What a busy summer!

I can't believe I haven't posted anything on here since July but life has been SO busy this summer. John and I have been here, there and everywhere visiting people and our suitcase has been a permanent fixture, open on the spare bed, when we have been home ....I've been unpacking, washing, ironing and then packing again so many times!!

Not that I'm complaining, it's been exciting but I must say I'm rather glad we don't have anywhere else to go for the time-being.....I'm a bit of a home-bod at heart and am enjoying the chance to unwind a bit now.

I'm also looking forward to being able to do some creative stuff again soon and made my first card for ages this evening.

I finally gave in and bought a Cuttlebug machine a couple of months ago but am only just getting the chance to really try it out. This card, above, is using the Stylised Flowers embossing folder, also a Style Stone embellished with some wire and stamped with Stazon using part of a Crafty Individuals stamp. The sentiment is from a clear set by Hero Arts - yes, I know I said I hated polymer but Hero Arts have some great ones out now and, in spite of myself, I just couldn't resist.
Well, hey, it's good to be back and I hope there might be someone out there looking in......???
