Quick hello

Oh how great it feels to be blogging and crafting again even if it only for a couple of hours.Great news though, house went up for sale Wednesday and we have had one viewer already, downside she came at night so no crafting for me boo!!! My house is clean and everthing is where it should be which looks kind of odd, doesn't look or feel like my house anymore, even my craft room is immaculate. I managed to make a card for the birthday club over at the rak club one of quite a few in March. I also need to make a card for the March rak swap, anyone interested in joining get in touch.

The image I used is one of my new Lili of the valley stamps which I must say are just so so adorable and they are so many I 'need'. I have to laugh though as my friend Susie said the other day I need images like a hole in the head. This was said after we had a wee craft night a few weeks back when I stamped a few images..akoy a lot!!! and Susie then won mOre stamps over at MAWTT. Images to me are like shoes and handbags to others, you can never have enough lol!

The DP's were given to me in a rak from my bud Dawn or 004 1/2 as I now like to call her. The satin finish is just gorgeous so I will be asking her where she got them. Flowers and buttons and ribbon are all from the sunshine capsule collection.I also have the red hot collection both of which I would highly recommend if you are after co-ordination and great value. I bought mine from cutting edge crafts, a fab website to say the least.

Oh almost forgot the wee ribbon addition I pinched from a DT member over at sketch saturday where funnily enough I got my sketch from. I used my x cut ribbon punch which I have to confess I bought months and months ago but never been out of packaging.

So here's my wee card for the sketch saturday challenge.

Off to bed now as it's rather late.

Please leave a wee comment if you can, even just to say hi

Missing you all Clare x
