Trying to get back into the swing of crafting

Today I did my ATCs for CBC swap and got them in the post (have to confess to being late, but wasn't able to do so much crafting in the past weeks because of the pneumonia).

Anyway, the ATC subject was emotions, so I did one depicting 'happiness' and the other was 'anger'. I wasn't able to scan them because my main laptop wouldn't boot last weekend and I had to do a restore. I had to put the software back for my printer/scanner, but I obviously didn't do it properly because when I went to use the scanner it wasn't playing fairly - must sort it out (among loads of other things).

I need to get on with the dlo on Helen's CJ on Memories for the CJ group I'm in on CBC. I've really enjoyed being part of this and am so looking forward to getting my own journal back to see what others have done - not long to wait now. And I'm already looking forward to being part of a new group - I need to decide on my topic (still thinking about it).

I've decided that I should be well enough to have my card sale on Saturday 10 March and so I sent out invitations today. The proceeds will be in aid of TEAR Fund.

I've begun crafting again in the last few days and made some Mother's Day and Easter cards, but need to replenish stocks of other cards. I had some lovely die cuts received in a swap this morning which will be great for making some more Mother's Day cards - although I don't want to make too many in case they don't sell.

Think I'd better get off here and sort out my craft stuff which is piled on the table and perhaps make a few more cards this evening.
