Anyway onto craft, I have tidied my craft room and I'm ready to get going with some projects. I hope my mojo is coming back. Today I'm sharing a card I made 2 weeks ago. It's made for Jones crafts and I used g45 cafe Parisian. It's intended to be a simple afternoon tea invite, with details printed inside.
- Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 41 years and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol, Toni Darroch at stamps by me limited and Eclectic Ellapu challenge blog. I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job. Well I hope you like what you see on my blog. I'm always grateful for people taking a peek and leaving messages x

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed the festivities. This was my first Christmas where I have had some decent time off in 21 years and it's been fabulous. We had a lovely Christmas Eve. We went to the Crematorium during the day to take something for my little brother. Then we went home watched a Christmas film and had a nice meal. On Christmas Day I was up at 4.30 with excitement ( yes I'm like a little kid lol ). We had a lovely lunch out and just came home and chilled out the rest of the day. Boxing Day We had our usual party and I put on a Buffett. We played games and had a few drinks, and we had some of the guests stay over and I cooked the 6 of us a full English the next day. Today I've had my godchildren here all day and we have crafted, been out for food and played games. So it's been a lovely time spent with some wonderful people.

Hello to all my lovely followers. Sorry the posts have been somewhat erratic and slow. It's been a real difficult few weeks for me and I feel I'm only just sorting myself out. Sadly on 9th of December (also my 41st birthday) we said goodbye to the most amazing brave lady. My lovely friend Rachel. So my heart has not really been into crafting but I did spend a bit of time in my craft room the other day. Here's what I did...
I wrapped up hubbys aftershave with some graphic 45 papers and covered an MDF tag. The collection used was St Nicholas. Thank you to Darren Saxton at Jones crafts for sending me these wonderful Papers.
Well must dash having a new colour put in my hair and a cut at the hairdressers today. I fancied a change lol.
Take care friends and big hugs.
Love Elaine xxxx
