New Crafters Companion Site

Hi Everyone,

Thought I'd just pop on to say hello to anyone who might stop by from the new CC site. It's certainly been worth the wait, hope you all like it.
Thank you for taking the time to visit me. I'm not too hot at the techie stuff but I am trying, very trying at times my hubby might say. I shall persevere and who knows one day it might be as good as Jacquies! Some hopes.
Well please pop by again and let me know what you think.
Happy crafting

Busy Week

Well I am just coming down to earth after a few hectic days. On Wednesday last I went up to Darlington ready for Crafters Companion's Craftaganza on Thursday & Friday. We had an absolutely brilliant time even better than last year. The following experts took workshops, Jayne Nestorenko, Wendie Rhodes, Michelle Marsden, Noreen from flowersoft, Kaye from Sakura and of course Sara from Crafters Companion. The workshops were brilliant and the evening entertainment was funpacked. Sara, her family and her team certainly know how to put on a good "do". Thanks Sara, can't wait for next year.
Got back from Darlington Friday night exhausted but managed to drag myself to Cliff Richard's concerts at the NIA in Birmingham on Saturday & Sunday nights. Had a great time as always, he puts his heart and soul into his concerts and everyone has a brilliant time. I was worn out just watching and I just don't know how he manages to keep up the performance night after night, singing and dancing like a young wipersnapper.
Well have chilled out the last couple of days but I must get back to finishing the Christmas cards!!!

Vintage Times CD's

Hi I'm back again, whats going on? I seem to be ahead of myself today, I've even managed to get all the ironing done and make a card for my brother in law. Just thought I'd upload some piccies of some card samples I did for Sara's new CD's Vintage Times. If you like Vintage you'll love these CD's.
The card with the teabag on the front has a detachable book mark. I got a new trimmer and it had a perforating blade so I just had to use it. How many paper trimmers does a girl need? Loads is my answer. Actually the trimmers and the ribbon are taking over my craft room.
Well must go and try to tidy the craft room after my earlier card making session. I only seem to get inspiration if I get in a mess.
Back soon (maybe!)

Cute Xmas

Well I've really got to get a wriggle on and make my Christmas cards. Actually I've made quite a lot but they've all been for Sara at CC. These two are a couple of sample cards I made, hope you like them. The bell shaped one wasn't too difficult once I'd got the bell shape right but not being too good (well hopeless if I'm honest) at drawing it took me a while.

Recently created cards

At lastI've got around to updating this blog. I've been very busy lately designing samples for Sara and I've also had a new laptop and printer which I'm still trying to get to grips with. Thought I'd post a few cards that I've made recently. The shaped cards are my own design made using the Ultimate by http://www.crafters . Hope you like them.
Hopefully I'll get back soon now that I'm getting to grips with the laptop.
