Sorry, long time since I posted, I'm sorry.... But here is why and GDT for Papertake Weekly

Hi guys,

How are you all? I am really sorry I have been a poor blogger recently. My last post was AGES ago. Well I haven't just been bumping, I have been rather poorly. Firstly it was a tummy bug, then some allergic reaction, then asthma, then a cold/flu (in this weather I know!) and then..... I found out I am PREGNANT!!!!!! This was a complete shock to me and my hubby but after the initial shock (well for me, hubby was delighted from the first moment), I am pleased to say I am feeling really excited!!! This will be our first little one and we are really looking forward to it. We had our 12 week scan almost 2 weeks ago and the baby is doing fine. I am so pleased as the doctors were struggling to get me better without harming the baby, but all seems to be OK. Anyway, I could go on forever about the pregnancy but this is a crafting blog so lets get to what I have been up to shall we?

So having not been able to craft for what seems like forever, I was asked to be a GDT for lovely Dawn at Papertake Weekly. I helped Dawn out back in Dec and she asked if I could help again for the month of May. Seeing as I am feeling better I thought, heck why not? Let's get straight back into it right. Here I go waffling again lol, it's obvious I've been away isn't it? I can't stop lol.

So the challenge at Papertake Weekly today is Anything Goes by Lili of the Valley with an added option to use something round. Well you know me, I love LOTV so what better way to return right? I was a little worried the card wouldn't turn out right as I haven't crafted for ages but I am pleased with it.

So, it's our 2nd wedding anniversary 29th May, so I decided to make a card for hubby. This stamp is just perfect for us at the moment, it's called 'Love Grows' by LOTV, seeing as we have a little life growing in me at the moment and it being gardening time here in the UK, I just thought this stamp would be perfect for our anniversary. I have had it a while but never inked it up. The image is coloured with Promarkers, the flowers, corner embellishment and seam binding are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The punch is MS and the round stamp is also LOTV. Oh, almost forgot the DPs are 'Love Letters' by Trimcraft.

So guys, pray that I stay well and hopefully from now on I will be back to me usual crafty self. I am totally behind with my DT work so I better go and catch up. Speak to you all soon.
