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

Back To My Crochet Flowers

Hi lovely bloggers.  I found a lovely lace shop and some fine crochet cottons.  Been crocheting some flowers, so will let you see them when I get back to the UK.  I´m in an internet cafe, and everything is in Portugese, so having a bit of a problem. The weather has been mixed here in Madeira, but very warm.  We have been watching the enormous cruise ships sail in and out.  I`m really missing my papercrafts and all the blogging, but enjoying the break.  Speak soon.  Miss you all  xx

Missing My Papercrafts

Hi lovely bloggers,  I'm away until the end of May, we're spending some time at our lovely retreat in Madeira.  I'm missing my papercrafting and don't get much chance to blog.  So I'll look forward to seeing all your lovely creations when we get back.  Take care everyone! xxx
