I regret doing the flower border. The border isn't meant to be standalone, so I trimmed it from the piece of paper that I punched on. Uggghh! I hope the cards were well received!

First post here. ~waves~
My main crafty fun times come from making little armatured art dolls. Last month I decided to make a few characters from The Walking Dead. After the new season's traumatic first episode, I used them to recreate some of the scenes as therapy
and to avoid stress-eating (TWD fans may understand the need for therapy, aha).
They are 8inches (20cm) tall, and completely poseable. Unfortunately because of their size, I can't give them individual fingers to hold things, so they have to sort of cradle them (like Negan is holding Lucille below). They are super cute clinging on to your finger though. :D
I love making things with armatures, because it gives them a level of interaction that (to me) makes them so much more fun and dynamic than static dolls. When they were in progress, I amused myself making them hold my scissors, rulers, etc on my sewing table.
The only time all weekend long I have my phone with me outside, yes it is DARK! Sorry for no #farmspamfriday #supersheepiesaturday #hadtoflash #guineassoundlikecaralarms #guineafowlgonecrazytonight We were outside because All of the guineas were making a ruckus, it was like every alarm on everything was going off. We couldn't find any predators, no one else was scared so... Back in the house after a late night stroll around the fields😛🙄😒🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥 #farmwork247 #tiredsotired #noisybirds
I bought the magnetic platform for my Big Shot - both Sizzix products. It seems like wafer thin metal dies are all the rage and I had not seen it for sale at Michaels, so I ordered it from Stampin' Up. What a game changer! I could only dream of positioning things so neatly and using up all my paper years ago :-) It does say, however, to not use the product if you have a pacemaker. The die set pictured is called Pretty Pines and I die cut loads of little embellishments from silver and gold metallic paper for Christmas cards.

I've been crafting semi-regularly, but less than I'd like (as always, it seems!). NaCraMaMo always seems good for kicking off regular crafting again, especially as we go into the Gift-Giving season.
Who's going to join me in the NaCraMaMo challenge?
