Sorry I've been Awol but I've not had a chance what with Decorating and Kids etc.

Haven't managed to make any cards but will share this one that I posted onto the FB Sugar Nellie challenge. A piece of cake was the inspiration along with a pintrest board of cakes to help. the colours inspired this.

I will try and do more

Tired and no motivation.

Been a busy weekend.

Yesterday it was Football, a SU retirement party (which I spent far too much at!!) and the Supermarket.
Today it was Housework, Emma's riding lesson, a family party for Sam to do cake with the relatives then his God-father Alex popped in, with a toy Bazooka!!!
I've just finished his card which could have been better but hey, he's 6 and won't care. I still have to wrap his pressies.

This is LOTV Rugby Boy and a DoCraft Son stamp.
It's coloured in the colours of his rugby training strip for Cartha QPR.

I also did a card this morning for Alex's daughter Rachel AKA Chach.

The stamp and sentiment are Ladybug Crafts Ink. Ideal for a teenage girl, or not so teenage!

Don't know if I'll get much done this week as we're starting to strip Sam's room tomorrow and aim to get it decorated, floored and a new window in this week.
Plus a Birthday party tomorrow and work on Tuesday.:-(

Today I've been...

Doing laundry. It never ends!!
Also feeling sorry for myself. I have a blocked parotic gland. Sounds serious but I probably have a stone stuck in a saliva duct. this means a very tender swollen face and an unhappy me while I wait for it to pass.
Made an Anniversary card for my lovely friend Susan but forgot to take a pic. I'll get her to post it.
With feeling blugh I cheated a bit and used a LOTV Love and Romance cute square and it turned out great for such a simple easy card.

I also made this for last weeks Thank You challenge on the LOTV Challenge blog but forgot to post it. Doing well aren't I?!

Stamp is Milly Cuddle Time coloured with Promarkers.
Papers are My Minds Eye Lime Twist.

If you like LOTV pop over and see the Sneak Peeks on the LOTV Ideas to Inpire Blog of the new release out next week. there is a chance to win some stamps too.

My next project is the Sugar Nellie challenges hope to post them soon
Have you all been on the Sugar Nellie Blog Hop? the new releases are devine.
