Helloo...........Ok, I have three more 52Q's to catch up on and then I'm up to date. I'm quite pleased with myself for keeping up with them, even though it has been difficult at times trying to fit some crafting in to my little 'time share' LOL!!

So, here are my two recent tags......................first, "What is my latest Obsession?" Mmmmmm, all I can say is YUM!! LOL!

Secondly, "If I had a free day to do anything, what would I do?"

I used some very old plain coloured card for these two tags. For the latest obsession qu, I used plain thick brown card and punched a few circles using my 1" circle (never? lol) punch. I then added some glossy accents in 2 separate shifts and used these as my pretend choccie buttons. Quite an clever idea for me as I'm hopeless with ideas normally, LOL.

I also noticed, after making the pink tag, that I said I would go to our nearest beach, but I haven't painted any water/sea, nuffink resembling the beach/sea at all, lol, but nevermind, it's in my mind, so that's all that matters..... ha ha LOL!! Plus, the white pen would not write very well on the pink card, though I did persevere, but it didn't come out very bold at all, hope it's legible. :)

Anyway, that's it for now, I hope you like my creations and thank you for popping along. XX

I seemed to have slipped by the wayside again, lol. Nevermind, I'm back now. I've been able to catch up with a few little projects, but time just isn't on my side lately and I feel I'm constantly battling between work, family life and ME time.

Anyway, I guess that's the way life goes for most of us, it's just how we use our time is the important thing.

So, I've managed to catch up on my 52Q's, I believe I have maybe 2 or 3 (that's including this weekend to complete). I've tried not to faff about too much with them but just feel relaxed about the way I do them instead.

I've also made a birthday card using a very cute little stamp and received my inchies back from the May swap. I have yet to photograph the remainder of the set, so will upload those soon.

Here's one of my 52Q's........

Birthday card..........

May Inchies - The swap was hosted by a lovely member of Bubbly Funk, called Suzie. She was a super host. The theme was black and white, with a hint of red.

I will upload some more photos tomorrow sometime. Thanks lovely peeps for taking a look. XX

Haven't we been so lucky with the beautiful weather over the past few days? I have to say though that it is a bit too hot for me, so hopefully the next few days are going to be a bit cooler. I'm already beginning to look like a candy stick, lol.

Anyway, I've managed to catch up with 3 of my 52Q's. With quite a few things to catch up on, I didn't know what to start first, lol, but I guess I'll get there in the end.

I've managed to catch up on What makes me ME?, What is the Truth? and What is on your to do list today?

Apologies for the first one on the reverse of the card as I missed off the 's' on 'makes', when I read the title to myself, 'I tounded a bid like hiss', like I had a 'bocked dose' LOL!! Silly me.

Next is What is the Truth, probably not in the right order, but hey ho.

Third one is What is on your to do list today? I used the note paper that I had actually wrote my list on, so thought that would be a good idea. Not happy at all with this one, very plain, very boring. I just ripped it a little bit and even left my doodleys on it, as you do, when making a list, (well, I do hee hee).

I've got a set of triangular ATC's completed and ready to post onto Carol who kindly hosted the swap for us on Bubbly Funk, so will pop a piccy on later this week.
That's it for now, I have a couple of other things that I'm working and planning to work on, so hopefully I can show and tell (ha ha) those soon.

As always, thank you for popping by and leaving a comment. XX
