The year 2011 was so eventful and not in a particularly good way, but a New Year and I am determined to have a positive frame of mind and do all the things I have been putting off doing.

These were made using 'Little One' stamp set from Stampin Up and the sentiment from a set given to me so I don't know the maker.

Here are two of my latest cards. The first one is a thank you card for a wedding invitation received a couple of weeks ago. The card has been sent but you can believe the kind of life I have been having just lately - I sent it without signing.
I have used the Hougie board to make the diamond pattern on the front of the card and the image is from Shoes In Bloom CD from Ooh La La Creations. I made the flower using an SVG cuts file on my cricut machine.
The second card is for a friends birthday, she loves oriental so I think this card is very appropriate.

One can hope.
After an awful scare - I was taken ill in M&S (cannot thank the staff there enough) and having lots of tests at the hospital I have been given the all clear, so we can now carry on.
I love SVG files and using my Cricut machine to cut them out, (more about that later). So I have been busy today making an exploding box for my sister.
I used double sided papers from K & Company - Wild Raspberry Speciality Paper.
I downloaded the exploding box files from SVGCuts, which is a fantastic website, Leo and Mary are so helpful and provide lots of inspiration through tutorials and freebies.

Too much sad happenings around me and the world, what would I do without crafting.
I have had a little me time and I have played. I love Debbi Moores images and I have been playing with her Venetian and Paris Premier (art deco) images.
Here are two of the cards I came up with, because the are shaped, an easel fold and a K card the photography is not brilliant. I must invest in a photo box.
Here it is standing on the table.
This is the easel card and I love this image.

But now I feel ready to start card making and scrapbooking again so here is my attempt at making a card for myself.
I enjoyed making it and it will sit on my shelf for a while, then added to my scrapbook.
You are The Sun
Happiness, Content, Joy.
The meanings for the Sun are fairly simple and consistent.
Young, healthy, new, fresh. The brain is working, things that were muddled come clear, everything falls into place, and everything seems to go your way.
The Sun is ruled by the Sun, of course. This is the light that comes after the long dark night, Apollo to the Moon's Diana. A positive card, it promises you your day in the sun. Glory, gain, triumph, pleasure, truth, success. As the moon symbolized inspiration from the unconscious, from dreams, this card symbolizes discoveries made fully consciousness and wide awake. You have an understanding and enjoyment of science and math, beautifully constructed music, carefully reasoned philosophy. It is a card of intellect, clarity of mind, and feelings of youthful energy.
