Hello dear blogfriends,
I am so sorry for doing a disappearing act over the past weeks (months), however it has been a very hard time for me. I am slowly getting back into the swing of things and hope to start cardmaking again and of course, blogging too. Until that time I am going to try and leave a few words now and again to let you know I am still around and also leave comments on your blogs when I am able. Please note, even though I have been unable to comment I have been popping by your blogs and have been in awe of your beautiful handiwork.
I would like to thank everyone who has contacted me with emails, cards, e-cards, voicemails and comments too. Your friendship and commitment to me and the blog has not gone unnoticed and your wonderful, caring words have lifted me on many occasions. Bless you all.
I do hope you all had a wonderful and peaceful Christmas and I pray 2013 will be a good year for you. I have made only one New Year's resolution and that is to get myself up and running again (figuratively of course!!) and to get back into the land of the living. Your continued prayers and support would be so much appreciated.
Quickly before I go I would like to show you the last cards Ellie and I made at the beginning of November. It was the last card I made before going AWOL. It is a case of a card I found on one of the blogs I follow; unfortunately I cannot find the original to show you. I will keep looking I promise so that I may give the credit due to the designer/creator. If anyone knows who it is in the meantime I would appreciate a nudge.
This first one is Ellies version using sage green card for the leaves and flocking for the stamen center upon Spellbinders Labels 25 and a snowflake embossed background. She finished it with a sentiment using a freebie stamp from a magazine.
The next card is my version using soft green card for the leaves and pencil for the stamen center upon Spellbinders Labels 14 and M.bossibilities embossed background. The sentiment stamp was also a freebie from a magazine.
They are subtley different but both gave a very favourable result. I think you will agree this style of card really shows off the delights of Spellbinders dies and embossing folders and that is why I chose this particular style to case (copy).
So that's it, sorry it is short but it's just the start..... The start
of a new year and a new me, but be Warned....... I'll be back! (as soon as I can).
Take care of yourselves and your families (they are so precious).
Big Hugs Linda xx
