First of all may I wish you all a very Happy New Year...Yes I'm a little late but I haven't been in a very good frame of mind...This time of the year isn't my favourite..I find it all rather depressing so I have been in one of those 'cant be bothered' moods.

 Unfortunately the mood has made me be very naughty and I didn't post my DT card for the current ABC challenge - E for Embossing....but here it is now

Its a CAS card made with a Clearly Besotted fact I have cased one of Stephanie's gorgeously simple cards for this and the embossing bit is the piece of kraft cardstock.
I do hope you will join in the challenge and I'll be checking out your creations shortly...
I've been trying to snap out of this mood by having a major tidy up of my craft room trying to find a place for its done I don't want to mess it new years resolution is to try and tidy up as I make..Ha!!  Anyway... I have been in there today having a play...I found this sweet Boofle stamp in a bargain bin at Hobbycraft...

I coloured him with my pencils...I haven't used them for ages and I thought that I would go back to them to try and get the old mojo working again....I think it
Then as I was on a coloured up a Gorjuss Girl that has been lying around for ages...and I wanted to have a try of a new die I had for Christmas..its the only crafty thing I got ...
Its the bow...a fab Die-amics die which will be used a lot me
So now it seems I'm back on track I hope to be around with some more this space!!
Happy Crafting

  5. Hello Jan

    Just spotted your cards on Less is More challenge and then decided to have a browse of your other creations. Love the first card here and that bow die on the Gorjuss is to die for. I want one or should i say i NEED one!

    Am feeling a bit like you too. Since moving here nearly 6 years ago I find Christmas kind of depressing anyway, I miss the family especially the Grandchildren, and this year it is taking a long time for my spirits to lift a bit. Your cards have given me some inspiration so maybe tomorrow I will head in the direction of my craft area and get card making.

    Take care.

    Love Sheila x

  6. All gorgeous cards - wow! All coloured so beautifully. I especially love the Boofle card - adorable. What a great pickup finding the stamp in the bargain bin.
