More cards

My first post of 2009 so Happy New Year. Not too much crafting has been done so far as we have been busy at home, my crafting clutter has been removed from the living room, in fact the room has been totally decluttered to make way for a new carpet. Before we had bits and pieces of carpet and a rug covering most of the floor but after over 3 years of living here we have a real fitted carpet, it looks so much nicer and tidier we have even got ourselves another sofa too, wil try and get some pictures soon.
So now when I craft I have to get out what I need or as I have been doing more, crafting in our bedroom, I have a nice big chest of drawers by my bedside, I was even crafting the other night straight after a shower still wrapped in a towel.
Anyway I still have loads more cards to do and have some fab new things including some card candy which are like faux brads from craftworkcards, you just attach with tiny foam pads or silicone glue and they come in so many yummy colours (and only £1 a pack) the ones I have used on these cards are from the iced gems pack they have yummy names like chocolate drops, toffee treats and more (are you hungry yet? lol).
I have got myself another stamp from cuddly buddly called Time for Tea and used it on my Thank you card, I need to get some more glossy accents as I think the teapot would look good with a glaze.
Anyway I hope you like the cards, I have promised myself to do more crafting this year and be a better blogger, I am even planning a blog candy giveaway later in the year (watch this space)

A card for Aimee

It was Aimee's 8th birthday on 28th December, I did this card before we went away in between the Christmas cards (I don't want to see one of those for a long time!).
I used one of her favorite images Tilda, which I coloured using the fab mica paints from The Artistic Stamper, card was something I picked up ages ago at a Craft Central (now gone).
Ribbon was some I got with the Blog candy from Amanda (SU), buttons I found in a 99p store which has started to do a few crafty bits *smile*.
Anyway Aimee had a fab birthday, My Mum, Aimee and myself got up early to go to M&S at 6 30(they opened at 6 and were really busy!)to pick up her birthday cake the day before her birthday (a Hedgehog).
