Bugs (again!)

Nothing new to show challenge-wise but here is one of the Christmas cards I have made using a Creative Expressions medallion stamp and Art Institute Glitter a la Jayne Nestroyenko. I am still slaving away at the Christmas cards, in between "doing" Hallowe'en with a very over-excited and tired young man AND both of us being full of another stinking cold. It's just one thing after another at the moment. There's no time for anything it seems. On a positive note though I have finished my Christmas shopping - just need to wrap it all now!

The builders are getting on really well and actually have the scratch coat on over all the crack (which were shockingly abundant once they banged all the loose stone off the top!). Hopefully we can look forward to a snug and dry winter.

This is Forever Friends stamp has been coloured with Promarkers and Stickles. Background paper is from Dovecraft Birthday pack, flowers are Scrapfairies and Prima. Sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly and ribbon from Hobbycraft with Swarovski crystals. Thanks for looking.

An Apology

Did you ever see such a cheeky little devil? Hard to believe this was taken 2 weeks ago as we were waiting to go to the airport to come home. I haven't anything "crafty" to share.

I know I have been the most crap blogging friend ever recently and I am so sorry. I have loads going on (like floods and school holidays!) and at the moment I am trying to make all my Christmas cards in the evenings then make jewellery and loads of other bits for a craft fair on 6th December that I have taken a table for. I will need to work most nights now for about a month I reckon to have enough to sell. Basically I am trying to use up some old stash to sell and raise money to buy new stash!

I will of course continue to do my DT work that I love so much but probably won't have chance to join in any other challenges for a little while. I will be back properly very soon I hope.

I have had a phone call from my builder saying we will have to see what the weather is doing tomorrow as it's not a good forecast. We are hopefully getting dry days on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday so they could get a good run at the job and get it done in one go. Here's hoping!
