Whoop Whoop - Exciting News

Just a quick post to tell you my exciting news!!  The lovely Glitter Geeks have given me a place on their design team - I am very excited about it and am going to do my best at giving some inspiration for the weekly challenges.  It also gives me an excuse to make more cards :D 

All I need to do now is really get my head around all the ins and outs of Blogger - might need some help with that one :D 

I am off to have a celebratory drink of Vino (any excuse and I will gladly take it).

So watch this space for my first Glitter Geeks DT creation xx

How time flies between blog posts :-/

I don't know why I get out of the habit of blogging - because to be honest I can chat endlessly about what I have done - shown by the amount of time I spend on Facebook and Twitter (well when my laptop lets me).  I suppose some of the reasons that I have not blogged is that I have not been doing that much crafting recently as I have not been feeling well enough - had a lot of coughs and sneezes which resulted in me hurting my ribs, strong painkillers and a sleepy me.  Glad to say I am finally on the mend and starting to get back into the crafting.

Been making a few cards for some sketch challenges and some for comissions too:

This final one was for my daughters birthday - she loves Monster High so I just had to get the Rock Princess Cricut cartridge to make this card ;) really great cartridge with lots on it so I am really glad that I HAD to buy it. LOL

My other crafty makes include these:

 The top picture is a ruffle scarf - I was inspired by a knitting programme on Create and Craft and luckily the same week was in Hobbycraft (as you do) and the yarn was on offer so I just had to have it :)

The middle picture is a present for my friend who recently had a baby.  After I posted a picture of it on Facebook, someone local to where I live asked me to make a Navy and Orange blanket to go with her new buggy :)

Well I won't bore you for any longer as I think I have put on enough photo's for the moment.  I will be back soon - honest!! :D

Thanks for taking the time to look/read x
