Hopefully I am back Crafting!


 I can't believe that's its been nearly two months since I have posted any cards, unfortunately I have been suffering from a bad neck and shoulder and have been unable to sit for long at the computer or make any cards.   I have had some Physio and some massage sessions and hopefully its on the mend, although I can't overdo it yet :0(

Not only have I missed crafting I have also missed visiting everyone's blogs and I feel really out of touch, Christmas is also approaching and I need to make my Christmas cards.  I really don't want to have to buy them!!

I have been on a weeks half term holiday from school and decided to play around a little!  I have made one birthday card for a friend, her son is really into golf.  For this I used my Happy Birthday die and cut the golfer and Son with my Silhouette Machine.  Quite simple but she was pleased with the finished result!
 I have also made a couple of Christmas cards also using my Silhouette to cut the Merry Christmas Frame and adding some die cut baubles.


This card was harder to photograph as its a shaker and the acetate was really reflective!

Its been a while since I entered a challenge but I am adding this to the Simon Says "Anything Goes" this week.

Hopefully it wont be another two months before I post again !!

Hi Sally, I was just thinking of you yesterday! So happy to see you posting although I completely understand about the neck and shoulder problem - as it is a problem I have as well, as well as having to rest the eyes! I hope that there will be a new season of health for you as crafting is such a fulfilling hobby!

These are wonderful Sally! Gosh I am so sorry that you have been suffering and I hope you are on the mend. It must be awful to have a constant sore back and neck.
I really think I need to get my Silhouette out because you have made some fabulous cards with it. I totally forgot about it. I wonder if I even remember how to work it! It's been almost 3 years I think since I last used it!
