Hello Again It's Been A While...

Good Evening,

Gosh it feels like forever since I last blogged anything.  I have had a bit of a break from crafting, I've had one or two commissions which I may blog later but apart from that I've been catching up on my much neglected home and been busy with work and family.  Also for someone who hasn't had much of a social life for the last few years I've had several weeks where I've had lots of nights out and things on which has done me good and cheered me up no end!  Oh and I've discovered Pinterest which I'm completely obsessed with!!!

So on to my first blogged card since April...

The stamped image is Peek a Boo by Sugar Nellie and has been coloured with Promarkers to match the Springtime papers which are by Hobbycraft and were a gift from one of my lovely crafty pals.  I've added faux stitching to the papers and followed a sketch from a Docrafts Sketch Challenge.  The dies used are both by X-cut and I've run the white die cut circle through a swiss dots embossing folder.  The card is finished with a foam number from Asda, spotty ribbon from Joanna Sheen and some pink and green gems from Docrafts.

It's nice to be back and hopefully it won't be as long until my next post!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
