Hi everyone, sorry to have been missing for a while but it's been a bit busy and then there was CRETE!!! Lovely restful holiday in a beautiful villa with good food, wine and a fabulous view!

I have been crafting since I got back as July and August are very busy birthday wise! Too add to it my DH has decided to insulate my craft room and re configure it.It is basically the cupboard under our front steps (victorian town house ) and can be cold in the winter and hot in the summer. The amount of craft stuff that came out of a space 7' x 3' is amazing.I am now crafting on the end of my dining table and we have utilised old bookcases that we were chucking out to hold some of the stuff!

oh dear!

behind sitting room door!

Dining room/ craft room stuffed to the gills!

                                                      Back to my latest cards:

                      This is for my friends daughter who has just given birth to baby Maya

We had a great college reunion on Saturday to celebrate the retirement of the most amazing reprographics man, Eddie. It was great to see so many old friends and colleagues from the last 25 years! I made this card in craft artist using a photo of Eddie and added a little decoupage.

Another craft artist card for a betting man!

Another male card using SU Wetlands stamp and SU Hardwood stamp

Finally a flower pot card for my friend Angela in Brixham with whom we are going to stay in a couple of weeks

Once again sorry for my lack of commenting, we are off to Portsmouth and the IOW with Charlie and co tomorrow and hope this lovely weather continues!

Hi Val - what an amazing array of cards. They are all lovely and the fishing one is fab. Bet he really loved it. For some reason your first three photos aren't showing (the ones before the cards).........not sure why? Hope you have a wonderful time in the IOW - think you can almost be guaranteed on the weather front. Very hot here today but there is a breeze thank goodness.
