A Babies Rabbit

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  Yes, I'm back creating again and posting my cards.
Today I have a new card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Sketch # 132
This week our sponsor is 
Little Blue Button 

Little Blue Button Stamps started it's life in December 2012 as free digital stamps company "Digital designs by Olga".  Later in spring 2013 it was reborn as Little Blue Button Stamps and first Design Team started it's work.  In the summer of 2013 we started to produce rubber stamps which were pressed and packed by C.C.Designs company. In Fall 2014 we started to release clear stamps but due to some problems in my life I had to shut down both clear and rubber and continue with digital stamps only.  Now I continue to create designs for digital stamps and printable by LBBS and clear stamps for Russian store by Tamara Startseva

Cards I've Made

Sweet Sketch Wednesday card for 
Sketch #131

Hi everyone, yes I'm still alive and kicking.
I'm so sorry I haven't posted any cards since January.  But since then I've had time to make a few cards but not the time to post them.  I've been snowed under with a family wedding, taking my son to University which is a six-hour road trip from our house and a house full of visitors, cooking washing and cleaning.  My life hasn't felt like my own.  Once some of the visitors left, I then had my bestie from London staying and my sister from Cairns in Australia.  I haven't laughed so much in years, to the stage I was crying with laughter and nearly wetting myself at the same time.  And there wasn't a lot of alcohol involved just good clean fun during that time it was fun times all around.  But I must admit my eldest had been at boarding school for 7 years and I saw him most weekends now he's so far away from me it's quicker for me to fly down to see him rather than drive and I'm missing him dearly but I can't tell him that.  I've just got to get more involved with the business, housework and more crafting and I can't wait for him to arrive home on Good Friday for two weeks mid-term break.  Then he goes back to Uni and my youngest will be home for a two-week break from boarding school.  I can't wait.
