Sorry it's been so long since my last post the time just seems to be flying by. I have finished my level 2 in supporting teaching and have now just started my level 3 which involves a lot of work over the next 6 months.
I have also been doing a few bits with the kids now they are on their summer holidays we have been swimming, to the park, up the woods and had a day making animal cakes which I do have pictures of and I will post later.
This simple card is what I made for the teacher at school that I was working with, she is really lovely and very helpful so I just wanted to thank her for all her help, I'm hoping to go back and work with her next term. Hope you all have a lovely weekend and hopefully I will be back soon.

Hi I'm back again!!! I have made this card using distressing inks, this is the first time that I've tried colouring with them and I'm quite pleased for a first attempted. I found this paper in my stash of stuff I think I got it from The Brighton Craft Show and it just seemed to fit, the little charm I have had for years and have been able to use at last!

Morning everyone hope your all well. This is my only day off this week so I have just run round and done some house work and now I'm going to spend the rest of it crafting!!!
This is a card I made last night using one of my new LOTV stamps and I think they are gorgeous. Hopefully I will be back later to show you what I got made
I'm going to enter this into divas by design challenge which is pastels.

I have started making some presents for Larna's teachers, this is a little box with some note cards in them not sure what else to make them yet. I want to enter this into my mums craft shop challenges which has a theme of swirls and pearls and as you can see I added swirls to the top of the box and pearls to the top of my cards (I don't think you can see that very well in this picture sorry)
I'm off to try and change a pair of jeans into flares because I have been invited to the teachers end of term party next Friday which has a 70's theme!!!!

Hello everyone, hope your all well. I was really disappointed to not even get an interview for the job up at school, I have been told there were about 30 applicants so it's not really a surprise. Never mind hopefully another one will come up.
I was playing the other day with another boys card and this is what I came up with, hope you

Hi hope everyone is having a great day, been busy up at school today, there is so much to do before the end of term. I'm really sorry about the poor quality of these pictures, I really must buy myself a camera one day!!
This is a card a made a while ago for my God daughters birthday, she loves butterflies and the colour purple and I'm pleased to say she really liked it. I would have liked to have changed the butterfly and gone a little smaller but I don't have one, but she did not notice.

Morning everyone, hope your all well. I went out for a few drinks last night for a friends birthday and my head is a little sore!!!
 I made this card for A gem of a challenge this week it's theme is let's hear it for the boys. I love this boat paper it's a shame I covered so much of it up. I'm hoping to find time today to make another card, but I've got to go shopping and finish the last of my course work so I had better get on with it. Hope you all have a fab

Want to be in with a chance of winning some great prizes? Head over to Ladybug Crafts and see what goodies there are all you have to do is be a follower if your not already and comment on the post.

What a mess, but this is where I do my crafting, I wish I had my own room but we just don't have the space so half of it is on the kitchen table and the rest is in the living room. The reason I'm showing you this is because over at Stamping Caz she's asking to see your craft space.

Hi I'm back again!!! this is a card that I made this afternoon for Cup cake Craft Challenge I know it's very simple but I found this really hard to do. I'm off now to put Larna to bed.

Does anyone else feel quite pleased with a card and then view it on the computer and is then not so sure about it? This is one of them, I made this for the Lily of the Valley Challenge I think the colour is quite a bit darker then it is in real life and I think it might need a bit more bling, anyway enough moaning. I made this with a Lily of the Valley stamp and My Minds Eye paper, don't think you can tell from the picture but I have add some Flower Soft in polar white and some glitter glue to the wings.
I'm off to do a bit more crafting before I go up to school, hope you all have a fab

Just a quick card and post from me today, I've been so busy trying to finish my course off before the end of term (I'm almost there) and have applied for a job at school, fingers crossed cause I know someone else who has applied for the same job and she has more qualifications than me.
Anyway hope your day is going well and hopefully I'll be back

Time just seems to be flying by at the moment, 1st July? The kids have only got 3 weeks left at school it's mad.
This is a card I have made for a friends birthday this weekend, I thought I would have a go at some different colours for a change and I don't think it looks to bad.
Hope everyone has a lovely
