Sending Love

After a creative drought, I have been crafting up a storm this past week and I made this card at 2am this morning!

It's so cold here in the UK at the moment, makes me not want to leave the house and makes doing the school run on a Saturday more of a chore than's not fair, Saturday's should be a lie-in day!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, thanks a million for looking in on me, you're the best :D

Sending Love

After several weeks of studiously avoiding my craft room (I made my countdown teaser cards before Christmas), I popped in there yesterday and eased myself back into it by creating these simple cards...

Stamps - With All Your Heart & Tiny Type / Dies - With All Your Heart Die Collection, Flag It Die Collection & Small Frames Die Collection / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; VersaMark; VersaMagic Red Magic / Other - White Embossing Powder

Stamps - With All Your Heart, With All Your Heart IIHappy Birthday All / Dies - With All Your Heart Die Collection / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; & PTI Hybrid Ink

Dean and the children returned to work and school on Tuesday so this week has been a bit tedious and I'm glad it's almost over.  I will admit however, that it has been nice to have a clean and tidy house again, the three of them generated quite a lot of chaos and mess in the last few weeks!

Happy Friday and I hope you have a fabulous weekend :)
