Back on line at the moment!!

The internet and getting connected this week has been an absolute nightmare! I have nearly thrown my computer out of the window several times. I hate not being able to get on-line, not being able to read emails and check out blogs - you just get so used to it. I cant tell you just how frustrating its been.

Anyway at the moment its working, but then it worked for all of 5 minutes yesterday so who knows how long I may be able to be on-line today.

If there is a computer wizard out there who lives near me let m
e know I may need your services very soon!!

Anyway I have been busy creating for Crafts Beautiful bu
t I cant share the cards with you - sorry. They will be in the May issue. Its a set of stamped cards, using just one stamp set for lots of different occasions. I have also made cards that I think will be in Simply Cards and Papercrafts soon - will let you know.

I have also been busy making cards for Make It Show at Farnborough next Friday, Saturday and Sunday - hope we will see lots of you there. Stop by the stand and say hello and see all the wonderful new Craftwork Cards goodies.

Also made my cards for my workshop in Horley that is fully booked now and Im so looking forward to that - we had such a lovely morning last time. I will show you the cards after the workshop on the 28th.

Merv, my hubby, bought me a heart shaped box of my favourite chocolates the other day - not for Valentines, just because Ive always wanted a heart shaped box and they were my favourite chocolates! Good for the waistline - NOT but still never mind. Anyway Friday nights in our house is Rugby and Wrestling night so I got to play and decorate the heart shaped box - well the chocolates have gone so I thought I would decorate it.

This is it so far. Let me know what you think.

Computer probs must drive you barmy when you depend on it to do your job. The cards are great and the box. My machine is slow at the mo-too many downloads and no external hard drive. Trouble is my financial calculations are usually judged against how much crafty stuff I could buy if I did without the other things. Crafty stuff always wins!
