stamp something challenge

This challenge came at a really good time as needed to make a card for my auntie's birthday, so kinda killed 2 birds with one stone.

Blog candy

ok, yet another post today - must be making up for my previous neglect.
There is a fantastic chance to win some MAJOR blog candy here

Belli Challenge

This challenge was to use a stamp you'd never inked up before, not like me to have anything left as usually haveto ink em up the minute I've ripped the parcel open lol.

better late than never

These are for the "better late than never" backgrounds in the foreground challenge. http://www.papercraftplanet.com/group/betterlatethannever/forum/topics/january-challenge-background I always have high hopes when I start out but somehow they never turn out like I imagined - oh well practice makes perfect ( i hope lol)

head up my bum again

I can see this title making a regular appearance lol

Have been so slack again, not remembering to take photos of the stuff I've made - shall blame it on the fact of having issues with an online purchase. Making 5 calls a day to get a refund is not my idea of fun - especially when every time they put you on hold they cut you off AARRGGH. Anyway all sorted now so can stop spitting blood and swearing at the phone and try and get my head in gear and enter those challenges, remembering to take pics of the damn things before giving them away to everyone who turns up asking if I have a card for so-and-so.

On the plus side, Ebay are giving me a £20 voucher to offset a negative experience I had earlier ( I spend sooo much money on there it's really within their interests to keep me happy - lol) so will have a little broswe through the craft section.
I think my hobby is turning into buying card making stuff rather than card making now. My little green monster rears it's ugly head every time I hear of people having a dedicated craft room. I so want one - might have to sell one of the kids and nick their room.........

Hello Debra, wow a follower I feel all proper now and rendered almost speechless, which doesnt happen too often lol. It's really nice of you to join me and I hope i wont disappoint you too much hun

These are the cards I managed to beg back from family so I could put them on , the 2 snow scenes are from Mel's blog - check it out I love this girl and her blog is fantastic.

My 1st upload (yay) sorry its wrong way round - not got to grips with the technical stuff yet. Struggled with this challenge - not a good omen when it's your 1st one, but I'm feeling good as today has been a lot of 1sts - 1st blog, 1st challenge, 1st upload, so can go to bed feeling like I have acheived something.
I had the day from hell yesterday so promised myself I would do something different today, whilst staying away from any social contact at all - which was my downfall yesterday. So the plan was to visit some cardy type blogs and do one of their challenges. Nice and calming, just what I needed. Well, one thing led to another and here I am trying to set up a blog of my own. Mainly I'm afraid to store the images of the cards I make as up till now haven't bothered, and because I didn't know how else to leave a link to something for another blog. I am so new at this and probably wont visit very often when the novelty wears off, but a girl has to try.....

Any way if you have managed to find your way here by mistake, please leave me a comment and maybe we can share crafty challenges and ideas or just see where it takes us.
