Time to update again

Well I can't believe it's been so long since I updated my blog, time just seems to run away with me.

I suffer with depression and it hit me quite bad for a few months, but I seem to be getting over the worst of it now, so I won't dwell on it.

I have been away on holiday to the lovely island of Menorca, it is such a beautiful island, we usually go there twice a year, I love it, roll on May.

Well it's that time of year again, Christmas!!!!, hope all of you are all ready, I'm not far off now, still got quite a few cards to make, but with the help of my daughter I'm sure I will get there, she has made a few of the cards I'm going to put on here, there's nothing we like more than to sit and craft together.

Anyway enough of me, time to put some cards on for you to have a look at, with me feeling down my inspiration seems to have deserted me, I'm not altogether very happy with the cards, but I'm sure whoever I give them too will appreciate them and not look at them with the critical eye that we crafters do (well I hope not anyway lol).

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
