A Bit Of A Cheat!


Today, sweet friends, my card is a "bit of a cheat".  As you will probably know, I have been reorganising my craft space and have been unable to craft very much - mostly down to the fact that I can't find anything - you see, there was some order to my chaos!  So, the next few cards will probably be cards that I have made previously but not posted!

This card was made when I was trying out my new Penny Black wreath die and I took advantage of making another Christmas card for this years stash.





I cut the wreath from gold foil card and the bow out of red foil card.  Then, I embossed the sentiment in gold sparkle embossing powder - which, on reflection, was a mistake, I don't like it and wish I had embossed in in just metallic gold, but it is what it is!  Onward with the organising!

Have a wonderful weekend folks!

My Time With Family

Well folks, no card today, as you will know, we had lovely stepdaughter and grandson Max down for a few days and time was spent (more importantly) with them.  Pictures and short video clips of Max can be seen on my Instagram HERE  

The other thing that happened was, Beck helped me start organising my craft space!  I have never shown my craft space as it is in an appalling state. and I have been too overwhelmed by the sheer size of the task to tackle it!   That is going to change!  I am moving over to one of the small bedrooms, so the bed is still in there at present, but once that goes, I will be able to buy some storage units and put the rest in there, I have already ordered a Raskog cart, due to arrive next Friday Here are the pictures so far.

Going AWOL For A Week!


I know, I know, no cards for weeks, then suddenly . . . two in two days!  The reason being, we have my step-daughter and step-grandson visiting until the weekend!  Obviously I won't be doing any crafting until the weekend now.  So, I thought I'd better pop on to explain, as I have loads of catching up with blogging buddies to be doing and I don't want them to think I have disappeared off the face of the earth!  I WILL be replying to you soon . . . I promise and thank you very much for your e-mails!

Onwards . . . yes, another quick 2017 Christmas Card!






That is it for this week, until next week my friends, thanks for your visits in the meantime, and I will catch up with you all next week, have a great one and wonderful weekend coming up!  Love you all!
