I'm Back In Blog Land!!

Hi lovely bloggers, and many thanks for all your kind messages while I was away.

I've been so busy since we returned from Madeira. When we got home I had three requests for personalised cards needed within a few days.  They were all from really nice people, and I didn't have the heart to say no, so the washing etc has had to wait.  I will take some photo's of all my crochet makes, and some holiday memories and upload them later.

In the mean time...here is just one of the cards I had to make by today.  It was a bit of a rush, so I'm hoping it will be suitable for the recipient.
I used an 8" square (205mmx 205mm) cream card base. Some beautiful swarovski crystals, but they don't show up very well on the photo.  The sentiment was computer generated onto the largest Spellbinders labels twenty die. I made the flower and leaves from basil card stock.  The seam binding is peach, from the Ribbon Girl, and the border punch is Martha Stewart.

I'm now off to make a start on the other cards, but not before visiting a few of my favourite blogs to see what you've all been up to.

I've missed you all xxx

i was so inspired by your card and set to to make one for my sisters 42nd wedding anniversary - alas, it looks nothing like your lovely elegant card - I'll post a photo of it on my blog later this afternoon and will try again to be more 'clean and simple' and 'less is more' - I just have to fill up the gaps!! can't help myself. mary G x
