Ok, so lets try this again.

Hello everyone!!!

I’m back yet again, not that I have actually been anywhere this time but to say things have been a little busy would be an understatement not to mention the chaos that is my craft room at the moment! It is currently having a makeover and I cant wait till its all done. I will have to post some pics of my new creative space once its up and running.

I made these two cards while I was still at the farm. Lucky I did because I have done very little in the form of cardmaking or scrapbooking since coming home!

This first card was for some dear friends who welcomed their adorable baby boy into the world at the end of December. I used the same design that I used for Baby Luca’s card, I just changed the colour combo.

This card below is currently packed away somewhere safe in my spare room along with most of the contents of my craft room. I really must find it and get it in the post to a friend who had her little girl at the end of December. I think I can safely assume that she does not check out this blog and I can post a picture of this card before I have actually sent it.

I must apologise to those of you who have dropped by and noticed things were a little quiet. To be honest I was starting to get a little nervous seeing I had broken my New Year’s resolution already!!! Thanks Michelle who very nicely said to me at our team day “You need to update your blog!”

And while we are on the subject of Team Day and blogs, check out Michelle’s blog for the cards we all made at the last team day. We all took part in a Summer Mini Shoebox Swap!! It was lots of fun but I must say that I have never stamped so hard and talked so little in my entire stamping life!!… and I still didn’t get all cards done and I still have homework to do!!!  So if you pop over to Michelle’s you will get to see all the wonderful cards we made rather than waiting for me to finish mine!! (Thanks Mich … Hope you don’t mind ;))
