Easel card..

Well i had to have a go at one of these didn't i ?

I was thrilled to find Christy Croll's digi stamps on Etsy...you may recognise her work from Stampingbella...Huggabugs. Now i always find Stampingbella stamps a bit on the small side for me to work with , although i love them regardless... so having them available digi style is fab cos as you know you can resize them.

Such an adorable image...shall have to have more :)

Thanks for popping by xx

Now i'll explain a few answers...phew thats hard just using one word !

So working backwards... Facebook is a fairly new thing for me but it's a great way of keeping in touch and is effortless, so if you're not on there yet whatta ya waiting for ?...my fav place to eat is The Slater Arms in Bradley, a family run pub that serves the most delish Sunday Roast...Mr Anjelpoloi...i dont actually know this person but boy does he email me regular...one day i've won the lottery, the next would i help his sick mother and give him some cash...i mean come on i'm getting a tad bored of it now !...seem to always be at work now, not that i'm complaining of course...long time looking for work so am very happy and of course i'm in craft heaven :)...goes without saying O/H is my bestest friend....J makes me cry...teenagers are a NIGHTMARE....turqoise is a beautiful colour...Harvey Nicks...window shopping only till i claim my prize from Mr Anjelpoloi of course then i'm off on a mega spending spree...wanna come ?...not wearing a tiara, never have either...want a vehicle, slight hitch cos i cant drive though..I'm always missing someone, arnt we all ?...next bit explains really why my blogging has been hit and miss..overwhelmed...need to learn to say no or stop myself when i start to offer to do something above and beyond what is necessary, why do i do it ?..i dont know..friends...valued..ARE YOU STILL THERE ? :) pets....i love my cats..gonna skip a few...lol....where do i want to be in 6 years time...there is quite vague i suppose but honestly who knows where they'll be in 6 years, i could be living it up in New York, i could be destitute and living in a B&B or i could be right here..one things for certain, you just never know :)...my fear..ooooh this is a biggie for me, you see i dont fear death itself but if i try to imagine nothing forever i get this horrible sinking feeling and my heart lurches, not something to dwell on for too long i think... moving on, lol...fav drink is a belini, sparkling wine and peach puree....dream goal?...i dont want to be rich (thank you Mr Apopoodlopili )just content....lastly, thats if you've not fallen asleep :) my hobby, well i put Art because...well thats what it is, in whatever form be it cardmaking here or the first steps i've taken with journaling/painting..it's all creative expression in one way or another..

So i've waffled on...time for a cuppa before bed, thanks Laura and Rachel for this award xx

Couple of cards

I know, I know...no excuses :)

Here's a couple of cards i've managed to squeeze into my busy week, the first is following a sketch for the challenge here at Create4fun.

The stamp is from Diestodiefor a design by Gillian F Roberts 'Nativity'...just adorable :)

This one was just for fun, i LOVE the expressions on their faces, another fabulous digi from Mo Manning

papers are October afternoon, sentiment is a digi stamp from Papermakeup stamps

I decided to colour with prismas..love how you can give pretty colours a grungy tone with the pencils.

So my day out last week was fabulous...i took some pics to share but will save that for another post i think...also have to say thank you for awards i have been given recently...again i'm gonna save for another post...i just wanted to get some new cards on here...where does the time go ?!!!! I'm also busy learning how to knit...my poor fingers are paying the price today...and i've just signed up recently for one of Suzi Blu's online art classes...so excited to get started with this :) So as you can see lots going on behind the scene so to speak.

My apologies to dear friends who i've not emailed for yonks...shall catch up soon.

Right think i'll treat myself to a long soak in the tub then a few glasses of something nice before Xfactor...enjoy your weekend everyone xx

Still alive...

Hello :) well i wish i could say my long absences are due to travelling to far flung exotic places but no....tis just work ! The past month has been pretty hectic and i wont prattle on again explaining...honestly must take first prize for THE worst blogger at the mo. So to make up for it in a wee way i have not one but two cards to share today.

Both are Paperartsy stamps, the first is from a Nut and Meg plate...a sample i made for work on a Woodware round card blank, Making Memories papers, Bazzail strip and Papermania gems, and the second is the Noel 1 plate, Fancy pants papers, Habico ribbon and a button from my stash

So tomorrow is my day off, first one i've had for a while...got a special visitor coming so hoping to have a lovely day out somewhere and have a bit of retail therapy and perhaps a yummy tea ...cant wait !

Enjoy whats left of the week everyone and hope to be back again soon, thanks for all your lovely comments and for your patience, normal service will resume soon honestly xxx
