Sooner than you think .....................

Even though I don't blog as often I as should, I do still colour and create, it just takes a while to all come together!!! Any how, this is what I have been doing lately, playing with a Hougie board to demonstrate at the Kintbury show yesterday. I must admit I was quite pleased with my creations, the baby gift box set is adorable. Pop across to Kerry's blog for the instructions, I adapted it a bit but it still worked.

The Easter Egg box, I am going to enter into the following challenges:

Forever Friends Easter Stamp Set

Copics Sketch and Ciao Markers

Nellie die

Martha Stewart punch

yellow card, ribbon and acetate from Stash

I apologise for the quality of these photos as I had to use my phone as the batteries have run out on the camera!! Hope you like them.

Back again!

Sorry folks, life is so hectic at the mo and as I got told off yesterday for not blogging, I thought I had better do some! My weekend away seemed months ago now and it was a fab weekend, I met some amazing talented ladies and we had such a laugh together, so I would just like to say thank you to them all for being such fun and making the weekend so enjoyable. And not forgetting Wendy from Stamps and Memories and Karen Watson for organising the whole weekend and for whom we are truly grateful!! Thank you both ....... we are now all looking forward to the next one in October, if any one is interested pop across to Stamps and Memories for the details!

Now for my card, this was a very quick card I made yesterday for my Uncles 65th birthday, it was one of the very first images I coloured with my Copics so it has been coloured for at least a year or more! I am going to enter it into the High Hopes Stamps which is for the boys.
