Many thanks for visiting I do hope that you will come join us for the next two weeks SHAPED CARD challenge.

I am afraid I will not be a regular visitor to blogland for the moment, Jess and I are still trying to settle into our new place, I am spending quite a lot of time with my mum but hope to regain the craft momentum as soon as I feel able, until then I wish you all a very Happy Easter.

I am still trying to settle in my new flat it is very hard going especially after living in my other place for nearly 23 years, both James and I are finding it difficult.
I have only just set up my printer and I really hope that I can get back into some sort of routine soon, I feel a bit empty headed at the moment, nothing seems quite real to me but I know that given time it will get better.......I hope.
See you all soon and I do hope that you will come join our challenge.

Hi all, I am finally back with you, the move to my new place was more stressful than I had anticipated but the help and support from my son, mum and brother was awesome.  I am still trying to find my feet and my stuff, I have a large storage cupboard which is filled with all craft items I was not aware that I had collected so much, I was quite shocked, so no more spending on craft goodies for me, however much I am tempted, lol. 
Unfortunately I missed the start of the new Magnolia Forever Challenge for March so I am posting my DT card today while I have some time.
The challenge theme is
I have used both of these items on my card plus die cuts, flowers and butterflies, I used my Tilda with Daisy stamp, first I stamped the whole image onto the oval then stamped her again, coloured her and cut her out so i could create the 3d effect, I stamped the sentiment and added some pearl flowers, pearl drops and a touch of glitter.

I would like to enter my card in to the following challenges:
