The few cards I've made recently have been uninspired rushed jobs-becuase I had to make them rather than for the joy of making them so to make this card was a real treat. The bits to make it have been gradually piled on my desk over the last few days-adding little bits as the idea grew-and as time allowed in between changing nappies!

The sketch is from 2sketches4u

We've been very busy lately reorganising things at home-the main change being...we've rehomed our house rabbits Bert & Ernie. They weren't getting the attention they deserved from us, and the pain from my hypermobility syndrome has been getting worse making it very difficult for me to get down on the floor to play with them and clean cages etc. They've gone to a very loving home so after weeks of feeling guilty I'm finally happy we've made the right decision.

It also means we've reclaimed 2 rooms in the house! I even found a secondhand dining table and 6 chairs at the carboot sale for £110 so we have a proper dining room at last now ernie has moved out.
Please note having a dining room table to eat on does not neccessarily mean I will be cooking !! Although I did get the Rachel Allen Bake! book for mother's day-the cookies are to die for-hubby thought they came from M&S-praise indeed!!!

Off to get some more bits done before Little Miss decides to wake up-to follow one posing baby shot!!!

Its been a while hasn't it? I have been making cards but yet more thank you ones and I thought I'd boed everyone to death with those by now. People keep sending Claudia the most gorgeous presents-look what arrived this morning!

Now I need a wedding to take her to to wear it!!!

I have made a non thank you card at last! This is for my friend Sue to wish her a speedy recovery from her knee op. The theme on DCM this week is patchwork-this is vaguely patchy-will have to try better on my next attempt I think!The stamp is a new one from Sugar Nellie-my sister bought me these for my birthday next week but I was allowed them early. I'm trying not to buy any craft stuff for myself this year-bar the essentials like envelopes and tape so mum has given me money for the papers for CJ's scrapbook-I've ordered the Imagniescence fairest of them all range-can't wait till they arrive

and finally its Crafts by carolyn's forum 7th birthday next weekend so we are having a birthday fairy-think secret santa without the christmas paper! Look at the lovely parcel I receieved yesterday-its almost too pretty to open!!

Thank for stopping by
