Bye for Now

Hi everyone, especially my loyal followers who have taken the trouble to pop into my blog and leave very lovely comments on my cards. I have really appreciated your support.

I have decided that blogging isn't for me. You have to work at it really hard to get it going properly and I really don't have the know how or the time to keep it up.

Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me and helped me along the way (albeit short). I shan't close the blog in case at some time I get my mojo back and I shall keep following your blogs as I love to look at your FABULOUS creations.

So its bye for now from me. Helen xx

A steamy weekend

Hi Everyone

Thought that title may make you sit up and read my blog! Now for the let down lol. Spent Sunday travelling on a steam train (King Edward 1st)from Bristol to Dartmouth. I went with 3 friends and we had a fab day, albeit very long. We had full breakfast on the train going down which was scrummy, every bit, explored Dartmouth and (those who had room ....not me!) lunch. Then a trip up the river Dart sadly in the rain but nevertheless interesting. As soon as we returned to dry land, so did the sun. We strolled back to the train and on the way back had a 3 course dinner, also extremely scrummy washed down with a bottle of merlot. Arrived back at my pad at around 11pm after a really lovely day.

My offering today is a birthday card for a very dear DC buddy. I used My Craft Studio to colour the coffee and cream background papers and the magenta paper is from Papermania. The roses are from my stash and the topper was from a sheet of vintage children from Crafts u Print which I also enlarged through the MCS graphics programme. The other bits and pieces were from my stash. The lace was originally white and as I didn't have any suitable cream lace I dunked it in you do lol.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I do hope you like my card and any comments you wish to leave will be gratefully received. Hells xx
