Long time no see!

Hi everyone, gosh it seems like such a long time since I was on here, but what with the kiddiewinkles going back to school and obviously everything that goes along with that, its been quite hectic. Not sure I'd say things are returning to normal yet as it doesn't feel normal as my youngest has just started 'BIG SCHOOL' (although not full time yet) and it just doesn't feel right, but hey she's loving it so thats the main thing, so I will put on a huge smile and be a brave mummy, yeah right! but at least I managed to hold it together on the first day, although I did go armed with lots of tissues just in case!!!
Well enough of my trials and tribulations, lets move on to my card. This little guy is called 'Pip with Presents' and isnt he just the cutest little chap. I love him to bits and he was really easy to colour. I followed the fabulous sketch over on The Sugar Bowl and look not a flower to be seen and I even managed to get a few buttons on there too!!!
The papers used are from an old pad from Hot off the Press and I'm not kidding you they must be 3 years old at least so about time I used them don't you think and I've even used a bit of dare I say it mirri board on there as well.
Well another piccie showing the front view of my card and lots of stickles and the sentiment is a die cut one from my stash.
Well thats about it from me for tonight. I hope you are all well wherever you are and doing a little of what you love.

Take care.


  1. Your easel card is stunning - no flowers and all ;) I am embellishment challenged so I love your card! :) The shiny red card you used is really eye catching.. Christmas is so perfect for using more shimmer and bling! Love it! Thanks for joining the Sugar Bowl Challenge!

  2. Hi Anne-Marie. Glad your little girl has settled at school and enjoying it so far. Your card is absolutely beautiful. Love the papers and mirror card. Cute image and beautifully coloured. Donna
