Keeping it simple

Gone for a very simple style here but I think the yellow and navy give it a lovely bright and bold look. Can't believe I haven't made it out to my craft haven yet!! To much work work. To much house work. How depressing! Need something to put a little sparkle in my step. Trying to come up with a few new idea's here. Think I'm missing IACW although I seemed to spend more time organising behind the scene and need something to hold my attention that is not work/domestic related! Anyway, hope your steps are sparkling! catch you soon xx

Very cherry

Hi there! Got another card for you today! Got a very cute bow making template from Papercraft Inspirations. So the bows have been used a lot recently. Have just finished the "forcing children to do homework" session. Now continuing with the making dinner session. Then the DIY and tidying and then cinema for the kids! A busy one- with me still gazing yearningly at the craft room door. If anything, just to tidy up in there!! Bombsite! The kids definitely have my messy genes lol! So I'm going to make my cottage pie- hope you drop by soon. xx

Bon voyage

A double creative helping today for my friend/colleague. Susie is going to do charity work for a few months and I made these to say so long. She has a pug and French bull dog, so the cakes went down well. Have a day off tomorrow so vow to get in that craft room!

Sniff sniff sniff

That's all I do at the moment! Cough and cold lingering as normal. But I made this card and have a few more lined up. The paper is from a Peter and Jane book- very vintage!! So bear with me- I'll be back to normal soon xx

Back on track

Today I felt much better so managed to go out. Bit tiring but back to work tomorrow for sure. Got a couple of new cards done but am on a mission to scrap. Have also got a pile of amazing goodies as a belated birthday gift- so will need to play with those. So having got the hols out the way, and Andrew's 11plus exam and a week of feeling blah... I'm going to get on with some stuff. On the home front, poor Dave now is a germ fest- but different to mine. So still germs lurking. The plus this week was Andrew was voted house captain at school. Three cheers for him!! In the meantime- a card from a couple of weeks ago. Looks quite cute in person !

As I was saying!

It's been busy here! I've fitted in a couple of cards but have so many pics to scrap!

The bedroom has almost been transformed. Painting-check. Wallpaper-check. Blinds-check. Minecraft d├ęcor- erm.......well....not really....but it looks lovely. That will follow. We popped to the cinema on Saturday to see Lucy. A strange film. It started well but got a bit silly towards the end- so mixed feeling on that. Almost school time. I always have mixed feelings. It's good to get back to routine but I love having Dave at home for the summer. He is rather lovely and I don't get enough time with him during term as he is always a busy bee. It's also great not having to nag the children to get dressed, get ready etc. Will just have to countdown to half term. TFL xx
