Last lot for today

These cards were made using 123 punches which I got from a friend on the Imag-e-nation forum. You buy the sheets and also get the puches which punch the shapes out and you just then build the picture up as in decoupage. I like the colours of these and they have just been mounted onto square cards with a bit of ribbon and gems added.

and there is more.... that is.

The following cards were made from a kit that I bought from ESK. Quick easy cards but great for male cards.

This card was also made from a kit. Can't remember where I got it but think it may have been in a craft shop on the Isle of Wight! It's a kit from the Glitter Girls and I think it was for a bookatrix card but I have made the decopuage fairy and mounted it onto a black card blank. The pink glitter card is coated so that the glitter doesn't escape... I like the card but I messed up the cutting out at her ankles..

Well here are the cards I made..

Today has been a bit of a starnge day. Hubby was on lates today so was here this morning which put me right out. Keep thinking today os Saturday and forgetting it's actually Thursday!!

Have been putting some more stuff on my website. I'm getting there slowly.

Well here are the cards that I have recently made as promised. Sorry if you get bored, there are a few. Hopefully when I make others I will post them as and when.

This card was made for my nephew. The car is from a sheet from La Pashe. It was then matted and layered on card from my stash. I stamped the greeting onto a nestie and added some card candy.

The following cards are all forever friends. I have been on a bit of a spending spree recently with different forever friends. These were pre made toppers. The cards used are all pre embossed and also come from Forever Friends. Have used different papers and the mats have been cut with nesties and Nelli Snellen nesties.

Thanks for reading.

My oh my.....

..... what a long time it has since I last blogged. Not very good am I at this blogging lark..well I am going to try and be a bit better now that I have tome on my hands... now what's happened since I last blogged..

Well the first thing is that I am no longer working, I left my job on 10th December 2009 after 17 years there. I finally got my redundancy that I had been after for 4 years. I have no intention of going back to work at the moment as I have far too much going on.

I am doing a home course on Sage Bookkeeping and payroll. I have just taken my first exam and I failed!!!! 76% where you need 85% to get a pass. Never mind.. will have to do a bit more revision and retake it.

Healthwise I am ok apart from my nose. I have terrible pain with it. I am under the consultant at the hospital and like years ago when I had high blood pressure ( I am on tablets for that), they can't seem to find a cause for the pain. They say my septum is wonky (outcome of having my nose broken by a friendly???? neighbour when I was 17 but that's another story) so I can go in and have that straightened (not too sure on that one though) and also I am alergic to housemites and grass.... have spray to take at the moment and further appointment in June. Watch this space.

I am at the moment re doing my website selling craft items. My 'business' is called Ubeautycrafts and I am hoping to become a millionaire in a year!!! Lol seriously I'm hoping I can make a go of it along with my shop. I'll keep you all updated when I have made the first million.....

Well I have been making some cards recently.. nice and easy ones.. I will put them on my blog later when I have a bit more time.

I go away next week to Florida which I am really looking forward to.. I need the sun!!! I will also be getting some craft items of course. It's hubby's birthday whilst we are away also.

Right that's it at the moment...I am going to try & update this more regularly.. I will also pot the cards I have made on here too.
