Still around for Monday

Wow !  It is Monday again . Hello everyone , welcome to my room .Thank you so much for calling in to browse my blog .
 Had you noticed that I have not blogged since last Monday? Had you missed me ? Well I tell you all something . I have missed you .
Sorry that I have missed so many comments / visitors but Doug and I have had our Daughter and her family from Queensland with us and although they are staying at a park nearby they have been with us everyday .
I think that I have hugged them all within an inch of their lives . Has been 12 months since last  we were together.
Of course family comes first but hopefully I can get back into the swing of DT duties quickly .
Starting today .

Sharing the card I made for today .

Apart from the pearl bling all material is from SU.
Image is from set , Elebration, SU
So here we go  now , it's time for a new Linky Party at Make it Monday.
Another week gone so congrats to last weeks winners .
And thank you  too, Lisa and MaryJ for taking good care of things while Michelle is having a break .
This week we are sponsored by the wonderful Emma at
Emma's Crafty Store

Emma's store is well worth a visit with a huge variety papers,tools and embellishments

Emma is generously offering a £10 voucher to spend in store (p&p not included).

For this week I have chosen a card from those entries that I had visited .

I liked the way Janice turned  around the sketch that she was following to " make this her own"
Some real inspiring creations to be found on Janice's blog so it's worth a visit .

Now come on I know you have something to share , we love to see your creations however CAS or elaborate .
Don't forget to pop on over to Make it Monday and check out the rest of the DT makes too.
Well that's all for now and as I said Hopefully I'll be on my way to your blog soon .
Cheers for now , catch you soon , Shirley-Anne.
