Welcome

I've finally got round to creating a blog!! It's only taken me forever!! You'll have to bear with me as it will take me a while to figure out how to do everything!!

Here again - that's twice in a week!!!!

Yep, I'm determined to stick to at least one New Year's Resolution, and updating my blog is the nmost entertaining one. Being healthy and tidy will have fallen by the wayside within a week, so if I can at least keep this one going, I'll feel better!!!

I've just found some pics of a card I made my nephew in September when he started big school, so that's tonight's offering. I also have a few more, but I won't go too crazy all at once!!

I can't remember the name of the stamp (a Jolly Nation one), but I used watercolour pencils to colour it. The cardstock is all from the papermill and I used nestabilities to cut out the centre panels. The side panels are embossed using the cuttlebug swiss dots folder.

I had a random set of school themed stickers that I've had for years which I used to decorate the inside.

Well, I'm v impressed with myself for actually putting something crafty on here. I have a few other things I've done over Christmas that are now out of season, but should keep me blogging for a few weeks.
I'll just finish with a photo of all the naughty shopping I've done in no protest at receiving no crafty Christmas gifts - although there was some lovely ribbon round a pair of pyjamas!!!


I have spent a shocking amount of money as v little of it was actually sale stuff, so there will be no crafty shopping for me in the forseeable future (~yeah right!!)

Happy New Year everyone. Here's to a crafty 2012 xx

New Year's Resolution

Here's a funny one - my new year's resolution is to blog regularly!!! Given my track record, that'll be a good one to keep. I'm going to make a big banner to hang by the computer to remind me!!! You may have to keep nagging!!!
Anyone else picked their resolutions yet? xx
