I'm back!

Blimey, it's a while since I was last here!  So long in fact that I had forgotten my password and had to reset the whole thing!  And now that I'm here, I'm trying to remember how to post something on blogger!!!

I haven't been idle - I have been playing around with many different crafts, mainly baking, but recently have rediscovered papercrafting thanks to my lovely boys buying me a Silhouette Portrait machine for Mothers Day.  I just love it so much and it's re-awoken my lust for cutting and sticking!

Despite many attempts at getting my pencils out and playing with my Maggies again, I have finally managed to do it.  I'm suffering with a lousy, stinking cold at the moment and feeling sorry for myself, I tucked myself up on the settee last night and began colouring.  I created this card which I am sharing with two Magnolia challenge blogs.  First up is my lovely 'old' buddies at Midweek Magnolias who's theme is Shaped Cards only,  and also with a brand new Magnolia blog Magnolia Forever who's theme is Anything Goes.

The card shape is one that I created using my Silhouette studio, as is the frame and bow.  The roses were printed onto Core'dinations and "fussy cut" (I need to work out how to do this on my Silhouette!!). I used my old favourite Faber Castell pencils to colour Tilda, but I need to get practising again I think!

I hope you like my card, and I would like to say Thank you for stopping by.  See you soon!
Editing Slightly here - Thank you Sue  for pointing me in the direction of Diva's by Design.  I am going to share my card with them also!
