I'm back again!!! this is a card that I made using some new 3d glue that I brought the other day and some papers that I brought so long ago and have never used I really love them but was never to sure what to use them for.
I want to enter this in to the simon says stamp and show challenge

Got a little bit bored of doing men's cards so I had to do one for a little girl, I think this is a stamping Bella stamp I've had it quite a long time and always forget about it, but really love it once it's stamped.
I am pleased to say that I went shopping and got most of the kids stuff for school, it's quite scary how much it all cost but at least I don't have to panic about it now.

The summer holidays just seem to be flying by 1 week today and my girls go back to school and I haven't even started buying their school uniform yet.
This is a little card that I made using a Lily of the Valley stamp it's so cute and I found this paper in a local craft shop which I loved and just had to get!!!!

Afternoon, hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend. I'm off out tonight to stay with my friend down in Hove and on Monday my Mum is having a party, so it should be a good weekend.
This is a male card, I manage to make one!!! It's a stamping Bella stamp that I've had for quite a while and always seem to fall back on for a male birthday, I think it suits most men.

Morning, hope your all well, just a quick post cause I'm off to see my sister in Hailsham today. We were going to go to the beach in Eastbourne and play Crazy Golf, but the weather is not being kind to us today, so we will have to have a rethink.
I have started to make some male cards but I thought I would start with one for a little boy because I love this image and have not had a go at using it yet, I'm not very pleased with the overall finish of the card I think it needs a bit more, but the image is fab.
Hope you all have a good day.xxxx

I managed to  get both cards made but as you can see I cheated a bit, I used the same design for both cards but just used a different sentiment , I hope they like them. I was having a look through my cards that I have already made and realised that I don't have many for males so I am setting myself a little challenge to try and make some. Hope you're all having a fab

Morning everyone, how are you? hope everyone is well.
I'm starting to get back into crafting again it seems such a long time, I have had a quick look at some of your blogs and there are some fab cards out there which is scaring me a little bit at the moment.
This is a quick card that I made using a Pink Gem stamp and some paper I found in my local craft shop, I'm off to make some cards because both my sisters have asked me for a card each, one wants an anniversary card and the other wants an engagement

Hi everyone hope you are all well, it seems such a long time since I have been about, but I have had great fun staying at my brothers house for a little holiday. This first picture is in Shaftsbury, it was a lovely town and some may recognize this hill from a famous advert?
 This one was taken when we went for a walk in the New Forest near Linwood it's so beautiful I loved it.
 This is a picture of me and the hubby I think it's one of the only picture's of us together because I'm always the one on the other side of the camera.
 One of the main reasons the kids wanted to go to the New Forest was to see soon ponies and we were very lucky to find quite a few, this one is one that almost stepped out in front of the car and scared all of us.
and the last picture is of a Monkey we saw when we went to Monkey world. I do have about 500 pictures that I took and this is just some of the things that we got up to , but I'm sure it would get a little bit boring for me to share all that with you!!

Just a quick post this morning to show you a card that a made a while ago for my friends birthday, it's not as great as i was hoping it to turn out like but I was quite limited for time with this

Morning everyone, hope your having a good day!! It's raining here in Sussex and I would normally think that it means a whole day of crafting, but instead I think it's going to mean a whole day of course work, not nearly as much fun. I made this card the other day using the free stamp set from a magazine last month and the paper is just scraps from my stash. Every now and then I try to use some of my scrap paper up that are sitting in a large box, but I can never resist all the lovely pattern papers that are available. I did pop to The Glitter Pot yesterday to pick up some ribbon but also came away with a new pad of pattern paper, it is a Christmas one so I might try to get started on some Christmas cards soon.

I love this stamp and not really used it much so I thought I would use up some scrap paper that I found that is actually part of the same set, I was not sure if this going to be a bit to busy but I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out.
The start to this week has already been busy, we went over to my sister-in-law's yesterday and played in the paddling pool and then ended up having a BBQ in the evening, and then today I have taken my kids and my nephew to the Bluebell Railway and went for a ride on a steam train. Going to have to start thinking about next week cause we are going to be staying with my brother in the New Forest which means I've got to get a lot of washing done, as well as staying on track with my course!!
