Craft is something that belongs to you in a way that nothing else does. You may share your passion with someone else, and provide inspiration for each other, but at it's very core it is a private joy that feeds your soul. It is there for you on the sunny days, the rainy afternoons and in the middle of the night when your worries are keeping you awake. At the same time it can be restful, meditative and exciting.

Turning a mistake into a success

This is actually my first attempt at the owl card that I was asked to make.  The pattern and the colour scheme seemed to fit the person that the card was intended for, but because the stamps are so little they completely over-powered the owl image.  Rather than toss the whole card I kept the three panel layout on the cream card and added a decorative horizontal panel and a cream 'satin' bow.  I have since used it as a birthday card.  Often my 'oops' cards go into the bin, so it was nice to 'save' this one =^..^=
