About Me

Im 39 years old and work in retail as a Deputy Manager. I love to craft whether it be cardmaking or altering something. I have been crafting for almost 10 years and it helps me to relax after those busy days at work. My big aim was to blog regular and get onto a design team, now Im on 2. Very proud to have recently made Jones design team. I am godmother to 2 lovely children Matty & and Rebecca...Hope you all like what you see and thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving comments.

Evening and today Im sharing a card I made ages ago for my DT over at eclectic ellapu. Theme for the purple team was for a man, and theme for pink team was time. So I thought I would combine the 2 ! 
Here it is.....

Please do hop over and look what my teamies have made. This might be my last post before the wedding. Im hoping to put some pictures of the big day before I go on honeymoon. Take care & dont forget the blog candy when I reach 50 followers. 
Thanks for all the lovely comments xxx
