No crafting today, have been struggling all day with allergies after cleaning the house.  But I have been browsing the web tonight and reading blogs and decided to enter one of my cards into a challenge. I keep seeing these challenges and think 'Ooh what a good idea', so thought it was about time I entered some.

I've entered Fab n Funky Challenge #135 Use Leaves somewhere  entry number 25 and Moving Along with the Times Shape up with anything but square entry number 104.

Tot's Tuesdays

Started work on a new boys card design today. Little boys love trains, or all the ones I've met do. So I've started working on a double fold train card on SCAL. Looking forward to finishing this on the next TT.

Masculine Mondays

Yesterday's makings ran over into today due to a certain little person's poorly teeth.  I was searching for some masculine inspiration on-line and came across something similar, so decided to have a go.  Here's the result, I'm so pleased with this one. It will definitely be one for the website.

Tots Tuesday

I took advantage of Sophie's long sleep this morning to make a card for a certain young danish boy's birthday.
Thanks to Birds Cards, I found a very suitable svg file.  Here's a clue; all the bits cut ready to construct my card.

I'll post the card on the next Tots Tuesday post, after the birthday has passed.

Well, I'm not crafting today. Instead I'm having an organising and planning day.  If you look on the right hand side now, you'll find a list of Frequent Themes for you to browse if, for instance, you're only interested in cards with flowers, or cards with get the drift.

I've also decided to plan my days a bit better. Rather than just sitting at my craft table and waiting for inspiration, my week will now consist of Masculine Mondays, Tots Tuesdays, Women's Wednesdays, Themed Thursdays and Free-for-All Fridays. I'm planning to have weekends off, but if I can't keep away because inspiration is flowing, then there will be a Weekend Wonders Post!

I'm still here...

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted. Life has overtaken us once again.  We've all been ill again - within one week, Wayne was rushed into hospital with suspected Viral Meningitis (thank god it wasn't), I had another bout of Gastritis and Sophie caught Chicken Pox. With that, Sophie's teething, crawling / exploring, I've not had too much time to craft, but am now back en route again.

Here are my latest personal makes, in June...
