Cards again

Today's cards are really for my Mum and Dad. Last week Mum asked me for a sympathy card for Monday so did that first.

She also asked me to make a new home card so that when they move they can leave it for the next owners so I did that

I then thought that I really should make a new home card for my parents as well. Ive been putting it off until it was all organised and going through but I'm not sure when that will be. They have a moving date of 3rd February but up to yesterday the buyers hadn't signed the forms even though they are sending people round to measure and design a new kitchen!

Good Play day today

Well this is very unusual but Ive actually made ANOTHER card!!

This was made using the free stamps that came with Cardmaking and Papercraft issue 62.
Definitely a first for me though I bought the magazine this morning to look at over coffee and made a card this afternoon suing the free gift.

Todays Plays

On the card forum there was a challenge to make 2 cards from 1 image. Heres my attempt

Last Cards from last year

On the cardmaking forum we have a monthly competition which I try to enter as it gives me inspiration. Now december is obviously a quiet month because everyone is rather busy with christmas but I was thrilled to bits to find my card had been voted into a winning place for the first time in a year. I was even more amazed and leaping up and down when I realised I actually had all 3 entered cards placed and was 2nd, 3rd, and 4th!!!!!

Happy New Year

Yeah I know its a bit late and all that but hey I'm finally back!!
So an update on me....

Christmas was really good and very exhausting. In fact its taken me until now to recover but hopefully finally I'm re-joining the world and feeling good :-)

Ive been back to weight watchers and put on 5lb over Christmas. This week lost .5lb which I'm a little grumpy about as I really followed the plan and was very good but at least its a loss not a gain.

I am planning to make cards today if I ever get away from the computer, feeling all enthusiastic and want to play so fingers crossed my brain wont give up on me.

Life could get interesting over the next few weeks as my parents might well be moving at the beginning of February. They've had their house on the market for over a year but haven't been able to do much packing and sorting because if it didn't sell they needed the stuff but if it did sell they have loads to get rid of as they downsize into a bungalow. When I say downsize I mean a bungalow large enough for 2 cars, camper van, 6 motorbike (vintage) Dads workshop including lathe, Dads clock workshop with loads of clocks and stuff. Mum gets to keep her beading and embroidery in the house though lol.
Anyway they've suddenly got a sold sign and are trying to pack,sort,throw out, tidy and all that so I'm going to be spending a lot of time helping. Due to the ME I cant do a lot of lifting and packing but I can bring things to my flat to store and make brews on moving day etc etc

I think that's about it for now but look out I might actually put some cards up soon!!
