A Belated Update

It's been too long since I updated this, so I'm here with an explanation of what's been happening in my life.

James and I moved out! We got the house I mentioned in my last post and have been living here for about three months now. The decorating by the people who lived here previously wasn't great so we are working on changing one room at a time. We have both been working loads so it's a slow process. At the moment we are using what will be the craft room as the bedroom, while we get the bedroom decorated. This has left me with nowhere really to craft, which is why I haven't posted anything here.

With help from my cousin, my Mum and James we have got the wedding invitations made though. I don't have a photo of the finished outside of the card yet, but I will try to get one posted soon. I do however have a couple of  pictures from my Instagram. The first is my cousin and I working on the invites, and the second is the pile of invites finally finished.

Life Update

It's not often I share much about my life on my blog, but I thought I should explain why I haven't been around much recently. At the moment I am planning my wedding for Feburary, James and I are moving out of our parents houses for the first time (we find out this week if we get the house we wanted) and I am trying to find a job with more hours while doing extra hours at my current job. When I have had spare time, I haven't felt like doing very much, so no crafting has been done. When/if we get the house we will have a couple of spare bedrooms, so of course one will become a craft room. I am hoping that having a dedicated crafting space will give my creativity a boost and I will be back to more regular blogging.

Until I do get to make something though I will leave you with a look at our save the date card.

CYDI Chellenge #39 - Summer Smiles

The new challenge at CYDI? is Summer Smiles. I used Drenched Cat by KiniArt for my British summertime inspired card. We do love to complain about the weather, and recently it has been very erratic with grey skies and rain one minute and blue skies and sunshine the next.

Birthday Wishes

I haven't been very good at blogging recently, so for July I am aiming for at least two posts a week. It is a busy month for birthdays, so that should help. I recently bought a couple of craft magazines to try and inspire some creativity. Two of them came with stamp sets which I have used on this card. The image is from an Elisabeth Bell set, and the sentiment is from a Holly Hobby set.

Happy birthday Anne! and Happy Birthday Nine!

Today is both my Auntie and James' Auntie's birthdays.

First is the card for my Auntie Anne. I used George Swooney from Kenny K for her card, and gave him a red carpet to walk down. I added lots of glitter to the card to reflect the lights and paparazzi that would be around a red carpet.

James' Auntie Nine (Janine) loves cats so for her card I used Floating Cats by KiniArt.
