OMG doesn't time fly!

Crikey, just realised I have not posted since 1st Jan!  and that's with having the computer in a much easier place to use and upload photos - sorry folks (well, Alison, as nobody else reads my blog, and Alison has been nagging me today to update it!).

It's not that I haven't been making cards, in fact I've been much better than normal at getting them made, I just now need to get back into the habit of blogging them too.  I also think I need to get back to colouring as the ones I've made recently have all been done with decoupage and pre-done images.

For now I'm just going to show one of the cards I've done (will give me something else to blog tomorrow if I don't have anything else made).

This card was made using the Fizzy Moon pad I got cheap from The Range - really pleased I got this as it's allowing me to get ahead with Christmas cards for 2013 (yes I know I should have my mouth washed out with soap for that but hey ho).  The sentiment stamp is one of my many Lili of the Valley stamps.  I think I have too many stamps and always want more, but have not used even half of the ones I already have - perhaps I should make that my resolution (from now - I have already bought some new stamps this year) - no more buying new stamps until I have tried to use all of the ones I have.  I think I could probably stamp an image every day this year and still not use all of the stamps that I have, but I couldn't possibly part with any of them as I know that the moment I do, I will find a use for the one that's gone!

I have had a really good crafting time this afternoon with Alison who gave me a wonderful and totally unexpected present of the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 28 - they are so gorgeous and I can't wait to find a use for them, in fact just as I'm typing this an idea is forming.....

Anyway, I'm rambling so I shall leave you for today - see Alison, I did as I was told!!!
