Still Alive !

Hi Everyone,
I feel like I'm always apologising lately for being such a bad blogger :-( I have been so busy I need an extra 24 hrs in a day lol. I finally decided to take the plunge and try to build up a little business now that our granddaughter is at nursery full time and starts school in September so I am no longer on nanny duty every day. I have booked up for quite a few craft fairs over the next few months too so I have to do lists coming out of my ears ! I'm loving it though after dreaming of having the time to do something for me for a long time, I just need twice as much of it !

Anyway apologies to Shell and my lovely teamies that my DT post for the new challenge at My Time To Craft is so late, I had the card made in plenty of time I just haven't been able to get on the PC to blog it !

The Challenge this fortnight is Circles so quite a lot of scope for ideas there, as I am woefully behind on Christmas cards for my stash box I decided to make one of those.

I used some of the images from the 'Scrumptious Christmas' set from DSB coloured with Promarkers and a sparkle gel pen. I cut the circles with my stitched circle dies and then matted onto the red and Kraft panel. The reindeer paper I downloaded years ago and can't remember where it was from now but I thought it was really cute. The sentiment came with the images and I just punched the corners with a Tonic corner punch. Some Josy Rose nail heads just finish it off.
I decided to make an A5 card this time which I hardly ever do but think I will be making more this size and this card is also nice and flat for posting.

Well that's all for now, while I am on the computer I am going to do some visiting of your lovely blogs as I have really missed seeing all of your gorgeous cards,

Big Crafty Hugs
