Have been AWOL, and a blog award!

Hi all, I've been a very bad blogger and neglected things this week.  To be honest, after a month of blogging addiction, my humble dwelling looked very neglected and needed a bit of tidying up, and I thought I better show willing and clean up a bit.  So crafting and internet have had to take a back seat.  I think also that finally having made enough Christmas cards for this year the momentum dropped a bit, but I am getting round to looking at all the blog entries I've missed of everyone's this last've all been busy! lol.

Anyway, a lovely surprise when I logged in today, to find that a smashing chap, Kevin (McCrafty), has passed on a blog award to me!  Thanks a lot to Kevin, that's really cheered me.  I don't yet know how to pick up the award so hopefully it will appear here very soon.  I also have Copic Creations blinkie to display when that finally comes through, both should jazz up my blog a bit.

These are a couple of cards I made for a couple of sweet lovely crafting friends who should already have received them so it's safe to show them now.  I used another favourite image, Wrapped Up Tilda (which is an image first sent to me by one of the girls I made these for), and I positioned her on Marianne die cuts (sent to me by the other friend). 

Hope you are all keeping warm and cosy in this cold snap.

Happy crafting!

Lol Janette, take a deep breath! If that doesnt work, take a double gin & tonic, he he. I don't even know if the shopping delivery will make it through this week, so Christmas lunch might end up being pasta bake! I am pretty much ready for Christmas as I'm not planning much, just a quiet time. Main thing was getting my cards made in time, but that's done now so bring on the mince pies :) :) :)

Gorgeous cards as always Carole!! I completely understand about having to step away every now and hubby affectionately calls my craft room the "craft cave" because he swears I hibernate in there! LOL!!
