Hello, It's been a long time...

Good morning to all my crafting buddies, sorry I have been missing for soooo long, over a week! My modem has been acting up for a while now. Last Tuesday I spoke with 3 people on the phone which took up 4 hours of my precious crafting time, got 3 different suggested solutions, none of which were any good........ on Thursday I spoke with a tech guy called Graham and he agreed with me a new modem was required...that is in the post somewhere, fingers crossed it arrives today. I've managed to get online this morning with the old modem so this will be a short post.

I have been very busy crafting some of which I can't show until after the big day, but I will share a birthday card with you this morning, I made it for Ann Flutterbycrafter

The card is 8 x8 I used 7 Gypsies 8 x 8 papers T!ms stamps and a wide assortment embellishments.

I stamped the papers and some card stock to make embellishments with. Covered a chipboard bird inked the edges, embossed the acetate layer held on with a brad for the eye half a stamped clock face for the wing finished off with a crown.

This card has many layers of paper, webbing, gaffer tape stamped images....

I also decorated the inside of the card, made a pocket with tag. The tag was decorated unfortunately I forgot to take a pic. I really enjoyed making this card for Ann, it has been a long time since I got to sit and really have a good play, hopefully I won't have to wait till we get snowed in again! lol Although looking at this weeks weather forecast maybe it won't be that long..

Hopefully our new modem will arrive today fingers crossed then we will get caught up with a few things around here.
Take care and happy crafting Love Lynne xx
