Keeping it simple.....

Hi everyone.......I'm trying to keep to the promise I made myself to blog at least every 2 days, so this is just a very quick post today. 
It's weigh-in tonight at 'fat-club', so I'm eagerly looking out of the window hoping it's started to'll be a great excuse not to go! LOL
  I've actually been very busy this past week or so, and have made lots of different types of cards. I can't show them yet as there's lots going on in my crafty world that I can't share at the you'll have to be patient until I can reveal all!
However, I can tell you that I've been asked to join the lovely team of crafters over at 
and will be doing my first card for them in February. I think most of the Design Team are American ladies, so it will be great to be inspired by their way of crafting.
Anyway here is my (very) simple card, suitable for a teenager, just made for my stock. 

Backing paper and bits from stash.
Navy 'linen' basecard from 
(part of my 'years supply' win)

Guitar music sheet from Google and the image was coloured with Promarkers. I'm trying to do a bit colouring every night, hopefully to improve on this shambles! Definitely need more practice.

Right, that's it for now....hope to catch you tomorrow night, sometime.
Stay safe and warm,
Barbara xx
