Wearing a different hat - when comping meets crafting

Most of you reading this blog will be compers, so you may not know that one of my other passions is craft, especially making hand made cards.

This week I was delighted to win the monthly draw over at Personal Impressions - a beautiful pad of 360 sheets of 12" x 12" papers made by K & Company, one of my favourite manufacturers. I was inspired to start using it straight away, and using just three sheets of paper and some bits and pieces from my existing stash, I made six cards.

The cards I make are sent to friends and family, swapped with other crafters through the Craft Swap Forum or sent to charities. At present I am making cards to donate to the Docrafts Cancer Research scheme, where the cards are sold through charity shops, and for Operation Blue Witch Squadron which supplies cards to RAF personnel serving overseas so they can send them to friends and family back home.

So yet again. comping has brought an unexpected treat into my life, and one that I will be able to share with others through the cards that I make. Three sheets down, 357 to go........
