Been a busy day but fun ..

Well today was just one of those days busy busy busy.... but I can honestly say productive, for one I got to grips with getting the instructions and photos done for the Hat Stand, also today when AJ ( ) or myself are not at work we have his Nan and her friend over for a day of crafting, anything from cards to altered art ...
We have a good old natter and catch up .. mmmm now thats making me sound OLD .. ahh
We learn from each other and sometimes we set challenges to keep our interest. So thought I would share a few pics of our day :o)
Frugal Crafter..every grain of Glitter :o)

Concentrate AJ.

 Ah a welcome break .. we enjoyed a nice salad
and a good cup of tea ... What more could you
ask for .. There are no pics of me I was the
photographer for the day :o)
Aj enjoying his lunch and a good Natter with his Nan
Mmmmm my food and a good cuppa amidst the glorious mess

 The card I made Stamp by Gorgeous
 and colours using Spectrum Noir pens
 attempting a mono style with yellow
 highlights & red hearts on the boots.
 Then simply mat & layered and added a simple black ribbon to finish.

  3. Hi Mark. Thanks for stopping my blog and even signing up as a follower :). I love how you proudly call your blog, The Male Crafter. I can see what a great crafter you are. I love your altered hat stand. That's a yummy cold plate. It's the kind of food I eat everyday, minus the meat :. I enjoyed surfing your blog. I would love for you to visit my blog again. I'll be more than glad to share with you any of my files that you might want to try.
