Talented Trio Award

Wow! How chuffed am I, The ladies at Our Creative Corner have picked me as one of their Talented Trio for last week's Distressed to De-stress challenge. I am so honoured. Thank you so much.

I'm currently working on lots of things that I can't post at the moment, but I will be able to share them after next weekend.

Hope to be back with some more cards soon.

Happy Crafting,

Distressed Happy Birthday

A quick card just to get the mojo moving. The first pansies are blooming in my garden, so it had to be a pansy card. Such cheerful little flowers, they really make me feel like spring is just around the corner.

Today's card is for the Our Creative Corner Challenge, Distress to De-Stress. The paper is Prima Analee inked with lashings of Shabby Shutters Distress ink.

The focal image has been punched with the Martha Stewart Pansy around the page set. I love this punch its just so pretty.

Back soon, happy crafting,

Say Hello To Harry

Hi there. Long time no see. Just a quick post to introduce my new best friend, Harry. There, I've written his name down, so we can't change it again LOL.

Harry was originally called Cefa, (as in C for cat), which I thought was quite cute, but he is such a Houdini, that we decided to call him Harry instead. He's a rescue cat and is about 3 years old and I'm totally besotted by him. He has settled in so well that its just like he's always been with us. He's so gentle and affectionate with us even hubby is smitten too.

All my crafting friends know that, whilst I LOVE to make books, I don't 'do' 12x12 scrapbooking. Hmmm I think I might just have found a photo subject that might actually make me do some. Watch this space.......

Poor health has taken my mojo away over the last few weeks but I think its starting to return. If I disappear from blogland, you'll know why, but. hopefully things are about to turn around.

So, in the meantime, give thanks for all the wonderful little blessings of each day. It is so easy to take them for granted.

Back with a crafting post soon.
