How Bad Am I???????????????

Hi Everyone :)

I just wanted to add a little note so any of you who may pop on here now again don't think I've moved to the moon - or somewhere further! I've been SUCH a naughty blogger! I haven't even updated my challenge links!

The reason? Wedding Stationery!!! I'm doing 2 at the moment and along with completing my usual orders, they seem to take over any crafting time I have! They are the first Wedding Stationery orders I've done and I'm really enjoying doing them :)

And I did my 1st cake in about 10 years last weekend - for my Niece's 2 yr old daughter, a gorgeous 2 tiered with purple & pink stars - I'll add a pic as soon as I've uploaded them. It was a good refresher too as I have to do her mums 5 tier Wedding cake in August!

Sorry couldn't stay and chat a bit longer but the reason I'm home from work so early today is I have to be at the Doc's in an hour!

No Challenge - Just wanted to share :)

I do an awful lot of personalised cards using photo's. This card was for a friend's mum's friends daughter!!!!!

I don't usually add these types of cards to my blog as there's only limited 'crafting' in them and I'd feel a bit of a cheat....but I was so pleased with how this one turned out I wanted to show it off!!!!

Thanks for popping by - see you soon xxx

Edited to add....

...In response to Jackie's comment - PLEASE don't think I'm minimising the 'crafting' that goes into the fantastic cards that we all make using photo's.......I probably didn't choose my words very well above!

The photographs you take Jackie and use on your cards are amazing - if you've not seen them ladies pop over here - It's just when I use a photo on a card, I scan it (given to me by the photographer to do so), crop it and print it. If I could 'alter' the pic in any way (not learnt that yet!) or actually take fantastic photographs like you do they'd be all over my blog!!! I must STOP admiring your work from afar and actually buy a CD!

Does anyone know of any challenge blogs that specialise in the use of photo's?

Off now to make another 'photo' card for someone in work to give to their 80yr old Uncle :)

THANK YOU Jackie - I consider myself reminded how good it can be to use photos on our cards :)
