On a positive note - this creative drought has not impacted my ability or inclination to do crafty-shopping (yes, surprise surprise!) lol!
I've also been trying to change my blog template - not to one of those offered by blogger - but to one supposedly compatible with blogger - but no success - I get so far with all the code right to the point of saving it then it seems I'm going to lose lots of the links, pics etc that I already have. So I guess I'm stuck with this format! C'est la vie!
So I guess I would just like to say please check back on my blog regularly as I hope to be adding lots of new posts soon!
What's that I see on the horizon?? Could it be my inspiration creeping back into the room?
Thanks again to everyone for their kind feedback on my blog so far!

It was all the toys out for this one - Cuttlebug, new nestabilities, curvy edge scissors and cropadile. Fun Fun Fun!

Is it to do with the constant chatter of a 3 year old who should be sleeping but says "Mummy, I not tired!" when she clearly is shattered!
Ah.. the challenges!
So this is all I've come up with. This was a stamped image from a PIF I was lucky to win. I coloured it using Marvy Le Plume II pens and a water brush (just for a change!). The papers (which I thought I would love and now I'm not too sure about) are the new Berry Sweet range from K&Co. I think they will grow on me.. maybe, unlike this card, I should use them by applying the "less is more" guideline!
I thought this little guy was cute - he would probably look good on a baby card.

I haven't posted anything new in ages! And I seem to have lost my mojo. Why does this happen? I think mine goes when I know I have cards to make for people rather than when I have time just to do my own thing - does that make sense? You would think that when you have an idea of what you need to do it would be easier! but it's not! (well not for me any way).
So for this one I went back to the approach that usually helps me out when this happens - pick the paper and be inspired by it. It worked a wee bit but I'm not really all that happy!

I'm pleased to have picked three lucky winners at random (all the entries were numbered in the order they were left and my hubby picked three numbers).
1. Suzanne (PIF candy and Sizzix die)
So congratulations ladies and I'll get busy putting the candies together! Please email me with your addresses - firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to everyone for taking part!

I have been so lucky! This is just the tip of the iceberg for blog candy that I have received recently!
So now I'm very pleased to say it's my turn! I would like to offer blog candy to three lucky bloggers - rather than do the normal "first three to reply" I would like to change it slightly! It's my birthday coming up at the begining of April and, as it's a special one for me I would like to combine this PIF candy with a birthday give away!
** This post will stay at the top of my blog until 6th April so please scroll down to see any new entries! ***
I propose to draw 3 lucky candy winners from all the names who enter. I'll do this on Sunday 6th April (the day after my birthday!)!
If you would like to enter please reply to this post - also include in your reply if you have a die cutter that takes sizzix original dies - I have a brand new large red die - Tags Scallop Combo - which I will include in the candy for the first entry chosen who does have a die cutter.
I hope this all makes sense!
Good luck! xxx
