6th February

I just cant believe where this year has gone so far. Trying to get myself motivated into making more cards, instead of buying more stash. Been trying to teach myself how to make paper roses saw a demo on C&C with Nancy.Will post some of my creations later when i find the batteries for the camera.
Have made a couple of simple Easter cards. Got a couple of birthdays coming up and also Mothers day but got that sorted thanks to my Tilda Stamps.

29th January

Bless my seventeen year old, an hour before he is due to go to school,"Mum can you make me a card my teachers wife has just given birth I think its a boy."

Thank God for my cuttlebug and free download papers.

Have been looking at the new Marianne creatables and the new nestabilities. Must start saving.

22nd January 2011

Back to work and really finding it hard to find time to make any cards. Having had time off then trying to get back to my usual sleep pattern of sleeping in the day has really screwed up my body clock. Still never mind think of the money and the lovely stamps I can buy. Talking of buying stamps have really got into Tilda and may have bought 1 or 3 Tilda stamps that was on sell via The Glitter Pot.

Been using my trusty cuttlebug. I do love these Tilda stamps though!!!!!

An unfinished card will get back to it at sometime.
