Back In The Game.....Yay!!!

Oh how fab it feels to be nearly back to normal. The cold is just about gone now and the leg problem seems to have cleared up. I am having some trouble now with my shoulders and arms but I will not let it get me down......I have had enough of being miserable over the last few months and am determined to grit my teeth and get on with things.
So today I have actually made a card. This one is a special first from a customer at the new shop. It has taken me the best part of the day to make it and the box to go with it because as you know...I hate making baby cards.
The scallop edging has been done using the packaging from my Fancy Pants useful is that?
Twins word has been cut on Jimminy Cricut. The scallop circles are punched as are the flowers and the plain circles and baby faces are Sizzlit die cuts.......thank heaven for punches and diecutters I say!!!
Tomorrow I will post the Blog Candy question. I have most of the prize and just need to add something else which is eluding me at the moment....hopefully something will jump out at me before the closing date.
I promised myself that I would be good and not spend any money on crafty goodies until well into the new year but unfortunately we had a visit from a rep just before Christmas and I was tempted to order the Design Studio for the Cricut plus the Paper Doll cartridge and set of CuttleKids dies. I would have had the Joys Of The Season cartridge too but it was out of hoo!!!
A message for Kim........thank you so much for the Christmas was beautiful. I will try and get time to sit down and write to you this week.
A message for Rosie.....Thank you for your card too.......another beauty.
Right I am off to see if I can finish a couple of projects I started before Christmas.
Bye for now

    Sorry, but I can't help hoping that the poor babies don't actually look like that. lol.

  4. It's a super card, Sheila! (as ever). Glad you're feeling a bit better - don't go overdoing it - pace yourself. I've just seen your blog candy message - am thinking about my answer.
