Halfway through the holidays

Can you believe it we're halfway through the holidays already!! None of my good intentions for these six weeks have been realised...yet! There's still three weeks to go but, I can say, it's not looking very good.. Filling the freezer with meals for the winter, trying to make "different" types of bread and finishing the curtains for Eilidh's bedroom (which have been waiting for 2 years) just haven't happened.
What have I been doing? cutting allsorts on my Cricut, learning about, designing and writing my blog and making a concerted effort to get on with some crafting as well as playing with my new found toys, Promarkers. I finished this today which I made for the challenge at which this week is black,white and pink. I'll also give it a go in and
Hope everyone's well and have a great week whatever you're up to. Xx

Very First Post

Well here goes with my very first post so I thought I'd show you a couple of things I did yesterday. As I said, I've just discovered digital stamps and Promarkers, which I love, although I'm still getting the hang of them and, although my partner would say I had plenty of "crayons" as he calls them, I still don't feel I enough colours to shade properly.
The coffee cups are digital stamps from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff or she's also known on her other website  The set is called Coffee Talk and all of the papers in these photos are freebies from issue 74 of Simply Cards and Paercraft from Funky Hand. I have also got some fab digital stamps from Mo Manning and the last photo is one of hers that I've coloured but I haven't done anything with.


Sorry about the shaky camera here!!
