It's been a while.....

Hello, do you remember me?!!
How many months have passed since my last post?!.....Too many that's how many lol!  But I feel now is the right time to get back to a bit of the 'old me' - BC Cazza (which means Before Children lol!).  The kids have been home for 10 months now and that's plenty long enough to get back to a bit of normality, and I've been feeling the creative 'neeeeed' for a few months now so have given myself a well needed kick up the backside to get on with it.....and here I am, wahooooo!  (but please be gentle with me!!)
So as I said earlier the kids have been home for 10 months now and what a 10 months!  Loads of fun, loads of learning (understatement!) and some tough times too but all in all an amazing time!  Hard going and absolutely knackering but now we can start to relax more as most of the foundations have been laid and we're all building on them.  They really are amazing kids and so happy which is all every parent wants ay.  Happy days  :o))  (well most of the time lol!)
So that's enough waffle, onto the serious stuff!  I've been catching up with blogger this past week and wow, what amazing inspiration you all are, I couldn't actually wait to get all my gear out and start playing again!  But I've done something a bit different for me, and something I'd like to do again (now time is at a premium!).....I've made a CAS card!!!  Shock horror!!!  And I really enjoyed it!!  What do you think?...
I made this for my cousins little boy who turned 2.  Spooky really as the last time I had a break from card making (when I smashed my wrist up) his was the first card I made after my cast was removed.  That card was to celebrate his birth though!

A side view...

So what do you think, something different right?!  It was lots of fun so there may be a few more of this style popping up :o))
I have been making the odd card during my break and I'll get around to posting them too, now I'm back ha!  So I'll see you all soon...
Much love,
