It's been a while..........

It has been a while since my last post! In that time I have been pondering/dwelling on mostly what makes me happy.I made quite a big decision to end my time with Stampin Up, as it stands I am no longer a demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator for 3 years and in all that time till the end of last year I was very happy in what I was doing.
When I began my SU journey I had left a job in the industry that I loved but circumstances made it hard for me to carry on with that so SU seemed the obvious choice to pursue.
I could work from home and still do what I love, so for anyone pondering whether to join just go for it, everyones circumstances are different!
And I am forever grateful to Su for my Artisan design team spot, It was amazing!
Why did I make the decision to leave SU?
Well it's quite simple, if you are a cardmaker you will 'get' what I am saying.
I have been a cardmaker for 10 years.
In this time ' LIFE' happens
My son fell Ill the past 3 years.
That has been challenging.
My Goals changed
My main passion is for copic colouring and cute illustrations.
If you look here at Katy's Bloggeroo you will understand.

Once I had made that decision to go back to where my heart is in crafting I started to explore online for a cute stamp and I found this WPLUS9 set Holiday Hugs at Sevenhillscrafts, they stock all the latest MFT, Mama elephant, Lawn Fawn etc releases.
This card I made for my other half for christmas, he likes a busy card!

Whimsical Winter Mama Elephant

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed putting this card together!

This is not the only 'do what make's your heart happy 'thing' I am doing this year!
Last year in october we took over an abandoned allotment that is literally a 5 minute walk away from our house. In this time my other half has transformed the plot we were offered.
It was a BIG mess!

So the whole area the local council agreed to chop down.
It was 5ft high in something?
After they had chopped it down that's where we came in ( I say we but it was him really)
He has transformed this little area and I can not wait to grow our veggies and harvest our eggs!
Yes we have chickens!

and we have even hatched our own!
