Crafting and Calligraphy

I’ve been enjoying myself (again) with some crafting. Looking around on various blogs of card makers and crafters I get a tad frustrated as there are so many people who have obviously spent huge amounts of dollars/euros/pounds on their crafting supplies – stamps, cuttlebugs (whatever they are!), embossers, heat guns, sparkly bits etc etc. Because it’s only a sideline/hobby for me I can’t justify spending huge amounts of money on supplies: most of mine come from Noz (discount store) or are reduced Arteis (craft store, a little like Hobbycraft, but a lot smaller). Mum often brings me supplies when she comes too. So I try to make do with the bits I have and my small skill as a calligrapher to make my cards.

Here are some of the cards I’ve been making today and yesterday

As usual my photos aren’t very good, but if you click you can see them in a bit more detail.
