Dear crafting friends

If you saw my last post you would gather I was feeling a bit under pressure. Well I've had to visit the doctor re pain (yes again) and he says it's stress affecting my gullet. I didn't imaging that with the pain where it is that it would be that. However though I don't feel stressed like I did before I am feeling a bit of pressure and I have a couple of worries so I guess he's right. So I'm going to take my medication and take 2 or 3 weeks off my blog and visiting, hope you all understand why. I still want to chill out and craft, keep up my learning on my Cameo but I need to get myself out of doors, meet up with my dear friends, walk in the country etc as I know very well that if I don't this will just get worse. Action needed now I think. Happy crafting my dear friends. Polly x

New Baby Boy

Sorry I've not posted in a while, to be honest I've been playing with my Cameo trying to learn how to design. sometimes it all goes wrong :-( At last I thought, I had done something worth showing you, took it off the mat only to find it was in two pieces, didn't show until I removed it. Oh well, I have to try or I won't learn but so far more is in the bin than is useable.
So today I'm showing you a very simple card I made in a hurry when I had my Cricut Expression. I cut the shaped card on my Cricut. The paper is from my older stash so not sure where it's from. The image is from way back when I was into ready made images (seems light years ago) but as the baby ones were pretty I hung onto them. I inked the edges of my card with Distress Inks. The ribbon is from my stash, I hope you can see it says "Its a Boy" on it. The die cut is a Spellbinders with I cut on some pretty shaded cardstock. I added a few gems to finish.
