I hope you had a happy Easter.

I was back at work today, in fact I don't know where Easter has gone.  We had a lovely day yesterday with the family, but as soon as they had gone, I had to start getting things ready for work.

I have managed to do a card at last.  The image is a Hanglars one, and the papers are from a Tickled Pink paper pad called Fine and Dandy.  Card and Gems are from my stash.

Isn't she lovely

I just had to buy Grace from Funky Kits.  I have coloured her with Promarkers, used Sweet Owl papers ( a delicious Paper Pad in pinks and browns), added brown card stock and 2 Prima roses.

I fell in love

with this adorable little dragon from Dragon Lair Designs.  He is called Rupert says Hello and is a digi bookmark. He reminds me of my favourite song when I was a little girl - Puff the Magic Dragon - I used to drive my parents crazy singing it over and over again.  I coloured him with Promarkers and used Ice Stickles for the glitter.

A Beautiful Sunday

morning...  I always feel better when the weather is good.  I've been up early this morning so I can take full advantage of it.  Lots of planting and repotting to do and I want to spend the rest of the day crafting.  So as they say on Blue Peter, here is one I made earlier.

I have used two digi stamp's - Easter Egg Briley and Meljens Designs Happy Easter Sentiments coloured with Promarkers. The papers, ribbon and gems are from my stash and I made flowers using punches and gems.

Back to work..

.. it seems like I didn't have the weekend off.  I'd love to be able to just craft - I have loads of ideas I want to play with but no time to do them.  Ah well. we can all dream

Here is another card I've just put the finishing touches on - I will have to find a better way to photograph them as it does look better in "real life".

I used an old stamp that I don't even know the name of and Sweet owl paper, the gems and card stock are all from my stash.

Where has the weekend gone...

......its Sunday evening already and I am getting ready for work tomorrow. It has been a good one though. Christine came round with my Mothers Day card and pressy and some news that I can't reveal yet. I've had a lovely crafty day today.  I have almost done 8 cards, I still need to put sentiments on them, but I am very pleased with them.

Here is one that I did finish using a free digi and paper from my stash.

Over a week......

.........since I was last on here.  I have had such a busy week.  Last weekend Kev and I went to Budapest with our friends, 16 of us in total, and had a fantastic time.  Bupapest is a beautiful city.  The food and drink prices were so cheap, and the company was fantastic - which is a great recipe for a great time. I'll upload some photo's later.  We got back home at midnight on Sunday and I started my new job at 8:45 Monday.  Not a lot to report there yet as we are in classroom training for 4 weeks.
I decided today was going to be a "me day", and I was going to spend all day crafting but life took over. I got up late and had an appointment at 2:30 with my councillor, then I had to food shop.  Now I can chill.

I have only managed one card up to now with my favourite CosmoBella stamp and MME Stella and Rose Mabel papers, flowers and ribbons from my stash...
