Hello Everyone - What a Month!!

It seems an eternity since i've been able to blog! Finally BT have installed a new cable for our line, and fingers crossed we will have no further problems with our internet. I have sssooooo missed you all. I apologise for those who are still awaiting emails from me, I will be in touch just as soon as I can. I can not believe just how much ive missed my internet, what did we do before such wonderful technology?!!

Well my holiday seems but a distant memory, I wil download some photos later.

With no internet access, you would have thought, I would have got loads of crafting done! well, no such luck, having the children on school holidays has seen to that. I am infact on a time scale now, as I am meant to be taking the children roller skating today with my sister and her children. I would rather stay here and blog, but needs must! hee, hee!!

Anyway this is one of the cards I made using one of those cute toread character decoupage sheets. This little cutie actually reminds me of my sister, will have to find a photo so you can see for yourselves.
The papers are K & Co, the gems were a free gift from one of the craft magazines months ago.

This is another card using the beautiful Magnolia image which was sent to me by one of my lovely friends.

The flowers are punched out using my retro flower punches and the leaves are prima leaves. The papers are from the 'Boxer' range from Basic Grey.

I brought some Bella stamps while I was on holiday but havn't got round to using them yet, as well as some of the My Favourite Things range. Am looking forward to some quality crafting time when the children are back at school. So watch this space, and please get in touch so I know you havn't forgotten me!

Before I forget thank you to all the ladies in Karins swap who have sent me their cards, I now have your addresses and my cards will be on their way to you this week, thank you for your patience.

Hi Linda,

I'm so glad you're back on-line. I was wondering if you would ever get your computer back on-line!
