A Card for Tara

No crafting as such this week. My dining room (where I keep all my stash, my computer
and do most of my crafting) is being decorated. I feel like my right arm has been chopped off. I'm sure you can all imagine the state I'm in - anxiety, stress, panic attacks you name it - I'm having it!!!

I did manage to almost make a card today - on my ironing board - how desperate is that? I hopefully will finish and post it tomorrow.

Meanwhile I'm going to post a card I made Tara for her birthday.
This is something I have wanted to do for a while. It was a challenge (complete with instructions) some time ago on Stampartic challenge blog.



I used Basic Grey Porcelain papers, and Hanglar images kindly sent to me by a friend.
It took ages from start to finish but was really enjoyable to do and I shall definitelybe doing this one again - probably in summer when good light makes it easier to photograph.
