…After such a mega craft fest last week where it seemed I was popping cards out like farts, this week I’m finding myself in a creative desert.  Can’t even find inspiration sat here at the pc. 😦     I think I must have exhausted myself!   I’m hoping it returns within the next 24 hours tho’, I have a demo day on Saturday so I really really need some mojo back for that!  Maybe it’s because I’ve tried to have a French Fancie free week, although FrissyFooFoo has just placed a box in front of my squinty little eyes. Although I have to say I can’t stomach even one at the mo as we had chish and fips for tea and I’m still feeling a little icky from all the lovely greasiness. 

Anyway, prior to my cardmakers block it was my gorgie friend Michelle’s birthday last week and I made her a card which I couldn’t post till now.  Lucky girl was on hollies in Jersey with her family for her b’day and I’m soooo jealous, will someone abroad please adopt me into their family?  I always wanted some family abroad as it seems dead glam to me, so my adoption criteria is:

1. You have to live in either the USA, Canada or a really really cold place that gets tons of snow for at least one third of the year.  And that doesnt include anywhere in the UK!!!

2. I can dream of visiting you whenever I like.

3. You send me a pic of where you live.

4. You do lots of crafting so I can come and stay for craft holidays.

In return I promise to be really really good and send you a crimbo card at least once a year.

Reet, anyways, here is the card I made for Michelle, think she liked it…imgp2698My Ladbybird and Magnolia stamps are already fave acquisitions and I did warn that everything would be covered in Ladybirds.  I’ve also decided I am allowed to use my Fastenator now I’ve had it for at least 4 years and was ashamed at how many staples I’d actually bought for it and never used. I think my unspoken stash rule is that if it’s been there over 3 years I can use it even if it is still presh.imgp2697


My inspiration for this was that Michelle is such a girly girl I thought she’d like these lovely colours and I coloured her little shoes bright red as they reminded me of  my fave red wellies I had when I was little (I think they were mine, maybe they were my sister’s?hmmm must ask). The Ladybird on the seat is actually the same as the others, I just inked carefully and changed the shape slightly with a black pen.  Anyway, I’m freezin my pips off here tonight so I’m gonna tuck up into bed and wait for the delish Marco and 9pm on ITV.  Oooooo what a man!!  Unlike grotty Ken from Corrie who, to coin Peter’s corker last night is strutting about like a geriatric tomcat!!!  Hmmm I just realised I AM able an definitely will use that line at work tomorrow as it’s very applicable to someone there!!  cough cough, no names, ok!!  x
