Sorry not been around much, do have plenty of cards on the go but going at it gradually due to my eye problems. Dont want to over do it and make them really sore again. Hubbie has asked me if I would make a choice of Valentines Day cards for him to choose from which I dont mind, would rather make them then have him spend money on shop ones especially as he treats me to crafting bits and bobs every now and again.
Here is the first two of a batch of six, I have used brown card stock, pink card stock, gem stones, flowers, lace, sentiments to be added later, 2 lovely Simply Sassy images and some My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Madison Avenue patterned papers.
Well thats it for today and hopefully soon I will have some more to show you but until then do take care and happy crafting, lol

Well today I have this card to show you, I totally adore these patterned papers but I forgot that green seems to give me trouble and trouble it was all yesterday I kept going to and fro from it! Sadly it has not turned out the way I wanted it but never mind, will have to try again with these papers, perhaps a different layout might help you never know.
I have used white card stock to make the square card, Coredinations Poseidon card stock, Coredination Vanilla Cream card stock, Crate Portrait patterned papers x 3, Spectrum Noir pens numbers 132,1 33, 142, 196, 02, 24, 37, 104, 100,96, 11, 183, 175, 109, 42, 43, 51, organza ribbon, flowers, gem stones, sentiments to be added later and of course the lovely rubber stamped image called Pink Lightning from Crafts and Me.
We thats all for now folks, obviously need a bit more rest to try and get that ole mojo working again, so until next time, do take care and happy crafting, lol

Sorry not been around, have found it hard to get motivated plus I have been suffering with an eye problem yet again. It seems for several years now the problem reappears of the year but mostly round about this time of year, either I am allergic to something or its a stress issue due to Christmas, but luckily enough I have found a home remedy that makes it feel easioer on a drs website. Use a warm washcloth over the eyes for 10-15 minutes for 4-6 times a day, it works I have started to next it easing on Wednesday which has allowed me to enough feel better to craft.
Whinge over so now down to business, for my final entry to this challenge I have made a card which I will probably use as a birthday card. I have used white card stock to make the square card, Prima Londonery patterned papers x 3, Bazzill Basics Dark Blue card stock, Bazzill Basics Cream, Gem Stones, Cream Lace, Flowers, Spectrum Noir pens numbers 132, 133, 142, 196, 104, 100, 96, 14, 0, 175, 109, 43, 35, 33, 24, 37, 178 and of course the lovely Crafts and Me rubber stamped image called Clematis. The layout was something I tried before but could not get to grips with it as its by another crafter known to many as the lovely, very talented Coops.
Well thats it for me until next time, do take care and happy crafting, lol
