Pretty cards and stuff!

Good morning all!
So, I know I've been away for a few weeks (mea culpa...:( ) but I really do have a fab excuse - NOT!
Seriously tho, I have been crafting and making a few bits and bobs but my mind has been kind of elsewhere because, currently, the builders are here making a whopping great building site out of what used to be a kitchen/dining/utility area!!!
Here are a couple of pics for you to see the kind of mess our downstairs is!

 So we don't have a kitchen and we won't have until the building work's finished and a new kitchen is chosen and delivered - scary times, but at least we'll have somewhere to cook, wash clothes etc etc! The launderette, and the microwave are busy at the mo!

So, onto the cutesy stuff.

I've made a couple of birthday cards and I've been published in Papercraft Inspirations every month for the last 6 as part of the Reader Design Team but I keep forgetting to post them here!

This is a card I made for my bro-in-law as it was his birthday at the beginning of Jan.
I used the fabulous Sheena stamps which came with my subscription of Creative Stamping magazine.

My next card was for my pal in Zante. Her birthday is tomorrow but I had to post it ages ago as the post on the Greek islands is notoriously slow!

I saw something very similar on Pinterest and decided to CASE it (which means copy and share everything) but, I can't find the original post now so....I'm sorry :( but I would have given the credit if I could. I obviously tweaked it (as you do!).

Here's my latest card made for the RDT of PIN mag (as mentioned earlier).
I had a set of printable images to work with and I came up with a stepper card so I could make it into a little dimensional garden.

As far as the creativity goes, that's all for now folks!
I'm trying to arrange my cutting dies into some kind of order and I now wish I hadn't started :(
I can't believe how many I actually have and I don't think I use over half of them!

I'll keep you posted on the kitchen thing as I'm off out now for some lunch with a friend of mine who is also going through a house move so I can imagine we'll have quite a stressed conversation today!
