I'm off to my friend Sue's for a local HMSA meet up-and I'm really looking forward to it.
I have made a few cards- 3 snowmen ones for a challenge at Bex's forum
and 1 for the Cut it up challenge at Carolyns
I also had some greta news I made the Design Team for Craftfairies new website (coming soon). I'm really looking forward to playing with some of the mini albums and bits she sells

Then my first couple of challenges for Bex's forum. Challenge 1- Fasten it
Challenge 6- Tags, I did 4 not 3 cos I have 4 little ones to buy for. I stole Bex's idea of putting their names on the front too
I still had a couple of challenges to do from Carolyns forum too, a Play on Words using an old Wildflower stamps set-I forgot I had theseand the All Cut up challenge, well you'll have to wait for that. How long does Anitas 3D gloss take to dry? I tried to speed one set up with a heat gun, not reccomended!!!
Off to do some more

I started making adoption cards when my sis adopted my gorgeous niece and then my nephew a year later-I have a very small online shop selling adoption cards now,good thing I like making kids designs, although I admit I struggle with girls cards-boys are always more fun!
I still have another 2 to make for my niece for other family members to send to her and 3 for my nephew, as well as another birthday card for him!I need some inspiration please -every Christmas I try to make a little something handcrafted for my sisters, Mum and best mate. I've saved these little kilner style jars to tart up-but what to fill them with? They are pretty small, about 4 inches high and 3 inches across-any ideas would be greatfully received!

Still in the Christmas theme I forgot I'd made my snowman last week and not taken his photoand finally the last of my jobs for today was to make a little paperbag album for the sunshine albums Ellen is collecting up
I've left it quite plain inside but put lots of disney and fishy stickers in the pockets
I was never a fan of these cute stamps-hubby talked me into buying him though and I'm converted, I've used him about 4 times since the weekend but with holly leaves instead of flowers. I still think £8.50 is alot for one stamp though, I guess I'm just used to buying cheap unmounted ones from the States now.
I now can't find my holly stamps so I'm in a huff!
This one is for the DCM midweek challenge-a card with a christmas tree. I love these little Dovecraft clear stamo sets and at £1.49 each pack you can't go wrong (well until you lose your favourite set with the holly leaves on)

I bought a load of new Christmas stamps at Art of Craft at the weekend so its been a greta challenge to have a play.
Wednesday, 10 October 2007
The challenge was to make a christmas card with the main theme as words. Its a little difficult to see but the tree is made up of the words to the carol "Oh Christmas tree"
The ghost is a Dingbat (picture font) downloaded free from the web-they are so handy you can find them in almost any subject
Despite feeling bleurgh its nice to be crafting again. I've not done much for the last month or so , been on drugs for our third (sadly unsuccessful) IVF attempt and they knock me for six, so I've been in bed by 8.30 every night
I'm taking 2 days holiday next week, one to clean the new kitchen and put stuff away, and one to craft.

I've actually made a card today
Not particularly inspired but its a start!
I've also started on a paper bag circle journal too-this I'm alot happier with
Off into Basingstoke to buy a pressie to go with the card(well you can;t go wrong with Game vouchers) but I feel a trip into Next to treat myself coming on. I have already treated myself to a handbag in Sainsburys this morning-but thats food shopping so it doesn't really count does it?
Then a Wii and chinese evening at friends-well we eat the chinese then wait till about 10.30, have one quick game and try to convince ourselves we've worked off all the calories!
Hoping to have lots more crafting time tomorrow. I want to sort through my (too small) fabric pile. I've been buying new books and got a couple of great craft ones so I want to start making some more Christmas softies
