Reef Travellers - from Beccy's Place

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? We went parent visiting yesterday and they all seem to be in fine form and the care for them all seems to be working. On these trips we get coffee in a nice little coffee shop a trip to the Art of Craft Shop and a nice meal with my husband's brothers and wives. 

This is a sad post for me. This is the last time I will be posting as one of Beccy's Blog Contributors for Beccy's Place. I have decided to step down from the Design Team. I am finding I have less time to craft and this is only going to get worse. When our grandchild arrives we will be doing child care two days a week. Beccy has been very understanding and she is a dream to work with. The images come in plenty of time before the deadline for the makes. Beccy is always so kind about what you have made. 

The last image set I have worked with is called Reef Travellers. I made three very similar cards. 


I have a Nautical paper pad that came from The Works. The papers worked so well with this images. I added some die cuts to this card. 


This is a proper DL card. All the sentiments I used came from the set. The images were coloured with Faber Castell Polychromo pencils. 


With this card I used up strips of the nautical papers. This design works with Washi Tape too. 





Here are all three cards together. 

What have I decided about blogging? I am certainly going to be cutting back for a while. I really am not making so much. We might start buying cards this year. I won't say I won't blog ever again just not so much. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Gorgeous cards Jackie. I realise you have to make family your first priority and your grandchild will most definitely fill your world. I do hope you blog, if like me only occasionally, I hate seeing one blog friend after another dissappear. Take care. Xx

Nicely done card.

I think everyone understands how busy things seem to be these days. Everything seems to take longer and be more difficult...

I know I have been having trouble finding time to make cards too.

I hope you don't stop blogging all together. I will miss seeing you on line..

take care... Blessings, to you
