Washing, washing & more washing!!!.....

Hi all, I hope you are happy & well?!
Back from Tenerife where the weather has been hot, sunny & fab, to.........rain & cold!!! Well can't say I expected anything less lol. I remember saying I had a mountain of ironing before I went away, but you should see it now. I'm sure I didn't pack as much as I came back with!

Anyway, I haven't touched a computer for the last two weeks so I think I might have a bit to catch up with, hopefully I can get round to visiting everyone over the weekend & see what fab things you've been doing. In the meantime I can show you a few cards I made a while back.

I was contacted by docrafts & asked, if I was sent some goodies, could I make a few cards up so as they could be put into the next Creativity magazine, under the 'online talent spot' section. They sent the goodies, I made the cards, hey presto!

The original card which Clare 'spotted' was made for my Mom & Dad. I took a copy of the mag & gave it to my Mom today, of which she thought it was fab that I was in the mag, but really excited that it was her card in
Here are each of the cards I made,

All made with Anita's Classic Black Christmas papers.
Very yummy!!!

I also had a surprise whilst doing a bit of shopping in Asda yesterday when I got back. I tend not to look down the magazine aisle, as the craft mags have a strange habit of jumping into my trolley.....strange but true!!!.......hehe. Anyway, thought I'd have a peek, picked up the latest issue (October) of Cardmaking & Papercraft & spotted two cards on the front made by the very lovely & talented Alex, with the Kerry jo images. My response a verbal "oooooh", which was probably a lil louder than should have been judging by the look on the man walking past at the (obviously not a crafter...) So of course the mag flew into my trolley!

Alex has made five beautiful cards, here they are,
Now all I need to do is get back into my crafting & blogging, that is after the ironing has been
See you soon,

Hi Kerrie
Nice to see you back after your lovely holiday. Do what i do with my ironing. find a nice lady that likes to iron and pay her. my neghbour loves ironing and charges £10 for 60 send the box over in the morning and it comes back the following day. Gives me a lot more time to craft.
