Hoppy Birthday

It's been such a long while since I posted anything to my blog, nearly three months that I thought it time I at least put a few cards on here to show I'm still alive. So hopefully over the next week I will add a few of the cards I have been making. Normally by this time of year I am well and truly into Christmas mode if not finished with Christmas but this year I have not even started due to ill health once again. Guess I better get started soon or Christmas will be here and I will have no cards and horror of horrors would have to go and buy some.

This is the card I  made for my great nieces Christening last weekend. Now the date has passed it is safe to show. I used my Nestablities for this card.

Time for a natter

It has been so long since I last posted anything I thought it about time I did a quick update to say I am still here just had other things going on and I only have a very limited amount of energy per day to day anything.

Flower Power

Just popping by with another card I recently made. I ended up making several of these as I just love this new stamp I brought from Clarity Stamps. I coloured using promarkers and went for a spring coloured theme, but I think this card would look equally good in autumn or even Christmas colours. I may just have to make another one to see.

Getting Inky

I thought it was time to play and get all inky yesterday especially after watching hubby get all dirty moving a huge pile of earth left over from the builders. Why should he be the only one with dirty fingers. The electrician was also here finishing off so the power kept going on and off like a fiddlers elbow, so I needed to find something to do that didn't require electricity for a long period of time. This is a little brown notebook that I have had for a while but it looks much nicer now.

Penny Black

Just popping by with another card. I was recently asked to make a card with the theme of a penny black stamp. I deliberately kept it simple focusing on the 90 after all what a great age to reach.  I made the 90 and name to look like stamps added some backing paper and hey ho! one card.

3 Today

Well I can't believe I've not blogged anything since last year where has the time gone and there was me promising to be a better blogger next year. In my defence we have been trying to get the house straight after having the builders in and trying to find some suitable furniture for my new crafty area, which we have had no luck finding so far.  If it ever stops raining then the garden still needs sorting too not to mention a hundred and one other things that always seem to need doing.
This is a recent card I was asked to make.
