SALT - Walking through the valley...

It was Lythan's turn this week to set the theme. Although it is not something people like to think about it is never the less one of the topics that we need to face. Please read what she wrote here.

It just so happened that a friend asked me to make a card for her Gran, she wanted some words of encouragement for her as she has not been well.

SALT - Praying for Holiness

This took me much longer than I had intended!

When I saw Kim's challenge for Salt for the 6th (yes 6th!) of January, I had every intention of getting this finished. Finally posting it today. I've wanted to use this box that came in a Cosmo Cricket kit, with these lovely papers and chip board letters, for ages. The idea is that you can turn it to any side and have a sentiment to encourage.

Used my new leaf punches on this, love them!

Catch up!

Hi there blog readers... if I have any left after my appaling lack of postings!

Christmas has come and gone, and 2011 is here!

My children and I had an awful flu like bug before Christmas, this means I am still catching up with making and sending presents to people, and also some Salt challenges that have yet to be finished and blogged.

Anyway, a belated Happy New Year to you. I've not made any specific resolutions as yet, but have been inspired by Kim's recent Salt challenge (see it here) and something my Pastor mentioned in a children's talk a couple of weeks ago. Basically that by putting Christ first, things in life will fall into place. So, probably just like every year, my aim is to cultivate a better relationship with God, and trust that in so doing, my heart will keep on being changed and have a knock on effect on the way I relate to people around me.

On with some creations... again apologies for the quality of photos. Have been resorting to my phone to take pictures.

Here is some bunting I made in response to Hazel's Salt challenge here. Used my new martha Stewart leaf punch and Marianne Designs flourish die I got for christmas :)

Here is the Wedding Anniversary card I made for Tom's parents, used the other leaf punch I got for Christmas and the Marianne Designs filigree shape. First time I've made the popular easel cards, quite enjoyed it.

And finally a quick card I made for a friend's birthday, used a Sizzix leaf die I got in their sale.
