A thank you, an apology and finally a card

Hello blogworld

Firstly the thank you, well two thank you's really!  The first one is for the congrats I got for getting the Top 5 at Passion for Promarkers.  You are all very kind and the lovely comments are really appreciated, especially when I sometimes feel a bit my colour lacks something special.

The second thank you is for the comments on my previous cards (the new baby ones) I think it's the most comments I've ever had.  I obviously got something right!!  Or is it that Mo's images are just perfect and a joy to colour.  Oh and some news - my friend had her baby yesterday, a little boy!  So now she has three children under 6 - girls of 5, 3 and a new baby boy!  Doesn't it just sound a perfect little family - I am so pleased for her.

The apology is tied in with the second thank you for my previous cards - I've not managed to get back to any of you yet and for that I am sorry.  Things have been a bit hectic at home with my Father-in-Law staying but he has gone home today, so I've got my comfy chair back and 'puter time in the evenings.  Hopefully I will have caught up by the end of tomorrow.

And finally, (I'm sure by now you must be thinking phew, she has finally stopped wittering on!) a card.  This is for my daughters' friend who has also come down with Chicken Pox.
