I've been working hard (I promise I really have!) designing new papers for my next CD. As I have said in previous posts it's been hard but finally things are coming together! So I thought I would give you a little preview of a few papers that are completed. The CD hasn't even got a name yet but I am hoping to be able to release it sometime next month. Gosh I have so much left to do before I can do that..I had best get back to it. Speak again soon!

I've had great fun putting this collection of my cards together, hope you like them!

Coming up with designs for a new CD is a that I have not been following recently! I have had what is known as a creative block..I just could not come up with anything even reasonable as ideas for my next CD. Maybe I have just been over doing it..maybe I have set myself too hard a task trying to release a CD every two months. I hasn't been a problem so why now?? I don't have an answer but thankfully since yesterday my muse has started to return and I put it down to taking time to browse images on the internet. There are so many hugely talented people who take the most beautiful photographs that I spent a very pleasant couple of hours just looking at pictures that people had posted of every conceivable thing from pots and pans to beautiful sunsets.. suddenly I had some ideas! I pulled together a collection of colours for my new CD and once that was done I started designing.

I thought you might like to see a few of the colours that I decided's not all the combinations just a flavour but so far the papers that are springing forth are great, even if I say so myself!! I had best get back to it before I forget all my ideas!

It's been fantastic weather here the last few days which is hard to believe when it's only April. Ian and I are not gardeners by any means but we have ventured to the local garden centre and purchased various plants to put in our poor bare garden. It's starting to look a little more alive now, I have to admit! On the craft front I am working away on my next CD but it is really slow going as I keep changing my mind about what colours and themes I want to use. When I find the right things I will fly through the designing I am sure.. if I keep telling myself this I hope it comes true!! If I am a little dry on the paper designing side of things I have had no trouble with my Digital scrapbooking as I have been making real advances in getting all my favourite pictures scrapped! Here a couple of new pages that I have completed recently..

Well time to get back to work, hopefully next time I will have something to show you from my new CD.

I have discovered ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) and I have been having fun creating some to swap on one of the forums that I am a member of. I thought it would be hard to create anything with such a small area to work on, but it turned out to be really interesting. I have so many bits and pieces in my craft room that are really too small for normal card making but work perfectly on an ATC, here's a few examples:

I used papers from my CDs Funky Seasons and The Funky One

This looks like something I will be getting addicted to!

April already, where is this year going? It must be because I am getting older, time seems to be going faster! When I was a child the summer holidays lasted a lifetime, now three months is gone in a blink of an eye. With thoughts of time going by so quickly I have been catching up on my digital scrapbooking here are a few pages that I pulled together recently,

This is my friends little girl enjoying her first Christmas, dressed as a snowman!! The papers used are from my CD 'Yule Be Funky'

This is Ian my other half and I on holiday a couple of years back. The papers used are from CD It's Funky Too

Sad I know but I love my little Smart Roadster, and it's never been as clean as this again! The papers used are from my CD The Funky One

Thanks for visiting!
