....about last times' rather moany post :o( I was just having a crisis of confidence, but that's passed now, thanks to a great cardmaking night at Kim's (where we literally laughed until we cried) and a lovely (so far) weekend. Due to work commitments today, Himself and I celebrated our Valentine's Day yesterday. After I'd spent a nice couple of hours with girly friends and their kids at a playpark, Himself took me to Peebles where we had a twilight walk along the river, quenched our thirst in a pub and then had a fab meal in a delightful restaurant called The Sunflower. We were stuffed afterwards and verrry sleepy, but it was well worth it. So thank you, Himself!

I've decided I need to start entering more card challenges. So, although I was too late to enter this one, I used the Daring Cardmakers' challenge of last week to make a card with the theme of Amethyst. I enjoyed this as I love purple. It's the new pink as far as I'm concerned.

The pics a bit dark, sorry, but I've used a lacy trim from the (cough) Laurence Llewellyn Bowen collection and a felt flower topped with a purple gem brad. I used the sketch from CPS #153 for my positioning.
At the moment I'm putting together some products with a view to trying a new sales venture, and I've enjoyed packaging up some sets of notecards and envelopes:

It's great having a colour printer after years in the monochrome wilderness! Thanks to Vanessa for helping me out there!

Because I'm feeling cheerier, I've put together another set of bright and breezy mini cards for my Etsy shop also:

Sometimes we all need a bit of a boost!
