My Lovely Friends

Hellooooo again.....guess what it's me....yes meeeeeee

Hello all you lovely crafty peeps out there. Well I meant to come back before Christmas & wish you a Merry Crimbo, then I meant to come back in January & wish you all a Happy New Year...........yeah both of them failed but I'm here now soooooooooo
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year everyone ;-) lol.

Yep still Thicky Vicky lol. However I am back now, permanently. Things have gone on this year & wasn't quite the start we wanted but you have to roll with the punches in life, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, lift your head, smile & carry on. So here I am smiling because even though things havnt gone as planned, I have my family & that is worth its weight in gold.

Ok so remember that post when I said I was gonna craft but stick to CAS blah blah blah......yeah well that kinda blew out the window You see I've always made foofy cards etc, right from the start so to start making CAS all the time.............well it bored me & whilst I love CAS cards I could not make them all the time..........there would be no challenge for me, no going outside my comfort zone (though crafting CAS 24/7 would deffo be outside my comfort zone lol). So in the last 3 months I've made 1 card..........yep 1 CAS card which probably took me nearly as long as it does doing a foofy card. I made this card that I'm gonna show you in January & I was bored at the fact of doing more like this..........much more :-( Also as the exciting thing that was gonna happen we've now had to put on hold :-( plans have changed.

So as of tomorrow I am back to making creations, CAS, foofy (most the time foofy lol) & lots of other things that will be completely new to me............including some sewing & I dont mean on cards lol. So watch this space as they say.
Ok I had to run & take a photo of it lol.............I thought I took one back in January.... I thought wrong ;-)
Ok so the paper is............ I have no idea lol. I think its a digital set but cant remember to be honest, sorry peeps :-(

The image is of course from Tiddly Inks & is a digi image.......... she is here & is called 'Faythe Flies' & she was coloured with copics......... I will see if I can remember the colours...
E11, E21, E00, E000 - Skin
E29, E27, E23, E21 - Hair
R85, R83, R81 - Shoes, Butterfly
W3, W1, W00 - Dress
I totally forgot to ground she is floating lol.......

I let my granddaughter have this card & so she drew a piccy of me, her smiling nanny apparently as I'm always smiling lol.........she's such a cutie bless her.
The words are because she wanted me to spell different words for her lol, Gaga is what she has always called her grandad, Arjay says the same bless him.

Ok so while the card is not bad & while I admire people who make CAS cards, its not me & I would end up quitting crafting altogether, which I nearly did.

I will show you my christmas makes another time as I've babbled enough now lol. I am back tomorrow with my usual type of card & its my first DT card back..........yep I'm back with the lovely Tracy & her uber talented design team over at Noor Design UK. Excited but boy am I I will see you tomorrow my lovelies.

Enjoy your night & take care mmwah.
Loves yas lots
Vicky xxxx

Vicky, how exciting to see a make from you after all this time! Gorgeous too!! Love the CAS design and such a sweet image too. I do love your 'foofy' cards though, so I'm glad you're not giving up on that style of crafting. Lovely to read a bit of your journey, sorry it's not been all 'ups', but glad you are hanging in there and so right too, to take comfort in family. That is what life is all about after all. Peyton's pic is so sweet! Looking forward to seeing what you do for Tracy and the team. Yay you! Big hugs, Wends x

Lovely to see you and lovely card too. I love cas but I also love foofy but not too foofy, and everything in between. It is good to make allsorts I think. Looking forward to the next card and great to have you back, hugs x

Ella's Design said...

Nice to see you back, Vicky! Like you, I had a bit of a crafty wobble after the festive season and questioned whether I wanted to craft again, but I think it's either in you or it's not and if it is, you can't help but be creative in some way! Looking forward to your sewing makes as it's something I'd like to get back into and I have to say, I'm a sucker for CAS so this little card is right up my street...though I can always admire a bit of foofiness too! Hugs, Lisa x
