It feels like a lifetime since I did any crafting, I'm busy getting ready for a massive event in London next year so I'm up in central London quite a lot of the time, by the time I get home I just want to do nothing (apart from have a glass of vino.....lol).
I sat by the Tower of London and had my lunch today, that made a nice change. Life is busy at the moment but I managed to spend a lovely weekend in Ireland last week. I was at a friends wedding in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, such a pretty area, the weather wasn't great but it didn't spoil the day.
Well, it's a bank holiday weekend this weekend so with a bit of luck I'll have something crafty to post next time.............:)

This week on the Stamp Man Challenge blog they are having a Poppy Challenge to help the lovely Janet and her husband raise money for the Poppy Appeal 2011. I had made a card last week to send to Janet for the Poppy Appeal and so I was delighted to see this challenge and even more delighted that I could enter. I have very little time for anything other than work at the moment and didn't think I would be entering any challenges for a while.
My card is quite simple, the stamp is from the Kadoodle Floribundi collection and is coloured with Promarkers.
Thank you for taking the time to look.

Is the challenge on Try It On Tuesday this week. I was invited to be a guest designer so I made my card using some "Old" Fimo ivy leaves that I made a couple of years ago, I knew they would come in useful one day! The music stamp is one of the first stamps I bought when I started crafting, I had to make a card for a piano teacher, I cringe when I think about what it looked like now.....lol!
The "New" is the Gorjuss Girls stamp which I bought over at the Craft Barn last month when I was attending a class on Copics and the little Candi buttons.
This weeks sponsors are One Stop Card Crafts
Thanks to all the inspiration I find on all the lovely blogs I follow, I'm getting a bit more confident about card making.
Thank you to all who leave comments on my work, I really appreciate them all.
