Here at last with a card :)

Well here I am "at last" with a card :) I just decided to get out my crafty stuff and play and this is what I came up with.
I just used up some left over card stock and embossed it with my "new swiss dots" folder, which I had been wanting forever!!!! and check out my new nestabilities too :) {scalloped circles}. The smaller scalloped circle is punched from stampin up scallop punch which my friend kindly let me use. The sentiment is a fabric ribbon from Me and my big ideas. To finish I added a chipboard flower with a brad and some brown ric rac.
Have a fantastic weekend :)

Another "update"

Hi everyone :) hope you are all well. I have decided to step down from the design team, A spoonful of sugar. I gave it a lot of thought and I feel at the moment I cant commit to it and would rather someone else got a chance to maybe take my place.
I thoroughly enjoyed being part of the team, and everyone in the team is lovely and so friendly, but with everything that has being going on in my life lately I didn't think it was fair of me to still be a design team member but not producing any cards for them.
I will of course join in their weekly challenges when I get back on track :)
So just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to Debbie and Nikki and all of the team for having me on board.
I am in the process of tidying my "VERY MESSY" craft room at the moment, shifting furniture around and throwing away all the tiny pieces of left overs that we can never seem to bin {lol}
so hopefully it will be sitting "pretty" soon!! :)
Thats all I have to update at present, be back soooooooooooon :)
hugzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz xx

Popping in to say "hi"

Just popping in to say hi and to thank each and everyone of you for your kind sympathy messages, I appreciate each and every one of them. I went round a few of your blogs to say thank you but some blogs I couldn't seem to get to comment. My wireless router plays me up something terrible and I have to keep turning on/off my computer :(
My Grandad was buried last saturday and it was a very very sad day for me and my family, he was such a character and well loved. There was a piper at the graveyard which was very sad but was something that my Grandad wanted.
I am trying to keep myself busy so I am helping out in a local craft shop for a few hours on a thursday and I started today. I made 2 cards for the girl im working for and they were the first 2 cards I have made in few months, so that should help me get back into the swing of things.
Let me know what you think of my new look blog?? the backgrounds are free if you click on the button, top left hand corner, it will bring you directly to the link. I couldn't decide which one I wanted there is so many to choose from.
Take care and I'll be back soon

Sad news

I have very sad news to share, my Grandfather passed away very suddenly on Sunday evening. I still cant believe it, he meant so much to me and I was very close to him.
I travel to Limerick this week to his funeral {thats where he is from and also my mum}.
My grandfather had travelled up on saturday to stay with my mum for a few weeks as he wasn't feeling too well and on the sunday night on his way to bed he collapsed and died.
I loved him very much and im going to miss him dearly.
