I'm Still Here!!

Hi all!! Just to let you know that I am still around but things are a bit hectic for me at the moment. In true "Jo" style, I put off making my sister's scrapbook until the last minute and had a bit of a hairy scary moment yesterday when I realised her birthday is this Saturday....yikes!!! So everything else has been put on hold for this week while I get on with her book. So please don't think I'm being rude and not visiting your blogs.....I hope to catch up with my blogging at the weekend.

First I'd like to announce that I got another award....it was from my good pal Denise and I take this as a real compliment because I find her work an inspiration!




I would now like to pass this award on to three people who really do inspire me - Denise!! - just take it right back girl! I know you've already been awarded this but I love your work and hey, it's mine so I can give it to who I want - right?!!!! I'd also like to give it to Claudia of Pretty Pressings....I know she's another one who has received this already but her work is so fantastic and inspirational....she never ceases to amaze me with her creations. Last, but by no means least, I'd like to give the award to Katharina. This is another truly talented lady whose work I admire greatly.

Now the award ceremony is finished with (!) thought you might like to see what the postman brought me yesterday.



My new Sugar Nellies arrived. I ordered the new Lola set, plus little Hamish. I also received my prize from Kimmie - family of penguins stamp! Will have to order some more EZ mount but unfortunately will not have time to play with them until after the weekend. Still haven't had time to experiment with my Prismas - can you believe it. Life is so cruel sometimes lol!!

Well, back to the scrapbook. Do you remember I showed the outside of the book Id made?



I managed to do nine pages yesterday and thought I'd show you the ones that are finished......the others have to have a few finishing touches added to them. I must admit they were a bit rushed and I would have preferred to have spent longer on each page but just didn't have the time.












Sorry the photos aren't good.....the pages look a bit distorted but they're not! Anyway, you get the general idea. Only another 18 pages to go!! I'm out for most of today so will have to have another go at it this evening.

Just a quick note for the ladies who won my PIFs, I posted them yesterday so they will be with you very soon (hopefully!)

Have a great day!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
