Can't ask for better than that, now can you.

Hi everyone

Good morning everyone, I just thought I would write you all a little note to thank everyone for keeping coming to visit my blog.  I couldn't thank everyone enough for their support over the past few weeks, especially my followers who have been there for me for a long time and my newest followers.  

Thank you so much for all your visits, I know that I haven't been about for quite a while now and for that I am extremely sorry.  
Unfortunately, I haven't been feeling too well and my crafting 'mojo' has totally left me at the moment.  This is due to the things that are happening in my life at the moment and I can't concentrate or do anything 'crafty'.  I know that I will eventually get back to crafting, but at the moment things are sitting on the back burner.

So I genuinely thank every single one of you for supporting me and still coming to visit me.  I will post the odd thing, it may be from other sites like free crafting sites etc, just so that you know that I haven't completely left you all.

The giveaway will still be going ahead, and this is really important to me, especially at a time when I haven't been about.  I just really want to thank everyone for all that you do to support me and my little giveaway is my way to thank you.

Christmas cards

Hi everyone, it is only me again.  I just thought I would post a few Christmas cards that I have actually made over the past few weeks.  These are definately not the best cards that I have ever made and it shows how my 'mojo' has gone and left me.  I thought I would post them anyway, so that I can always look back and see how the cards worked out even after everything had left me. lol
These are definately NOT my best works of art, but I still had to show them.  Hopefully, the old 'mojo' will return sooner rather than later.

So here we go:

As I have said, these are definately not my best, but this is the last lot of cards that I am going to be making this year.  Sorry but the layout of the cards did not work out the way that I wanted them to, I think everything is going 'wonky' for me. lolI am going to have a much needed rest from making cards and I have a few tests that have to be carried out by the GP, so until all results are back and I know that I am not losing the plot, I will leave trying to make cards for the time being.  Please don't leave me, but keep coming back - you never know when I will post something different.
I hope that you are all managing to get your Christmas cards completed for this year and are looking forward to all that you have planned for this Christmas.
All my love to everyone

I'm a winner

Surprise post this morning from Practical Publishing. I won 4 packets of blank shaped cards, so I hope that this will help 'kick-start' my missing mojo.  It has still not returned and has been away for quite a while now.
No real excuse, but I haven't been feeling too well of late, although I have put on my usual 'mask' to everyone, saying that I am fine.  I am hoping for usual service to return as soon as I am able to.

I am still trying to make cards, although what I used to produce is not coming through in the cards, so the majority of them have only been fit for the bin.
I keep hoping that I will get a surprise and one day, I will just pick up and start making my cards again, maybe soon, or who knows I may produce one today with one of my new cards that I received through the post.

I have taken a couple of pics of the cards that I have won.  So fingers crossed that I will get my 'mojo' back - sooner rather than later.  It just had to be at Christmas that I have lost everything.

Please don't leave me, but keep coming back and visiting as you never know when there will be a card from me.

I had kept looking at these cards and was always going to buy them, but never quite got round to it, so at least I don't need to buy them now.  
I just need to try and make some cards from them.

Bit by the Bug Tuesday - Scarecrow

It is time for another Bit By the Bug Tuesday. The day where I introduce you all to the newest freebies over at Creative Bug on the Loose. This week we have,

the Scarecrow

Here is my card ...........

I coloured in the Scarecrow with my watercolour pencils and used Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls on the stalks of the corn.  I edged the card with Red Pepper ink and put 4 dotty brads at each corner.   
I used the sentiment from TLC Creations and the Just For You was done on my laptop.

So, what are you waiting for? 
To take advantage of this great image, head on over to 
Creative Bug on the Loose and follow the instructions on how to bring this 
Scarecrow home with you. 

While you are over there, don't forget to check out all the great digis Naomi has available in the store for purchase and don't forget to leave her a little love too.

I've caught the Bug, have you?
