First time for everything...

Hello everyone! Hope your week is going well. I finally managed to find some time the other week to make two cards - both for my younger sister who is in the USA. My older sister is out there at the moment to visit so it forced me to get my act together and get crafty! 

I didn't know where to start as I hadn't made a card in so long but I did my usual trick and flicked through my papers to see what I was drawn too. I really liked the pink and orange together and thought the blue and green worked well too. 

My first 'auntie' card! As I hadn't made a card in months, I thought I did pretty well considering I made both in just under and hour and a half (this one I made whilst looking after my little baba too - he was sat in his bouncer watching me work then fell asleep - card making obviously isn't for him!)

Apologies for the rubbish picture, I didn't have time to take a decent one as my sister had to pack them so these are courtesy of my phone! I think I prefer the second one, I really do like those colours together - calm and peaceful....very unlike me at the moment! That hippo is too cute :)

 Those that know me love a bit of glitter, gotta get it in there somewhere! It is usually the lettering as I like it to grab people's attention.

What do you think?

Saturday, July 14, 2012 has been a while!

I stumbled across my blog after not visiting a while and couldn't believe how long ago my last post was! Lots has changed in my life...I now have a 3 month old (little boy) and I'm engaged! It has been a crazy year so far but an amazing time. Alexander was born on 3rd April 2012 (6 days late) but well worth the wait!

So...what have I missed? I would really like to start getting back into my crafting as I do miss it. I have a little haven in our house with all my craft bits and bobs - Alexanders nursery is now what used to be my craft room!

I can't remember if I have posted some of these cards but apologies if they are is more an inspiration post for me to try and get my mojo back!

Anyway, hope to post again soon with a card or scrapbook page!
