Saturday 29th May

Oh my goodness!!! is it really 20 days since i up-dated my blog. I promised
myself when i set up this blog thingy i would be really good and every sunday i would take myself off to my craft room and fill you in on what i have been doing!!!!!

ok well better late than never!!!! and i am a year older now lol

so what have i been doing...well i went to harrogate for a couple of days with my hubby as it was my birthday and he had booked a very swanky hotel. We had a wonderful time...craft wise... at craft club one of the members bought in a goody bag for each of us with backing papers, stamped image, gems and some mesh. the idea is that we then make a card using the materials provided. Great!!! usually but i left my mojo at home!!! anyway today i have managed to finish it off and also make a card for my daughter to give to her dad for father's day.

ok the pets are now calling to be fed so hopefully see you again very soon

Have a great bank holiday weekend

Sunday 9th May 2010

Good evening to you all and thanks once again for popping in to have a look at my blog. Not really had much chance for crafting this week as it has been a busy one. I had Saturday off though so decided to catch up with a few "must do's" As you are probably aware i am a member of the dt for creative craft challenges so here are a couple of cards i have made. the images were supplied by stichybear stamps and i think they are fab to work with!!! Please feel free to join in with the challenges we have some great sponsorships coming up.

The final card i made (in a hurry!!) was for a sketch challenge over at trimcraft. I used some backing papers from a polka doodles cd and then punched lots of flowers using my martha stewart punch....don't you just love them!!

Anyway have a good evening and hoping that the week to follow is a really good one

bye for now

Monday 3rd May 2010

Welcome back to my blog. I have just returned from a 2 day spa break with 2 of my really good friends. We had a wonderful time with lots of giggles, pampering and excellent food and wine.

Just before i went away for the weekend i decided to have a go at making a storage book for my nesties. I got the original idea from the Craft Stamper mag March 2010.. It was quite interesting to make and very different to anything i have made before. I used the rings rather than by Bind it All so that when i add to my collection of nesties i can add some more pages. the front cover is made using quite thick cardboard and then covered with the wallpaper we used to decorate one of the walls in my craft room.

Anyway i do hope you have all had a lovely bank holiday weekend and thank you so much for popping by and having a look at my blog.

take care and look forward to "seeing" you here again soon
