I'm back! And there's still time...


Hello everyone, long time no see.

In fact its been so long I've almost forgotten how to use blogger!

We had an unexpected and unwelcome change of circumstances here at home so my artwork had to take a sidestep, then it was time to take a long overdue holiday we'd booked a little while ago in Florida. The weather was beautiful and it was so good to change routine while it lasted. Maybe one day I'll make it back there, I do love it.

But now its time to get creative again. I've spent the last few days moving stamps, paper and ink around the lounge table and have a few bits and bobs to show for it.

Here's the first, the rest to follow asap.




This is my contribution towards the current challenge theme over at Stampotique Originals. I'm a bit late as a DT member with this... but you guys still have a few days left to get your Purple, Pink and Black Stampotique things made.

Check out the challenge here.

My card was made using the fun image Screaming Bunny #2406 from Stampotique's new artist Roc Nicholas and my Daisy Daisy #3002 also at Stampotique.

Wishing you all the good off the world for your home situation.
Checked your blog every now and then, thinking maybe I missed something?
