12 tags of 2015 (my version - Feb 2015)


Thank you for visiting! A big warm welcome to my lovely new blog buddies! Thank you for joining me on my crafty journey... I do hope you will enjoy the ride :) 

I must apologise for the recent unusual lengthy absence. I had a bad chest infection for two weeks whist going to work infecting all my work colleagues and at home my little girls. I somehow managed to recover... a bit... and then my dear other half got sick making our little recovering sickly babies properly sick again... it's impossible to craft with a little one stuck to your leg. I woke up with a sore throat again this morning and that was it! Enough! We just keep giving it to each other. I called the doctor, got my little ones seen and some antibiotics given to them, stocked up on vitamins myself. I'm on a mission to tackle this once for all! I pray for a bit of sunshine to help me along as I got soaked again on the way from work. Why do I not forget my umbrella on the dry days?! 

You might wonder what I have been up to during my 'quiet' time.. well, any free time I had I tried to craft. I made a few projects for the April issue of the Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine which I can't show you for now, sorry.  I also got to play with my gelli plate...

How are you doing? A big warm welcome to my lovely new blog buddies, thank you for joining me here. 

I can't believe it is already February! So much has happened of late that the time seems to be flying by! Did you get to read the January issue the Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine? If not, you probably haven't seen my winning makes... the Card Designer 2014... where am I going with this... well, the February issue is now out so I can now show you what I made for the competition and what I won. I know you are curious... I was :) Here are some photos of the makes...
