Afternoon All
Well ... can you believe it ... hubby came home last night and said another member of his team had had a baby .. a girl this time... and can I make another card!
He loved the one I made yesterday so I just did exactly the same ... but in pink :)

All the details are the same as yesterday but I've used a different sentiment from the Baby Lines set of 6 ... these are now available to buy on my website Crafts 4 You .. HERE
Just love this image and may well possibly use it every time I have to make a new baby card LOL
Catch up with you soon

Hi all!!
Well ... this is the first card I've made in over THREE WEEKS!!!!
Yesterday hubby asked me to make him a card for one of his team who have just had a baby boy ... if he had asked me last week I would have said "go buy one" but today I wanted to make one ... I'm so happy I'm getting back to normal ... I missed my crafting!!!

I love this Sugar Nellie's adorable baby digi download .. it has to be one of my fave baby images and I've simply added a pale flesh colour and blue to his hat - you can download it HERE at Funky Kits.  The papers are from Nitwits GRINS & GIGGLES, the sentiment is one of mine and will be available at CRAFTS 4 YOU very shortly and I've embellished with card candy and a spacer/gem brad :)
Hope you like my "getting back to crafting" card LOL
Catch up with you soon

A few months ago Complete Cardmaking got in touch with me and asked me if I would like to do a feature in their magazine - WOW!!!

We have a 6 Page Spread!!!!!
Thank you so much girls for your help and hard work you are fab!!!!!!

and to help celebrate the fact that we've been published there is a BANK HOLIDAY BONANZA on at CRAFTS 4 YOU this Bank Holiday Weekend

Hi All
Just wanted to let you all know why I haven't been around ... I've been really unwell for the past week and a half and have been unable to do pretty much anything ... hence no blog posts :(
Still struggling to get back to normal and had to cancel all my classes for the time being ... I'm so sorry ladies!!
Regarding crafting .... I haven't even sat at my desk for over a week and did something yesterday I haven't done in over 7 years .... I BOUGHT A BIRTHDAY CARD!!!!!
OMG I hated it!!!!! but just haven't had any inspiration or inclination to craft at all :(
Hopefully I'll be back soon but just wanted to let you all know

Good Morning All
Gorgeous day here in Essex ... although I won't see much of it as I have 3 classes to prepare for next week plus a pile of ironing to do!! Sigh ....... oh well :)
It's midway through the TOTALLY TILDA challenge so you still have a week to enter :)
This time it's a recipe for you to follow ....
You MUST use all 4 and of course our beloved Tilda :)
here's mine .....

This is the first outing for this gorgeous Butterfly Tilda (shame on me!) and I've coloured her with copics, the DP is from Nitwits - Thimbles, the punches are both Martha Stewart and have embellished them with pearls.  The sentiment is one of mine from a set of six digital downloads - Line Wording - General - which you can download at my website CRAFTS 4 YOU
Don't forget to check out the DT inspiration .... stunning as usual!!

Oh and before I go ... I took my "Shop" on the road again yesterday to a Scrapbook Crop in Benfleet ... I had a fabulous day and meet some great ladies ... it's brilliant to see what everyone is working on - such talent!! ... As usual I was with my sidekick Wendy LOL - thanks Woo as always I couldn't have done it without you :) Mwah xxxxx
Here's a couple of pics ...

Have a great day whatever you are up to :)
