...hubby has gone fishing I've got the kitchen floor washed, so going to sneak on here for a little card blogging and get back to some bits and pieces in the house.  Wish I was more organised around when to do my crafting/blogging in my 2 days off - I just seem to flit from one thing to another and never feel I have achieved anything - how do you structure days???

Anyhoo, here is a card I made for my mums friend:
Just a quick make with a LOTV image coloured with promarkers (I coloured this the other weekend at Janines new crafty club that I mentioned on my previous post).  The image has been matted onto baby blue bazzill and with the same card I have die cut the swirly bow and added a little pink gem.  The paper is Pink Petticoat which was a freebie in a magazine ages ago.

I would like to enter this into:

I love promarkers - pink/blue

The next card is one I've made just to have in (although really I need more emergency mens cards lol):

The image is a gorgeous wee stamp coloured with promarkers, matted onto a doily.  The backing papers are papermania matted onto black paper (I hope the black isnt too harsh - I wanted something striking - let me know what you think).  The sentiment is Craftwork cards.

I would like to enter this into:

Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Stampin for the weekend - anything goes.

Oh just to let you know I finished my male card from yesterday and also my little mouse cross-stitch - yay!!

Thanks for looking

Hello honeys...

... yoo hoo back from our trip to Henley and the washing and ironing is up to date, back into the swing of things with work and school, so let the crafting commence lol.

July is a busy month for birthdays and anniversaries so I really need to get my finger out and give my mojo a prod.  I have had a card half made on my desk since the weekend so I promise after I've typed this I will go and finish it (considering its needed for today... gulp!!).

Before, I went I promised a little stitchy update as well.  I've realised I've got a few projects on the go that I keep forgetting about because people keep tempting me with new patterns :-).  So hopefully by naming and shaming my UFO's it will motivate me to get them finished!!!  (Thats the plan anyway!)

So these are my Wip's the little mouse on the scooter is a pattern from a magazine that I wanted to make for Ians nephews little girls birthday that I am going to put on her birthday card.  The Friends Forever is one that I was working on before I went away and had forgotten as I'd started the little mouse so I must finish that one.  I first saw this on Junes blog and fell in love with it - especially with how June had finished it.  The gnome alphabet is stuck at S, so not much to go before thats finished and well the magician, goodness knows when that will get finished!!  He does seem to find his way back to the bottom of the to do list - I'm sure he'll get finished one day!

I do have one finish though:

I got a bit put off with this one with some other stitches that where in it that I hadnt done before and wasnt sure if they looked like how they should have done - it looks ok finished though - so I just need to make it into something now hmmmm.....

Right before I go I'll just show the quick fathers day card I made for my youngest to give to his dad, I havent entered this into any challenges, as I shamelessly pinched the idea from pinterest.

It was simply some black card matted onto a card blank then white card on top I typed the sentiment on word and then added the mustache with 3d sticky squares to the centre.  A very quick make and the layout could come in handy for any further quick cards that pop up!

Oooh must remember as well a couple of weekends ago I went to a new crafty club that Janine at Crafting Crackers blog started, there was six of us there doing a variety of crafts - so if you are in the Teesside area and fancy coming along contact Janine - she'd be happy to give any information for you to join us.

Thanks for reading, right must go and finish that card (hope the tennis doesnt distract me!)

Its oh so quiet...

... the mojo hasnt quite disappeared but has slowed down, but been having computer issues, and started to get ready for our annual jaunt to Henley so havent wanted to start too much.  So I'll be back soon with batteries charged, a stitchy update and news about a new crafty club I went to. 

Catch up with you all soon :-)
