New stuff in Karoove land.
Just a quick catch upon on what I have been doing in the Karoove world. There has been the excitement of a new craft shop opening up. Not just a small craft shop but a new Hobbycraft store. I have never been to one and had heard that they are expensive on a few things so I was a little cautious when Mum and I went to check it out. It’s true some of the things are a bit more expensive but Mum and I still managed to come away with several bags of crafting stash. It was also nice to see so much craft stuff and see its real size. The internet is brilliant and I can order craft goods from all corners of the world but sometimes you just need to see something to see if it will work how you want it to.
So with new craft stash purchased I have made a few new cards. First of I have created some new cards for those friends who have new baby’s this year. I am doing these in pink or blue for the new baby’s and also silver or green for modern or traditional Christmases.

Next I have been playing with a new poinsettia die. Haven’t managed to make this one into a card yet, so this picture is just the trial run. But it looks so special I’ll have to make it into a card soon.

Lastly I have been making some that are a bit more special. The heart is slightly raised in the centre so the heart isn’t flat before I cover it with flowers. Each flower has to be added individually but I think it is worth it. I think this one can be used for so many occasions. To tell someone you love them, special Christmas, wedding or anniversary…..list could go on.
