Where does the time go? It seems eons since I was last here and I am now absolutely exhausted after the January tax return filing deadline. After several nights of not getting to bed until 4 am, and one or two nights of not getting to bed at all, I managed to get all the tax returns in but now need to take this week off to recover!

We've been shopping at Ikea, bought a great new shelving unit for my office, spend quite a bit more than I intended on craft stuff (and oh, boy, I bought a heat tool and it is awesome...I have been wanting to learn how to emboss for some time and it is brilliant!) and our eldest son is coming round shortly to finally finish off my Heavenly Crafts website!!! That means, of course, that I hope to be selling stuff shortly so will be moving my designs to the website. If you want to grab anything now whilst it is free, please do so :).

I'm also considering becoming a demonstrator for a stamp company and selling their stamps on my website. what do you think? Is this something anyone would be interested in (buying stamps I mean!)? It would have to be for UK customers only at present due to delivery costs though, should I go ahead with this?

Anyhow, I'm off to do some major sorting out in the office now, plus do some photoshopping as I have really missed that these past few weeks. In the meantime, I am leaving you with a quick look at the card I made last night:

I used the Martha Stewart pop up butterfly punch for the edging. This was one of the things I treated myself to after all the hard work in January! The teddy bear was from a stamp (also a treat!) which I stamped onto white card and then embossed, and coloured in using watercolour pencils. The background paper is from my stash and I can't remember where I got it,but it might be Dovecraft if anyone is interested.One of my boys said it was the best card I had ever made, although considering some of my efforts, that is not necessarily saying an awful lot!

Happy scrapping!
