... I know - me - writing a post!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.  Can't believe its been so long since my last post - I can only apologise I had a serious lack of  mojo relating to card making, blogging and comment leaving - I got a bit fed up with it all and seriously considered packing it all in, but I've hung on and started to make a few cards again.   I have been having a little nosy around and seeing lots of gorgeous makes as always so hopefully I'll get back into full blogging/blog hopping mode soon :-).

Here is a recent card I have made for Ians aunty who's birthday is at the end of January.

The Image is Elisabeth Bell from an art pad, coloured with promarkers.  The dp's are cut from a 12x12 sheet, matted onto Blue textured card.  I have then punched some butterflies and added pearls and then added ribbon and charm from my stash.

She was a lovely image to colour especially after a long break.

I would like to enter this into:

Sweet Stamping - girly but no pink
Papertake weekly - anything goes

Thank you for sticking with me through my absence, I really appreciate it and thank you for looking, hopefully I'll be back soon.



  1. Hey, Ali, a Happy New Year tp you aswell! Hope you had a fabulous festive season and it's nice to see you back in 2015 - you don't need to apologise for your absence, I think everyone is feeling the same way. We put so much pressure on ourselves to blog daily/weekly, when really we should do it as and when we have the time and enjoy it!
