I'm really really sorry I've not been around since march, had lots going on, too much to mention, but mainly working, i have not had many hours free as i would like to have had, but i have been crafting along the way, i have got plenty of orders coming out of my ears, i have Christmas cards obs, birthday cards, my friends wedding invites, candles and some trinket boxes, so I'm going to be a very busy bee in the not so distant future.
however i have recently made some cards, so i will hopefully show you in the coming days.....
here is a couple to start with, i was asked to make two cards for twin boys, a christening card and a 1st birthday card as they were on the same day.

I have spent the weekend at a Craft Retreat in Prestatyn, organised by the lovely Patsi, who did a tremendous job organising the whole weekend. We all arrived on Friday, had a lovely tea and then the drinks flowed. Saturday we crafted all day, completing challenges and watching demos by Patsi, Shell and Nat, Sunday was the same as sat with demo's by Sally-Anne and Sharon. I took part in all of the challenges and made 6 cards, which is a first for me!!!!
I will be back later to upload the pics of the cards i made!!!
The challenge Sally-Ann gave us for this card was to make a shaped easel card but as a added extra we could only use 6 different items, hence the same image. Sally-Ann showed us a range of different shapes including a brilliant heart shaped card.
i used a Hangler and Strangler image which i coloured using my new promarkers and distressed with distress inks, the papers are My minds eye.. i just love this pack, ribbon and card candy from stash.
This my box card made following a demo by Shell, I'm very impressed with my creation i didn't think i would be able to make one myself but it wasn't as hard to make as i thought it would be,

I have really been neglecting you all haven't I!!! I'm really sorry i really am.
I promise from now on i am going to make a effort to regularly update my blog and show you my creations.
I have not been on here for over a year for many reasons, a new job, family problems and other commitments. The last you heard my dad was poorly after a op, well he was doing great until he had a heart attack, another operation followed and fingers crossed his heart is doing fine, he has even given up smoking which i thought would never be possible, so as u can see the last couples of years have been a nightmare and so craft time was very limited and i lost my mojo :-(
I am now looking to get back into crafting properly, and going to spend more time making cards. i have lots of ear ache from fellow crafts who are more than happy to have mt craft sash off me if i don't use it any time soon and i cant be having that now can i.
I am waiting for a couple of parcels to arrive, i asked my fella for some pro markers for my birthday which is fast approaching, so I'm guessing there is some on there way I'm so excited!!. I have also placed a order with Wild Orchid Crafts which should be delivered this week.
So watch this space for more posts to follow.....
