Makes updates.

I've been hiding away here....lost mojo...feeling a bit down in the dumps and more than a little stressed out with stuff. Not something I want to express publically. Have missed quite a few of Di's challenges..well being posted anyway. I have been doing them! So here are the ones I have not put on my blog. I have a break away soon and I can't wait....peace, tranquillity and nobody badgering me for everything and anything, this is just what I need...there's just a small matter of putting up a tent with the hubby! We have a new tent and had a practice run yesterday. We are still speaking, so there's hope yet!

Two little makes this weekend.

I have so many stamps and papers they are coming out of my ears! Thought it was about time that I had a play with them as I was seriously contemplating giving it up. I rarely get time to do it and am not always pleased with what I do, but thanks to some friends lovely comments and a bit of a pep talk I have decided that I should carry on with it, but somehow make time for it, order it and set myself little goals. There are so many tempting things to buy out there, but I/we don't need it! I'm listening to my inner self and I know I love colouring so ink pieces of art aren't me. I don't do CAS, not because I don't like it, I do, some people do magnificent work that's stunning, but it's not what I do best, in fact it's never done well by's not in my skill set!

 I have been beating myself up a little that other people have moved on in their crafting journey and I haven't, I'm where I am, I just love creating with copics and promarkers and that's it! I have inks, watercolours, h2os, pencils, distress inks, the works....but again I'm never pleased with what I my crossroads was met...stop and go back , turn left down the sewing/knitting aisle, right down the paint and ink aisle or straight on down the copics aisle. I'm opting for straight on,on the straight road, doing the colouring that I enjoy with the pretty embellishments, sometimes over done, that I enjoy and stay focussed on that road until my colouring is perfect and I no longer cut wonky edges!
I just hope I have made the right choice.

Load on the flowers.

Another fortnight passed by! This week over at Di's the theme is load on the flowers. I'm off out in a mo, so back later x
Oh no I have just noticed a peel off trying to escape!

I'm so behind on everything! It's Easter next weekend and I always send Easter cards, but I am struggling to get them done, so I reached for an old CD that I have " Me to You Spring chic". I had forgotten these pretties and it was great to get out old craft stuff that has been sitting in the cupboard waiting for an outing! I dug out my peel offs and paper flowers that have just been gathering dust, and my decoupage snips and pinflair glue. It was quite therapeutic to cut out the little tiny pieces. Better get cracking though....pardon the pun as it's my Dad's 70th on the 7th April and I haven't made a card yet!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all those mums out there. I hope you have all had  awonderful day. This is the card that I made for my own Mum. She loved it, thank goodness!

Lots of green.

Oh dear I'm late posting this one. Had a very busy day yesterday lots of running around like a headless chicken and forgot which week we were on! More running around today, but I have found my head!
My green card is St Patrick's Day inspired...these little dis digi mice are so cute! I have become obsessed with wee mice!

House mouse Easter.

I do love mice images....amazing really as I hate the real life critters! I saw this stamp and thought it would be perfect for my Easter makes...some not all! My image has been coloured with promarkers and prisma pencils and for me it's embellishment light! I resisted the temptation to put my flowers all over it as I didn't want to distract the eye from the oh so sweet image!
