While I still consider myself very much a beginner card maker I am really enjoying the learning experience and discovering the talents of others. Just as with stitching, there are so many very talented people doing wonderful things with cards and albums. I am still amazed by the Internet and how it can connect us with people who share our interests whatever they may be. I have become quite hooked on You Tube where I have discovered I can find so many helpful tutorials which are just great for beginners like me. Thank you to all the talented ladies out there who are only too happy to share their experience and take the time to make these videos.
I pondered the idea of starting a second blog for my developing interest in card making and paper crafts. My friend Mary who is both a wonderful stitcher and card maker has two blogs - one for her stitching Meakly Mine and another for her card making Meakly Made. I decided against it though and instead will just post the occasional picture of things I make here on Just Me and My Shadow.
So, here is a card I recently made for a friend who had a special birthday. My friend is a particularly stylish lady so I wanted to try and achieve something that reflected her elegance.
I wanted to show you this little fellow who was on our screen door the other day. I think he is rather cute. I had to try and keep Ben from seeing him though as I didn't want him to be minus a tail!! He is still hanging about and we saw him again earlier on today. He is around 25cm from head to tail. Not sure what kind he is.
Someone asked me in my last post if that gorgeous little cottage was my home. No, that cottage is in Arrowtown, New Zealand and I now live in Australia but it is so darling isn't it. Those gorgeous autumn colours will be starting to happen over there now.
I often refer to the Internet as being' my own private library' so when I found this particular quote today it seemed to somehow reflect my thoughts even although I don't need to pay for a bus fare or an overdue book.
Thanks for visiting us.
