I just called to say....

1..   2..  3..   and I'm back in the game.
Did ya miss me? :-)
Isn't it incredible that we can land a robot on Mars, beam pictures and sound over 36 million miles, but it still takes 2 weeks to set up an internet connection!!!

Here's my first card in my new house :-) 
As you can see, I haven't yet unpacked my mojo!

This was a quick make for my BIL, with the help of a Dawny P sketch over at Papertake Weekly.
Stevie Thunder is coloured with Copics (which I have somehow forgotten how to use), and the sentiment was made on my comp.

Papertake Weekly - Sketch
Creative Inspirations - Bingo (white, blue, stamp)
Allsorts - Song Inspired - has to be 'I just called to say I love you' Stevie Wonder.

*****  It's good to be back  *****

1 of 365

Welcome to my new home....

just a word of advice to anyone considering moving...    DON'T !!!!
I have told Mr Kiss today, that I am not unpacking any more boxes because I am not staying here!!!  
I don't WANT to be 90 miles from my dd's -  my family -  my friends -  my favourite chocolate shop.
There have been tears!!  

Distraction is needed and, as it's going to be a while before my stash is unpacked I thought I would try a 365 Project.
Deets, if you're interested, are in my '365 Snaps' page (above).

With Love From Me To You

Come closer.... no, closer than that....   I'm gonna whisper    ;-)   
The house is sold and we are moving on the 14th!!    EEK!
I am almost scared to tell anyone, incase I put a hex on it, but the contracts are all exchanged and I am packing like mad!!

I just had time to make one more card, before my final craft supplies are boxed up.

I found this fab set of stamps in my local craft shop for only a fiver... bargain!!
I kept my card really simple.
I know these 'Me to You' bears are usually grey, but I coloured mine brown for the Less Is More colour challenge.

She's coloured with Copics and the little dots are done with a white gel pen.
I really like the dotty background effect - but whenever I do it, it always looks a bit of a mess. So, I've taken to just adding the dots at a few places around the image and that seems to be working better for me. Some of the dots are done with a glitter pen, which is hard to capture, but is very sparkly IRL :o)

Less is More - Brown and Pink
Winter Wonderland - Walking in a Winter Wonderland.
Sweet Stampin' - Inspired by a Song. The Beatles - With Love From Me To You.
Ladybug Crafts - check out their very first challenge - Anything Goes.
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

This is probably going to be my last post for a while - but I will still be able to pop over to your blogs :-)
And hubby has had strict instructions to get the internet up and running ASAP in the new place.
