Good morning, although quite whats good about it im not really sure. It is really dull and overcast this morning, not likely to get to the zoo today, unfortunately. It is so good to be back online, I think i've finally caught up with all my emails, all I need now is some quality time to craft.

I can not believe Jasmine goes back to school on Tuesday, where have the summer holidays gone? It has been such miserable weather for them, with no chance of getting to the coast! This week I have been busily getting Jasmines new school uniform together, why did I leave it to the last minute????! I really should get myself more organized.

Talking of getting myself organized I am determined to start making my christmas cards next month. I have been catching up with your blogs and felt quite humbled at the fact that so many of you have already started your christmas cards, how organized is that? Last year I was so badly organized that I ended up buying some cards, yes, I know that is terrible, but true im afraid. It wont happen this year as with so many inspirational friends now online, I will feel more inspired to make all my own.

Well I finally finished this cute Tilda card, it's taken a week on and off. Not completely happy with it as it feels like its missing something, but not quite sure what it is. Any suggestions please let me know, always open to suggestions.

Now before I forget, I don't know if any of you ladies know of a good cause that may be interested in receiving some of my cards? I have a pile that I would like a new home for, not so detailed as some of mine but they might make a few pence with a good selling technique!!! I don't really sell many of my cards as I dont have the confidence to push them but neither do I have the room to store them all, so if anyone can help me I would be very grateful.

Am hoping to post some of my holiday photos later today, so if you are interested please come back. Must sort out the childrens breakfast now, don't want them fading away!

Deb said...

your card is beautiful, just perfect. I sometimes think when a card has taken a long time to make you get too used to it and end up not seeing the beauty in it anymore, my theory anyway!
