Well after a very busy weekend i managed to get three CC challenges completed which i am please about. I did a sketch layout by the lovely Kerryn, a card sketch by Deanne which had to also be a non-Christmas decorated Christmas card!!! the only reference to Christmas could be some words to a carol and the Layout had to be very colourful, think i achieved that one!. The third challenge, by Tracy, could only contain the colour white with a hint of silver & had to be a black & white pic. I dug out a picture of me & sister Helen as toddlers & for Kerryn's challenge i decided to do a funny layout of Mum & Dad. It is Mum's Anniversary on Thursday & i am trying to think happy thoughts & have some happy memories instead of reliving all of the trauma of last year. All in all i enjoyed this month's cybercrop, i have not scrapped for months & although the layout took hours to do i think i am getting my mojo back!, roll on January CC!!!
I am 41 years young & i live with my 2 gorgeous furbabies, Bert & Simone, my beautiful feral cat Blackie, my 2 tortoises Pike & Audrey & my rescued quail Mrs.Sloecombe. My other loves in life are anything involving animals, cardmaking & crafting.
I have always loved animals and am proud to be VEGETARIAN. I support a lot of animal charities & I have a back yard full of wildlife which i feed including birds, hedgehogs & foxes. I have weaned & looked after baby hedgies, squirrels & foxes for the local wildlife & rescue center which i absolutely loved.
I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis 8 years ago & i also have other health problems. I had to give up my job which was really hard but my Sister introduced me to the wonderful world of crafting & I became totally addicted!!!. My absolute favorite is stamping & card making but I love experimenting with different mediums & trying out new things.
I would like to dedicate my blog to my beautiful mum who I lost on 17th December 08. She was my best friend & it was Mum who asked my Sister to encourage me to start crafting. I love & miss her every day.
Thank you for visiting my blog xxx
