Hi honey... i'm home!

Can i firstly thank everyone who sent wishes recently with all the problems ive been having... got some major grey hairs to show for it all too! Thankfully, Pop's is now home and semi-recovered, he was almost a gonna for bit there... Dr. said it was a very close call, too close for comfort, but they sorted him out and it was a real awful time for all of us, but thank you for the kind wishes etc, much appreciated, big hug n kiss to you all.

Right, back to the nitty gritty! Last month, i designed this card for the Sugar and Spice design team, but with everything going on recently, havent had chance to post anything! but will hopefully catch up soon and be back to normal (if that is at all possible for me? lol) i've also, just posted this month's card if you wanted to pop over and have a look, the team of designers have all been working really hard, so why not go and have a look?

Also, been meaning to post these too, from the Tuesday night craft club, which i have been missing soooo much with everything going on, but hopefully, come Tuesday... i will return! We did silhouettes and i must admit, i was really pleased how they looked, another few to add to my stash of xmas cards for this year! ... still got tons to make tho!

I've also just finished designing the Downloads of the month for November for Crafter's Companion, will post the card samples i made shortly, but 1st November you can start to download them, so keep an eye out for them!

Well, im pleased to finally be back and with some good news, and hopefully catch you all soon? Hope your all well?
Take care

Tuesday night Craft club projects!

Well here are the projects i made last Tuesday at the Craft club, havent taken photos of this weeks one's yet, but will post them soon once i sort that!
We did masking, which i must admit i really liked doing, and was sooooo easy and such a good effect, think im going to be doing a fair bit of this technique... especially with all my new stamps ive got recently!

Apologies first....

Hi all, apologies first for lack of posting... had soooo much on lately, just havent had time so my apologies for that!
Well last weekend i went to Ally Pally, bought some goodies, which i must admit, i still havent unpacked! (told you... ive been too busy!) enjoyed Ally Pally, didnt spend huge amounts, but i did get some stamps, and do you know what... cant remember what else i got? oh! some of the new cuttlebug folders! lol
Pop's and the dog are doing well... pop still in plaster, dog still in bandage and having to go back to vet every other day for dressing change! foot looking good and fingers crossed should get lab results back soon!

Right, down to some crafting stuff now! I have managed (in all this hectic madness at the minute! lol) to get the downloads of the month done and they are now live on Crafters Companion site, ready to download, usual stuff, log in to download.
I have an owl thing at the minute, not sure why? but i just think they are adorable! so with the sets i created, these are the samples i made with them, hope you like them? and why not pop over and download your free set!
