I'm Back

Good morning all you lovely crafters. It's been a while since I've posted anything on my blog as those of you who visit me will have seen. I've had my daughter in hospital and life has been turned on it's head. I won't bore you but it's gonna be a while before things settle if they ever will and I've not felt like blogging much nor had the inclination to  craft. Still a huge thanks to those of you who have continued to visit.
I hope you all have a little sunshine wherever you are for the bank hols, it sure makes us feel better to see it and it's been hiding for quite some time now.
I've bought some of the new air dry clay and moulds too and my daughter and myself were up nearly all night playing with it, it's fabby stuff and I love the little embellishments you can make with it.
We made a bag full. So you will probs see some of them on new cards to come.
I do have a card that I made for a challenge but unfortunately didn't get the chance to post it so decided to slap it on anyway so to speak.
Yes, it's another Tilda. I lurrv these sweeties, and watch them come alive as you start to colour them in. I've just spotted the new Ribbon Girls challenge to add sparkle and seeing as though I've overdosed on the new frontage (amazing stuff) she sure does sparkle so she's heading over there.

Go Kreate - frilly 4 for card shape.
Tilda with summer flower - coloured with distress inks and cut out with Spellbinders Floral Ovals, edged with Shabby Pink Frantage.
Papers - First Edition,  Rose Garden.
Magnolia doily and fence dies
Whimsy - Double Scallop Tag die
La La Lands - Heart banner
Flowers - WOC and others which I dusted with the frontage too.
Butterfly from a craft fair.
I am slowly getting round to visiting you all.
Enjoy a sunny Sunday.
Hugs Sue X

  4. Hello Sue,

    What awfull to hear about your daughter,I hope she's a bit better now. I wish you all the best.

    What a great Pink card did you make,so precious& adorable.

    The frantage on the card is blinging so much, I love it.

    And at many cards I saw the la la land heart Banner passing through, and finally I have ordered the die today in a Dutch store. No one could deliver the die here,and today I found on the internet a store where they deliver the die. I'm so happy, you probably can imagine.

    Lots of Hugs Ju@nita
