Monday Musings #10

Small-N-Grubby is still off sick. He has added an itchy rash to his list of symptoms. Having him at home for a few days has led me to the conclusion that :

There is no toy more interesting than the one your brother is playing with!

The Daring Card Makers this week are using kraft cardstock in their projects. This is mysterious stuff that looks like plain cardboard. I couldn't find any in time to make my card so I have used a couple of shades of brown (which aren't really as dark as they look in this picture).
The bird stamp is one of my newest purchases by My Minds Eye.

Card looks lovely, Kraft or not! I'm a sucker for a bird stamp..which is my way of saying I have too many!
Hope little'un improves quickly.

fabulous photo of your boys!
And I love the card too. The best way currently to get Kraft in the UK is to order 12x12 sheets from Bazzill or Stampin up. But that doesn't make for quick and easy card making.

A beautiful card and sometimes we have to improvise and use what we've already got and you've done that brilliantly! Thanks for joining in with Daring Cardmakers this week.

Great card, and yep kraft card is difficult to come by. I've just found it here in 12 x 12 sheets.

Your card is fab, and it doesn't show at all that it is not an original Kraft card. Apart from Elzybells you can also get the kraft card from pda card and craft
I love the photo of your two boys :-) Happy crafting, Petra.
