Holy Moly!!!!!!

I'm back from the holiday from hell!!! I don't want to say too much about it cos I'm worried people are gonna stop visiting me soon cos I'm beginning to sound like a right old moaner, but all I'll say is that it was that bad, we were meant to be going away again at the end of the month and I've cancelled it!! And I'm sorry that I just disappeared off the face of the earth, I took my laptop and had every intention of continuing life in blogland as normal but I needed to use a dongle for the first time to access the internet and d'you think I could get it to work, could I 'eck!?! At least I'd taken along some crafty bits, so I was able to do some cardmaking in the evenings - if I hadn't, I think I'd have gone ker-azy!!! Here are a couple of cards I made while I was away - they should've been my DT cards for Shopping Our Stash and Sunday Sketch and Stamp, but of course, without internet access, I missed the challenges ;-(
Image - Pollycraft coloured with promarkers.
Background - Bazzill Basics Kraft card and 'denim pocket' made using cream BB card and Faded Jean DI.
Sentiment - Whimsy stamps.
Other - Baker's Twine and stick on studs from stash.

Image - LOTV watercoloured with distress inks.
Papers - Tilda.
Sentiment - Whimsy stamps.
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Other - Ribbon from Bunny Zoe's and Pearls from stash.

I hope you like my cards and I hope you've missed me - even a teeny bit!! I'll try and catch up with you all as much as I can over the next couple of days and will get myself back on track this week. Thanks for bearing with me - I really do appreciate each and every one of my blogland friends. See you
