I'm back..........

...... although I'll be going off again for a couple of weeks soon for our annual holidays. But I want to come on a share a few things I have been very slack with lately, My DT Work.

Things have been very stressful at work and personally, so unfortunately Crafting has had to take a bit of a back seat, but hopefully with a break away from things I have started to get my head sorted.

I have made a few decisions which I may share over heh next few weeks depends how they pan out. The major one being about me and my health. I not the most active person and love food, but of late have started to be really dissatisfied with my energy levels, so I bought a bike and have started cycling, however that's on hold for a bit as I slipped a disc again at work and have been laid up for the last week, But once I'm back I'll hopefully be back to cycling each night!!

Anyway enough of my personal life, onto some cards.

I have really been naughty and not been promoting my DT duties lately and for that I apologise but hopefully I will organise myself better.

Here are a few cards I have been making for Anyone For Anya, there is a great Challenge this week NO PATTERNED PAPER though, what a challenge!!! Head over a check out the inspiration, there is also a fabulous prize from Tracy at Dies to Die for.

So no patterned paper, instead I went for really clean and simple.

I used a new stamp I bought from Dies to Die For, It from The Greeting Farm and she is called PIPER.

She has really got attitude. I coloured her with the New Pens I bought to cheer myself up The Spectrum Noir, they are fabulous!!!
Hope you like!!

I have to go now as my back is starting to hurt and need to stretch.

I need to sort out the wireless thingymabob so I can post from the settee!!

Have a good day and I'll be back tomorrow with some more very late DT bits and pieces

Thanks also to every ones thoughts and wishes, My friend is totally devastated, as you would be but I think to make matters worse there is no definitive reason why her daughter died, I think they may put it down to a Sudden Death, like Cot Death. She was 16 years and totally beautiful. The funeral was last week, hopefully they can start to build their lives back up, which I know from experience will take a lot of time and a lot of pain.
