Surprise, Surprise

 As you may have noticed I have been awol for a very long time.  After my holiday last May I found it very difficult to get back into crafting and blogging again.  I eventually managed to get going with the cards for family and a few orders, but couldn't get around to taking pics of the cards and uploading them to my blog.  I was quite surprised to find that it is still functioning.   My New Years Resolution was to get my act together and start blogging again.  So, my card today is a Valentine Card for my best customer to give to his lady love.  I have been making his cards for quite a while now and I am finding it increasingly difficult to come up with new ideas for him.   Whilst searching for an image I came across this digi stamp from Crafty Ann and thought it would be a bit different.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and used CuddlyBuddly papers.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I am entering my card into the Craft Creations Challenge which this week is My Love is like a red, red rose and I hope you like it.
If any my fellow bloggers stumble across my blog and would like to leave me a comment, I would be well chuffed.

  2. Wow Beryl, so nice to see you back again. Let's hope this is the first of many cards and blog posts. Hugs x

  3. Beryl, hello stranger. I couldn't believe it when I saw that a Beryl had posted a comment - I always go and check them out as I had come to the conclusion that I had lost contact as you'd maybe set up another blog. I am sooooo pleased to see you back and posting. It can take time getting back into crafting when you've had a gap but just have some fun first and foremost. Take care and all my best wishes, kym xxx
