Gosh it's been a while!

Well I won't bore you all with the whole story of why I have not blogged in a couple of months!

Basically we had a car accident, someone drove into the back of my car whilst we were waiting at a juction, which has resulted in my new car (the one my MIL gave me!!) being written off, not only that but i am still suffering quite bad with my whiplash, im in pain in my whole and nexk, massive headaches all day everyday!!

Have physio starting soon so i really hope it helps.

I have been quite low since and trying to stay positive but it so hard just seems when anything goes good in life, it just gets taking away!

Well I have a few cards to show and will try and start blogging again, i do miss it!

It's Raining Men!

Well it's raining and all my cards today are for men!!

Don't enjoy making male cards as much as girly pink cards so it took ages to find the inspriartion for these, I actually feel drained now, but I like to make the effort for my Stepdad's b-day cuz he does alot for me and I know he appreciates my creations.

This is the Grandad card from Emily, I canot take all of the credit as Emily actually coloured the Simon & Lola image in with my watercolour pencils and then blended it, bless her shes so good, I did the rest of the card.

Last one is for my cousin, he loves fishing, hence the 'Fishafella' image and fishing BP from the masculine Dovecraft collection.

Thanks for looking, Im off to enjoy my indian takeaway now yum yum!

Horrible day but happy now!

Had a rubbish day today as I had a blood test straight after dropping Emily off at school and Im the biggest baby ever when it comes to needles, only had to have one tube taken as they are testing for arthritis as I have had alot of problems with pain and locking in my knees for ages now!

Anyway I was brave, then I went with Steve to get my haircut, 1st time in about 8 months, what with my anxiety panic attacks I find it hard to go out alot but really pushed myself today and finally had my counselling which if anyone has had will understand it can be very draining.

But when i eventually got home look what the postman had delivered....................................

This Gorgeous card and billy images From Natalie oh it really did put a huuuuuuge smile on my face, so BIG THANK YOU NATALIE YOU REALLY MADE MY DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will try to find the time to actually make some cards, I just need to stop spring cleaning!!!

Help pleeeeeeease!

3 posts in one day lol!

Emily has just got an invite to a pirate/princess party and had a fab idea to do a pirate card for the birthday boy but as I am all spent out for a while I thought maybe one of you lovely lovely ladies would mind sending me a stamped image with a pirate theme ie sugar nellie or one of those pink cat studio ones???
I feel so cheeky asking, but i would be so grateful!!
