I have been a very bad blogger! AGAIN!

Okay, if anyone knows of a good way to keep me blogging regularly, please let me know! Answers on a postcard.... or just leave a comment! LOL!
Anyhoo, some of my more recent creations;

Card holder, I have been making so many cards lately and had nowhere to put them, so I decided it was about time they had their own little storage case. I used a HOTP Personal Shopper kit for this, I do like working with these kits as there is so much in them and always plenty of contrasting papers and embellies for larger projects!

A page featuring myself and my very dear friend Tina, who sadly died in March, I found this page very therapeutic to do, although I have not included any journalling, I'm not ready for that yet. But it is a photo of her, how I remember her, full of fun, joy and smiles! And yes those chocolates we are sucking on are willy shaped, and I look stunning! NOT!

And finally for today, a card I made a while back, which I absolutely love, It is all vellum and I started making those addictive gathered flowers from organza ribbon again!! And the gems in the middle of them set them off perfectly!

One final, non-craft related thing, we had a massive storm last night and a massive fire started at the end of my road in a derelict old school, it was such a lovely, old Victorian building though and it was so sad to see it burning, but at the same time absolutely amazing. The power of the fire is so intense. It took eight fire engines, over 12 hours to put out, I stood in my back garden and watched the roof collapse, an amazing sight to see but one I don't want to see again! The funniest bit though was when the hydrant across from my house lost pressure, the firemen pulled the hoses off and guess what? Sod's law, the pressure came back full force and sent them flying, thankfully they were okay though and took it in good spirits!!!!
