Something a bit different from me

today, thought I'd try my hand at making a couple of bracelets for a change, have had the stuff for ages but never got round to doing it, OH tends to make them instead

Must say I did enjoy making them so I might do some more, what do you think???

A quickie card.........

Good evening folks, it turned out to be a lovely day here, have had my niece & nephew stay for a few days so have been ultra busy with them, plenty of walks with the dogs, going to the park & we took them crabbing yesterday & they loved it!!

My sister came to pick them up this afternoon & asked me if I could make her a card for a friend at work, so I 'threw' this together lol, her name is pronounced Joanne but its an unusual spelling

Not had any time to find out if it fits any challenges but there's always my next card!

New Baby Girl Card

After a few more ups & downs with my health, I'm starting to feel somewhat 'normal' again, whatever that is, lol

Its been so long since I've done any crafting that I cant remember where my cardstock is from, I think its from the Papertrie shop in Scotland. Sentiment is computer generated.

I really hope to be back in blogland more often & I'm going to try & enter some challenges!!

See you soon xx
