Hello ... an update and a couple of cards!

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all keeping well, I apologise for being absent for so long!

My eye surgery went well although it did take me much longer to recover that I had expected and my vision is still not as it should be so I am waiting to see what happens next .

I do have some great news to share -  my youngest daughter, Emily, did extremely well with her A levels and was able to get a place at her first choice of university ( Royal Holloway University of London) So her hard work, strength and determination over the last 2 years really paid off, I am so proud of her. She left to start the next exciting chapter of her life on Sunday. Needless to say I am missing her a great deal, we have always been very close. Happily, she  is settling in well and making lots of new friends.

Anyway, I now have a bit more time for blogging! Sadly, I needed to step down from all my Design Team work, except for DigiStamp Boutique, to concentrate on my family and various magazine commissions. Speaking of which, I was lucky enough to be asked by Papercraft Essentials Magazine  to design a set of cards featuring some beautiful floral images from DigiStamp Boutique. The magazine has been published now so I thought I would share a couple of them with you.
Sorry the photos aren't brilliant, I took them in a bit of a rush!

Items Used:
Papers - Craftwork Cards, Daisy Ditsy & Dotty
Dies - Creative Dies Plus Stitched and Pierced Scalloped  Nesting Rectangle 
Die-Namics Stitched Scalloped border
Creative Expressions Cascading Butterflies
Tonic Studio Scalloped Square layering dies
Sentiments - Personal Impressions

Thanks so much for reading though my rambling blog post today, I hope you managed to stay awake!  I intend to have a really big catch up looking through your wonderful blogs at the weekend. If all goes to plan I will be posting fairly regularly again soon.

Bye for now
