I tried to make some cards last night but tiredness got the best of me, fast forward a good eight hours sleep and I managed to get these done this morning...

June Release Countdown Teasers Day 3

I'm feeling blue today, Owen is having problems with another boy at school, which for a mother, is just heartbreaking.  He is kind, gentle and respectful, albeit overly sensitive (like his mother!) and the thought of him being unhappy is simply unbearable :(

Enough of my woes, here are my cards for today...

I hope you enjoy your day, I will be sitting here anxiously, waiting to pick up my baby boy and hoping that he will have no new incidences to report!

June Release Countdown Teasers Day 1

I need to apologise again for the lack of activity here on the blog and on all our other social media outlets, I'm a terrible host!  I can only reiterate that Clearly Besotted is an extension of my hobby and not a fully fledged business.  My full time job is being a mother and I am ashamed to admit that I neglected this role when first getting Clearly Besotted up and running.  I made the decision to cut back on the non-essential elements of Clearly Besotted after a very severe ultimatum from my husband several months ago, blogging and social media was unfortunately part of the cull!  I love that Clearly Besotted is very small and manageable, which makes me appreciate my few valuable customers all the more!  In light of this, I hope you can forgive me for being an absent blogger, thank you :)

Back to business, there are eight new stamp sets, all with coordinating die collections on the way this month, and here's a little peek...
