So sorry no new posts lately....

....I've not been shirking - made loads of stuff - but my card-reader and my pc have fallen out again and I cannot get them to talk to each other at all.  I bought a new card reader and that's not talking either so I cannot upload any pics in any sensible way.

It's a complete pain as I have a couple of DT projects that need 'upping' but I'm stuffed until I can get pc nerd son to have a look (when the Donna Lee docks...!).

Off to walk the dogs instead.......

Steampunk Junkies - Challenge 3 - Cogs 'n Keys.

This month the theme at Steampunk Junkies is Cogs 'n Keys so this is what I did this month.
As luck would have it - it's my OH's birthday on the 8th so it's also his birthday card! LOL!

Please do pop over to the blog and have a little butcher's at the projects my teamies have come up with - they're a talented lot!  You could also consider entering something of your own...?

See ya there!

My SIL Marg's birthday card

My SIL Marg is another crafter and looks forward to my cards but she's going to have to wait for this one after the week I've just had...! At least I gave her her present when I saw her last week!

She's a big fan of Deco and my home forum of Trimcraft has a challenge on this month for acetate to be used so I combined the two.

Sorry about the pic - the acetate didn't like the flash at all! Neither did the greeting or the foiled backing card!

The verse is my own but feel free to use it if it fits your sister!
I would normally have a few pics but really didn't have any wherewithall left at the end of this card - anything that could go wrong - did!

Still, it's finished and she may actually get it....some day!

Lots going on at Chez Eiglas... ;)

I've been home from work now for nearly three months - and it has been wonderful...! I've drawn, painted, had an amazing time with ...
