Card Crazy

Seven o'clock yesterday morning and I was already making cards. These are half of the total number I made. These are the butterfly cards and are on rectangular cream cards.
The others were all on square cards. I quite like the black and pink together. These two are mounted on natural coloured cards.
The last set are mounted on white square cards. These took me most of the morning to finish and then I thought it might be a good idea to cook and feed the boys. They tend to complain if they don't get fed.
Once dinner was out of the way, I was busy with the bondaweb and got a quilt top ready for some hand applique. I started doing the hand sewing today whilst waiting for the boys. I'll show you tomorrow what I have done so far.
The sewing machine also made an outing. I will show you what I made tomorrow. The hand sewing was completed today and it has already been unintentionally tested by Kashka. All in all, it was a productive day. I am hoping that a few outstanding projects will be completed this week.

Wow! Good for you getting started so early! At 7 I've just got Brian on the bus and I'm trying to get Emily out of bed. No way I could even think about crafting or sewing at that hour of the morning! LOL

Your cards are gorgeous, Jane! Ditto to the previous comments about your energy levels - I can't keep up with you either! But it's fun, isn't it. I ignored my housework this afternoon, and started on Tansy's RR. I've been dreading it, being on 28ct, but once I got started, I made inroads into it, and don't feel so worried that I won't finish it by end of May!
