Where did the time go?

Omg, just over 2 months since I last blogged, I'm useless, but having said that, I haven't missed blogging either, with the summer hols and having to keep Shane amused, I didn't have much time to blog, plus I got hooked on Facebook, but I'm over it now!!! Inbetween FB and child rearing I managed to get a few cards made. I also bought a new table from Ikea, one of those ones where you pick the top and legs seperately, the legs ended up costing more than the table top :( but it's sturdier than my old table,and a mini stacker from Storage 4 Crafts. My room isn't how I want it yet, the problem is I keep chopping and changing my mind about how I want it to look, just when I think 'that's it' turns out it isn't. I'm aiming to get rid of the plastic drawers on wheels, but it's going to have to be done bit by bit....oh and I want a colour laser printer as well.

This is a variation on a card that was made at a craft workshop some time back. I think I made this for a RAK club that I'm in on FeeJ Designs

The stamp is a set by Inkadinkadoo 97622 Doodle Flowers and was coloured with Copics.

These were made for Shane's teacher and her assistant when he broke up for the holidays. It's Popcorn The Bear School Days by Crafters Companion, and again coloured with copics. The square was cut with MFD010 Nellies Square Die.

I was asked to make 2 money wallets for a friend's son and her grand-daughter, this is what I came up with, really easy peasy. The black one is Kanban card, edged with blue pearl card, though in the photo it's looks a different colour, punched with MS Embossed Zigzag, circles were done with nesties. The pink one was done using 'Parfait Pink' from Paper Adventures and pink pearl card, again nestie circles.

This easel card was an order for another friend, flowers were done using EK Success retro flower punches, the double sided paper which I really didn't want to use because it was so lush and I kept touching it :) is embossed on one side and is from the SEI Jolie Chocolat collection, this one is Chocolat Papillon, Cuttlebug Fancy Pants alphabet dies used for lettering.

Shy Bear 710M aka Tatty Ted from The Artful Stamper coloured with copics, nestie labels 4.

The kind of card I don't like to make, and thankfully I don't make many. Image is Penny Black 3636k Flying Stars, stamped onto black card and heat embossed with silver powder. Wording from Inca Stamps 5002H Thinking Of You.

Another RAK card. Card and frame from Craftwork Cards, flowers as before, gems from stash.

Another sympathy card. Image from Magenta 09156Q Roses, watercoloured with Whisper Pens and Art Kure Water Colour Sketch Brush. Wording as before.

The Forever Friend cards were really done in a hurry as I was trying to get the house and everything else sorted before we went on holiday, so I couldn't spend as much time as I wanted on them.

The Greeting Farm Twinkle Tots Madelynn, coloured with Promarkers.

Souffle the Duck from the Popcorn the Bear set School Days. I had to use peel offs, which I'm not very keen on using, coloured with copics and peel off marker pen. Nestie dies labels 4.
