FIRST POST IN 2013

I can't believe it is almost 6 months since I posted.  The time really does fly "when you are enjoying yourself" as they say!!    We celebrated our Ruby Wedding Anniversary at the end of September after spending a week in Killarney, Southern Ireland and also celebrated my husband Maurice's 65th birthday at the end of November in Blackpool with some friends.  Then of course Christmas came and went.  Here we are now, well into the new year. 

I bought Craft Stamper magazine because I loved the free stamp and used this in the cards below
  I did make several similar cards but these are the best two I feel.




































I made another card this week using an image that I really love - from the Wellington range - a little girl hugging Wellington bear. However, although I love colouring I find it so difficult to colour hair and bears! Also, I have difficulty with colouring large areas. One or two kind crafty friends have pointed me in the right direction of tutorials so I am going to practice and may be buy some more Promarkers!!! A good excuse!!! Here is Bad Hair Day Girl With Wellington.
