I am back!!!!!!

Hi all I haven't dropped dead, just surviving the school holidays!
I have been a very busy bee and not touched one card. I have been doing my course in Nottingham and in between that been a busy bee decorating the house and getting it finished off. Been to Splash Landings with the kids and hubby. Also just enrolled in an OCA distance learning course that will help towards a degree in Creative Arts. So yep been busy.
I have added some pics of the book we have been working on in Nottingham. We covered a book with fabric, then painted, distressed and added fabrics onto sheets of very big paper to create the pages of the book. This was great fun and a weekly therapy session. We then cut ad distressed the paper and then threaded it and bound it into a book. We added buttons and text to the pages and lots of lush text. I have to say I love touching the book and loved using all new things I hadn't before. I will write again soon with the yummy dolls we distressed and made.

Well I have been so so so busy this week don't know how I fit sleeping in????
My daughter Paige sang in a cluster choir in Lincoln cathedral on Wednesday and she was amazing (she is only 7) but made me so very proud in a great historical, spiritual place singing her heart out.
I have blogged the book I did today at The textile workshop in Nottingham with Claire today. I really really enjoyed sitting quietly (no racing around) for a few hours and crafting. I used Paper Artsy stamps, loads of distress inks and some fab papers and stamps (postage kind) I am pleased with what I did and came away refreshed. Going to need that off to demo at Doncaster on Sunday, been a while so got to get back into it. Next week I may even get to do some challenge cards I keep meaning to do at the beginning of the week.

For Tim and Cherida.....

I made these cute cards today for my brother Tim and his wife Cherida who live in America. They have just been given a little 2 week baby girl called Isabella to foster, fingers crossed it will go further and they may adopt. She is lovely I am so so pleased for my little brother, giving his love to children who need it. A star.
Hope you like them. I loved doing some pink things for a change.

Been assembling a fab climbing frame/swing thing for the kids today they are very very spoilt. Poor dad has been has been helping with the mountain of flat pack what a nightmare. I will add a picture when It is up and the kids are having bundles of fun.

Penny black card challange Swirls

Hi all,
well in between everything this week I have done a card for the Penny Black challenge. It was swirls. I popped a piece of paper through the dusty cuttlebug and stamped swirls on the background too. Then stamped the little penny black dog and added the sentiment. It was good fun doing a challenge after so long so I may do a few more this week.

My sock buddies

Hi all, I have been so busy lately my little feet have not touched the floor. The show at the weekend in Lincoln was great. I was supposed to be having a day out but ended up helping Ali and Iain on the stand. It was great fun though as I got to see so many people. I took my new little creations out with me and they got a great reaction. They are my sock buddies, so I have made 10 more to be taken to Edinburgh this weekend!! They are crossing the boarder.
I will set a new challenge in the next few days I have not been lazy just busy and the lovely school hollies are great! We took the kids to Skeggy today I did not know what to expect but it was great seeing the kids light up on the beach and have loads of fun. The weather helped loads how nice and it is going to just get better over the next few days!!!!!

Busy busy busy........

My hubby (Stu)

Me in sunny London

Well I am still here! I have been very busy this week I have a new project in the pipe line. I will blog them soon enough! I have done a couple of Tilda cards I will blog those tomorrow, been very naughty, just not enough hours in the day especially when I have been gallivanting!!
I have just come back from London, my very first time. I went for an early birthday prezzie and it was fab. Me and the hubby saw the fab Phantom Of The Opera and it was spine chilling. So romantic so I am on cloud nine, just as I can't walk anymore, my legs and feet are so so sore, but it was all worth it. I have added some pics.
Looking forward to the Lincoln show on Sunday should be great.

Magnolia challange 'one for the girls'

Well got some new Magnolia stamps and just loooovvvveeee them! I have done the 'one for the girls' challenge this week for Just Magnolia weekly challenge. I got a little carried away and did two cards. I am just loving the distress pads I have used them here to colour the images in with. I love the way you can water them down and get the shade and light right, just makes them look more realistic.

New stamps are here!!!

Hi all I would like to introduce my new range of stamps. Myself and my hubby are Angel Art and we brought you all the Ugly Bugs last year. In between everything we have been beavering on a new set. They are 'Angels'. I absolutely love them Hubby has done a great job again (he draws them). My favorite one is 'Rose Angel', I love her hair and she could be a mermaid or Angel.
Hope you all like them? They are not on the website yet but if anyone would like them they cost £4.99 each and you can email Ali and get an order in stating which one you would like. She will send them to you and be adding them on Monday. I had so much fun stamping with them, loved using mystical colours and lots of distress ink. Hope you all enjoy the sample cards.

Tilda and Edwin mad or just mad!

I have gone mad over Tilda and Edwin, well in between getting all my new demo cards ready for my new range of stamps launching on the weekend!!!
I have done this pirate one, it was for my little boy Logan's birthday but I changed my mind and did him another, he is only 6 and a male so just shakes the card for the money to drop out then throws the card never to be seen again.
What horrid weather this weekend, shouldn't expect anything else! Have been playing though with the re-inkers and colouring with them, I love them all.
I have also decided today that someone in my house eats the toilet roll. Every time I go to use it I have to change it!!!! maybe the cat has been hiding it??

well off to think over some more designs

The sun has got it's hat on ......

Hip Hip horay!!!!!
Ha all I absolutely love the sunshine. It makes everything all happy. I have been working hard in my Craft room but that is all top secret as we have our new stamp range coming out in a week or two so very excited!!!!
I made these cards I have posted at the Saturday craft group. They are all shabby and lush, so I was pleased with them. The tea-party one is a crafty individuals stamp. You can get that from Ali.
My wedding anniversary today only a ickle 8 years but that is a long time. And we have done so much in those years. But long continue our fun as it has been the best 8 years of my life. A very happy bunny. Got a stash of crafty bits so over the moon.

How exciting New Digi Downloads are here!!!

Hi all I am so very excited to introduce you to my new fab Digi-Downloads. They are very hot for our first ones!!!! Great for those male cards we all struggle with all the time. We thought as both being in the RAF they would be great to send instead of a bluey to family and friends who are serving away from home as they do need a pick me up and the market is lacking in something bit juicy! And for all those hormonal teenagers!!
I will have a gallery on Ali-Craft website as of tomorrow but I have put all of the cards I have been making on this post. I hope you all love them as much as I do. My hubby Stu is the artist and NO I have not modelled for these as I am sure I will get asked this lots. (If only my bum and belly were that wobble free!!!). If you love them please leave a comment as they are our first ones and there will be more on the way.
Love and Bugsxx

Play your cards right!

Get well soon
