Cyclamen for November

It's hard to believe that there is only one month to go and the Year of Flowers is complete. My Mum and my MIL always have pretty cyclamens on their kitchen windowsills and so took my inspiration from them. I broke into my new Dotty Biscotti paper pack - love the colours - and choose raspberry fizz for my theme this month.

Here is a little close of the blooms which I coloured with the copic markers that match the raspberry fizz and ripe advocado colours.

Look out for Amarylis next month!

Climbing back on the crafting ladder!

Sometimes life just jumps up and bites you in the bottom on occasions and this last month has been one of those! A quick visit to Romania on work business and a health scare for my dear Mum (who is fine now) put my crafting on a back burner so to celebrate finding my JustRite stampers that I thought had gone out with the rubbish when I had my new storage units, I made some notelet sets.

The ones above use the Dot Spot stamp from PTI along with the matching Bitty Dots paper and ink for my friend Jeanette.

These ones below are a gift for Nina and Graham whose wedding we went to a month back, this time using Friends to the End.

Thanks for stopping by today and not giving up on me! The November installment of the calendar pages is coming up next!
