Broken Promises

Once again I did not manage to post weekly!..not even monthly!.its been well over 6 months!..I just don't seem to have had the time or made the time?.life is busy and lots going on with some big changes on the way. I started working part time as of 3 weeks ago. I haven't got a routine as yet or fully adjusted to having an extra 2 days a week although I'm sure I will:-)The plan, for now, is to post when I can and not make promises that I can't keep.

I have made a quite a few cards since I last posted as you can imagine. Including finishing the card for my sister's birthday in August!!(sneaky peak in my last post way back in June last year!),my sister in laws birthday, a baby card for twins (I have only ever made one baby card before.)and quite a few others, including HB's birthday,our Wedding Anniversary,Christmas cards! it certainly has been a while.

I'm also in a phase of wanting to try something different; some mixed media and I plan to start some art journaling, I've started small with ATC's.I've made some random ones and some sets of four(three and one for the host) for a few ATC Swaps that I've taken part in recently. I have really enjoyed making these.I have received some amazing mini works of art back as a result.will post some soon when I've finally uploaded the photos from my camera!

Today I've posted a card made some time ago for an elderly friend of ours.I used Heartfelt Creations Enchanted Mums paper pad and die set. I went a bit gem crazy, she often buys me crafty stash many of them I've used on the card including the peel offs, gems and the pretty pearl beads.I do love dragonflies and had a great time decorating them.   

I have finally made it and wrote a post, hopefully, this the start of more regular updates. I've got lots to share and I am looking forward to getting back in touch with fellow bloggers.Thanks for visiting, I hope you are having a good week and I hope to post again soon.crafty hugs Andrea x
