Just hanging around....

Hello everyone

I thought I'd just post to let you know I'm still around. I'm still just hanging around surrounded by boxes. I am missing my crafting so much...I don't know what to do with my hands hahaha. I keep popping in to look at your blogs. I've been trying to post a card myself that I had been waiting to post after the recipient had been given it but I just can not get it to resize so it doesn't fill right across my blog. I've now given up so will post it to Facebook directly. Anyway as I said this was just a quick hello.....I'll keep you updated when I know something more...Lea x

Retirement Card 2

Hello all

Here we are again....thank you for your lovely comments yet again.  I've got another retirement card to show today. It's another I've been holding on to show you but the recipent has now got it. The die cuts are SB label 20. The sentiment was done on the PC and then cut out with the die...I then inked through it with purple ink. The background paper is from lotv which is covered with white card cut out with another SB die (my brain is addled and I can't remember what it is - I can't check coz it's packed lol! The flowers are from Tattered lace dies and the leaves are Sue Wilson. I finished with a butterfly, ribbon and coloured pearls. 

It could be a while till I blog again as all my stash is packed. I do have one more card to show but not until the recipient has it yet again. Until next time...Lea x

Retirement Card

Hiya everyone

I hope this finds you all well. I'm having a quiet day today just sitting watching the box. I've been packing little by little. Because of the fibro I can't just go berserk and pack it up quickly so I'm having to I'm shattered so it's a quiet one! I can't even craft as it's all in boxes....gutted! 

I must admit I love this card even though I do say so myself lol. I have been waiting to blog it for a few weeks now...I have now had the heads up the recipient has now got it! The papers and decoupage dress and hat are from Fabulous Fashion CD. I love this CD and just don't use it enough. The wording was PC generated. The gorgeous lilac lace was from The Range. I used die cut butterflies, gems and a suede covered brad/button to finish the card. I must admit I am extremely pleased with how this turned out as was the lady who commissioned it. I'm making myself a promise to use this CD more often when it resurfaces out of a box.  Until next time...Lea x

Hi everyone

I hope this finds you well. I know I've been AWOL awhile but I've been waiting for occasions to pass so I can blog cards I've made. When I've finished cards I've made already I will not have anything to blog until I unpack my craft stuff as at this moment it is boxed up ready to move. I'm quite excited because when I move I'm going to have a fab sized room for my craft room. Actually quite excited is a slight understatement :). 

My card is a 21st one for my sons girlfriend. Both backing cards have been embossed. The lace is some gorgeous stuff I got from The Range. I've used my fave Sue Wilson dies again- the wording was hand stamped. The 21 is from a Tonic die. I finished with some flowers, pearls and purple ribbon. 

That's me done for now. I'm hoping to catch up with your blogs later. Unfortunately I've not been able to do my normal rounds of late. Catch you again soon....Lea x
