some cash!

I would like to find a way of making either a dvd or cd for crafters in the hope of earning a bit of cash, due to illness I am unable to work outside the home but this could be an ideal way as I am building myself back up to working again after years of not working, though I have my card supplies business it has not done very well and I found it hard to buy stock in due to lack of funds plus the storage problem so a dvd/cd would solve that problem too. I have found this cd
which I think might be good as I could use my own pictures so no copyright problem and then I could either sell themn as sheets or on a cd perhaps.
If anyone has any ideas or advice please get in touch thanks.
