I know, I know....

Where have I been ? Well I'm spending most of my time silently blog hopping looking for inspiration, there's not been much in the way of crafting at all for what feels like an age, not like I used to anyway...sure you've noticed with the lack of activity on here.

Lots going on in 'Real Life' which as you know can have a knock on effect on blogging etc...but I'm hoping to have everything settled in the next few weeks. The good news is I GOT THE JOB !! hallelujah :D It's only part time but it is a definate step forward for me...has been a tough year in lots of ways....added bonus it is work in a local craft shop :) me thinks I shall have to becareful not to spend my wages each month, lol.

Anyway here's a card I finished this morning using another fab Stampotique stamp and MME papers

I added crackle glaze to the image but it's so subtle I'm not sure you can tell ?

Hopefully wont be too long before I post again, take care, Katy x
