Summer holidays

Really going for it now spent at least the last hour taking photos and updating my blog, it seems I haven't lost my mojo and have really enjoyed spending time with my 12 year old daughter Katie card making which she has loved getting back into as well and she has also been revamping her blog if you haven't checked out Katie's blog have a look over at Welcome to Katzo Krazy!

So another commissioned card for the same lady she tends to give me her order in bulk so it's easier to work for this one reminds of getting ready to go travel on summer holidays which fits in with this weeks theme over at ABC challenge which is A for August.

If anybody can give me any tips on colouring a penny black cat I would appreciate it as I struggle with this the first one is too dark and second one is too light!

cards galore

Well its certainly been a while, my degree has been taking up a lot of my time, full time job and my new role which I am loving at to say the least when I have had a litte spare time then I have had lots of cake orders! which I am loving so card making has taken a back seat really. Just had my second operation so who knows might get my mojo juices going again here is few that I did before I went into hospital last week :)

I have never used these papers until now can't think why! you how sometimes you forget what stash you have so its been really nice to use some of this recently to especially old stamps and dies for my big shot.
A few cards for some darts players

and not forgetting two really big fans of the one and only Hannah Montana!!!! of course
