Inspiration, Colds and Days Off

I have some time off work... which is fab. But then I've caught a cold. Always happens that way doesn't it? This one is straight to my chest tho, no messing around with runny noses. meh... Hasn't stopped the creativity which seems to be flowing with ease at the mo. Last night I did a scrapbook LO and a hanging decoration. It did help that I had an extra crafting hour last night tho ;) Got to get some benefit from the clocks going back I spose, that and the fact that it was actually light when we woke up this morning.
Did a bit of craft shopping yesterday but all it's really made me do is think that I really do need a sewing machine and I rather like the look of this affordable little item. Hmmmm I might pop to John Lewis today....
Here's this week's card from Di, I have to say, she keeps my creativity flowing too. I now have November's sketches to play with :)
Have a lovely Sunday everyone x

Ever so slightly bonkers...

I must be.
I've said that I'll have a stall at the school Christmas Fayre. Cos working full time and looking after my family aren't enough of a challenge. Hmmmm, anyway, I kinda do like a challenge so I shall shut up and get on with making cards and other Christmas bits and bobs. And I'll hope I get enough to fill a table by the 12th Dec.
Bonkers.
Here's the card I made for Di's sketch for this week. Nice and girly pink...


And I just want to shout about a couple of other things before I go to bed.
The first one is Peet's blog. Oh. My. Goodness this woman is my card-making hero.....
And the other is some lovely digi stamps from Whimsie Doodles. I've bought some of these and coloured them in but I still need to make cards with them, so watch this space...

I've been lazy....

And not posted for some time. Lots happening and not a lot of time to relax, hence neglecting the blog for a while.
For completing the 7 cards on the Caarvarks Sketch fest I was given a special mention badge, so here it is....


I've also made a couple of cards that might be worth an upload, so here they are. The first pays homage to the wonderful Kim Hughes and her stunning stamps, which I buy from Cornish Heritage Farms.



The next was done to one of Di Hickman's sketches and has one of my favourite Hero Arts stamps on it :)




Right I have a card to finish and fingers to get inky (read: mucky). Night night xXx
