Sunday .................

Well I have spent most of the weekend pushing paper around and getting nowhere slowly!
So I thought I would give up on the Layouts for a while and make some simple cards for the shop
I came across the Papertake Challenge Blog and thought I would play!
A nice challenge to use red on a card - so I have made a batch of the above - and just in time as they have a new challenge up tomorrow.

Right - Back to the clipboard that I am trying to do for someone at work.

Oh - and as for the eggs .......... I will try to remember to take my camera into work tomorrow so that you can see them in all their glory ......... PMSL

Template Challenge

Crikey - I have actually completed a challenge for the Just Bex Forum!
Sue set one of her fabulous template challenges so I thought I would use it to make up a set of Valentines cards for the shops - only about another 94 to do .........
AND If I hadb't been such a lazy cow today I may have achieved a bit more.
I didn't wake up till 10.30 which is not like me .......... and then by 2 o clock I was back in bed till 6! What a lazy moo, but I guess I needed to catch up on some sleep. Just hope I sleep tonight now as I am wide awake now!
Right - off to watch TV and make some more cards x

I am a serious crafter ............

Not!!!! I have a long list of LO's and cards I wamt to make.
I have a long list of fab challenges from various blogs and forums.
And instead I am about to tackle 8 of these disgusting eggs.
I HATE Styrofoam, I hate eggs, I hate cheap and tacky embellishments
But yes, this is my latest project for work to turn these 8 nasty eggs into something stunning to encourage people to buy them - I think we only have about 850 of them to sell!

I will report back later this afternoon with some very tacky eggs!

Love Bex (The serious crafter!)

Happy New Year to you all!

Firstly I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Year.
Thankyou for all you kind comments - I had a lovely Xmas at my sisters with the family.
Too much food, too much drink & loads of fun - it all went too quickly though!
New Year I worked through but am enjoying it still so that was fine by me - I have never been one to do much New Year.

So now we are in 2008 and I have a long list of things I want to achieve this year and I will let you know as and when I achieve them!
One of them is to actually be a better blogger and participate more in the forum.
I thought I would ease myself in gently with a new challenge called "Shape Shifters"!
I'll see how it goes on the forum and see if it is something we can do regularly to helps us all make the cards we need.
So basically a simple guide of what shapes have to appear on your card, and how many times ........... you can add any embellishments etc you like on top of the shapes.
So the shapes ..........

And my very simple effort - I am feeling simple x

If you would like to pop aling and join in you can find us at Just Bex Forum

So back to the housework and boring jobs and I will aim to be around returning comments a lot more in 2008 xx

Love n Hugs
