More confessions.

Yes, it's true, I'm a heretic. I don't like Summer. I hate the heat and the flies, I like clear blue days but I prefer those of Spring and Autumn. Autumn is by far my favourite season of the year, bounteous with produce, Halloween, Guy Fawkes, cold crisp nights, planning for Christmas and cuddling up on cold afternoons with a good film and a hot chocolate.

However this weekend I got a layout finished that screams Spring and Summer, so I'm not a complete grump about it all :)

Another layout of my gorgeous neice. Hope you like it. I love the daisies and my new Catslife Press stamps.

Design team postings

I'm very fortunate to have a place on the Sugar and Spice design team, so if you haven't seen that blog already - and I do recommend it, here's some of my work for them so far. Marion has designed some really lovely and versatile stamps some of which have recently been featured on QVC.
My kittens make layouts easy, I'm completely biased but I think they're very photogenic.

A friend's wedding provided the inspiration for this card.
I really wanted to try something different for my third project, I'd had some of these frames at home for ages and had a couple of ideas in mind, one of which was this:
I hope you like them.

Confessions of a lapsed blogger

I've just realised how long it's been since last I blogged. Shame on me!

It has been a very busy time, a time of decorating the front room, dinners out with friends, a concert in the rain soaked to my undergrundies but fab music, and a hectic work schedule.

I have found some time to do some crafting, good job really as my friend's wedding is next weekend and I've still got stuff to do for her. The orders of service I've shown you already, they now have their inserts all done. The table plan is almost complete and as it's my first go I'm inordinately pleased with how it's come out. And, more to the point, the Bride and Groom are pretty pleased too.

So, tonight it's continuing on with the place cards - thankfully it's a simple design to do but it still takes a long while to get 60 odd done. Then, 8 table numbers and I'm done. Woo hoo. You've already seen the wedding card in another posting, now, the next big step? Remembering to take everything and keeping the kittens and their very dirty paws off of it all. Today was also my day for the Sugar and Spice Design Blog, take a look if you have a mo.
