helloooo there ... tis me ... lol

wow I am back and good news we have sold and completed on our dear Mums flat ... feels kinda strange to think of other people in there ... but they are very nice and I hope they will be as happy as our Mum and Dad were when they first moved in ...

and on to my cards ... at last I can make cards again !!! ... had a bit of a lull on making them sorta lost my mojo as they say ...

thank you to all of you who have continued to stop by and leave such lovely comments ...

two cards for my granddaughter Chloe who we do not see anymore ... you all know the story ... but I keep sending cards on birthday and at Christmas ... never know if she likes them or not obviously and as I don't really know them anymore I don't really know what her likes are ... ho hum ... I try my best


 the flower on this card is a brown poundland special ... but I have glossy accented it ... never used this before but got it from the craft show I went to in Portsmouth a couple of weeks ago ... very pleased with the result ... it is a bit like enamel


the back of the card is a recycled hand made by tag ... and I was looking for a little bit of black ribbon ... sat next to me on the radiator (drying off) was an M&S blouse  ... so the label came off pretty quick ... nice little bit of ribbon eh ??

hope you are all having a lovely week ... promise to visit you if you leave a message ... and hopefully will catch up with you all soon xxxxxxxx
