Thank You for Your Sweet Comments

Firstly I would like to thank you dearly for all your sweet comments. It's so nice to hear from some of you that have never left a comment. I don't know about you, but it's kind of nice to know who your audience is.    Besides it gives me the opportunity to visit your blog (if you have one of course) as well. Ultimately it's gratifying that I inspire others.

Since being back from our holiday in Orlando, I have renewed energy to start creating more again. However, getting back into shape and losing some weight is a higher priority. Now that the dust has settled of moving, it's time to get a good routine going so I can fit it all in. I guess I can only start with a positive attitude.

I still had one card to share with you, which I'd already made and sent before our holiday as it was for my brother- and sister-in-law's anniversary.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics | Patterned Paper: Making Memories, Amy Butler | Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug 'Birds & Swirls' | Rub-on Bling: Basic Grey | Rhinestones: KaiserCraft | Tag: newsagent | Clear Stamp: Papertrey Ink 'Mega Mixed Messages', Banana Frog 'It's all about...Hearts' | Ink: Staz'On (Jet Black), VersaColor  (Umber) | Heart punch: Fiskars | Large Scalloped Border Die: Papertrey Ink | Ribbon: Be Inspired | Pin: Fancy Pants | Flower: Prima Marketing

That's a long list of supplies for a card on which I only use paper scraps.

Next Sunday it will be Mother's Day. I made a not so original present for my mum, but I'm pretty sure she'll be very pleased with it. Fingers crossed it will get there on time as it took me until yesterday to finish it and won't be sending it off until tomorrow. Here's a sneak peek... I almost used my entire 'Fly a Kite' from October Afternoon on this little project.

I hope everyone had a restful weekend and ready for another week.
