Emporium of Curiosities

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and had a good weekend.  I managed to get caught up on some crafting on Saturday and then started some decorating on Sunday.  I am having a few days off at the end of this week to get our dining room and lounge decorated before christmas.  Not really looking forward to doing it but looking forward to the end result.  

Today I thought I would share a sample I made for the launch of the new Kraftyhands CD 'Emporium of Curiosities'.  The CD is full of artwork and papers and is suited for making both female and male cards.  The CD is being launched on The British Craft Network during November so keep your eyes peeled for it.  A great one to add to your collections.

I decided to go for a male creation using images and papers from the CD.  I cut the front of the card diagonally to create a bit of interest.  I used some blue cardstock for the matting and added some wooden cogs from my stash as embellishments.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  Thank you all for the lovely comments you have been leaving me.  My apologies if I have not been by to comment on your lovely blogs.  Not enough hours in the day at the moment.
