I've been gone toooooo long!

 
 


Time to stick my head above the parapet again! It's been a long time since I've blogged for various reasons. Those of you who know me know why, and those if you who don't, probably wouldn't believe me anyway! Let's just say its been complicated and a bit traumatic. But I'm back now, battered and bruised, but wiser and changed. There's nothing like a glimpse of your own mortality to bring what really matters into acute focus.

Whilst I haven't been blogging, I have been crafting and I've learnt a new skill that I'm really excited by. I've been felt making from wool tops. So, maybe I'll share some of that too over the coming weeks.

I popped over to Our Creative Corner, to get me back into the swing. This month's challenge is called Forgotten things. The challenge is to use stash or a technique that has been forgotten about.

I've recently had some new craft storage delivered and whilst sorting through all my stash and organising it I found soooooo many things I'd forgotten about. Among them was this Spellbinders lattice die and this cute Lili of the Valley Stamp. So, I set about using them on this card. I'm having a bit of a run on the colour blue at the moment, quite a rare choice for me. Last weekend I sat in the garden in the sunshine colouring with my copics. Even used a bit of Frantage too.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by.

Fresh and so pretty! I love how you've composed this card and how the touches of blue all tie in together so well.
