Long time no blogging ... I'm sure you thought I'd given up crafting. In truth I haven't been in the craft room for sometime due to health issues which I won't go into.  But I have been sat on the sofa with my crochet hook, I'll post some photos of the finished product soon but here's a sneek preview.

I have managed to venture into the craft room today and create a card, it's taken me all day but I'm glad to be able to do something with glue, card and paper!

With this card I'm entering a few challenges: 

First of all Clearly Besotted's 'Seeing Spots' and as you can see there are more than a few spots to qualify, and I've used Stephanie's beautiful stamp set Butterfly Wishes.

For colour I've taken inspiration from both Color Throwdown and A Passion for Papertrey (if the team wi'll let me get away with the Kraft I've used).

For the design I popped over to Mojo Monday for some well needed layout inspiration, although as you can see I've juggled the layout just a tiny bit.


Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Butterfly Wishes.  Papertrey Ink - Botanical Silhouettes, Polka Dot Basics II
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Whisper White
DSP: SU - Designer Series paper stack
Ink: SU - Tempting Turquoise, Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo. Memento - Tuxedo Black. Versamark
Embellishments: SU Basic Rhinestones

With luck I'll get back into the craftroom sometime soon.

Thanks for visiting
