This one was for my Dad's birthday (obviously!) I told you that you'd be seeing more big letter / number cards. I'm not very good at mens cards, they always seem boring to me, but I really liked making this one.
And onto some non-craftyness, I cleaned out my little goldfishes tank this morning, it had horrible fungus stuff on the glass of the tank, so i emptied a fair bit of the water out then wiped the sides of the tank. Its a nice, clean home for fish now. Now I'm just catching up on Neighbours while updating this and my others sites.

You should definitely check out her blog while you're there, she's one of my fave bloggers, and her cards and craftiness really inspire me.

I made the card below for my mum when she had to go into hospital for an operation. She's now well on her way to recovery. I seem to be into making bright cards lately, plus I love the little ladybugs I got from a website.

Now...which one to show first?
My mum bought her very first stamp from a site called one stop card crafts. I recommend checking it out, they're good prices plus you get a minimum of 10% discount off your order no matter how little you spend. Ramble over, anyway this is a Jollynation stamp and we both liked it because we have a caravan and go camping, although not as much as we used to. Its perfect for my grandma and grandad too as they love going away in their caravan.

I went to a craft and gift fair at Reebok Stadium in horwich last sunday, it was quite small but that wasn't a bad thing as there was some good quality stuff there (I spent too much lol).
I think its a crafters curse, spending too much money!
Oh and i have finally taken the plunge and bought....wait for it...a Cuttlebug!!!! And some lovely dies and embossing folders to go with it. I keep checking the site to see the status on the order. I cant wait! I've wanted one for quite a while but was put off by the prices. But then i found a site called Crafts at home, where its only £49.99!
Anyway thought I'd better post something on my blog as I've been neglecting it quite a bit. I'll try to show my new cards soon I promise.

I'll be making lots of cards with my new crafty stuff soon, I'm also planning on making a bunch of Valentines cards and persuading my boss to let me sell them at the shop. I've never bothered with Valentines day cards before so it should be fun.
I'm knackered from today so I wont write a list of what I bought, but it involves lots of paper, card, peel offs and gorgeous decoupage dragons. God I cant wait. Hey come to think of it why am I? I'm off!

Now I have a few plans for this year, and I hope I can be successful in all of them.
- Get a new job
I, quite frankly, am sick of my job. I dont seem to get any respect from my bosses, I can work my ass off every night, and they only bring up negative things, instead of giving me kudos for my good work. I'm finding myself having to do jobs that other co workers claim to have done, because if I dont then I get lectured on it, even though its not a fault, and quite frankly its driving me crazy. The only reason I've stayed working there for so long, to be honest, is because I've got too comfy there. I need a new challenge, I need to work somewhere where I'm appreciated and not treated like a useless lump. If I could quit right now and walk away and concentrate on my avon for a while and look for a new job then I would. But I'd dissapoint my dad and he'd be mad at me.
- Pass my driving test
Well I need to get the courage to book it first! I've been hurt too much when I've failed it and I really dont want to do that again, but i DO know I CAN pass the test, I just need to go for it. Arghh! Positivity all the way, right?!
There is plenty more but those are the main two, and if I dont do them then I'm gonna go loopy lol.
Oh and I also promise to do lots and lots and lots of crafting and card making this year, and to keep my blog updated.
