Break Away

Saturday, 19 September 2009
Sorry it's been so long since I last posted. Thank you for all the lovely supportive messages I have received with regards to my last post. I'm still not feeling overly inspired, although I have made a few cards since that post.

I have a week away with Jon to look forward to this week. We're off to one of my favourite places as a child, Shanklin on the Isle of Wight tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to it. Hopefully this break away will be just what I need and I'll come back raring to go.

I hope you'll all come back once I start posting again.

Has anyone seen my mojo....??

Sunday, 13 September 2009
It seems to have deserted me this past week and no matter what I put in front of me, I don't seem to feel inspired. I want to make all these lovely gifts to possibly try and sell but I don't seem to be able to come up with anything as amazing as some fantastic crafters out there. A few of our fellow crafters never seem to stop amazing me with the ideas they come up with, but I don't think I will ever be able to come up with anything anywhere near as good. I feel like I lack imagination.

I've wanted to be on a DT but, for the reason last mentioned, I've never gone for anything as I just don't think I would ever be good enough.

Am I really cut out for this...?

Another Popcorn Card.....

Sunday, 6 September 2009
Sorry, had to use this gorgeous little bear again. I hope you're not getting sick of him as I've a feeling I'm not done yet!!

It's a very good friend of mines birthday on Wednesday and I wanted to make her a special card as she's been having a bit of a tough time at the moment. I couldn't think of anything better to use than my Popcorn Bear cd from Crafters Companion. This card is another large one, measuring 8" x 8".
All products, with the exception of the ribbon and roses, are from Crafters Companion.

I've not put a sentiment on the front as I thought it looked fine on its own, but I would really like to know your opinions.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, I can't believe it's almost Monday again! Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment as they are greatly appreciated.

What do you think...???

I fancied a change for my blog and have wanted a 3 column layout for a while. I had to play around a bit with the coding to get everything to fit properly and that was a challenge as I've not done HTML in a while!!

I would love to know what you think....

Hearts and Flowers - SCSC #48 & PBSC #65

Saturday, 5 September 2009
It's mine and Jon's 2nd wedding anniversary next Tuesday and I can't believe how quickly the time has gone! Anyway, I made this card a couple of days ago for Jon but hadn't got round to posting it. After checking out the challenge for this weeks Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge I couldn't believe my luck - it's to include Hearts and Flowers! It also fits the Penny Black Challenge which is Hearts Desire.

The hearts on the card are on the embossed panel, the MS valentines punch, die cut hearts and heart gems. The flowers are part of the stamped image (I hope that's ok) either side at the top of the swing.
Stamp: Furry Embrace - Penny Black; Inks: Memento TB, Copics;
CS: Core'dinations, white CS; Tools: Love Language Comb - CB, MS Valentine Lace Punch;
Embellishments: Papermania Heart Gems

I know he will love it as he loves every card I make, although sometimes I wonder if he's a little biased! He takes an interest in my hobby, wanting to see all my creations and he likes coming to the NEC every year to me and points things out that he thinks might be useful. I'm so lucky to have someone as wonderful as him.

Okay, that's enough soppy stuff, don't want to make you feel ill! I hope you're all having a lovely weekend whatever you're doing. Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment as they are greatly appreciated.
