Bad blogger!

HELLO!!! After a month's break from blogging I'm happy to be back! I had a fabulous few weeks visiting California - wonderful memories with family and friends, and while England was knee deep in snow I was enjoying some much needed winter sun!

Since then I've been trying to catch up with work and admin and moving house, leaving little time for crafting but I'm glad to say everything is calming down now and I'll be back to blogging regularly - I've missed everyone!!

While I was away my dear friend Aimes did an AMAZING job keeping our Papertrey blog going - one of the benefits of her being snowed in for days was that it gave her time to make some FABULOUS cards!! To say thank you I made her this card - which also is my sample for our current 'nature' challenge. Full details of the card is on A Passion for Papertrey.

I also want to thank my lovely blogging friends who sent me birthday cards on Saturday! I had a fabulous weekend and I just loved receiving your stunning creations - thank you for thinking of me *hugs*!!

I hope to be able to visit everyone's blogs later today - I can't wait to catch up all your fabulous creations!

See you soon!
