So, I keep promising myself

....that I have to update my blog but then time just runs and runs…and now it’s almost 3 months since I’ve posted.

But again, it’s been a while since I’ve managed to get any craft done.

I’m on holidays at the moment and have felt inspired a little again. Apart from the rush of realising that my Bakers Dozen is far behind – and from the emails I’ve received since chrissy, it seems I’m not the only one – I also decided that a few challenges might help pull me out of my rut. Will try and get some sneak peaks of my B.dozen pages up during the next week.

I’m entering this card in the Oh Alice challenge blog and the theme this week is mainly Red or White. She’s so cute and although I’ve had a bit of a hiatus as far as my crafting goes, it hasn’t stopped me buying things like this little cutie.

This next card is for the Copic Challenge blog and the theme is Anything New. I had just bought this image from Mo’s when I saw this challenge, so she is my anything new.

Mad for Markers current challenge is all about Australia Day and the theme is either Red White and Blue or Green and Yellow.

This card is an identical layout to the one above and it's the first time I've used this cute little guy. This is for the Simon Says challenge blog. The challenge at the moment is a bingo card that has 9 squares and you choose 3 of the squares in a line to use on your card. I've chosen the row that is die cuts, embossing and ribbon. Ive used string instead of ribbon so hope this is Ok. The die and stamp I mounted the sentiment on is from Tickled Pink stamps and I love it - a new fave.

These next few are a couple of things I made last month. This shaker card I made in a class that Mandy-Lee did at Chandon Craft. I did a few classes with Mandy there last year and the last one was on using copic images on candles.

These next four are Christmas cards I made and they are the only Christmas cards I made this year, and they are still sitting in my room cause I'm such a slacker that I didn't make any more or send any out this year. I do, however, have every intention of making it up to everyone next year....it is the thought that counts, isn't it?
These first two I've used images from Sassy Cheryls. I got a few cuties from here but this is all I managed to use.

These next 2 have images I can't remember if I got from Tickled Pink Stamps or All That Scraps, but again only used a few of the images.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. Will be back soon with some more things to share.

Wow Ros what a lovely post with so many absolutely gorgeous cards to share.
I love how you add a little dimension to the images, those spots really pop off the card.
