It's been a while!

Thursday, 2 February 2012
My word, I can't believe that I've not posted since just before Christmas.  I am truly very sorry but in all honesty, I haven't really crafted or felt like it so took a bit of a break.  I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas and the first month of the new year has been kind to you.

I finally have a date for my operation.  It's scheduled for 16th February and I'm keeping everything crossed that it doesn't get cancelled.  I'm currently trying to fight a cold!  I'm also in the middle of changing my craft room around.  The double bed has gone and has been replaced by a sofa bed, I have furniture coming from IKEA and I'm also giving away a fair bit of my old stash to the childrens ward at my local hospital.  The aim is to get it all finished before I go in for my op because I won't be able to much for quite a while afterwards.

You may be surprised to hear after all that that I have actually made a card!  I was asked by a friend to make a card for her daughters friend's birthday.  I took the opportunity to make it fairly girly for me and used one of the my old Miss Anya stamps for the very first time (shock horror)!  The papers are from the gorgeous Bumbleberry Cottage Nitwit set and the cardstock is Core'dinations.

Stamps: Miss Anya Collection and Woodware sentiments; Inks: Copics & Memento Tuxedo Black
DP & CS: Bumbleberry Cottage - Nitwits, Core'dinations; Tools: D'vine Swirls CB folder, Label 4 Dies

Considering it's been a while since I made a card, I was really pleased with how this turned out, esepcially the colouring. I have been colouring a few images up ready to make some cards, so hopefully it won't be too long before I have some more to show.

I will try and do some blog hopping this evening whilst watching Masterchef!

Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.
