Getting back on the swing of things ....

Well it's been a long time (again) since my last post but things were hectic (again) for a while but now I am determined to have some more "ME" time in 2013 and where possible ask for more help from my family and work colleagues rather than trying to accomplish everything on my own .... too hard, stressful and unrewarding.

Well it's Wednesday which means its Crafty Creations Challenge and the theme this week is "Something New". This could be use a new craft goodie, try a new technique or even try a new style. I've gone for using some new crafting goodies which I was given over Christmas .... Kaisercraft papers .... uuummm so divine .....

Papers: KaiserCraft, Sweet Nothings
Gems, heart buttons and ribbon from stash
Sentiment: freebie found on the internet and I forgot to record the site name
Flowers:  Wild Orchard Crafts
Beaded circle nesties die
Tattered Rose distress ink

 Here is a close up of the sentiment which I found whilst trawling the internet the other night on my new Christmas present from my lovely and generous sons ..... a Galaxy Tablet .... but rather silly, forgot to take a note of the sight I got the sentiment from, so if anyone can help, please let me know in the comments section, so I can credit the person who created the sentiment.

Now that I've made the card, not 100% sure I like it as it's a little over crowded (I think) but I had great fun making it so can ignore the "dislike" button in my head .... lol

I am also entering my card in to the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - vintage/shabby chic
Creative Creations Challenges - anything goes
Kaboodle Doodles Challenges - vintage/shabby chic
Use your stuff - use a circle

Have a great week everyone and I'm off to get back in to my crafting and to catch up on my blogging. I have so missed hopping from blog to blog, reading about how people have created their projects and then, looking up the products people have used so I can then possibly .... maybe .... or definitely add them to my existing crafting stash!
