Desperate for crafting time!!!

Finding it so hard at the moment to get any crafting time. By the time we have had a wonderful day of adventures (today was fishing from a jetty) and everyone is in bed, I don't sit down till around 10.30pm. The first thing I do is finally go thru all my emails from the blogs I follow, which leads me to Pinterest and then time just disappears.......

Like now, its 11.30pm and I'm so tired but also so desperate to create. I have a feeling my tired body will win tonight but must find some time tomorrow to make something...I have card making withdrawal symptoms!!!

So decided I would share another two cards that I made last weekend when staying with my Mum.
I absolutely love my Lawn Fawn 'Into the Woods' 6x6 pad but don't seem to use it enough. So decided to play around with different colours, patterns and paper lengths to see what I could come up with. I'm not usually a person who likes orange but it fits so perfectly with the light blue and green (and of course I had to fit in a 'hello'!!).
This card started life as something else. I actually wanted the triangle to cover 2/3's of the card front but got all my angles wrong and cut in the wrong place. I decided to try and stick to papers from the same collection. This is Lori Whitlock 'Here and Now'. The Happy Life bubble I hand-cut from a 12x12 sheet covered in bubbles with all sorts of wonderful comments. I'm a sucker for light blue and white every time!!

Keep your fingers crossed for me to at least start a card tomorrow. Maybe I can suggest a craft session with the kids......

Take care
