Moving Blogs (again!)

It's been a very long time since I last posted here, April 2012 infact.  It's been a hectic year what with work and family life and I just didn't seem to find the time to craft or blog but here's to a new year and a new crafty  So the first change will be the link to my new blog on wordpress, since blogger has been nothing but a pain in the butt.  It would be lovely to see you there, just click the link and see you in a wink ;)

Easter Cupcakes (Yum!)

It's not a card I know but thought I'd share them anyway since I did make them with my own fair sadly they are all gone now but very enjoyable they were too (yum).

I actually forced myself to make two cards I was asked to make last week but unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of them (gonk!) so can't show them :(

Hope you all have a nice week and enjoy the Easter break (I have two weeks off..yay!)

It's Been a While!

Just haven't felt like crafting very much lately, battling extreme tiredness and don't know why :(   Thought I'd share this card with you, I made it quite awhile ago for a competition and didn't even get around to sending it in the end.

It's made using a 'Nitwits' download, they really are fab and so worth the money.

Thanks to those of you who have still continued to visit my blog and I promise to try and get back to posting more often. ;)

A Challenge!

Omg, it seems like an age since I did a challenge card and I actually made this card over a week ago and only just managed to upload it (somethings never change.) So this week over at A Passion for Papertrey the theme is stripes. I didn't really have much PTI stash involving stripes only the stripe paper you can see in the background, hope it's enough ;)

I do love this stamp set 'Button Boutique' but haven't used it nearly enough, lack of mojo me thinks!

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a good weekend, we have sunshine here in Liverpool (yay!) Spring is on it's way :)

Coffee Time Birthday Card

One of the mums from my son's school celebrated her birthday awhile ago and it's safe to say she is a caffeine she does love her coffee! I found this download on the 'Clipart Fairy' website and immediately thought of Tracy and her coffee ;)

Close up of the cappuccino, I even used real cocoa powder (yum!)

Thanks for visiting :)

Bath Time Birthday Girl!

I made this card a few weeks ago for my sons friend (and neighbour) Kiera who was turning 14 and as we had bought her some goodies from 'Lush' I thought it was quite appropriate.

The image is from the 'Olly Fant' range by Kars and all the other bits are from my stash. Right, must go and get these children sorted out.

Thanks to all of you who stop by to visit my blog :)

If you've reached me here, then you made!!  It's been a bit of nightmare here but it's kinda sorted now, in the process of exporting my old blog to my new blog, my 13 year old son got rid of the old one and that meant I couldn't leave a link to the new one :(  it's probably going to take awhile and I may not get all of my followers back but, such is life ;)

Thank you to anyone who did manage to arrive here (Katina!) hahaha, hopefully more will follow in your footsteps ;)

NIGHTMARE!!!!!! My blog wont let me upload any more photo's, it says I have exceeded my limit on Picasa where all my pictures are stored. Turns out my hubby has moved our photo files onto Picasa so they don't use up space on the PC and slow it down and now it's FULL! (Arrrrrrrrh)

My son is sitting now making me my own google a/c and I'm afraid it looks like a new blog, just hoping he can work out how to transfer everything from my old blog :(

Will be back when it's all sorted ;)

Sweet Friend.

Just wanted to share a card I made for a friends birthday last week, I'm afraid it's totally CASed though from this one here.

Busy day a head, cleaning, washing, etc, etc!!!

Have a good weekend,

Array of Sunshine!

Oooow yes please! Can't wait till the weather gets a bit warmer and a bit more sunshine (but not too hot).

And on that note this is a sweet little card I made using the Stampin'Up! set 'Array of Sunshine' available to purchase in the main catalogue. I'm just loving the big flower which is great for decoupage and so easy to cut out


I think it's time I was going to bed, need my beauty

Elegant Ladies!

Before I purchased the 'petal cone' die from Stampin'Up! I wondered if I would ever find a use for it, well I couldn't have been more wrong. I have come across some fabulous ideas for this die whilst blog hopping but I think this is probably my favourite idea here and these are my take on it.

They really are elegant and could be adapted for so many different occasions. Hope you like them and they give you some super ideas and thanks again for dropping by :)

Sonic Birthday!

OMG, it's been over 2 months since I last posted here, no excuse just got caught up in everyday life. We didn't have a very good end or start to the year, my dad had a heart attack Christmas day but thankfully he's made a full recovery with the help of 'the top heart surgeon in Britain'. Yes he touched lucky and this guy actually fitted him with a stent which, the staff at Broadgreen Hospital in Liverpool told us he never does minor things like this now, only major heart surgery. Looks like my dad was in the right place at the right time.

Well I think I'm back (hopefully!) I made this card for my cousins little boy and as you probably guessed he is a big fan of the Wii and football so I thought this was quite appropriate.

Thanks to anyone who has been dropping by whilst I've been absent and hopefully I'll be back soon with another card.
