Happy Easter every one - well I dont know about you's but i am loving the Craft Sales this weekend - Had my warning off hubby not to buy out Create and Craft lol x I must admit I have gone a bit mad - like Mad March hare - and had a spending spree stocking up as I wont be able to afford things shortly. Redundancy looms closer.

Welcome to the Secret Rose Garden: First Card Giveaway! :o): Good Evening Everyone I hope the weather hasn't spoiled your weekend!.. Some have had snow, some have had rain... hard to believe i...
Ive been playing with my Spectrum noirs again. I must say I get great enjoyment out of them as it is very relaxing and soothing to sit and colour in a picture. I have also had a play around with my spritzers. I have had them for ages and just didn't know what to do so I made a blank popup box and spritzered it. I will post a picture when I have completed it. Here are a couple of cards I have made - On the first card I have using my spectrum noirs on a Sherri Baldy digi stamp and sprinters on the heart. On the second card I have used shapes cut out using my spellbinders and finished off with some embellishments. the third card is a combination of Sherri Baldy stamp coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and Crafters Companion Desire die, and Tom Holts Distressed ink.

Well Ive had a bit of an eventful week and can proudly pat myself on the back. This morning I managed to walk to the doctors and back on my own - wohoo to me. I was invited to an Craft open day at the Howdon Library and it was good - I enjoyed the company and again managed it by myself. I learnt how to do a waterfall card and put my own inspirations to work and produced this :

Been playing with Spectrum Noir pens again .....

Craft Group

Afternoon - Ive had quite a week, finished my assertiveness course and found out about a little craft group near me, so popped along to see what went on and if there was room for one more. The ladies are lovely and I look forward to sitting with them and learning new skills as well as pass on some of the things I have learnt, which wont be much considering they have been going for 16 years - eekk : ) x

Time to be positive

Well today I decided it is time I tried to be more positive and leave the dark places behind me. I have been inspired and want to move forward with my crafting and instead of just doing it intermittently to become a more avid crafter. Trouble is I get easily sidetracked lol. I start off looking for inspiration and have ideas in my head, then go looking for what I need i.e tools and supplies and then see something else and before I know it the day has gone. Well (she says to herself) this has got to stop, I have to focus on the job at hand - says she trying to convince herself this will happen. hahaha. Time will tell if I have succeeded in this quest :).
