Busy, busy, busy!

Can't believe it's been over a month since I last blogged - (chant whilst tapping forehead - "must blog more, must blog more, must blog more").  Alot's happened over the last month.  Had a lovely day at a friend's wedding recently; it was nice to get all dressed up and my girls looked absolutely beautiful (if I do say so myself!).

I am also now a published card designer!  I e-mailed a pic of a quick card I made using a stamp that was a free gift in a previous issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft and it was published on the letters page of the June issue.  (This wasn't one of my 'showcase' cards by any stretch of the imagination but it was one of the quickest I've made - the cute little stamped images are so quick to colour.)

The main reason for the lack of posts has been because I have been busy card and candle making for summer fayres.  My crafting bud Lisa and I did our first summer fayre at her boy's school and we were asked to do a table at a fund raising event the following day.  We didn't make a fortune but we had fun and we all have to start somewhere!  I've just received my new business cards and labels from Vistaprint so am hoping to do more fayres and events throughout the year.  (Next one is 12 June so when I'm feeling better - full of cold at mo - I need to get cracking with some father's day cards.)
