Getting back to craft!

Well I'm well and truly on the mend now and went back to craft class at Sunrise Crafts yesterday.  

I really enjoyed making this card and the images are beautiful.  What I loved most though was the frame around the main image and on the insert which is hand-drawn!!  Apparently, this technique was shown by a demonstrator from Indigo Blu the previous weekend.  The card is designed by Bhanu from Sunrise Crafts.  The images and colours go together well don't they?  I love it and I am going to use that framing technique again!!  

It's weird when you've been out of the craft room for some time - I have been going into my craft room and just standing there scratching my head.  All my creativity seem to have done a runner!  Never mind - I know it will all come back soon..... It had better - I have a Mother's Day card to make!.

Anyway, going back to craft class was a great start.

Thanks for looking.  Have a great Friday evening.

It's got me good and proper!

Hi everyone,

Well another week missed at Sunrise Crafts and another week where I haven't been inclined to do any crafting.... 

Here is the lovely card that Bhanu designed at Sunrise Crafts this week.  Thanks June for sending the photo.  It's gorgeous.  I love the trellis die which June tells me is a new Memory Box one.  It's lovely don't you think?  

I desperately want to go in the craft room but when I get in there, I just feel my head go numb and can't get myself together!  I think it is the post-viral problem now which is horrible because I don't have flu anymore and just need to bounce back but that is easier said than done.  To make matters worse, I now have ulcers at the back of my tongue making talking, eating, drinking really painful!  WOE IS ME!!!  This is the week I am going to really get better!  

Well thanks for looking.  I hope to be posting my own picture next week!

Have a wonderful week. Hope you are enjoying this glorious sunshine.

Sneezes and sniffles......

Hey friends!

I've been a bit poorly sick this last week - since last Thursday evening in actual fact so it's been a whole week and time to get better!  I've had flu-type symptoms which laid me up completely for a few days and now my stamina is low!  Still, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and am staring to shake off all those blues - ready to get fighting fit again and get back to things I love......speaking of which, I missed the Thursday afternoon craft class today.  June has sent me a photo of the card made today which is lovely.  Thank you June for taking the time and trouble. And here it is.....

Lovely isn't it?  I love the muted, gentle colours and that frame. Very pretty!  Designed by Bhanu at Sunrise Crafts.   Sorry I missed it Bhanu.  Hope to be there next week.

Thanks for looking.  Hope to be back in the craft room in the next couple of days!
