So here we are! I am back! It is spring (well nearly) so here are a springtime cards that I recently made for birthdays. Finally getting some use out of my H2Os but as ever I am too fussy and spend too much time actually making my stamped images so a card like this can take me a couple of hours!!!!

Had a panic yesterday when I realised it is my nephew's birthday today! Thank goodness for the robo so that I could make this for him, and thank goodness for the talent on UK Scrappers that like to share their templates cause I can do designs myself!

This is a superquick card I made for my Dad's birthday back in December - he was really pleased with it and could not believe it was made rather than shop bought. Also shows how you can use the bits from those concept card kits and make something of them!

A robo moment again - this time for my brother in December who has a VW Beetle (old style!) He was thrilled with this card and I really don't mind spending the time on cards for him as he really appreciates the effort that is put into them. Cannot claim it as all my own work though as the template came from UK Scrappers, although I did alter the windscreen a bit to make it correct for him.

This one was done for my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary again in December (busy month in this family!). My Dad has now given my 10 years notice for me to get one done for him for their Golden cause he had such problems getting a Ruby Wedding card with Wife on it. As you can see another robo creation - courtesy of UK Scrappers (apologies I really must note people's names when I save these templates). What you cannot really see on this picture is the beautiful patterned pearlescent vellum behind the lattice work.

Well I am going to leave it there and save the scrapbooking LOs for another time but yes I AM crafting again and even better creating LOs cause as some of you might know cards are only done to save me buying them. So until next time!

Once again.....

here I am apologising for not being a good blogger! Guess part of it comes down to the lack of crafting BUT the good news is that I have been crafting once again! DD is back at school tomorrow so hopefully I will have the time to come back on here and share with you some of the work that I have been doing. Most of it was kick started by the UK Scrappers cybercrop a couple of weeks back together with some nice new Expedit units from Ikea which have transformed my room and also meant that DH decorated it for me too! Piccies of that to follow when Ikea have my pink baskets in.
