As I said I was in the process of making another card, this time for ABC's Challenge Blog - they are currently on "J" and this week it's "J for jewels".
I've used backing papers from my stash box, the stamp is from a set of 4 unmounted "Sassy Ladies", but I don't remeber where I got them from!! - sorry! the jewels are "Beadazzles" which I picked up at my local craft shop, have had for AGES and have only just used for the first time!
P.S. I will probably not be posting again 'till after the weekend as I am off to London tomorrow for "The Big Stamp Show" at Ally Pally. If you would like to come along and say hello, you can catch me at the Particraft stand.

So, where to start?!!......ok well, firstly I've posted a few pics from our holiday (which now seems like such a long time ago) nonetheless kids had a fab time and it was a nice break for Kevin and me!
As I've been so busy, I've had no time for crafting although at the end of the day - VERY VERY end!! I ocassionally checked in on fav blogs etc., which made me jealous because while everyone was merrily crafting away....I wasn't! - but it also made me realise how much I missed it - I know I was away for 2 weeks hol and did no crafting, but that was different, the fact that I was at home amongst all my "crafty" things all I could do was look and walk past........how fustrating!
Anyway, last night I made a quick card for my Mum's friend who is getting married tomorrow!.. She is 67 and after being widowed for 16 years has found love again......Fantastic!
For this card I have used various pieces of left over scrap papers the "Ball Gown" stamp from Particraft and buttons and ribbons from my stash. I decided to have a go at stitching the card, I really like the effect, it was easy to do and I will definitely be using that technique again in other projects.
And last but not least.....
I've now posted my September BLOG CANDY!!!!....(here)
Have a great weekend!
