Seeeeee I made some cards

Ive had these decoupage sheets sitting in my  box forever well since I last went in my shed  they were in my to do  box and well I'm ready  to get on with the things to do The first couple of cards are La Pashe decoupage I did have another one  but  the picture has gone awol.

  oh well....   its for my sister anyway so  best not to put it up before her birthday. 
I'm as usual  sticking to  simples technique...  whilst getting back into things my copics are still gathering  huge amounts of dust and I know I'm not ready to play with them for a while yet but after clearing out the cob webs and  dead bugs and rubbish from my shed  I had a clear space and what  better than  to   make a few cards  and create a mess again.
 I used some simple matt and layering and used a bit of silicone for the decoupage.The  two cards  here are wellington die cuts and  decoupage sheets that I picked up  at a local shop  cant remember where now  but I did find them  really cute. So you see I have been crafty  and Ive been  busy making  jewellery since   AM  and I have another fabulous  crafty weekend  with my  fabulous daughter   to look forward in october too  so life is  good  and    Im happy  getting life back on track  and  living each day as it comes
  Catch me soon

January, February, March, April May June July Aug................

...................... is it time to come out of  hibernation yet. 
 How  you  doing  peeps 
My blog has been  neglected. yep  all  too soon the days turned into weeks and then months again and all  the cobwebs have been left to catch the bugs in the shed. 
 Can I say I've been busy well  with  life...... welllll I guess yes, and work.....a definate  yes, with crafting........ NO
and there were decisions, decisions,of  do I delete my blog or not...........
well as my blog was originally a place to put  my mumblings as well as my bumblings through craft stuff  then I decided it should stay (and I should use it more note to self ).
 My crafting time well there has been none ..... none at all unless you can call making play dough  and making paper planes and fans  craft. That is until  the annual visit to appleby magna  occurred in  June this year. ( and I have to say my makes were fun and I did get the urge to enter my shed where all the bugs are making new homes quite nicely in my button box ewwwe
 and I did get the urge to buy new  bits and pieces that was fun  purchasing crafty bits again and stroking them hehehehe)
All things to go on the to do list
