A Bit Distressed......

Not quite sure who is more distressed,the card or me.I think I went a bit OTT and think it looks a bit manky looking. (Scottish for dirty).However it's done now and so will have to do.It was a rush job as usual.I had two Mother's Day cards to make.The other I finished tonight but haven't been able to take a pic as it's too dark now.
The picture was on a disc with loads of vintage images I got from my friend.I printed it out onto Letraset Safmat and stuck onto cream cardstock,then distressed it with my BG Precision Toolkit.I'm quite pleased with the result ,as I'd had the Safmat for about a year and never used it.The card is another 8x8 seeing as it's for a special occasion.
Cardstock - SU Night Of Navy
Papers- SU Designer Series (Bashful Blue)
Vintage Image - From CD and printed onto Letraset Safmat
Stamps - Rhonna Farrer Autumn Leave Flourishes
Sentiment - Stamps Happen Inc

Long Time No Blog..........

Yes it's been a while since I last blogged. But as some fellow bloggers know my little boy was diagnosed with a long term disability last July and so he is my main priority now. Unfortunately my crafting and blogging has taken a back seat,as you can probably understand.I can't promise I'll be posting daily,but I'll try and keep up a bit more regularly.Sorry if I've not visited all your lovely blogs.I hope to spend some time catching up.

I've managed to make a few cards (and bought some) and also had to keep my scrapbooking classes going so I'll hopefully get some of it posted.Unfortunately my heads been in the clouds a
bit and forgot to take pictures of some of my cards....dooohhhhhh

This is a card I made for our friends little girl back in January. Daisy from Sugar Nellie coloured with Promarkers,Heidi Grace Paper and SU Stamp set.
I managed to pop along to the Hobbycrafts show at the SECC last Thursday with my friend Lesley. We had a fab day and met up again with the fantastic Kath and the lovely Alison.
I also got to meet some other lovely blog ladies,namely Lorraine, Gayle, Sue and Allison.
It was fabby to meet everyone and see what lovely stash we had all bought.Hope to see them all again in October.

Thanks For Looking
