At Last A Card

Sorry folks for not being around much lately but between blogger problems and real life getting in the way I've just not had time to craft or do much blogging to be honest.I've removed my playlist for now and fingers crossed it seems ok.The last few weeks of the school holiday have just gone by in a flash.Usually I'm a homebird but with my concerts,a hen night,a birthday party,and Louis also went to a couple of birthday parties,I've not had much time to think let alone craft.Keeping a 5 year old occupied all day is very tiring...lol and he gets to stay up a bit later because it's the holidays,so by time he goes to bed,I'm not that far behind him as I'm shattered...lol.Old age etc etc.I've also been put on antihistamine tablets which are supposed to be non drowsy,but I'm absolutely shattered on them too.So a mix of it all and I'm done in.
I did have some commissions to do too but can't share them just now apart from one.They were a real labour of love and each one took days to do because I didn't have much crafty time and
because they were to be special cards.One was a wedding card for the bride from her mum,one was an anniversary card for my pal Stu to give to his friends and the other was a silver wedding anniversary card for a girl I go to Body Combat and Body Pump with from me.They are all along a similar line so I'm sure you'll get the idea...lol.

I had blogging problems too and removed my playlist which seemed to do the trick, so I guess that must have been the cause ;o(

Hi Cass, lovely to see your comments and glad you've managed to get on and to sort your playlist/blogger probs, it doesn't take much to upset it these days! Sounds like you've had an ultra busy time lately and I can imagine those anti-histamines don't help at all, hopefully once you get used to them, it'll be ok. Love the piccie of Louis, I'm sure that must be new, he's such a handsome lad and has your curls I see :). Your card is so beautiful and very, very elegant, I love the colours and design, absolute perfection. Hope you have a great weekend when you get to it. Chris xx
