I'm back online!!!

Oh my goodness, I'm so excited to be back!  Our new router finally turned up today... it was even more exciting than having new crafty goodies delivered lol.  It's been 2 whole weeks with no internet and I've been close to losing it!  Oh I'm so looking forward to visiting all your lovely blogs :o)

I have lots to catch up with on here, but I thought I'd start with one of the cards I've made using a new stamp from Little Claire, called Birdcage - available to pre-order here.


I absolutely love this stamp, and for a change I was really happy with this card - I had to send it to Little Claire as a sample, and it was a struggle to part with it!  I've coloured the image with promarkers, the papers are Papermania capsule collection, with coredinations cardstock.  The big roses are from Wild Orchid, and I think the purple ones were from Joanna Sheen - I've had them for ages though, found them at the back of a drawer. Used a woodware punch for the leaves, MS zigzag punch for the border and added a Craftwork Cards sentiment to finish.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Off to do some online shopping and visit your blogs now... woo hoo, yay!!!
