Hello Blogland....... long time no see ....

.... well it certainly has been a while since I visited my neglected oasis, so here I am with a couple of cards to show you that I made over the weekend.  I've spent the past four days in my craft room trying to get some of  my Art coursework done, I've got until the end of this month to finish everything (and blimey have I got so much left to do) then I'll get 6 weeks to prep for my exam....omg!! lil ole me sitting an exam, crikey, last exam I took was 1989 ..... pmsl..

Anyways, as I said been getting crafty and created not one but two cards.  For the card below I used The Greeting Farm, Lolli Anya and coloured her with Copics and added a touch of Glamour Dust for that all important girly sparkle.  The papers are Stampin Up. Spellbinders tags,  Martha Stewart Border Punch.  and Nesties.  available from the lovely Tracy over at Dies To Die For.

Here's a 40th Anniversary card using papers from Shabby Princess "Amore" freebie download.  I've had these set of Crafters Companion stamps for months and only opened them this weekend, oh the!!  Again I've coloured the image with Copics available from Dies To Die For.  The swirly hearts were cut with my Cricut using the Straight From The Nest cartridge.

Inside the card more swirly hearts and box.

I am hoping to keep on track with making cards, forgotten how enjoyable it can be.  I hope all my lovely blogging buddies are keeping well.  I'm not going to make any promises but I will do my best to try and visit as many of you lovely lot as soon as I can.

Lots of luv 'n' crafty hugs

Gorgeous! Nice to see you back - HUGE wishes of GOOD LUCK for your art exam. I did the GCSE at school and found that hard, but the A-Level I would have loved to have done! I dont envy you though - its so stressful trying to come up with new ideas and creativeness esp when your given time limits!
