And here are some I made earlier...

Hello. I've still been crafting whilst I've been on my extended holidays so here's just a couple of cards to show you.
My latest passion is quilting and I am now hooked on it...but so is my credit card :(
I've also taken up knitting so we are all proudly wearing new scarves this winter lol :)
Still missing my boy and can't wait to see him in 4 weeks for his passing out parade.

Hello all. Have finally got round to looking at my blogs after months of neglect and nearly ran the other way. So after much thought (and a couple of glasses of Merlot) I've decided to simplify things in the hope of not feeling quite so daunted by the whole prospect of blogging again.

I realised many months ago that I was spending so long blog hopping that the crafty side of me was being completely neglected and that is the whole point of my blog! Don't get me wrong I love looking at other peoples work (that's where the inspiration comes from) but sometimes the pressure to create and keep on top of challenges can be a bit overwhelming and then spending up to 3 hours going through my blog list, everyday to keep up with you all :), is just...well...overwhelming.

So my blog list is empty. I plan to slowly and gradually build it back up and spend the time appreciating my friends creativeness instead of worrying that I may offend them if I don't comment on their blog every day...and yes I know I'm not the only one that thinks like this ;)

A lot has happened in my personal life since my last post and all good for a change. My wonderful son has become a junior soldier and hopes to become part of the Royal Artillery. To say I'm the proudest mum in the world is a very small understatement. Missing him like mad and still not used to music not blaring out of his bedroom every night!

We are also having a new addition to our family in April...and no I'm not expecting. My darling Nana is moving back from New Zealand to live with us and we are over the moon. I just wish I could persuade my mother to move back to the UK as well...if you are reading this mother please take note!

Finally (you can stop snoring now) many thanks to everyone that has kept in touch and for all my lovely cards...I have a huge boxful and I promise that when I get the time I will display them all for you to see that I really did appreciate them and keep them!

So I will be over to visit you in the not to distant future and look forward to seeing what you've been up to.
