Daisy and Dandelion

My first crafty purchase of this year (well not quite lol) was the Daisy and Dandelion CD, I have a few D&D stamps but just had to have the CD.
As I haven't been doing much cardmaking of late I thought I would use this CD to make some very quick and easy cards, nothing too complicated or long winded. I have left a lot quite plain and can add further embellishments if and when needed.
Anyway here are a few of the cards, all made in one day.

Still here

I am still around but have had a very busy time the past few months, Christmas kept me very busy (well more the build up). My Nan passed away on 15th December so Christmas was a little quiet this year. Also my youngest daughter Aimee turned 10 the end of 2010. Now the girls are back at school things are starting to get more organised at home, I can start some crafting again.
I have managed to make a few cards for the hospice on the Isle of Wight that made my Nan's last few days a little easier.
Anyway hopefully in the next week or two I should be back to crafting and blogging more.
A belated Happy New Year.

One of the baby cards didn't upload so here it is......It just had to be the on with the peel offs too lol

Baby Cards

One of the Mum's Aimee and I walk to school with, had a baby girl last month, Aaiya (Rhymes like Hiya) had such an unusual name I just had to include it on out card, another Mum asked me to make her a card as well. Aaiya has a big brother and I did not want to leave him out, the idea for a Big Brother card came from when Aimee was born my Mum got her a Big Sister T shirt.
I made the baby cards the day before my Sundae of Seasons Cd arrived so I used bits and pieces from my stash (including the dreaded peel off which I really don't like using much) the Big Brother cards have been made using Sundae of Seasons and Not for Girls CDs (I just love the Coool Tweets).
So here they are, four cards in one go, I promise I will blog again very soon.

I am back!

I have been neglecting my blog since the the end of the summer. Now it's nearly the end of the half term holidays, the girls have been away on the Isle of Wight, back tomorrow in time for Trick or Treating.
Anyway I have been busy making cards, not just for Birthdays but for Christmas too (yes the dreaded C word).
I have been keeping my printer VERY busy of late as I am just addicted to crafting CDs, my favorite at the moment is the latest from Polkadoodles (who else lol) Sundae of Seasons. If you haven't seen it yet, just go and visit and click on the gallery, you will see loads of fab inspiration from Nikky and her DT.
Anyway as it's Halloween tomorrow I though my first showing in a while would be the Goody bags I have done for tomorrow just for Kathryn, Aimee and some of their friends, all elements from Polkadoodles Sundae of Seasons and the Halloween Download available from the website.

Another Calender

Well the summer holidays are over, the girls have just finished their first week back at school.
I can now get back to crafting. I am really loving easel cards at the moment and made another calender. I used elements from a papermania large card decoupage to make this one (sunflowers are one of Aimee's favourite flowers).

On holiday but still crafting

The past few weeks have been very busy, preparing for the summer holidays and all the activities that go on before the schools break up for the summer.
We are coming to the end of our first week away on the Isle of Wight, it is only the last couple of days I have managed to get any crafting done.
Yesterday I visited one of the many crafts shops on the Island and found some 2011 calenders so I just had to make one last night.
I have just used a simple easel card to make my calender and nothing fancy just some papers and I have finished it with some glitter glue (just a flitter on the butterflies).
My Mum has kindly given me her old digital camera which is far better than my old one so I can now take decent pictures of ALL of my cards as I could never get anything but regular cards in the scanner.
I will also be posting some pictures from our holiday while we are here, these to follow soon.
