January 2011, full of challenges and full on joy!

I'm back!

It has been weird not to post here for months! Life's been busy and messy, very usual and normal in this household. To be honest, I've actually done some work! I have had few business cards and leaflet orders, which includes designing of course, which I'm very pleased. Feedback as well has been excellent. Awww... I love this stuff.

We do not have PS 3, neither Bluray Player, but I have new card making stuff. (Stuff is my favourite word.) There is this store in Leeds, I've been praising about, this is their blog: Samuel Taylors . Personal, warm, friendly and professional customer service and HUGE range of products. I.e. my favourite place to be. And they know it. :D

This "Thank you" card is my first step back to blogging with crafting. Or crafting with blogging ;) 
Metal blue card stock is from a stock I bought ages ago from somewhere
satin ribbon is cream color and been in my posession for months
decoupage is... can't remember where from
frame / die cut / thank you banner is Nellie's Multiframe (Samuel Taylors sell them)
sentiment is Anita's
vellum bird is Paper Pizazz
that thingy with gold/white "pearls" is from discount store

PS. Good idea to clean your "I might need this piece of card" is to turn it to die cut. I've loads now!
