This weekend was the third weekend of this month, and therefore IHSW. This time, I didn't participate for I had other plans, such as celebrating 11 years of togetherness with my boyfriend. I did manage to spend a few hours with crafts too, though. What you can see in the pictures above are my very first attempts at making cards without any ready-made patterns or kits. I just got out my ruler, scissors, some glue, card bases, and different kinds of stickers, papers and ornaments, and let my imagination play. I think the results are not bad for a first try. I'm sure that after some practising I'll be able to think of some more creative, original and clever ways of decorating my cards, but right now I'm pretty happy with this weekend's creations.
