I'm Back!!!!

Hello everyone, I've missed you all & I've missed crafting so much BUT I've had my hip replacement op & I feel like a new woman :o) It's amazing to be pain free & I'm walking everywhere (making up for lost time). I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of blogging hopefully once a week (or at least every couple of weeks) & visiting all your fab blogs.

I thought I'd start with a card I made for a very dear friend :o) It's made using a Lili of the Valley topper (from eBay), various papers from my stash, heart charm, flowers & ribbon (oooh & Glamour Dust) & I made the beaded butterfly to finish it off. 

The challenges:
Creatalicious - Anything Goes (option of inspired by a song - "Happy Birthday")
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes (option of ribbon & pearls)
Crafting With Friends - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Things With Wings
Crafty Ribbons - Sweet Treats


I hope you're having a fantastic weekend & thanks for looking :o) xx

Welcome back Tracey! I'm so pleased to hear you've had a successful operation and you're now pain free, YAY!! Fabulous card. Your friend must have been thrilled to receive this. Cute image with lovely papers and flowers but the star of the show is definitely that handcrafted butterfly you've made, it's so lovely. Glad you're back :). Debra x
