Catching Up (again!!)

Lovely lie in for all of us today - we don't seem to have had one of those in a while! - so while I'm sat here with my hair in a towel....yes, I've just got out of the shower, thought I would try and catch up with my blogging. Managed to visit some of the blogs last night whilst watching "I'm A Celebrity" (don't know who I dislike the most, Nicola or David!!) and will visit the rest over the next couple of days.

I received an award from the talented Zoe a little while ago - thank you so much Zoe and big apologies for not dealing with it sooner.



It's so nice to be appreciated even if I have been a bad blogger!! Because I'm so late in posting this, I think most of you have already received it, so I would like to pass it on to all you loyal crafting buddies who have still been visiting me and leaving comments even though I have been AWOL!

Next, there's some gorgeous candy up for grabs from Ila - I just love her work and wish I could produce cards like her.....they are absolutely stunning! Talking of candy, I haven't forgotten about my blogoversary and will have some of my own up for grabs next week, so please keep checking back.


Finally, have a card to show. This was a very quick and simple one which is how all my cards have been of late - one of my New Year resolutions is to try and spend a bit more time and thought on them!




The image is Edwin from Magnolia and he's been coloured with Promarkers. Papers are from Pink Petticoat, sentiment is Penny Black, flower is a Flora Doodle from Joanna Sheen and brad is from my stash. Sticky gems are from Papermania. Finally, rounded all the corners with my SU punch.

Off to dry my hair now and tackle the ironing! I've been having a real sort out in the house over the last week which included my craft stash (again!) so my brother and brother-in-law are coming round this weekend to do some jobs for me so hopefully, when they're done, I'll be able to tackle a few more Christmas cards!

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.
