Make in minutes

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week. 

These cards are featured in this months Making Cards magazine, and were all made from the Papermania Hot Diggity Dog collection, which is so much fun to use!

They're all really easy to make, and the background papers are all yummy candy colours that work brilliantly with the toppers. And the kits have loads in them so great value for money. 

My favourite has to be the little dog in a jumper, who's saying 'does my bum look big in this!' I can so relate lol!!!

Thanks to all those kind bloggers who wished me luck with the house move - its daunting! My craft room is the only one that hasn't been de-cluttered, my argument is I know where everything is and I still need to use it lol!!! 

Also thanks for the kind thoughts about my poorly knee - got to get it x-rayed to see what's going on. Probable ligament damage and maybe some arthritis - obviously reached that age when it all starts falling apart :-)). Main problem is stairs - and my craft room is upstairs - doh!

Have a great holiday weekend

Thanks for stopping by

I've been away from blogland for the last couple of weeks, as I've been spending all
My time getting out house up together ready to go on the market for sale. 14 years of accumulated clutter had to be sorted (still not finished!!!)

Told Agents not to bother photographing my craft room lol!! But here it is for my WOYWW friends :-)  If you want to join in the desk hop, check out Julia's blog here

I;m in the middle of sorting materials and kits for a class next week (trying to keep ahead of myself for a change!) so you can see a pile of papers, stamps and card candi in the little boxes. At the bottom of the pic is a cute little butterfly notebook given to me by my sis-in-law.

I will be checking out desks later, but realistically it will probably be the weekend before I get to see them - in the meantime, to anyone affected by the Oklahoma tornado, know that there are many of us thinking of you and hoping that you and your families are safe - the devastation this caused is heart-wrenching, and you are in our thoughts

WOYWW & a tidy desk!

This was my desk for a brief moment in time earlier today......

but then I sat down and started playing with my Martha Stewart air dry clay! 

This is in preparation for next weeks classes when we will be making lotsof  different embellishments, using clay, shrink plastic, angelina fibres, UTEE, ribbon roses and paper flowers! And I'm having a lot of fun making the samples :-)

I wasn't able to join in WOYWW last week, so hope to catch up with quite a few of you over the next few days via Julia's wonderful blog hop

Happy crafting!

Birthday cat & spring cleaning!

Not much crafting happening in the Willis house this week as it's been pretty busy. And I've even started a bit of a spring clean! Unheard of in this house :-)

Only had time to make a quick card for a cat-loving friend from a lovely Kanban kit I bought last summer

Hope you're enjoying the holiday weekend, and that you see some spring sunshine wherever you are

Thanks for stopping by
