I know I've been gone a little while, but I've just become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, so I've been focusing my energy on getting some samples made up and sorting out a separate blog to manage my new buiness. It's turning into a bit of a headache, so if anyone out there is familar with wordpress, please drop me a line and I'll be forever grateful to you.

It dawned on me a little while a go that it's actually Wednesday and I should take part in WOYWW. Its not something I've done before, but I have to say I love seeing everyone's crafty habbits.

I'm someone that likes to craft in front of the TV (stops me munching). There's no TV in my craft space which means my stash slowly migrates down the stairs making the whole house a mess until it gets too much or Ben starts to play with my stuff (he ruined a finished card last week - noooooo!!!)

As I have so much stuff, I find myself migrating from my little craft table onto the floor (I have a bad back, so I probably should invest in a TV to go upstairs) so here we have what I'm currently working on, on the floor.

And as you've never seen my crafty space, here's what it looks like. My desk is relatively tidy, the rest of the room is a complete mess. I decided to have a bit of a sort out last weekend and ebay some stuff to help fund someone to help me with designing my new blog. Storage always seems to be a problem, so I've started keeping things on the windowsill too. My cat is not too happy about that as he can't sit on it anymore. 

Right, better get back to that birthday card that seems to be troubling me at the moment.

See you soon.

It's Christmas!!!!!!

Yup, it's March and I've just made my first Christmas card of 2011. I do love Christmas although I never seem to find enough time to play with the many, many Christmas stamps I have. I have an embarrassing amount of virgin Christmas rubbah. But if I start in March, I do stand a chance of rectifying that don't I?!?

So the theme over at Kraftin Kimmie this week is Scoopy scallops. I was feeling a little scalloped challenge, so I went for my oval nesties and then found a stamp that would fit, thus the Christmas card was born. I've coloured Stocking Miles with my copics and Prismacolour pencils. I have to say it does look so much better when using too mediums. I should do it more often. I've co-ordinated with some DP from the Basic Grey Jovial stack (another virgin Christmas item) it's such a nice stack, I'm certainly going to be using it again soon. I've used some stickles to make the fur of the stocking to give it some texture and I've finished the card with some CWC Candi

So all that's left to be said it happy Friday! Apologies for the lack of blog hopping this week. I've been suffering from severe headaches for the last couple of months, so I've been trying to reduce time on the PC to see if that will help. I will no doubt get to take a look at what you've all been doing over the weekend.

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.

I nearly forgot to post this!

I've created a card with this week's Friday Sketchers sketch....

I've coloured Savvyshoppabella with my copics and all of the DP is Memory Box's Gossamer. Still my absolute favourite stack of papers (and I'm not a pink person!) sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

That's about it really. Short and sweet, just like me ;)

See you tomorrow with my Kraftin Kimmie card (if I get it finished in time...!)

I love this stamp!!!

Hi-di-ho peeps!

I'm in love with today's stamp. It's from Kraftin Kimmie and is called Tiny Miles and Masey. I've coloured with my copics and teamed it with some DP from DCWV Spring Glitter Stack and some Bazzil cardstock.

Nice and simple and I love it! I may just have to make up one for a little boy.

Right back to the day job now - booo
