Getting back into the swing of things








Firstly can I thank all that participated in yesterdays Colour Blog Hop. I am finding these monthly challenges really fun. I have seen all the participants entries and they are all fab. I am, however, having problems with adding comments. So if you haven't received a comment from me, I'm sorry and I'm hoping to sort the problem out if I can. I think it may have to do with changing my e-mail address on Goggle and it not recognising it properly.



Secondly, after my wonderful holiday ( some photos to follow later) I am feeling refreshed and in a more creative frame of mind. I have so many projects I want to do and complete, and I have so many ideas. I just need to get myself organised abit more and then allow myself more time to create. I love this hobby of mine so I should dedicate all I can to it.




I thought I would show you the card I made for a friend who is going to give it to her aunt for her birthday. The image is a Lili of the Valley stamp (I am starting a little collection of the LOTV stamps of late) which I can't remember the name of at the moment coloured in with Pro-Markers. I have used my Martha Stewart butterfly stamp that my brother R kindly got me for my recent birthday and the lettering is American Crafts thickers.




I hope you like. I'm trying to build up my card making confidence and this card is the first card I have been commissioned to make. Abit scary, but my friend loved it.




Anyway, hopefully I will be back later to show you some photos from my holiday once I have decided from the very many I have are the best ones to highlight for you.




Have a good day and I will speak to you very soon




Love Lesley xx

November round up- Scrapbooking retreats ahoy!!

November has been a strange yet good month. I have been made redundant from my job in local government (my last day at work was Friday 25th - official day of leaving is tomorrow 30th). And though I'm worried about finding another job, I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time (whilst looking for another job) and doing the many things on my list of things to do - like sort out my craft room, Christmas shopping, JYC 2011, a good clear out and doing a little cooking/baking.




Leading up to last Friday was a mix of emotions and though I am not sad to leave my place of work (it feels the right time to leave), I am sad not to be working with some people. But you can not stay in a place just for the people, and I've got to do the right thing for me for once.




However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
