The Last 18 Months

Hi, I have been away for what seems like forever! The last time I posted on here I had recently got married and then found out I was expecting our first baby. Life took over and up to now I have been unable to find time to post on here but now I am back!

I gave birth to our beautiful Son Samuel on 31/01/2010 and he is our little Ray of Sunshine!

I continue to craft when possible and will post some pictures of this and Sam when I get another spare few minutes. Although I'm not even sure if anyone will see this post!

I have been browsing the MSE craft boards again and you have all been very busy!

MSE challenge card

Seem to have been at work for what seemed like forever the last few days. Then I had today off and the internet went down so I could not upload this card, at least its working now tho.

This is my card for the MSE green card challenge. The image is double embossed (thanks to Mel for that idea), and I have used my crop-a-dile and stickles also. I love stickles as they are much less messy than glitter, and the crop-a-dile is just such a great tool. The stamped image I bought from ebay and coloured it with water-colour pencils.

One for the Weekend

Had a fab day today playing cricket and flying the kite with mum, dad, sis, brother-in-law and my hubby. The sun was gorgeous and we are all a little pink! Afterwards we all came back to ours and mum, sis and I did some crafting whilst my hubby cooked a scrummy roast dinner. This is the card I came up with today, almost good enough to eat!

Well today we went to hubby's parents for lunch, and mother in law requested us to make an apple pie. We followed this recipe http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2052/ultimate-apple-pie and I am pleased to report that it went down very well - delicious! Usually I would have let them keep some of the left-overs but as it was so nice we brought it back home with us!

Some recent creations

Here are some of the cards I have made recently

This is what happened when my husband Ross left me to paint the fence!

Yes...... I used my imagination to prevent myself becoming bored!

My First Post...

Welcome to my blog. On here I will talk about family life, work and display my latest crafty designs. I am a regular stalker of the cardmaking thread on MSE and have finally decided to come out of the closet!
