A challenge for me!

Hello bloggy friends

Just to prove that I'm still here and not swanned off to pastures new I'm going to share a card with you!  A card, I hear you cry, never where did you find the time!  Here and there over the last few days I snuck in cardmaking! I've actually been sneaking in a fair bit of cardmaking because as well as this card I needed a birthday card for today, two cards for next Tuesday and then there are three off to school cards I've to make before next Friday.  Phew, look at that list - I really am going to have to work hard to get those out.

Anyway here is the card I made over the last couple of days.  A Challenge in more ways than one - finding the time, an A4 card and deciding what to do!

The image is a Mo Manning digi stamp - Bunches, re-sized to suit the size of the card, coloured with my Prismas and (surprise, surprise!) a bit of stickles for glitterficiation.
I inked the edges of the image with a Distress Ink pad, mounted onto patterned paper then pearl card then onto a Martha Stewart punched piece of pearl card.
The papers were free with a magazine and the sentiment printed on the computer then cut with a Shapeabilities. (Think I've gone haywire with the spelling there).

So this is just a quick post as I've got all those cards to make, am trying to keep up with everyone's blogs but apologies if I've not been commenting as much - it's due to lack of time not lack of enthusiasm.  Things will return to normal in two weeks when 'big school' starts - I'm already stocking up on the tissues for the crying I know I'm going to do.

Keep well,

Hi Sarah, beautiful card, youve sized that image perfectly. And coloured it wonderfully too. Youll be fine when 'big school' starts, I've been there once already and she just swaned off into school without a backward glance! Me? A blubbering reck! And Ive got another 2 to go!!
