WOYWW 649 - Pop-Up Cards, Sparkly Butterfly & A New Stamp

Yet another grey and damp Pembrokeshire morning. I am back on HRT (trying a different sort) and so far I am sleeping better at night, although very tired in the evening (falling asleep on the sofa every night!) - that could be due to very full days.

Crafting has happened this week, and here is proof. I ended up with even more stash on my crafty table and on the floor. This was on Sunday. All tidy now (except for a parcel from Create & Craft to open - the next Crafters Companion Year of Craft set, which I am collecting).

I was making two of the pop-up cards that featured in one of our Tuesday Papercraft Group classes. Here they are -

In yesterday's class we made this very sparkly butterfly card. It uses heat embossing, glitter and vellum.

After seeing some sample cards on Instagram using stamps from Tracey Easson Illustrations, I went straight to her Etsy shop and bought this fantastic stamp. It arrived in a really cute little parcel, so I filmed the opening of it.

I would like to sit in my craft room all day and finish off Christmas cards, but unfortunately 'adulting' is required - boring phone calls and cleaning our cottage, which is empty after our last Farm Manager left. I am giving it a good clean before the new manager moves in. I am also attempting to keep on top of the housework here. I definitely need a full-time Housekeeper!

Hopefully I will get round to visiting at least most of your blogs this week.
