Well, apologies for the absence. I won't bore you with all the details, but we have been a very poorly house recently, so crafting and blogging have taken a very large back seat. I'm slowly getting round to visiting other blogs and leaving comments. I feel like I have missed out on seeing lots of lovely inspirational work. I've even had a box of new goodies from Stampin' Up sitting on my living room floor for nearly two weeks without barely giving it any attention at all. Inside are all the lovely Hearts a Flutter stamps and framelits, as well as the More Amore DSP, intended for Mark's Valentines card - well that didn't happen!
Anyway, I'm back on track. It's half term and I'm feeling crafty! Robbie Williams is on the CD player. I've set myself a goal to spend the morning scrapbooking and card making and then catch up on other stuff in the afternoons. I'm having a little break to write this post - and feeling rather virtuous as I have completed a scrap book layout for Emily's album this morning.
I would like to share a card with you that I made a few weeks ago before the lurgy struck. I've copied it from one I saw in Pinterest, so I can't take any credit for it at all, and all the materials are from Stampin' Up, apart from the gems.
The stamps used are from the Best of Everything stamp set, which I really love. The colour scheme is dictated by the paper - a retired hostess set called Cheerful Treat - Lucky Limeade, Concord Crush and Melon Mambo. I've used some matching stitched ribbon and a couple of gems for the middle of the flowers (punched with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack - a very versatile punch).
So that's me for now. I'm going to delve into that box of SU goodies and see what I can come up with. Hopefully there won't be such a long gap until my next post.
Hope you all have a good day. Thanks for dropping by, and as ever I really appreciate your comments.
