Tied to the computer most of the day!!

Good evening, well I've spent most of today embellishing my blog and the most amazing thing about that is that I've actually managed to do it.  Having found all sorts of FREE buttons and blinkies sites I just went mad.  I particularily like "Shabby Blogs", I think their designs are great.

I've also spent time making my Husband's birthday card as he is away just now, I thought I would have peace to make it.  Not quite finished yet, but will put it on when I have.

I managed to finish my sock though and have cast on for the other one.

Here is a birthday card made for a friend using free papers from Making Cards magazine

It's for a winter birthday, in December so I thought this image suited well.  I love Art Deco images, the fashions are always so elegant.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid.  Of course the danger of making cards in advance of when they're required is the temptation to go back and do something extra to them, but I won't with this one, think there's enough on it.

Not much news again, I don't really lead all that an exciting life....well I guess I do I'm a BLOGGER!!
Bye x

A lovely elegant card Kate. Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging where the housework and even sometimes the crafting takes second place!
Have fun, hugs Erika.
