Crafts for Eternity

Decided that I would have a go at another blog challenge after all I have nothing to lose. I know my cards are not as good as I would like them to be but my mum always told me that "practise makes perfect". So this is the card I am going to use for the Crafts for Eternity challenge. This is a recipe challenge and you have to use the following -

The ingredients for this weeks recipe are:
1. Use the sketch below
2. Use a punch
3. add a knot or bow

I think I have managed to acheive this, the sketch I have followed, I added a double bow to the top left hand corner and I punched a scalloped circle and placed the Merry Christmas sentiment onto it. What do you think?

I am on a roll

Janet over at Pink Gem has amended the rules for her competition and let me know that we can enter as many cards as we want, woo hoo said I just the excuse I needed to make another card. Still not entirely happy but I am getting there and it is certainly engaging my mojo which is what I need right now lol. So I came up with this, pop on over to Janets blog and see what the competition is all about for yourself.

Amazing Blog Candy

Just been on a bit of a blog hop and came across the most amazing blog candy on the Crafters Kitchen blog. A Quickutz Silhouette , why not pop on over and see for yourself.

Finally made a card

Janet over at Pink Gem is holding a fab competition to win 6 Pink Gem Designs stamps. I love Janets stamps, they stamp perfect every time and are extremely cute. THis is the card that I am entering into her competition. I do not think it is good enough to be invited to be the guest designer but I do hope that it maybe wins me 6 of her fabulous stamps. If you have never seen Janet's stamps pop on over to her blog and see them for yourself, along with her stamps you can see some of her fabulous cards for yourself.

I am returning

after a very long absence. Not been crafting for almost a year now and have decided it is time to get back into it. Moved house again since I last posted and have even managed to get myself a very small craft room ;)

Have still been hovering around and checking out peoples blogs from time to time and have seen some gorgeous work out there.

I have made a couple of ATC's recently which I was quite pleased with, I have discovered colouring in again which is something I haven't done for many years and I now have a passion for promarker pens. Hope you like these pics.

Happy New Year

I would like to wish all who read my blog a Happy New Year, I know it is a bit late but this is the first 5 minutes I have had to myself since moving two and a half weeks ago. The move went fine but I am still surrounded by boxes trying to figure out exactly where I am going to put everything lol. Haven't got my craft stuff unpacked yet either (boo hoo) and I don't know where on earth I am going to put it when I do get it unpacked. I am now having serious craft withdrawal symptoms as I haven't crafted since November. There is so much catching up for me to do, you have all been extrememly busy over the festive period, many thanks to those of you who have either commented or emailed me over the past couple of weeks, I do apologise for next getting back in touch but I am sure you can appreciate how manic things are for me at the moment.

Well thats enough waffle from me just now, off to try and catch up on my blog hopping. Speak to you all soon.
