Hello Peeps. I'm here again with another card..It's just about trying to get back into some kinda routine that cards are involved I've spent a couple of days just looking through my stash...
When you've not been using things for over 6 months the old memory tends to forget!!

An image from Pinterest for this Easter card...Coloured with Copics and papers from stash.
I've paper pieced these cute ears. Spellbinder and Magnolia dies used.  A little tea dye distress ink on the little fence.

What a state everything is! The storm last night was dreadful. Winds of 90mph just a short distance from me. Schools  are closed.   The  M62  motorway  has people still stuck now for over 18 hours in their cars, there's talk of the forces coming in at last to get them moving.

This little sweet and sentiment lives at Bugaboo Stamps and it's called JJ Tequila and shoes - Drinks with others Coloured with Copics. LOts of Glossy Accents on her glasses...I've cut the 60 out on the Cameo along with the Champagne bottles layering them all three times. Marieanne, Spellbinder, Poppy, Crealies and Die-namics dies. EK Success punch as well. Papers from stash.

This is the first card I've made since July.
Christmas cards were bought ones.  I knew I had to make this card especially because it was a special date. The reason why I've not been about is my husband died in October.  I'm grateful that he was able to stay at home with back up from the medical profession.  Grateful too for good friends and family. My MIL still can't believe it's happened. I'm going to try and ease myself back into card making, I've first got to try any remember what I have and how to use it again! Took my five minutes to remember where I stash my signature! and another ten to remember how to get it onto this card!!

These stamps are C.C. Designs.  Julie is the National Membership Officer for the Vikings. So I just had to buy them. Trouble was I wasn't sure which to use?  So I ended up using the set!  Coloured with Copics. Sentiment Computer generated..

Good Morning! I can tell I've not been in my craft room for over 3 weeks!
Looks spotlessly clean,  not a speck of glitter anywhere. Not even been bowling! things are so hectic.  Hubby still not feeling well.  His CT scan is Tuesday and they have brought his appointment forward to the beginning of August to see the specialist. Changed his medicine too. So fingers crossed.

Used scraps of paper for this one...The stars are Memory Box and the numbers don't seem to have a name on. Drawn the 'string on'. Strand of wool from a  lace sweater made many moons ago before cards took over. Shows I'm still a hoarder of most things lol..cause they do come in sometimes.
