Not enough time in the day!

I suppose it's wishful thinking to imagine that I will finally get to do some crafting this weekend (when hubby is on hand to look after baby).  I have lots of new goodies to play with: the last few months worth of Little Claire Club stamps, a Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit stamp set, a Crafters Companion Popcorn Bear stamp set and some lovely papers that came free with a magazine (I think they were from My Minds Eye). Also need to sort and store my stamps as about half my collection are neatly filed in categories in ring binders on nice laminated sheets - but the other half are just dumped in a draw, most of these are new stamps that I have used about once but not got round to putting away, some are brand new though - reminds me I bought some nice Xmas stamps from Inkadinkado that I must put to good use ;)  Enough ramblings, below is one of the cards I made back in Jan/Feb when I was on maternity leave and waiting for baby bump to arrive.

Blooming Lovely
Items: Main stamp from Little Claire - 'Blooming Lovely', greeting stamp from a Daisy & Dandelion set, Promarkers, Memento Tuxedo Black, smooth cream card, bottle green hammered card, blue adhesive gems and a square cream card blank.

At last I think I am finally getting the hang of this, I've today taught myself to put a watermark on my photos, which means I can now start uploading pictures of some of my creations :)  Over the last 5 months (since baby Elliot arrived) I have only made the cards I have really needed too, like ones for close family (luckily I had made myself a stash of general cards whilst waiting for bump to arrive!) but now I am getting back into the swing of things and hopefully should have some pictures of my recent creations to upload very soon.

I'm also still trying to complete a scrapbook I'm doing of my Mum and Dad's trip to India (they went in October 2008 and I've only done 2 pages so far - maybe they'll get it as a Christmas 2012!) and I have also made a start on a baby scrapbook. 

In the meantime here is a past creation - comments and ideas on ways to improve them are always welcome.
