Blooming Tired

Hello lovely peeps

Sorry I've been so quiet - I've been working 3 different jobs for the last 3 weeks so I have had very little time or energy for crafting.  But as of today I have just my new job so I will have my crafty time back again. Yay!

Today's card is using paper scraps from the Bird Song paper pad from First Edition. I used to store my papers in colour families but aside from it looking pretty it didn't really work for me as I struggled to find a co-ordinating paper when I was working on something.

Wire Bird

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

An Aall & Create card to share with you today. There's a challenge finishing soon over on Tracy Evan's Facebook page called 'Winged Friends', so I thought I'd have a bash at making something.

Writing with Dominoes

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

Just popping in to share the birthday card I made for my cousin, using the 'Domino' stamp set by Tracey Hey. I love all the cute little critters (though I'm not sure what the one I've coloured dark brown actually is, lol).

Icecream of course

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

I've made a card for the current As You Like It challenge 'Favourite Food & why' - which is, of course, icecream. I usually fancy something sweet after a meal and icecream is my go-to dessert. 

The best icecream I ever had was in Mousehole, it was rhubarb and ginger. I was so gutted they didn't do that flavour the next time I visited. Regular portions of coffee and/or salted caramel icecream soften the blow a little :D

Birthday Balloon

Hello lovely peeps

For today's card I've used the Animal Balloons digi stamp by Rachelle Anne Miller. To make a more CAS card I cropped the image to remove the bunny/mouse and other balloons.

Pig Tower

Hello lovely peeps

Just popping in with a card I made with the fabulous pig from the 'Down on the Farm' set by Stamping Bella.  I stamped him at the top of a piece of ultra smooth 200gsm paper then covered him with a post-it note mask to stamp the one underneath (... and repeat).

Happily Ever After

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are all well.

I was asked to make a card for a cinema engineer getting married and hit on the idea of doing a wedding scene on a cinema screen, complete with an audience watching.

Hello Old Chaps

Hello lovely peeps, long time no see :D

Sorry I haven't been around blogland for a while. Since I started a second job I've not found much time for crafting, let alone blogging. I hope you've all been keeping OK, I'll try to pop around and visit you all soon.
