It's Been a long time.

Its been a long time since I did any blogging!  I have done an awful lot since the last time.  I went away in my Romahome to Tenby and had a lovely time catching up with old friends and making new.  The weather was a bit dull but it could have been worse. When I got back I did the usual catching up with chores, seeing friends and family and getting my Romahome ready for winter.  Mainly dealing with lots of rust spots.  A very messy job.  Also my daughter was moving again so I went down to see her three weekends running to look after my Granddaughter whilst she packed loads of boxes.  I had a lovely time with Elsie.  She is such fun.  Now I think things will get back to normal and perhaps I can start crafting again.  I started with making the Remembrance card for the The Male Room Challenge and then made a birthday card for my ex. Here is the card I made for him.....

The stamp is from Stamps Away and is a lovely picture.  I did colour it all in with water colour pencils, but the colours dont photograph well.  All the hills and fields are coloured green, honest. I just sponged the background using inks from Stampin' Up and Distress Stormy Sky and various masks to form the background.  I love sponging the backgrounds.  It can be so effective.  I will put Happy Birthday on the inside as I didnt want to spoil the picture by adding it to the front.
I hope to enter more challenges now I up and running again, but I must concentrate on making Christmas cards and presents, then in the New Year I will be focusing on making things for my Daughters wedding, she is getting married in June and I will be very busy making the stationery, table decorations etc. I call myself the Artistic Director of the Maiden/Kirk wedding.!!!!   Should be fun though.  Cant wait.
I have been following your blogs and I must say all your cards are fantastic.  Wish I had your ideas.
Its good to be back. Thanks to everyone for their support, especially my friends Sue and Jacqueline.
