I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi guy I'm really really sorry for abandoning you all for the last two months but yes i am still around unfortunately i have had a nightmare couple of months, I'm glad to say everything is getting back to normal and hopefully i wont have to abandon you all for this long again,, where do i start well i have not really been right after auntie debs passing it has really hit us all hard, then on June the 1st my dad had a minor routine operation which turned out into a major op i wont bore you with the details but he then got a infection a week after and we had to rush him back in which was a awful experience i cant believe I'm 25yrs old and had never phoned a ambulance before until that day, dad had to stay in hospital for 3 days then he came home again where we then turned into nurses for the last 8 weeks, I'm pleased to say my dad is getting there now and virtually back to normal he has another 2 weeks off work but at least he is back driving now. because i have had to take time off work to look after dad work have really not been helpful and i have had to work back the time i have had off hence why i haven't been around if i wasn't looking after dad i was in work!!!!

On a good note i have had quite a few card orders to complete so have been busy with them and at least i have some things to show you, i have also tried my hand at exploding boxes and i have now made two and had a order for another so i must of done well lol

well i will add the photos over the next few days for you comments, just wanted to let you know I'm still here....

Lots of Birthday's This week so lots of Cards!!!

Well I have been busy making lots of cards for many people, I was asked by my mum's friend to make a special 1st birthday card for her Great grand daughter, the spec was in the night garden theme, pink and cream, that's where I started to panic how do i make a card special I went to pot everything I put together just didn't look right so I finally came up with this I decided as it was for a 1yr old i would try to make a Shaker Card so here it is what do you think??

The next 3 birthdays were all for the same family, yep they are all in the same week, My mum's best friend Kerrie was the big 40 on St Patrick's day and it was also her daughters 12th birthday, the Tuesday after was Kerrie's other daughters birthday who was 13 this time round!

Kerrie had all her children by Cesarean section and was twice given her birthday as the 1st date the hospital kindly moved it to the week after for the 1st child, but the 2nd child the hospital wouldn't moved the date so its like Christmas all over again!!

Here are the cards i made

A very very Late showing of my Valentine card

Yes ladies and gents I did say valentines card!!! As some of you may know I have recently split up with my boyfriend of 6yrs so why make a valentines card I hear you say??? well a few of my friends have also split up with partners so we are all single again and enjoying it immensely so as this would be the 1st year for a while that we wouldn't receive a card to our knowledge, one of my barmy mates came up with the idea to make a circle of love (yes you heard right) so we each had someone we had to buy for to make sure we all got a card and a little something for valentines day.

So here is the card I made .... i have to say im really impressed with the turn out of this card let me know what you think

Ingredients :

Cs- bazzill basics + papermaina
Hearts- stamped and heat embossed with
Sentiment- Stamp love set (cant remember who by)
Stamp- Penny Black
Medium- Prisma's with sansador
Ribbon- from stash
Closer look of image

Unfortunately my friend was meant to be picking everything up but she still hasn't. I wouldn't mind she only lives 4 houses around the corner but I think she may be coming from Australia it's taken her that long, which also meant my sister didn't get a card in the circle of love although she did get one from a secret admirer which was good!!


I'm back for good i promise

Hi folks, I'm really sorry I haven't been around for a while I have had a lot on at the moment but that is another story, anyway I have been making cards and purchasing craft goodies oops (I am naughty) so this may be a very long post so I apologise in advance just bear with me and keep awake as I always appreciate your comments and opinions and would like to know how I can improve!!

So Here Goes .....

My 1st card is one i made a few months ago for my friend who had recently been made redundant and was struggling to find a job she was seriously prepared to do absolutely anything as she just needed money as she was finding it extremely hard only have one wage coming in and two children to look after, which in this current climate there will be many more people in the same predicament at the mo which is very sad to hear, Well after many interviews for a range of positions Vicky has finally got a job working at Manchester Airport which is some thing she trained in at college a few (i mean many) years ago!!! So congratulations Vicky I'm so pleased for you she doesn't start training till next week but she was prepared to wait,

So here is the card i made:

Sorry about the quick photo she arrived at the house just as i was adding the finishing touches to the card!!!

Card Ingredients

Cs - bassil cs and papermaina
Stamp- Penny Black cat in bra stamp
Medium- Prisma's with Sansdor
Sentiment- pc created

Hi Folks

Yes i am still alive, and no i have not forgot you, i have been spying on you all from a distance just not had the time to post so i'm sorry i have neglegic you all for so long, i have still been crafting and have lots of things to show you just need to get some time to upload everything!!!

But i will and very soon, i have had a busy time of it with Christmas and New Year but need to get back in the swing of things now!!

Dad was due to go in hospital today for his operation so i booked the week off work took him there, where he was gowned up etc only to find out 4hrs later the operation was being cancelled as they have found my dad has a ear infection the surgeon give the OK to go ahead but the antitheses said no!! so the operation has now been cancelled for the 2ND time!! hopefully it will be 3rd time lucky next time!!

On a happy note I'm going away this weekend for a couple of days to Blackpool for a craft retreat with some of the girls from docrafts! I'm sure we will have a fantastic time and i can't wait to meet them all!!!

Any way will be back to soon with my creations
