Yet more Cardmaking by Number Card !

My twist (Original project not shown)
Original project (Couldn't do my own twist as Vince made one before)

More cards from the Cardmaking by Number kit, I don't have the two pictures of the same card this time as Vince had a go at some of the cards and sent them so I had either to do one as I like it and the other I thougth I couldn't better the original project so decided to go for it ....just like that by number ! :)

It's a real fun kit and I'm enjoying going through it ! :)

Another 'Cardmaking by Number' Greeting Card - Many Thanks !

My own twist on the original project (below)
Original project
Here's another couple of cards from that huge kit (25 styles....twice) as I'm going through it at a leisurely pace. I'm getting a kick out of creating another card positioning the elements in a different manner.

No update yet on the last bunny arm as I'm half way through it and I find it hard going now... :(

Framed and Gilded Teddy Bears Card - Creative Cardmaking Vintage Freebie Papers

I got a truckload of craft magazines from the very patient Sharon Duncan ! LOL I wonder if she needed a forklift to get my mags to the post office ???

As I was going through them I spotted these lovely free papers from Crafter's Companion, also noticed that the lovely Nicola made the sample for them, so I thought why not assembling it ! :)

Since I'm on a gilding trip recently, the card got the full gilding flakes treatment, all around it and on some of the leaves on the frame.

I like how once you open the card the little doggy appears as it was hidden by the frame ! Little things amuse me recently ! ;)

Now the magazine is Creative Cardmaking Vintage Special Edition and it has lovely papers from, wild guess here, two CD collections form Crafter's Companion. I'm really liking these magazines from Practical Publishing International ! :)

Why Buy your Crafting Supplies online at

Just found out that Woolworths (yes they're still around online, hurray !) have started stocking craft supplies. I have fond memories of visiting Woolworths retail stores now gone but I'm also very happy to say that the same company who owns Littlewoods have kept it alive online so we can carry on using a brand we love and trust.

Now let's be honest we always associated Woolworths with the pick n mix and other items we didn't know we needed when the only thing we wanted was to buy the latest single....ah the kitchen gadgets I got and still use today.

One more card from Card Making by Number - Second crocheted bunny leg completed !

My own twist on the original project (below), a bit annoyed a the ribbon nick but I didn't have an 'iron' handy' lol

Original Project
Yet another card from the kit 'Card Making by Number' and my own twist to it ! :) You can see my first post about it.

The ribbon where it was folded is showing but it didn't show that much in reality, I guess pictures give out all the little niggling mistakes away ! :(

I've also managed to finish the second crocheted bunny leg yesterday night, I've unravelled the arms as I wasn't happy with it so I'm back to square on with them. 

Crochet bunny legs ! Full body coming to a screen near you very very soon ! lol

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday ? #88

Hello everyone, I quickly too a picture of my workdesk today but since I'm sharing it with Mr V I caught him starting to make a card with a David Parkin digital image he coloured and added a flower to it ! You can see the other digital images on that piece of card on the left.

My contribution today ? That little crocheted bunny leg on the right hand side, I had unravel the arms as I wasn't happy with them. I will eventually finish that bunny....I won't be beaten ! LOL

I'll try to visit more WOYWW blogs today with a nice cuppa during this af ! Thank you for all your comments I really appreciate them.

Some were asking about the 50 cards kits I featured on my previous WOYWW well they are 25 designs of cards twice so I've decided to follow the project and then give it my own twist, you can see my first post about it, 'card by number'.

Having fun with Card Making by Number - House of White Birches !

My own twist on the card project

Original project but I've aded the strip of gilded flakes and a different ribbon
I've been playing with that 50 cards kit I had on my desk since last Wednesday, it's actually 25 designs you can make twice. So I thought why not having a go at making the original project and then instead of making the same card again, just give it my own I did !

I couldn't help but use the gilding flakes I got recently and also used them on the original project which doesn't make it original anymore. lol

I'll show the various cards I made over the next few weeks to avoid having a huge post and then nothing.....I'm not as stupid as I look ! lol

A big thank you to Maria Nerius as I won this Card Making by Number with other fabulous goodies on one of her webcast shows online. The lady is very generous ! :)

EDIT : Just to let you know that QVC UK might be stocking this Card Making by Number kit but it hasn't aired yet, hence the lack of accompanying picture on their site, the name is identical but to be sure ask the operator if you can make 50 cards with that kit, so hold on unto your horses if you couldn't find it in the UK...yet, this kit might be proably aired on Feb 22nd !

ANOTHER EDIT : Just spotted Sara from Crafter's companion posting something about an event for the very same kit that is on QVC on Create & Craft TV, it's also available on their own website too.
