I have every intention to post, but life as a funny way of getting in the way. My life is really busy at the moment and will continue to be so into the near future. Whilst I try to get myself organised, I will try and continue posting as much as I can and carry on trying to digest lifes obstacles, bad news, I will do my best in between to carry on posting as and when I can.

In the meanwhile, I will not be doing my Me To You Saturdays, Forever Friends Sunday or Penny Black Mondays until I am able to do. I used to be making 12 cards easily in a week. At the moment, I am lucky if I am able to make one.

Hi there, it's been a long while since I have participated in WOYWW and I have missed it. I have not just had the time to join in. So I have returned for this week. Not sure, how many weeks I will be doing this, but I will try more often from now to join in. It was sure fun having a noise at other peoples blog.

The first pic is my actual workspace. As you can see i have done some Card Patchwork and zig zag stitching. These I will be using for the weekend for Me To You and Forever Friends Cards. The only thing left to decide is which image I will use out of the many I already own!

As you can see I have a distress ink on my desktop with an applicator. I have since last spoken to you all, fallen in love with these. I have used it to do the sky in the digi image, which is my new love digi images. No stamping, no ink pads, no mess and no storage issues. This one is called Pickalillie, and I got mine from here

The second picture I just wanted to show my collection of Distress Ink Pads, i have more which I can no longer fit on this shelf so I have to think of a new storage solution - any ideas?

Catch up with you soon, I will try to get around to as many blogs as I can. Take Care folks.

Penny Black Monday Week 25

Hi guys, welcome to Week 25 of Penny Black Mondays. A quarter of a century, wow. If you are like me and have unused stamps that you wish to use and get your moneys worth. Feel free to join me, and leave me a message. I will link back to your blog.

This weeks card, although looks simple took a lot of effort. Each heart has been 3d with use of Creative Expressions Pearlescent PVA Glue, then 3D Glossy Accents on top to make them pop! I really enjoyed this card, and inspiration came from the Design Team, in particular Jill. I hope she likes this card to.

I have been a really bad blogger, I planned to get to all of your lovely blogs last week, but orders took up my time. After finishing a days work at the office, then doing a days work at home, and then orders I was so tired to make a card for me or blog. But hopefully things are back to normal this week.

I would like to enter this card into:

No Forever Friends Sunday or Me To You Saturday This Week

Hi there, this week there will be no Me To You Saturday or Forever Friends Sunday, I have been really busy with Ebay and keeping up with orders, I have not had much time for anything else. When I have been finished with orders, i have no energy for anything else. One morning, I completely forgot to have breakfast and only realised later when I felt so light headed and sick.

There will be a Penny Black Monday tomorrow, stay tuned, and business will be returned to normal next week.

Me To You Saturdays Week 26

Just discovered today that my local craft shop, Kims Craft is closing its branch in Hinckley at the end of May. It came with shock, they are doing well but some dispute with the landlord and the lease. Which is an awful shame, I thoroughly enjoyed demonstrating for the shop.

Welcome to week 26 of my Me To You Saturdays. I hope you enjoy this, it is a very short post and another candle from me. I hope you enjoy. Sorry for the quality of the pic, it was taken in a rush and I no longer have the candle to retake another pic.

Products used:
Me To You Sitting Bear Stamp
Bear - Cool Grey 2 and Cool Grey 1
Nose - Pastel Blue
