I am here to share with you a card I made 2 nights ago, after receiving some very happy mail from a very thoughtful fellow Demo, Caroline Hallett. I have been going through a tough period over the last 10 months or so, but I have pretty much kept it to myself. It has affected me in ways I never thought it would, such as not really crafting or gardening...pretty much getting by doing things I have to do, rather than want to do. But I have started to try and pull myself out of this slump, and Caroline's little gift gave me a gentle nudge (or great big kick up the bum!) to get back me into my craft room!
She sent me a beautiful, and very unexpected package of the brand new In Colours, so I decided I should make her a card to say 'thank you'. This isn't it! I had intended it to be, but then I wasn't very happy with it, do I have made her another which I will share when she receives it.
I used a sentiment from the sadly retiring Feel Goods, (get it from the retiring sale before it sells out!), the sunburst from Kinda Eclectic, and some of the gorgeous new Peekaboo Peach Washi Tape. I used Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum for the stamping, two of the yummy new In Colours for 2016/17...aren't they lush?? The Sugarplum goes perfectly with our Rich Razzleberry by the way.....
So I hope this will be the first crafty item of many that I will be showing you in the coming days and weeks.
Thank you for bearing with me through my tough period, and thank you to my wonderful customers who have kept me active as a Demo....I am coming back and I am coming back fighting!!
See you soon!
