I've got some catching up to do.....

I've been awol!  I was planning a 2 week break from my beloved paper and dst and therefore a 2 week break from the blog but my eyes have consprired against me so I've been unable to see well enough to do much ever since I started my holiday.  Still, I've made the best  of it and decided to carry on making the cards - that's my excuse for some of the distinctly odd placing on some of them.  I'll post all my makes over the next couple of days but here's the start........

This is the super stash I received from Cazarol this aftrnoon (my postie doesn't do mornings!) from the crafty place September stash swap.  It's a very gereous swap and I set to it immediately, making the following card using one of the pieces of 6x6 Carol sent me.  The die cut was from a goodie bag I purchased at the Harrogate papercraft extravaganza.  More on that in the next couple of days.  I used my brand new promarkers to colour the clasp of the bag to make it stand out from the rest of the bag.  I'm very happy with my new pens but "& son" is sulking because I've told him they're off bounds for him. - poor boy!

I've also made this little covered notebok today for the little girl my Mum sponsors in an orphanage in India - 50% of the money I get from the cards I sell at work goes to the orphanage.
