Wow its been a long time

Morning all I am back but I am taking my return very slowly , I have had a torrid 6 weeks but hopefully things are beginning to look much better (keep your fingers crossed). I didn’t realise how hard it was going to be to get back into crafting, I feel as if I have forgotten everything I knew, I even feel as if I have got to have hours of practise just to get back to my normal standard of colouring, and as for taking pictures !!!! as you will see from the photos below that also needs some work.

It seems fate that the first card I made after 6 weeks should be made using a Lili of the Valley image, they were, after all, my first love.  Todays card is for the new Lilis Little Fairies Challenge which this week has the theme of Anything but a Square.  We have a prize of 3 LOTV stamps on the challenge plus we are looking for 3 new Design Team Members, so I do hope you can come and join us.

My Cousin has just given birth to a lovely little Girl called Megan so I have made this little wall hanging to welcome her to the world.  The Chipboard hearts are available from J & C Creations I painted the chipboard with Pink Sherbert Paint Dabber and then covered front and back with Backing paper from the Papermania Lucy Cornwall paper pack.  The Lili of the Valley image is called “Special delivery”  and has been coloured with Copics.  I have used lots of Punches and Dies to finish the card.

This is short but I hope sweet, but I will improve promise

Hugs to you all
