Merry Merry Merry - Craft Mojo DT

Hello!  I'm back at last... apologies for my disappearing act for over a month (!!!), I'll explain at the end of my post.

I've finally made a card... this one is my Craft Mojo DT card, using some gorgeous MFT dies that were released last month.


I cut the 'merry' die in 3 different colours and cut them into strips, then cut again 3 times in brown and pieced everything back together... one of my favourite techniques, it's like doing a jigsaw :o)

Ok... now an attempt to explain where I've been.  If you're on any of my DTs you'll already know, and I've also had some lovely emails from some of my blogging friends... thank you all for thinking of me!  I found a lump, and the doctor found another lump, and I've been having some tests... it's been quite a worrying time, as it didn't appear to be any of the usual 'harmless' types of lump.  Thankfully all tests so far have come back fine, and I now just have a scan to go... hopefully this will be fine too, and then things can start getting back to normal.

I'm sorry I didn't post before, but I just haven't been able to make anything, my mojo fled... and I couldn't seem to make myself blog about it either.  I've now stepped down from all of my DTs except for DigiStamp Boutique and Craft Mojo, in the hope that less pressure will bring back the urge to create... and I thank all my design teams for being so understanding.

So, hopefully this is the start of me getting back into the whole crafting and blogging thing!  Thanks for popping in, and I hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Was thinking of you today and wondering why I hadn't seen any cards pop up from you lately. So stopped into your blog to see what's up and read this! Oh my goodness hunny, I can only imagine the stress and fear you've been feeling these past few weeks. So much love and thoughts of health and healing flooding your way right now! Glad to see you are feeling up to creating again, but take the time you need hunny. Your talents are so magical, we'll all be flooding back for a visit when you are up to more creativity.
