Phew! It has been all of 12 days since my last post and i have had a fab time - in Zakynthos! It was a heck of a bumpy ride moving house and shifting stuff into my craft room but now, all of that is like water under the bridge and it's time to move on and start crafting again!
Yesterday, and some of today (!), I managed to re-sort my craft space so I can actually find things and tonight I'm going in and I may be some time.........tee hee!
I also had a birthday during my time out and I received some lovely crafty stuff which I can't wait to try out.

Look out blogland - I'm back!

Well, good morning everyone!
I have been moving house - enough said - but now I'm raring to get back on my bike and empty the box which has my crafty mojo in!
I have sorely missed my crafty days and wish that I could have a few more before........I go on holiday on Friday!!! Yup! No time to do too much or become involved in any recent challenges as we fly to Zakynthos at 6am Friday so I'll just have to suck it up and wait another week!
I have had a couple of minutes here and there to have a mooch round the internet craft sites and I found something the other day which I am going to try when I come home.
Most crafty people know what ATCs are (Artist Trading Cards for those who don't) but I found a tutorial on Artist Trading Blocks and they look really fun! Apparently you can buy the block making die from Sizzix but I think I'll be creating my own- much cheaper! They all look fab and I have an idea of my own on what to make with them for the Papercrafter of the Year comp in November.
So, this moving house business? Hate it. I have no fingernails left, my skin's dry and my hair....well, let's just say it is being cut and pampered at the salon this very afternoon! Isn't it funny how your appearance comes second to sorting out cupboards and shelves? !!!
Not saying I look like a tramp or anything but I look like a tramp..!
He who works has had to take this week off work as well as next (obviously) because we have jobs to do here but getting under my feet is an understatement! World War 3 almost broke out yesterday just hanging a mirror! So, today, I'm getting out of the way., Hoping to meet my lovely sis in law for late brekkies / early lunch before the hair do. Such decadence.
SO, a fond farewell to all as I look around my half finished craftroom and look to where my mojo is hiding. It's gotta be around here somewhere :)

Brrrrr - Snowlady day!

Good morning all!
hope you're all feeling good and looking forward to the autumnal weather and what the season brings.
I love all the colours in the autumn - watching the trees change colours is amazing!
Mother Nature really is a hard worker!

Anyhow, todays post is about the card I've made for this weeks challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges which is being hosted by the lovely Anna.
We are being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. Follow the link for loads of digital goodies and lots more besides!
The image I've used is Bella da snowlady - she's lovely and sweet and available here :  Bella da Snowlady.
Our challenge is to use orange in the card somewhere - I think I've achieved it!!!
