I love most things crafty and have tried a few things over the years, but mainly enjoy making cards & scrap booking.I love spending time creating in my "sad room" as it has been called by my DH.Mum to kitty called Bella Blue, who is adorable.I am happy for anyone to take any inspiration from my ideas,if you think they are good enough, but please do not copy my designs for inclusion into magazines or competitions,etc.
Just a quick post with a card I have made for my best friends Mum. I wont say how old she is, but I think the card gives it away! She certainly doesn't look her age, I must say!
I love making easel cards as it gives an extra dimension to the card.
Su products: Melon Mambo & black card stock; Happy birthday from Curly Cute stamp set; die cut numbers from Timeless Type Alphabet Jr.
Other products: Kraft card blanks; Penny Black stamped image; dazzling diamonds; recycled satin ribbon; Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder.

Was my first day back to work today after being off for most of college summer holidays- cannot believe where the time has gone to- roll on October half term!!
Hello, again,my friends, Hello.... Just popped back to say HELLO!
Well where has the time gone to? I cannot believe that it has been so long since I last posted!
I have been around -crafting, drooling over everyone else's blogs, letting work & life get in my way.... so I thought I would would try to make more of an effort in the future...thats what my teachers always told my parents on Parents eves, many moons ago- can do it ,but just needs to concentrate & can do better! I think thats the story of my life!
I thought I would show a couple of some of the cards that I have remembered to take a picture of....
This one was for my cousin & uses the retired "Cheers to You" stamp set & all SU products, except for the Quickutz die for the lettering.
This one is uses all SU products & the 'Everything Eleanor" stamp set. I cased this one from a very talented lady Jo Dumbleton (www.stampin-n-stuff.blogspot.com)
This one was for a crafting friend, again using SU products.
This one was made for my Nan, who went into hospital this week, again using SU products & the "Everything Eleanor" stamp set-I so love this set, it is so versatile to use.
I am getting all excited, as I am waiting for my UPS man to bring my pre-order goodies for the new SU Autumn/Winter catalogue, which starts Sept 1st. You can contact me for a catalogue. There are sooooo many scrummy new things inside & I want pretty much all of them again! Cant wait to get my hands on the new ornament & die set- look out I can see a lot of demo classes coming with this one! When you see it you'll know why!!
