Finally a bit of creativity.....

here are a couple of cards from this week. One was for a challenge...which as usual I forgot to photograph so missed the posting deadline! Ah well just as well they both have homes to go to, loads of birthdays in may and june so the more cards the merrier at the moment!

Oh and yes I did finally succombed to using "cutesy" images! I was given a set of really cute stamps for my Birthday, so pulled out the watercolours and had some fun! I guess more of these are to come as I loved the "painting".

As you can see I'm in a playing mood! So far I like my Banner, but I've still got some way to go with the overall LO. Don't expect changes took me a year to do a Banner...LOL!

So glad it's the weekend. DH and DS are both running our towns road race tomorrow (3kilometers and 1K for the "little one". I can't beleive it's a year since the last race already. I must do a LO again this year with my runners.

I got in today to find a lovely package from Kimmy, bestest web buddie ever, with the most gorgeous card ever, thanks hun. I've done a couple of cards myself this week but have not taken photos yet.

Such generous ladies on the web.

There are always such generous crafty folks on the web.

Here are just some of the many current "candies" from the lovely ladies of the Card making and Scrapbooking communities.

I'm off to continue exploring Blog land now... and try out some new tricks too!!

Well I'm 40!

Yup, no way to stop it.... it kind of crept up and flattened me. But you know what? I'm actually fine about it! Sure it seems like a grown up number, but I still don't feel like a grown up..... I'm sure my mental age is decreasing somewhere along the lines!

It's been a busy and kind of scary time for me recently. Money sucks..... health is dodgy.......scray stuff going on at work.......basically it feels like the world is ganging up on me at the moment. Despoite it all I am still feeling positive and having a great time, so I guess I'm managing to put everything in the correct perspective. (don't tell anyone but that's probably the age thing!!!).

I did have a bit of a play this week, so another LO to show you.Ross is getting very "grown up" too. I loved this photo of him I took recently. It works both in colour and B&W, but I had a hankering to do a B&W LO, so here it is.

I'm loving white cardstock at the moment.

I got loads of lovely cards from my online friends, so thank you everyone... you know who you are. I also received some amazing pressies from my family and friends, so thanks again to everyone.
