Howdy Cowboy!

This card was a bit of a rush job last night as Sam had a birthday party today and I needed something for one of his little mates. I already had this image from The Greetings Farm stamped out and coloured in so just used some scraps of paper, a sentiment stamp from Lizzie Anne Designs and a bit of raffia and hey presto! Once I've done my jobs, think I'll stamp out a few more of these and make up some more cards for my box as they are so quick to make. I'm trying real hard to use up all the images I've already got stamped out and also, the huge pile of scrap paper and card which only usually gets looked at as a last resort.

Here's one of the cards I managed to make yesterday. I decided in the end, not to photograph them all as they are all very similar...just slightly different papers and coloured flowers, but the images are all the same and coloured identically - you see I'm trying to keep to my New Year's resolution of 2008 of making several cards at the same time - it's only taken me two years to do but managed to make six of these - four for birthdays this month and two to put in my card box which is VERY empty! I won't bore you with all the details of the card but have kept it very simple with a little distressing and sewing. Just finished work so need to get on with some of my own housework now before I pick the boys up.

Is Anybody There?!!!!

I'm not sure if I'm talking to myself at the moment (takes me back to when I first started my blog!) as I've been such a naughty girl and haven't posted anything for months. However, work, college and personal issues have all been foremost in my life and crafting had to take a back seat. Trouble was, the longer I left it, the harder I found it to create. So, I have now given myself a huge kick up the backside and have sworn that I will NEVER buy another card again!! Can you believe, I was actually going into a card shop and buying the damn things!!!
The card I am showing is one I actually made in October! I found the photo on my camera, so rather than delete it, I thought I would upload it. I have also finally got back to crafting and managed to get stuck into six cards today. Will add them to my blog once I've managed to get a decent photograph of them which hopefully, fingers crossed, should be tomorrow. Had my eldest boy off school today which meant I couldn'…
