It's been a long time

It has been a very long time since I last blogged and if I am honest I really miss my little blog!
Ruby is now nearly 3 and a year or so has passed since I have really sat down and crafted properly.
Ruby is due to start nursery at Christmas and I really want to get back into what I love doing because I miss it soo much!
I am starting simple and trying to make cards that fit into the time that I have and that means nothing too fussy!  Ruby and a full time job do not leave much time to spare.  I also forgot to mention Martin who obviously takes up my time.
Over the last couple of weeks I have started to make cards for family birthdays and I am making the most of having a PC at home until my brother's little office is sorted and he will want it back.  I ate blogging from my phone or ipad because it is so frustrating!
Here is a card that I made for my Auntie's Mum.

I have found some old Christmas cards and I thought this image would fit perfect cut to size for the card.  The ribbon is from my stash and is probably years old!

I coloured the image with my Promarkers but I have no idea of the colour combos because it has been so long since I coloured that I just made them up as I went along, but I am really happy with the result.

The pictures are pretty poor but I am very out of practice.  My photo subject lately is my little model Ruby and any photo is a good photo with her.  These are not great but I will try to get better.

I really do hope to start blogging more often, but I just don't want to get too caught up in trying to blog at certain times.  I have just decided to blog when I can and try to visit my favourite blogs and any new ones which I may have missed in my time away!  I have been really stressed and anxious lately so I figured the perfect way to de-stress was to craft!
Hopefully I will be back soon with another post!

Late Happy New Year

I hope everyone have a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year!  I had a lovely quiet Christmas with my family and Ruby who had a lovely time opening her presents, but she became bored after 10 minutes!!
No guesses what my New Years Resolution will be & that will be to get back into my crafting!  I am in the process of sorting my craft cupboards to get some order to them and clear out some of the stuff I don't & won't use.
I have already done some colouring this evening so watch this space (although I am not overly happy with my colouring so don't know if I will need more practice before I feel happy to blog them!)
Anyway, on 29th November Ruby celebrated her 1st birthday!  How time just flies by ;-(
I thought I would share some pictures from her birthday and the little tea party I had for her at my home.  Here she is the morning of her birthday in her new ball pit

All dressed ready to go out with Mummy & Daddy.  We went to see Father Christmas and have decided that as her birthday is so close to Christmas this would something we would do on her birthday!

Little Thank You Favours I had  made for her party guests

Party bags, cake and favours (excuse the unfinished paintwork in the kitchen, but we had a big rush to get the house finished for her party so the kitchen still needed to be tiled and painted - its all done now though!)

Birthday girl enjoying all the attention

I am off to finish sorting my cupboards and try to make a few cards this weekend so I can blog next week!  I am feeling very determined to organise myself and make my cards again!
See you soon,

Hello to the people that still follow me!
I know its been soo long since I last blogged, but since having Ruby my life has changed so much. Im back at work full time and its really hard to find time to do my favourite hobby of crafting. Im having lots of work done on my home and I hope it will be finished very son so I cam dust off my stamps and get creative again soon!

For now heres a picture of my whole entire world..... Ruby!

2 In 2 weeks on 29th November she will be 1 and what an amazing year its been with her here. I cant imagine how life was without here. Hopefully I will be back with some Christmas crafting very soon!

Bye for now!

I am still here crafting

Hi to anyone that is still following and dropping by to see me. I know that my blogging habits are pretty abysmal really but Ruby and full time work just doesnt leave much time for me :-(

I wouldn't change it for the world and I cant wait till my little lady can share my crafting hobby with me.

Ruby is fully weaned and now sits up on her own although she is still quite dinky compare to others.   

Here is a quick card I made for my Aunties birthday tomorrow.  Very simple with minimal embellishments and I ♥ it!!!

A close up of my Iimage and I am very pleased with my colouring even though I am rusty!
   Also below this pic is a pic of my little lady. By for now as im struggling to upload from my phone xxx

Quick Hello

I just thought I would log on because I really haven't been on here much at all.  I keep dropping by my favourite blogs but I just don't seem to have time to upload.  I have been crafting when I can, but I have been preparing to go back to work.  I only have 2 weeks maternity leave left.
I am really nervous about going back and its been playing on my mind about leaving Ruby because I really don't want to.  After spending all my time with her I think it will be a really tough first few weeks back at work for me.
Anyway, I have no card to show you because I haven't kept up with my photos when I have made them recently but here is a picture of my little family yesterday.
Unfortunately Martin has lost both his Nans in the last few weeks and yesterday was the funeral of his Nan who passed away a week ago.  It was a sad and upsetting day but we came home and spent the day with little Ruby.
Right I am off to do some colouring as I have lots of Fathers Day orders before I go back to work.

New Baby


I am back with a New Baby card that I made for my Cousin who had her little girl over the weekend.  We are going through a baby boom in my family at the moment because my Sister is expecting her 3rd baby in July along with another of my Cousins - all girls too so they are definitely going to rule this family!

Ironically, my Cousin called her baby Evie Polly which is also the name my Sister has picked for her little girl but she says that she won't change it, so it looks like there will be 2 Evies'

Anyway, I bought some new papers yesterday when I went shopping with my Mum and they are from the Bundle of Joy Collection from Kaiser Craft - they are gorgeous and I have bought extra pages for Ruby's scrapbook!

I used my all time favourite Magnolia baby stamp which goes perfectly with these papers.  I also treated myself to some Promarkers so I tried a different colour combination to get this vintage pink which I just love.

I have added some lovely ribbon with "Congratulations" running through it along with a blingy slider.  The lace is from my stash along with the button and flower. 

You can't really see it very well from the picture but I have stamped Evie Polly into the banner on the paper to make my own sentiment.  The cute little feet are punched from a Woodware punch that I have had for a while.

I have found a couple of challenges to enter my card into this week and they are: -

Right I better dash because poor little Ruby has a chest infection so isn't very well at all today.  I have taken her to the Doctors and she is on antibiotics but she is a grumpy lady today!
