You did it




My niece Emma has just got a job - admittedly only temporary - its so difficult for young people these days - she has been to university but there are so few jobs about. Anyway she is also becoming a manic card maker as well - raids my stash when she comes here - i have told her it will be an expensive hobby as there is something else you need!!!
This card - as always-looks better in real life - it is decoupaged and a bit glittery that does not show on the photo.
Fab Mo image - can always find an image thats suitable there.
This card will be entered in the following challenge
mosdigitalchallenge - mo's favourite colour[yellow]

Little Dragon Boy

Well i have not quite got round to having a mass tidy up - I seem to work well within my chaos, I have just been tatting today - finding paper that I had forgotten about. I was going to sort out my christmas craft stuff and then thought better of it - I need a full day off to go through that box. Here's a card I made earlier - love this cute little boy.

It's been a long time

x
...since I last posted - my heart wasn't truly into anything after John died - but slowly I am getting back to a 'new' normal. I miss him every single day.
I am lucky to have met so many lovely people through crafting and go to two different classes/get togethers. This is a card I made at Sarahs using a new die - did not think much of it at first but now I think its fab - great for male cards.
So I am entering it into a challenge after many weeks away from blogging and challenging and hope that my oomph is coming back

I will enter it in to the following challenges
sketchsaturday - sketch
inkspirationalchallenge - anything goes

Its nice to be back xxxx

made with so much love and sadness

My darling John - the love of my life- died at work on 5th June. It was one of those 1 in a million freak chances - his artery sealed as the heart needed blood.  I went to the hospital thinking I would find him sitting up in a bed and moaning about having a day off work. I was taken to a room where I was told that he had died. My world collapsed in that instant.
John and I had our own song - Please don't go by KC and the Sunshine Band. It was played at the funeral but I felt that I had to say why it meant so much and I found the strength from somewhere to stand at the front of an unbelievably packed church and say why they words meant so much to us.
I have made this picture to hang in the room by a photo of my wonderful John - the words are from our song.

posted with love

Well 2 posts in one day - I must be feeling better!!!I am having a look through my older stamps and stash remembering old favourites. I have so many ideas and cards in my head but just need to get them onto paper - oh the luxury of one day being a kept woman or at least a big lottery win to have spare time - though I shouldn't grumble as I still have a few sick days left but hopefully when i go back to the doctors I will be able to return to work - in a sad way I do miss it. Anyway here is my tilda card - i forget how lovely they are
