At Last A Card!!!...

Can you believe it?!!!
At very long last,I am in my new craft room (will take some pics later!!!) & able to get to all my stash again,ohhhhh it feels gooooood!!!
I eased myself back in gently with this card,it's for a luvly girl who came to work with us for a few weeks whilst on a break home from Uni,but it's her last shift tomorrow,so I wanted to make her a lil card to remember us by.
I coloured the Diane Duda image with a mix of Copics & Promarkers,card is Coredinations,paper is Exquisite by Papermania,ribbon is SU & sentiment is done with alphabet stamps.

I hope everyone is well in blogland & that you will all start dropping by again,missed you all lots & lots!!!

Just wanted to pop in & say "hello",can't do much else still,lol!!!
Hope you are all ok & getting ready for xmas.
It was my work's xmas do last night,we went for a meal & some of the girls went on to pubs & clubs afterwards,but I was good & came home,I'm a bit too old for all that malarky!!!
I'm making some xmas cards at the mo,but it's taking forever,as I don't have a craft room yet,so working on any free surface,out of boxes & it's very off-putting,searching for stuff.
Not heard anything from the insurance yet about a replacement laptop,can't wait to be up & running again.
I will photo any cards I get made & put them on here,just to prove to you all,I am still crafting,lol!!!
See you all soon :o)xxx <3

Well,I'm nearly back!!!...

I know I told you all I was back,but I wasn't expecting to discover my laptop had been stolen!
We turned the house upside down,several times & then realised we had missing items from our cellar.The only people to go in there were some workmen we had in,in the first few weeks we moved in,but as we had no internet,we hadn't needed the laptop.
Paul had also been commenting that his tools were missing, as he was doing jobs around the house,so far a circular saw & a jigsaw!
It's an awful feeling,we had to report it to the police & the insurance,so hopefully it will be sorted soon.
I'm using Paul's laptop now,but all my images & photo's that were stored on mine have gone :o(
They also took the external hard drive,so I can't install the printer on Paul's,I'm all at 6's & 7's at the mo.
I have got some images coloured,so will try get by with them for now & hope to show something soon :o) xxx

Double Dutch Challenge #25~Back In Time...

( Sorry this pic is blurred,I was sober,honest!!!)
This fortnights DD challenge is to choose 1 of the previous challenges (all are listed for you).I luv DD,they are sooo creative & have taught me so many ideas & all are easy to follow,so I chose the 1st ever challenge,Purses 'R' Us & this is it.
The gorgeous stamp was sent to me by Jilli (Thanx x),coloured her with ProMarkers,card is Bazzill,papers I'm not too sure about got them in a kit,think they are called Katelyn.I made lil journalling cards to go inside the pockets (see below).Fab challenge & has taken me ages!!!

Now,a lil tale about my lil doggie Badger (see pic below,he is rather handsome!!!).
Badger has been going mad down the side of the shed,that is next to the joining wall with next door,he is whining & running about like a looney,I started to think there was either a mouse or a rat in the shed (ewww!),until yesterday!...

I got out of my car on the drive & saw some eyes peeping at me from inside the Garden Waste bags,on next doors drive,lol!!!!
Yes,they have a cat (it's the most angriest looking cat I have ever seen!!!) & it must be warm & cosy in the bag with the grass cuttings.Badger must have been able to hear/smell the cat over the wall & cos he's so tiny he was going barmy to get to it.
Panic over no mouse/rat,Phew!!!

Thanx for stopping by & have a luvly day :o)xxx
