Cards and crafting

I have been busy over the last couple of weeks doing some prep for my Docrafts demos and also for my craft club. I have had some 'blank' moments this week though and have been struggling to find some new ideas. Do you ever get that feeling when you go onto a craft site or a blog that some of the creations are so beautiful, they make your tummy go 'boing' and you feel sickly? Or does that mean that there is something wrong with me?! I think its the colours that make me feel this way because I got a similar feeling today when I was in the garden centre looking at the room sets and the furnishings. Eventually, I got my ideas book out and started to draw some designs for cards. My 5 year old nephew was with me at the time and he is mad about crafting too so he asked me for some paper and a pencil and started to draw swirls and patterns as well. Whatever I do, he copies, especially if it involves cutting and sticking!
I got a few ideas for wedding cards but then realised that my demos for this promotional period have finished so I don't need to think about wedding cards for a while now. However, my older sister is a keen card-maker too and she is busy making wedding stationery so maybe she could get some ideas and inspiration from some of the lovely products I have been using. Hey ho, I will keep the ideas in my notebook anyway for a later date.
I am hoping to upload some photos this week of my cards so keep checking.....

Catching up!

I haven't been on here for a while. As you may remember, I had to say 'goodbye' to my little yellow car BUT have since said 'hello' to..... my new bigger yellow car!! It is so lovely and bright and I just keep getting in it and driving anywhere just for the sheer enjoyment! You will see from the photo why I love it.
