I have been very busy with sick kids lately and very over it...they are finally on their way to recovery....so scrapbooking here I come...I can't wait.....

I have also been very inspired by some beautiful cards on blogs I have come across...as a result I am going to give it a little go...I have been busy ordering stamps from overseas and on ebay and also got some netabilities...wow...they are just devine and so easy to use...I have a lovely water colour set to use...I am waiting for my stamps to arrive...there are so many gorgeous ones out there...think i need to get a job to pay for all the things I want to get.
