HELLO...

I apologise for the lack of posts in the last few months and am going to commit to updating more frequently and you will pleased to know that I have a new camera and the piccies are back! I have not been crafting a lot and have somewhat lost my way - with working full time and the boys and a hubby, I was beginning to find it hard to fit any crafting in and before you know it months have passed and you are not crafting at all!
Hopefully I am beginning to change that again and am starting to craqaft and the fact that I am signed up with Stamp with Us for the summer should get me motivated...

So tonights post will be a number of things...

The first the card that I made for the first Stamp With Us challenge where we were tasked with making a card that used the following:

ONE COLOUR CARDSTOCK
STAMPS OF YOUR CHOICE
TWO INK COLOURS
WHITE OR NEUTRAL CARD STOCK
NO OTHER EMBELISHMENTS
NO RIBBON
YOU CAN USE PUNCHES
PRICKING TOOLS
SEWING - BUT NOTHING ELSE
here is the card I hope you like it!
I made this card for one of the ladies I work with - she asked me to make the card for her grandad who loves his garden - this is the card I made using clear stamps and my SU! markers building up the colour with each layer and then using an aquapainter to blend the colour and make them softer
I hope you like it!I covered this pad for my friend Sam using SU! DSP just too cheer her up as like myself she has not been crafting much and I am hoping this will get her juices flowing - sometimes when I am not in a crafty mood doing something completely different really motivates me and this worked for me this week I love the bright colour and I used the punches to layer up her initial! I haven't given her the pad yet as I am in my PJ's ( so I hope she doesn't see this befiore tomor )
Finally... LOL in a way I have kind of misssed this!
Here is a sneak peak of the shoebox swap I am doing tomorrow I loved preparing this and again I love the colours I have picked The cardstock is from the american catalogue an in colour baja breeze, there is also matching ribbon - LOVE IT...
I hope you like what you see all will be revealed in the next couple of days when I have all the other projects that we are doing I cannot wait - if you live in the Manchester area and would like to do a shoe box swap let me know - I am looking to arrange one in the next few weeks!
thanks for looking everyone and it is good to be back - all comments are appreciated!
