I hope everyone has had a great Christmas this year.

I've had so much going on over the past few months that I've not been on here to update and put up some new pics of cards :(

So thought whilst I've got some time on my hands I would just upload a few that I've been doing over the past few months.
I've been making loads of keepsake cards which have been a great hit with my friends and family.

emma's 18th birthday prezzies

ok it was emma's 18th last week and this is what she wanted. as you can see this was a pretty strangeg present to give her but it's something she loves and will be with her forever she finally got them done today (very brave girl having both arms done at the same time) but the sayings are very fitting for her as a person.

sorry it's been so long

sorry it's been so long since I've been on here but I thought it was about time I updated it with some new cards.

I recieved an order from artymiss the other day and have been playing with my new stash. have to say though I was overly impressed with the bumper boxes I got 2 of the card making bounty and a dcwv the card making one were the same nothing different in the at all and it wasn't up to the standard I've had before I would say there wasn't £25 worth of stuff in the boxes so it will be a while before I get any of them again and the dcwv bag I got 6 items all for the sale page and that was it.

I loved the LLB papers I got though thought I would get some to have a play with.
I've had loads going on at home over the past few months with beth now in the middle of her exams , emma's 18th, Jay going over to visit cherry, and loads of other bits.

Positive thoughts

These are the first few pages I've made for my positive thoughts scrapbook.
I decided to make this one as I am trying and working hard at over coming my PTSD this year.
This is the front page I love this picture and thought that it was the right one to go on my first page.

the saying on this page reads:
Work hard at what you like to do and try to over come all obstacles. Laugh at your mistakes and praise yourself for learning them.
Pick flowers and appreciate the beauty of nature.
Say hello to strangers and enjoy the people you know.
Don't be afraid to show your emotions laughing and crying makes you feel better.
Love your friends and family with your entire being they are the most important part of your life.
Feel the calmness on a quiet sunny day.
Find a rainbow and live you world of dreams.
Always remember life is better than it seems.

The saying on this page reads:
Be thankful that you don't have everything you desire. If you did what would you have to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something for it gives you the oppotunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you the opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when your tired and weary, because it means you've made a difference.
It's easy to be thankful for the good things, a life of rich fulfilments comes to those who are also thankful for the set backs.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they become your blessings.

The saying reads:
Allow your inner light to guide you.
There comes a time when you must stand alone.
You must feel confident enough witin yourself to follow your own dreams.
You must be willing to make sacrifices.
You must be capable of changing and rearranging your priorities so that your final goal can be achieved.
Sometimes familiarity and comfort need to be challenged.
There are times when you must take a few extra chances and create your own realities.
Be strong enough to at least try to makes your life better.
Be confient enough that you won't settle for a compromise just to get by.
Appreciate yourself by allowing yourself opportunities to grow, develop, and find your true sense of purpose in this life.
Don't stand in someone else's shadow when it's your sunlight that should lead the way.

I hope everyone had a wonderful new year

This is my first ATC of the year. I thought after so many people had had areally bad year in 2008 it was time to say goodbye to it and welcome this year

This set of cards I've entered into the trimcraft challenge. Because I've not been well over the past week with my reaction to ferrero rochers I made these in one night

the backing on this one is from the oldworld mat stack

my second is again using the oldworld mat stack

this one is very plain and simple using peeloff stickers and sakura metallic pens

This one is again very simple just using peeloffs and sakura jellyroll pens the christmas green and red.
(Beth doesn't actually like this card at all is has nothing to do with the card it's actually the picture if you look it's the angel of death) I hadn't noticed this when I was making it.

Again another very simple one using peeloffs and sakura stardust when that had dried I used the jellyroll over the top to give a really beautiful effect.

This is my fire and Ice cross stitch which has taken me about four months to complete. Beth so kindly held it up for me to take the picture, I was glad to get it finished as working on the black was really becoming hard work. I'm really pleased with the results though.
