Back at last!

Conjunctivitis gone, cold still hanging on!! Thank you Kay and Nicola for your get well wishes :-)Still not feeling much like doing anything much, my card making mojo has really gone on it's hols, because I keep picking bits up, images to colour etc and nothing I just put them back. I have made myself make a couple of cards (not that I needed to as I have quite a stash in my box) for upcoming family birthdays, but they were a real effort!
Also noticed that my blog tunes are playing up, hope you like them I've added quite a few unfortunately my end they are stopping after about 10secs?
So here goes this first card is using Nicola's sketch over at My Paperworld, and you've guessed it it's for my Uncle! This is also my entry into Tracy over at Dies to Die For (http://cuteycrafts.blogspot.com/) blog candy challenge, ooo.... and boy is the prize delicious....... it's to help celebrate the merge of Dies to Die for and First Class Crafts, the challenge is to make a 'male card'

and this one is for sis-in-law. It also qualifies for a couple of challenges and a blog candy entry, over at Cute Card Thursdays the challenge is to use 'gems and jewels', at Time to Craft it's 'ribbons' and Gina (who's blog candy link is it a previous post CardKabin) would like a card made using a stamped image, ribbon, pretty paper and flowers


Other news, Hollie is doing a lot better at Nursery, it's a bit of a struggle to get her motivated in the morning (like me!) but hardly any tears or noise, she's putting her bag and bits where they go, finding her name tag for the register and although she is still going off (freely) with an assistant not a little friend I think she is doing pretty well, thank goodness!

The extension is progressing slowly, pity Matthew can't have a couple of days off to get 'stuck in' but he needs to earn so we can spend Lol...!! and with our few days away coming up in the not so distant future, we're going to need a fair few pennies because places like Woburn and Gullivers are not cheap to visit!

Love the card. Not a usual request for A4 cards and envelopes. I have just made 2 A5 and found them quite hard to 'fill up'. Will certainly look into it though. Good Luck.
