A Little Friendship Card

Sorry really poor picture of this card, the light was going when I took it... Still need to work out where the best place is to take photo's of my cards!
This card was for a friend who fell over her mower at the begining of the week and just wanted to send her a little card wishing her a speedy recovery.
Branch and little birdie is We R Memory Keepers paper and the cardstock as the background is Co-Ordinations White Wash. Stamp: Stampin Up

Brother Or Sister?

Well I was hoping to have some crafting time this weekend but it didn't work out like that in the end. I've set myself a goal of trying to do at least one layout a week using a sketch online, I know that sounds like not much of a goal but at the moment there is so much stuff going on and so much stress that it's my way of having a bit of time out for me.

I did however manage to squeeze in a couple of hours to complete my goal. This layout is loosely inspired but the sketch on Lime Tart blog.

Papers: My Minds Eye, I have had hold of these papers since Ally Pally in April, I’ve them aside for when I got my scrapbooking mojo back as I just didn’t want to use them on anyone else!
Alphabet: Sizzix Boss-o Inks: Stampin’ Up Pixie Pink & Baja Breeze (Love these two colours together!)

Friendship Card

Just a quick post, here's a card I sent a friend this week who I felt deserved alittle cheering up, it was based on a card sketch but I can't remember which one LOL.
Papers are Basic Grey Urban Prairie, I've had this stack for a while but didn't want to use them but I am being good and trying to use papers that I have... it's hard!!! Bird stamp is again Basic Grey Grow A Garden and the punch is that Martha Stewart punch again! Greeting is a fab little set by Lizzie Annie Designs.

Too High Up

Well I was really busy yesterday in my craft room and I managed to find my scrapbooking mojo again after a few months off. I was inspired by the sketch from My Sketch World, here's my take on the sketch.

I fell in love with this paper when I saw it, now I have to admit that am not normally a yellow sort of person, but I have to say that I am slightly warming it it and I think it looks fab with the pink!! I used my new Martha Stewart border punch to decorate the pink patterned paper, I have loved this punch for a while now!

Papers are Wild Raspberry by K& Co, flowers are cut using the Hello Kitty Dasies Sizzix die.. I love this die and what makes it so much better is that the Hello Kitty dies are pink... they look sooo pretty sitting on the shelf... yes I know I am sad!! The Alphabet is Curvey by Sizzix and I've used Stampin Up Pink Passion ink around some of the edges and for the journalling!

So pleased to be scrapbooking again!!

My Mojo's Back!

Sorry I haven't been about for a while I've had a pretty stressful few months .... my mum was g rushed into hospital and at the moment we are still waiting on results to see if she needs an operation, so all pretty stressful still.

Then my home PC just stopped working, I've been told by my new IT expert LOL that my hard drive has gone... which is really stressful as I had nothing backed up so I think I have lost everything... I am more upset about the possibility that I have lost all my photos and pictures of my cards I have made for the past 5 years :(

Anyway I haven't felt up to doing much card making as I have spent a lot of my 'spare time' rushing around for others as useal putting others first before myself and I am worn out.

The good news is that I've managed to aquire a lap top which is a start in the right directon I have been lost without a computer at home!

I've had a quiet crafty day today which is the first time I have sat down to make anything in a long while, I've even managed to start my scrapbook off again.... So hopefully my mojo is back for good!!!
