Hello!


Hello my lovely crafty friends!

I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying life.

First of all I would like to thank those of you who have sent kind wishes to me and my family.
After a few very difficult months I am extremely pleased to say that my daughter is making an excellent recovery. Her strength and determination is amazing and we are so proud of her.

So, thankfully I now have some spare time for crafting. However, I have decided to spend less time blogging so that I can concentrate on the magazine commissions that I am very lucky to be  asked to do. The design teams that I have been part of have been incredibly understanding and I hope to be back to designing regularly for DigiStamp Boutique and Pink Gem Designs soon.

I thought I would share a couple of cards that I made recently for Papercraft Essentials Magazines.
I may share some more magazine commission cards with you soon but I really don't want to bore you with them or for you to think I am boasting at all, I just wanted to update my blog and to let you know what is going on!

Thank you so much for stopping by to look at my blog today. I hope to be back really soon.

Bye for now
