Back in Blogland!!

Sheesh!! It's so good to be back!!

Nearly 2 months of crafter's block has kept me away, no matter how hard I tried I just couldn't summon up the energy to be creative. I really don't know how on earth some of you manage to create, post & comment daily. There should definately be some form of blog award for the huge committment it takes to run a successful blog.

As for me, I think I'll probably continue at my normal snail's pace until both the kids are at school!! Lol!!

How lucky did I feel when I managed to snag a whole HAnglar & StAnglar kit on ebay last week? And just in time for father's day too, I hope he likes the card I made. I wish I hadn't bothered with the stamping round the edges though, I don't think it looks right! I tried to blend it in a bit with some cinnammon stickles, which you can't really see in the pic, most of it ended up on my fingers!

The papers are BG Archaic, & I have used the MS spooky fence border punch & SU! Heart to Heart punch.

My card is entered for this week's Basic Grey Challenges.


  1. Yay!!
    Welcome back!! And what a comeback. I was getting woried, but this has definitely been worth the wait. He is just stunning & the colouring is fabulous. I just love everything about it. Lucky you getting an H&S kit. I can see it has gone to a loving & very deserving home!! Hope you & your family are all well.
    Big Hugs,
    Andie xx
