Atc's



Here's a series of 18 'Thank you' atc's which I made for the ladies in my craft club. They turn up every week without fail and help to set up and tidy away at the end of the night so I made them all an atc to thank them for their support and attendance throughout the year. Each one is different but are all based on the same design using the same products.

Here's one of my little cards which can also be found in my gallery on the Docrafts website.


Welcome to my blog!

This will be my own little 'internet craft area'!
I will try to keep it updated but when life is busy, we can't always keep on top of things can we?.....
I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember. I learned how to knit with help from my mum and my nan and then began sewing at high school. I love to have a go at any type of creative 'hands on' projects whether it be using paper, card, fabric, wood or any other material.
I've always made cards for people on special occasions but began doing it seriously about eight years ago and haven't bought a card since! I do like scrapbooking as well and currently have four of them on the go which will be finished eventually.
I am currently working as a freelance designer/demonstrator for Docrafts and also run a craft club which was set up in May 2007. However, it still isn't enough crafting for me and I would do it in my sleep if I could!
My craft club takes place in our local cricket club every Wednesday evening and the ladies come along and make cards and scrap layouts depending on their mood that evening. They relax with a drink from the bar and craft the night away till 9.45pm when we draw the raffle (always a 'crafty' prize of course) and tidy up. Which reminds me...I need to start preparing for this weeks meeting so I'd better do a couple of hours now before bedtime......
