Christmas Is Coming

I thought I would show you a few cards I have made recently, I decided to use stuff that I already had in my stash and done nothing with...I have got several Making Cards magazines that I have bought over the years and never used the free papers so hopefully I will be posting more soon.

 I have even made a start on some Christmas ones as it will soon be here!

Hope you like them

won't keep saying sorry

Well as the title says I won't keep saying sorry for not posting, that's all I seem to do on here,
 my laptop is dead, this computer is temperamental! and I have had a serious lack of mojo... nothing new, that was until I came across a wonderful craft group
called Creative Minds Craft Group thanks Elke and Sylvia
for boosting my mojo and giving me some inspiration.
Here is a card I made for my Sister and Brother in Law's
wedding anniversary last month, simple but I like it.

Then this week I made some samples for Sheila over at
 Crafty Ways using
Hot Of The Press Vintage Christmas Magazine 2012
It is a lovely magazine, only wish I had a printer so I
could print of some of the sentiments on the free disc.
the white bit is where someone ripped off the sellotape without care!

Hope you like them.

A little bit of Mojo!

Hello Everyone,
April is nearly over but what happened to March!
 I must of blinked and missed it. 
I thought you would like to know I have found a little
 bit of mojo, can you believe it?
I knew it was lurking around somewhere, 
just hiding very, very well!
The cards I have made are 5" x 5" as they are the only 
size of envelopes I have.
I hope you like them, please feel free to leave any comments.

Also some other news which you can see better over on Facebook.
I bought some beads of Jewellery and they run this competition called Chosen By You, where you send your choice of 10 items from their website and if they use them on their program, you get what has been made with them. Well I came home today and there was a parcel waiting, it was from them! my choices had been used on 22/04/12.
It has made my day.
This is the picture from Facebook.

Still Here

I thought I had better make an appearance whilst it is still February, just to let you know I am still here. I have been so busy with work that other things have been forgotten about, how sad is that.
I am going to be helping Sheila over at Crafty Ways with a Scrapbooking club or Crop as they are known. I'm really excited about that as I haven't done any in ages. Also going to be doing more Jewellery making and see if I can't stand a few stalls this year, you never know! I will keep you all updated as best I can.

Last year we did a Stamping Sunday event at Spondon Village Hall and it went really well, so we are going to be doing another one on Sunday 20th May 2012 from 10am till 4pm, keep that day free and I will update you when I know the full details.

I would just like to add a Thank you to everyone who sent Birthday cards and/or pressies.

Xbox Controller Card

Here is a tent card I made using an Xbox controller as a template, I had to pry it out of my son's hands though! I made the card for my Brother-in-law as it was his birthday yesterday. I think my nephew was very impressed with it, he even asked if he could play on it.
 I also wanted to share a picture I took of our tea, a humble pasta bake but I just loved the way it turned out.
Needless to say it was lovely.
