Long, long time no post...

Good Morning,
Not sure if I have any followers left as it has been close on a year since my last post - problems with our business took my Mojo away - but I think she has started to come back and I have visited my craft room again :).  Sorry I haven't commented on any of your blogs, I have dropped by occasionally just to see what you are all up to.
Anyway New Year new start and I am going to try and make cards for our close family (of which there are many so my first card is for a lovely lady who is in her 80's - I didn't think she would like a coloured image and I have to admit I have coloured nothing in for over a year, so when I do you will have to be very patient with me as I guess I will be back to square one... lol.


I have treated myself to some new dies and this is one of them - Detailed Scallops by Spellbinders.  There are some amazing new dies coming out and I want them all... LOL, will have to wait though.  Card is a lovely pearl card which I bought a stack of at a craft fair, flowers are WOC, hat pin and ribbon is from my stash. The lilac pearls are from a Viva Pearl pen (love this pen).


I used the same die for the sentiment inside again with the Viva pen to add the pearls - so quick and easy.
I hope you like my card and I hope to post some others very soon.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

You certainly haven't lost it and your mojo has returned with a vengeance. I adore this colour and love everything about your card - you even make sure that the font compliments your design.
