Jump cut....

I am not going to bore you with details (excuses, reasons etc) why I have not posted for so long, instead I am going to jump cut to today and get on with the business in hand.

I have just returned (got back 13 days ago) from a fabulous trip to the USA where I enjoyed some rest and relaxation, met up with some great crafting pals and did a little light shopping in the craft stores and the outlet fashion malls.

I could easily fill this post with pictures and lists of all the fabulous stuff I picked up but instead I think I would like to focus on one or two things and then maybe show the rest as I start to use it... so you can see what I bought and what I made with that product or item.


Now having said that, I have not  yet started to make anything at all with the things I brought back, but I am itching to share these fabulous goodies with you...so I am going to go ahead and do just that...and will have to come back later and share some projects I make with this gorgeous haul of goodies from Um Wow Studio. 

This is not my first lot of Um Wow goodies, but I love them so much I find myself being slightly stingy with how and when I use them...so I figured if I get some more I won't feel so bad  when I use them... and lets face it, they are too fabulous to just sit on my desk...
                                                         
I have been "slightly wiped" since we got back (and it did not help that the clocks went forward that very weekend) .. and we had a wonderful family wedding 7 days after we landed so I am not yet fully back into the swing of things...but I did get a couple of cards done and out this week... And this new home card  is the first of them.
Sadly the photo (which had  to be snapped really quickly because the deadline for completion of the card changed and I lost four days that I thought I had) does not show all the depth of colour and all the texture on this card - it really is one of those cards that cries out to be touched - but it was delivered to the new deadline and the recipient was thrilled so that is what really matters.

The weekend sprawls ahead filled with options and possibilities. Will I go to Ally Pally and mooch around the craft show or will I start organising the new stuff and putting it away, will I get all arty and inky ...or will I laze about and procrastinate?   Who knows, if I'm really good I could do all of the above

 Happy Friday"

Any Excuse... for a Tag swap...

The recent heatwave has kept me out of my craft room and I was itching to get back in there and make something ...anything... And my som...
