Happiest Birthday Wishes

Morning.... I'm up early today as so much to do.. My wandering suitcase returned yesterday morning which changed the days plans slightly and meant a large amount of washing and sorting needed to be done.
Today the gym (for the first time since I came back from hols) and then Sunday lunch is on the cards... Then I really need to make some batch Christmas cards .....

Enough waffling and onto today's card... I have used the Watercolour Wishes Card Kit from Stampin Up.  To be honest I bought this set purely because I loved the sentiment stamps in the set that are not available separately, but I decided I had to make some cards using all the other elements.  This one uses one of the card blanks where I have trimmed off the back and mounted on a coloured card blank.

I think I'll make some more up to give as a gift of note-lets for Christmas.

Have a great Sunday!

December 25

Morning... Yes I know it's been a while, I've been on holiday (and stranded in Sharm lol), couple of work trips and not much time at home since mid October.  I had hoped i would get back on track, but I never seem to have much time.....
A day of crafting planned for today, I thought I would start with this weeks Less Is More which is use Numbers!

Kept the card really simple... trying to ease my way back in slowly....

The month stamps from Lili Of The Valley have come in useful for this card and it is simply finished off with a die cut 25 and some doodlebug sequins.

I hope I'll have plenty to show you in the next few days and weeks....

Have a great Saturday!

Thinking Of You

Hi.. So my aim to blog more didn't really happen, life is a crazy as it was, but most of all my mojo has taken an extended vacation and I have no idea when it is thinking of returning.
Juggling everything when you are pretty much away from home Monday to Friday is hard work.. I never realised how much I did in an evening before.
So, although I will not be around every day, I will try and post a couple of creations a week and see how I get on.  Todays card is for Craft Stash ... using a Apple Blossom die .  You can find them here.

Hope you all have a great Sunday, my afternoon will be spent helping dad tidy up the back yard after having it renovated.
