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't work so thought I would take advantage of the free time and I'm so glad I did - I feel so much better for it.

Anyway, if there is anyone reading this, please leave a comment so I know you're there! Hope to get back to visiting all those gorgeous blogs at the weekend.

Hi Jo, its great to see you back! I've not posted much to my blog lately either. Am due to have my baby at the end of this month and with the cold weather its just been too cold to go and sit in my craft room. I almost considered going and buying some cards the other day but held back and have set myself a task to make some today. I've got about 5 birthday's and valentines day to make for and I want to make a Big Brother card for my little boy too, so hence why I'm taking the time to catch up on some blogs today and get inspired!!! Hope to see your new cards soon. I've missed reading your blog! Zoe xxx

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.

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.







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.
