Welcome to my blog!

I'm Lori and I love to craft. I cross stitch, knit and crochet and anything else that takes my fancy! I love to make amigurumi and other knitted and crocheted characters.
I live in the north east of England and when I'm not busy with thread or wool I love to read thrillers and watch things on the TV that make me laugh. I have a love of tattoos too and have quite a collection!

Been playing, having a go at card making!

I decided that I was spending way too much time stopping the bigger things I really want stitch to stitch cards for all occasions that come up. I do like to do cards but there just seems to be too many of them now! Figured making cards as in paper crafting would be useful so I've bought a few odds and ends and thought I'd have a go, nothing ventured and all that...... My first ones were fairy cards, I've got some more of the fairy papers left and will make more of these as they turned out cute :-)

Yesterday I had some more fun and made a card for my big brothers birthday next week, he's always loved motorbikes so thought this was a good one,

Made this owl one too,

And a book mark and case,

I'm having fun with this and have more ideas for things to make. Still slowly getting there with the stitched flowers for my kitchen too, around five left to do and it should be long enough :-)

THey all look fab Lori. LOve the little Bookmarks. I agree paper made cards are quicker, which is why I like the decoupage :o)
