Firstly, I would like to apologise for lack of blogging. But, life has got in the way.... big style.
I have made a decision to take a break from my blog, blog hopping, blogs in general... plus....... card making. ...........
I hope that my lovely followers keep me on their 'list'... so that if and when I return, you will be there. I will miss you guys , and your fantastic comments.. and visiting your blogs (even if I dont always leave a comment :( ) .
Think I will be off to Tesco soon to buy some cards !!!.
Take care peeps , and I hope to rejoin you very soon. big hugs
ps ... I will put some pics of the kitchen on, (as and when it is finished... DONT HOLD YA BREATH... )

Update on Life !!

Hi guys.....
I am SO sorry I have been AWOL, but Im sure all the usual passers through, will probably have guessed why !!! ... KITCHEN... grrrr...
NO it STILL not finished, and Ive now fallen out with the builder... as most of probs are down to him... lack of organisation to say the least .
so he wont be finishing off the kitchen. !!! ie tiling, as can't see him fitting that in before xmas thics year !!! . taken 5 weeks to get thus far. grrr... anyway... far too many probs to mention, but to say, anything that could have gone wrong has, and I still havent ended up with the kitchen I wanted !!!!!...
so NOT a happy bunny.
will add a photo of my lounge SOB SOB SOB... and you will see why I not happy !! Needless to say I have not made any cards either, as can not settle as up and down sorting out problems, to the point I gave up trying. I have two baby cards I desperately need to finish, and my head or heart just not in it, gone brain dead I think.
right... off to take some tiles back in a bit, at least i know what i want, but... who fits them is another matter lol...
So to alll the peeps , blog and things I should have kept up to date with, I havent and I am sorry, but... hopefully soon I will be back to normal, as normal gets :)

Ps... incase anyone notices, lol... I have decided to leave Digi Ink DT for personal reasons.

Old Stamp

Bought this last Xmas, and it didnt really see much use, (or was it the year before??... more probable, when I come to think about it LOL) either way... it didnt get very dirty either way ! Never really knew what to do with it.. hehe... not much better this year.. however, added a bit of colour to his face (yes copics... cant see me going back to water colours for a LONG while).. might need to invest in some decent paints now.. maybe thats the problem ... any reason to have a spendy... oh sorry .. back to stamp/card.. bit of sparkle, acetate cb snowflake with crushed glass... is it called diamond dust??? well that stuff anyways.. lol... a charm.. and done... Now you know I told you all I do quick Xmas cards.... well I think this is another one that proves my case LOL.
Lost my mojo last couple of days, defo think it got in back of kitchen delivery truck and has gone awol for a while... luckily this one was made a few days ago..
I have FINALLY managed to make this weeks DIC challenge card, which I will be adding to blog tomorrow... ooooh theres LOTS coming up from DIC.. so keep your eyes well and truely peeled !!!!! You won't want to miss out ..... !!!!
