Where to re start?????

A Big Hello to all in blog land.
It's been deeply sad here for almost 2 years I have lost 3 very dear family members including my precious son, so I have been wondering around aimlessly in garga land for a long time so sorry to off load this in blog .
I have started to get the needing to get back to my cards I have spent a whole week working my things out giving them a good cleaning as the dust had settled over everything. I quite enjoyed it. My husband then brought me all my glues and inks that I needed , but I have just still sat here doing nothing so I came back to blog land and saw such amazing cards woooooow it have been such a treat to my eyes and now I'm even more determined to start again but where?.... Perhaps today will be the  day. I have missed blog land so very much . Xxxxxx

Amazing Christmas

I know its been forever since i was last here with you. I have so missed blog land i am going to try to find more time to be an active blogger this year.Firstly i like to wish you all a very very happy new year.
Well where to start after not being a fan of christmas most of my life because of the expense i think firstly having 5 children i always found things abit tight how i ever managed it ill never know..thank goodness for santa thats all i can say. but this year i found myself totaly in to christmas it was an amazing feeling, i found my self planning everything and enjoying every little thing about it. I made pickles sauces cakes decorations napkins and of course cards. I even managed to post some out this year to family. Christmas day was very magical for me ,it brings a lump to my throat just thinking about it. I had all my children together for the first time in a long while and their partners as they have almost grown up lol and an exra special friend also. It was an amazing christmas.
Anyway on to the best bit now ..The best of my vhristmas cards...which did look so much nicer in life than in the picture.

Thank you all for stopping by
Angel wishes

Have you had enough of me this week yet??lol. I have been in a creative mood.Its been so long i seem to be making up for lost time these past few days.
Bill knows what im like once i start so he makes himself busy doing things around the house he even cooked dinner tonight he is a real gem.well if he hadnt i dont know what time we would have eaten the tme just flew by.
And heres why.

i made 5 more plus i have a decrative cone i made at the weekend wich i will show you over the next few days.I need to start selling them again to fund my craving for some new stash but i m not that keen on that side of things it takes too long to make boxes and pack them and ohhh more mess lol.
Best go and have a clean up of my craft desk before i hop into blogland for a few hours.

woooow it arrived at last.

Feeling ill again from yet another virus i was unable to raise my head from my pillow untill my hubby bill walked in to the bedroom this morning with a cup of tea in one hand and a very large box in his other .
I soon sat up i can tell you. YES my box arrived and my oh my it sure was worth the wait.
I was so over welmed by the beauty of it it brought tears to my eyes.
The design and details are amazing im sure you will agree.
I love it so much i cant stop looking at it,

and sweet goodies inside

How lucky was i.
VERY id say VERY.
For those of you who didnt know.I took part in a valentines details of
wich are a few posts down from this one
.My swop partner is valerie from
all the way across the sea from america. Please pop over and take a look at her blog.
Unfortunatly she is still awaiting her box from me, we paid such a lot for the postage and was both told it would take around 5 days or so it had been almost 3 weeks for mine to arrive but it was so worth the wait.
Is like to thank cathy also for organising such a fantastic swop it was great fun and has been a great adventure meeting new peopl i would never have found in blog land.
below this post is all the links to the fab blogs i have discovered who took part in this swop.
I cant wait to find another one now,
please if any one knows of any could you let me know.
As soon as valerie recieves her box i will show you all what i made for her.
I hope she will be as pleased as i was with mine
love to you all

oh no

Juat when i thought i had made my last christmas card i was asked to make some more.1.000 red roses later and another trip to hobby craft to buy some more.wish there was  craft shops where i live,I have pleaded with the likes of the papermill shop to open one up and they said they would look in to it for me thats as far as they went.
The good news is from the sales of my cards this weekend i was able to buy at las,t a big shot have been using my ever faithful sizzix but its too small and i get fed up of tying to adapt all the dies to fit it.Did any one see that at the end of this month begining of next they have brought a new one out called the pro shot its so big but its 215.00 pound.

Here is my last card for this year .off now to find some challenges to enter.
I have so missed them the last few months.

my love for vintage cards

Seems like ages since i was in the land of blog with all my friends.Things have finally settled down again maybe only for a couple of days but thats good for our house.
I have been in full system operation getting some cards together for sale so i can fund this crazy addiction.I want some new stamps papers and punchs not much ay.
wooow as i am writing this post i just sold this card along with another that was quick i only listed about half an hour ago.woooow

Yep its a vintage one.I keep trying to move off this theme but im never happy with the results of anyhing else i i may as well just carry on and try to improve as i go along.
Im off now to have a look at all your wounderful work that i have missed out on over the last few weeks,I best put the kettle on its going to be a few hours before i finnish as usual.
thank you for stopping by and i hope you are well.
