Offline for a while

Well, it's cheerio from me for a wee while as I am off on my holidays. Well it's a sort of holiday, we are going down to stay with my inlaws for just over a week. Whilst we are there though we have to go about finding new jobs, somewhere to live and new schools for the kids. My husband was told last Monday that he is being made redundant from his current job on 31st January, seeing as how the house we are staying in comes with the job we have decided that a move to pastures new is the best thing for us all. So wish me luck.

I am hoping to come back with some blog candy though, it will be my first ever so watch this space lol.

See you in just over a week.

Benn creating

Was rudely awoken this morning by our dog so I used my morning all by myself time to make a couple of cards. Also ordered a couple of stamps by Pink Gem (Janet) from the Spiral Whisper website and I can't wait till they arrive. Bet they come when I am away on my holidays next week lol.

This one is for my father in law, I always make him a card centered around steam trains, camera's or cars. The pictures aren't great, I'm not much of a photographer and the card looks a lot brighter and clearer in the flesh.

This one I made just for fun. I love this tilda image and sat for ages trying to come up with a design. Not quite happy with it but it will do, brain was a bit tired this morning.

Off on a blog hop, then I am going to hopefully sit down and make some more cards this afternoon.

Been a busy bee today

Had a few cards to make and finish off this afternoon, so I switched the laptop off and got on with it instead of blog hopping lol.

The first is for my hubby as it is our Wedding Anniversary tomorrow. I used photo's from our wedding album, one of the corsages keft over from last year and the card used was the same card that I made our Wedding Invites from.

The second one is for my oldest son who turns 16(boy does that make me feel old) whilst we are away on holiday next week.

This one is for my nephew, he mad on Liverpool Football Club. I made his brothers card last month and dedicated it to his favourite football team (Manchester United) so I had to make Thomas's dedicated to his favourite football team or there would have been a riot.
I just hope now that the recipients will like their respective cards.
Off on a blog hop now to see what everybody else has been up to lol

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Please pass this penguin along, he is for a very good and worthwhile cause.

Have I?........

....found my mojo? That's very good question, the quick answer is no, i don't think i have. Although it's not for the lack of trying and lots of help from all my friends. I have managed to make a card for the Lili of the Valley challenge though, not entirely happy with it though I know that I could do better. See what you think for yourself and please leave me a comment telling me what you think and where I could improve upon it. Many thanks to my friend CraftyVee for the image that I have used.

I've lost ....... mojo :0(, don't know where it has gone, will give reward if anyone can find it for me. Think I may have tidied it away when I was tidying up my craft area over the past couple of days lol. I wouldn't mind but I have 5 cards that I desparately need to make this weekend and there is no way I would be able to get away with buying shop ones. 1 is for my hubby for our 1st Wedding anniversary, 1 is for Sean (my youngest son) his birthday is on the 16th and he will be 11 another is for Jamie ( my oldest son) who will be 16 on the 23rd and 2 are for friends who would never forgive me if they didn't get a hand made card.

I have sat all afternoon looking through other bloggers sites and galleries also scanning the Docrafts gallery all for inspiration and guess what...... I am more confused than ever lol. Maybe if I stop fretting it will come back?

Anyway, off for another trail about, please let me know if you find it lurking about anywhere.
