Hi WOYWWers,

I am at last beginning to feel that I am getting back into things. I have a few birthdays coming up in the family so that has spurred me into action. Over the past few weeks I have sat at my desk many times and tried to start a project, but almost always have given up after hitting the much feared "crafter's block" so I began this project without much expectation that I would actually end up with a finished result that I was reasonably pleased with. This time, however, things actually went roughly to plan and this is what I have ended up with....

So I was reasonably happy with this one and I think it makes the grade for my Aunt's birthday at the end of this month. Below is a shot of my desk mid construction so to speak. Who can spot my latest purchase? or at least the extra pieces for it? Haven't tested it out properly yet, but I have several more cards to make over the next few days so I will give it an outing then.

Creative juices are flowing a bit today. I have decided I am totally fed up with peeloffs when it comes to sentiments on cards. I have a few sentiment stamps, but am bored with stamping and then just cutting them out on a rectangle. I have a cuttlebug, but can't afford lots of nesties dies at the moment, so I am off to concoct something on my cutting machine. I am thinking of making a template sheet containing lots of sentiments in different fonts and lots of label shape cut outs so I can mix and match as suits. If anyone is interested I will let you know how it goes.

I am sure that anyone reading this will already know about Julia's fantastic Wednesday Wonderland that is WOYWW, and will know haow to find her blog here, but just in case you have found me by accident...go check out The Stamping Ground and join in the fun.
