We all need fun friends

Hi there .  Welcome .

How awesome  is this ? I have missed blogging . Also missing the visits to other blogs .
Nothing boosts one's morale , lifts one's spirit or encourages one to create more than kind words from another like minded person . Bit like life in general really.

Any way , thank you to those who left comments on my last post . Now you all will be stuck with me for another season ,LOL

Today I am sharing a card using stamps that have not felt the kiss of ink for quite some time . If the sentiment seems  crooked please believe me when I say I did mean for that to be the case . My colouring has indeed suffered from  lack of practice , sad to say . BUT when I am a little disappointed with anything on my creation   I always say to myself that a blind person would be happy to see it .

This time I have used  SU thick  Whisper White  card base with a SU  Chocolate Chip mat.
Again on a layer  thick WW I inked Art Impressions " Girl Friends" set and used one of the sentiments included . On the inside I used another which reads..
" Wishing you a wonderful birthday filled with love and laughter"
 This came from a freebie with a magazine and I thought that it complimented the front of the card very well .
I agonized whether or not to add embellishments and in the end I decided for just 3 enamel drops .

Thank you for calling in .

I may  join in another challenge .

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .

Restart your engines

Hello and welcome to my blog and thank you for actually calling in .Please do let me know that you have been by leaving kind comment and I will surely visit your craft place too .

I am a bit out of practice with this blogging bit as life just got too busy and my mojo left me .I have been card making though , just not sharing except with my craft buddies Sandy and Jane at our get together s . Then  because  I began to miss blog browsing and  commenting, I plan to restart my posting and visiting. I may be at your cyber  place soon  .

To share with you today I have a creation that began with a Cajun Craze  square card base with a layer of Classic garage 6''x6'' DSP .

For the  die cut images , tools and car I used   Garage Gears dies that were bundled with the
SU  stamp set , Geared Up Garage and I coloured with copics .
The dies used for the labels for the   sentiment from the same stamp set , are Stitched Nested Labels Dies from SU .

I have a few masculine cards needed soon so this one will come in handy .

Got to my craft room late tonight so no time for cyber roaming so will catch up with that tomorrow .
Looking forward to checking out what has been going on and what treasured mini works of art have been created in my absence ..

Joining in the TTCRD challenge

Stay safe , stay well , be happy .

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .
