Catch up and awards

I hope now that everything is back on track, and my  Husband and I have had the most fantastic holiday in Rome that I can get back to crafting, I have sat there and looked at my bits and bobs so often, but my head has been so full of other rubbish I could not seem to create anything.

Having had this holiday, I thought I would get things going by having a go at Scrapbooking it and I have had a great deal of fun doing it so far, I'll post some pages from it when I've finished.  These are a couple of recent cards - so I think I'm getting there :)

Thanks Dee for your award - it has cheered me up no end!!

Step 1 - Make a post linking back to the person who gave you the award!
Step 2 - Share 7 random things about yourself
Step 3 – Award 15 recently discovered bloggers with this award

YAY an award!!

This year has got off to such a rubbish start, the reason for the lack of crafting and absence of posts that it has been lovely to be given an award for my blog.  Here is a card I've made for my son's girlfriend's 21st.  Since taking the pic I've added some bling amongst the ribbon - so now the card has cost me even more of a fortune - but really fun to make - I hope she likes it!!

It is always nice to know that people are looking at what you do.  My niece does but never comments and so it was not until recently that I discovered that she appreciated my cards too!!

The lovely Shaz from calligraphy cards has given me an award.

Thank you so much

There are a couple of conditions for the award

You have been TAGGED and want to participate?
Then create a post where you post the 'LOVE BLOG' image.

You should also blog the persons link that gave you the award and inform her/him that you accept the award.

You can then choose 3 - 5 favourite blogs which you also link in your post, then each blogger will inform you that they have been tagged.

Dear bloggers:
The aim of this action is that we bring unknown, good blogs to light, so I would ask you not to blog fellow bloggers that already have 3,000 followers  

I don't follow many blogs at the moment - but here are the two I most enjoy looking at

Eileen Godwin (such an inspiration!)
Dee (really cute cards)
