Some Crafty Cardmaking Supplies for 2010

Hello fellow bloggers,

It is early days yet but how is 2010 going for you so far? Did you do anything nice for the first weekend of the year? Or have you been relaxing or cleaning up after Christmas? I went to the Euro Shop this weekend and got a pack with lovely stickers and three sheets of patterned floral paper for cardmaking and I also picked up blank cards and envelopes, take a look at them below. So now I can start to make some greeting cards. It's two of my friends birthdays in February so I'll make them a handmade card and I may also attempt a Valentine's one too as I'm new to cardmaking haven't tried it myself since primary school.Weather is still very cold here in Ireland and its freezing very hard but I'm lovely and warm here at the fire. I had a few bits to finish off on my latch hook mat with the cats on it, so I finished it tonight. Now I am working on my new latch hook wall hanging. My sewing has a lot to be desired for, I made two wee hearts which aren't fully complete yet but they are very rough and ready. I will also have to do some work on my Bird ID Booklet this week too. What craft project are you working on now?
