Normal Service will be resumed.....

as soon as possible!  Have had dreadful problems with my internet connection and e-mail recently, so that's why I have been silent!  Fortunately it SEEMS to be working OK now, so I will be able to blog again and use my internet again - Hurray!  I've been so lost without it, it's been driving me mad.  I really, really LOVE the internet.

No time to post any pictures today though - I'm getting ready to go to the Artsycrafts weekend, so catching up on my domestic duties ( pardon??? Lol! You don't catch me saying THAT very often, ha ha) so that the three of us are all ready for Monday again.  Almost finished - yay.

Hope everybody has a great weekend, and looking forward to blogging properly soon.

...... how time flies!!!!  I did my class with my 14 ladies, had a great evening and we all enjoyed ourselves.  On the same evening I found out that I had the chance to have a table to sell handmade cards at a Christmas Fayre in November.  This was good news - or it would have been IF I had any cards already made to sell! - LOL!  So ALL my spare time on weekday evenings has been spent frantically making cards- I've not looked at any challenges or my blog.

Weekends have been busy as always - we've been to the Lakes, visited family in Leicester and had visitors too, so wouldn't dream of cardmaking (and besides I normally indulge in a drink or two or three or four at weekends so not a good idea to try and stick down anything in a straight fashion).

So I haven't got anything to show at the moment except some of my cards:

The first two use mostly Craftwork Cards products

The 6 above use Whiff of Joy stamps and K & Co and  SU papers.
These are copies of one of my PDCC entries
Prima stamp, Tim Holtz papers and rosette die, Wendy Vecchi stamp, SU stamp,
SU oval punch, Martha Stewart punch and Prima flower
These 4 use a lovely Barbara Grey stamp and 7 Gypsies flocked paper.

I'd better get cracking on some Mens' cards and some Baby cards I think.  When I've done some I'll try to pop some photos on here.

Thanks for looking X
