... a VERY quick post as my youngest has a new dvd that he is wanting to settle down to watch!  I just wanted to quickly post this:

This is a card I made for a family friend who got a new job as a teaching assistant.  The image has been coloured with promarkers.   I won the papers so not sure of the make, I made the banner myself.

I would like to enter this into:

Totally Gorjuss - Anything goes - with something new - New Job!

Right gotta go!!

Thanks for looking

I cant believe its been  a month since I last posted!!! So this post might be a bit long!! Erm, not too sure where  the time has gone!!!  I'm afraid my mojo hasn't been wanting to play and having the pressure of last minute cards didn't help as I wasn't really pleased with my makes - so did have to resolve to sending bought cards :-(.  So as part of my New Years Resolution which never seems to stay resolved for very long I am going to try and make a Christmas card a month - so I dont have the same panic as this year - sounds good doesn't it - hmmmm wonder if I stick to it!!

I did make a Birthday card for Sarah which I was quite pleased with:

The image is Saturated Canary coloured with promarkers (can you tell I've been trying to practice shading in her hair lol) - the papers are Echo Park (I think)  and I made the sentiment myself, it finished off inside 'love on your birthday'.

I would like to enter this into:

Passion for promarkers - include a sentiment
Crafty Little fairies - anything goes
Crafty Creations - anything goes
Charisma cardz - anything goes.

I also managed a little break to Harrogate to go to the Knitting and Stitching show - my lovely hubby went with me - bless him - I think he secretly likes these shows he doesnt seem to mind wandering around one bit with me and is quite good at remembering where I've seen things.  I forgot to take my camera though so have no photos of the stalls and also forgot Mouse's  contact details as was hoping to meet up with her  :-( .  Its the first time I had been to this show and would definately save up and go again - there was a life size knitted nativity scene and it was fab!

Here's a little picture of my new stash - I was quite restrained really lol:

I got a couple of new cross stitch patterns and threads and as you may have noticed from previous posts I have a bit of a thing for bags and I bought a pattern and kit to make my own quilted bag - although I was a bit gutted when I got home to find there was no wadding in the kit and it wasnt mentioned at the time that I'd need to buy it seperately so I havent got round to starting it yet.  that can be a New Year project when I get round to ordering the wadding.  Then thats it I'm on a stitchy stash ban until I've used up what I have - cough- yeah right!

On the subject of stitching I've signed up again for Daffycats Tusal - you can find out all the info here.

Right I think thats about it - ah not too long!! apart from to wish you all a:

as I'm at work until 6 tomorrow - boooo!!! so dont think I'll get chance to blog again before Christmas - hope Santa is good to you all - lots of love.
