And so Christmas is around the corner. As I browse my friends blogs, wow... they are so into making Christmas cards and they are all so lovely !!

My little nurse and companion in the day is Sheba my Norwegian cat. She has been by my side through sickness and happiness the last 11 years. And she loves to lay near me when I am busy crafting :-))
 Here is my latest card, that was inspired by all the bling I received in out last RAK at the Papercrafters.The word LOVE is a rubberstamp from my stash

Busy with cricky

My apology

Wow, can't believe how time flies. I just seem to run out of time these days and never ever realized that my blog has bee over a year old and I have not been reporting on all the wonderful and creative things I have learnt.
I would like to apologize to all my followers, due to my health I have not been blogging as much as I wanted to.
Hopeful things will change with the grace of our Lord in the coming months.

Last month I made some ATC Cards for my friends in Papercrafts on ""
I just wanted to tank each one of them for their continuing support !!

Yip ATC's can become addictive, as so many other craft... know why... is destress you and you don't need a dr for that lol


Geepish, a month gone pass and I didn't post anything. My inspiration has been up and down to Cape Town with the Air Show and it has been going hectic this side.

Now, I have not totally been out of craft action, as love is in the air and the weddings fever is running high amongst the younger generation. I was not aloud to take back seat and was commissioned to make special cards for a friend and the result was nice even if I must say so lol
This was my 1st attempt with the beautiful frame from the Spellbinder Framiblities Die cut. The bride and groom was cut with the Cricut and the faces was stamped with Peach Keen Stamps.

This card was made on a special request for a company that would like a formal invitation with a red dress and a gents tux with die cuts. Glitter mist and gems was added to the dress and some gems as buttons to the tux and both was cut with the Cricut Machine. The frame was done with a Spellbinder die and the flowers with a punch from Creative Memories.

Flimsy Lady was made for a swap in one of my groups.
 I used the Cuttlebug emboss folder for the background and the flourish was made with a Spellbinder die.
The lady was cut with the Cricut Machine.

Sorry gals, that I have been sometime last on my blog, as the building dust is slowly coming to a rest.
The newly built bathroom, still needs paint, fittings and a door and the other walls in our room and lounge needs a nice coat of paint aswell. Slowly but surely things should return to normal around here and I can get back to blogging :-)

Something I just had to share......

Crafts are here, crafts are there.
My craft supplies are everywhere.
I really should clean this mess,
But I like it, I must confess.
Floor is littered, chairs are piled,
Kitchen’s looking pretty wild.
On the table counter too,
Seems that any place will do.
Hall is stacked with cartons high,
Filled with things folks like to buy.
Garage is full, but so far …
There’s still room to park the car.
I never have an idle day,
New ideas come my way.
Don’t know yet what I’ll create,
But at least my imagination’s great.
My family smiles, they don’t complain,
Although at times I am a pain.
But when all is said and done,
I really am a crafty one !!
