Time flies!!!

Have you missed me while I've been AWOL? :0(

Since Mum went into Hosptial last Thursday, It's been a bit hectic.
She isn't exactly ill, thank Heavens, she's had a small procedure done.
I say 'small', but it's causing lots of problems for her AND me.

The journey is taking 40mins each way!! It's rush hour(s) when I come out at 4pm!
PLUS, there are FOUR lots of roadworks going on between Macclesfield and Stepping Hill! *groan*.

I've made a few cards but not had the energy to blog them until now. :0)

I hope you think they were worth waiting for. ;0)

This one is an Anniversary card for my great friend Val.

I coloured the stamp with Crayolas and Sansador.
It's mounted on K & Company DP on Core-dinations CS.
I used a bit more of the lace again and
I punched the bottom of the matt with
my Fiskars punch, Threading Water.
I sponged the edges of the image to soften it.

Now to Christmas!! LOL

This one has a piece of Papermania 6"x6" mounted on green Bazzil CS.

I added 'Prancer' as I thought the top left was a bit sparse.

coloured him with Crayolas and Sansador and just tied a ribbon round it.

Didn't think it needed anything else. ;0)

I love this little bird from Creative Expressions..

I think he's a bird for all seasons, don't you?

Today he's a cute little Robin.

Mounted on DP from the 'Plum Pudding' A4 pad.

(From Craftwork Cards).

Coloured, as usual, with Crayolas and Sansador.

The round greeting is a Cuddly Buddly stamp.

Paper trimmed with my trusty Fiskars 'Threading Water' punch.

These two are made with my Winter Scene Cuttlebug folder.

You can't see it hardly, but there's a lot of sparkle

(Glamour Dust) on the rooftops

and down the embossed line at the left hand side.

So, as you see, I HAVE been making some cards and with a bit of luck,

may have a chance to join in a challenge or two soon. :0)

Thanks so much for stopping by.
