I'm back after a long absence

Hello to everyone out in cyber space. I have finally returned to blog again after a long absence. 2010 was a tough year with the loss of both my sister Lynne, Uncle Tom and my father on the 11th October. I am positive about 2011 and what it has to offer. More time to create, more time with family and the opportunity through classes and my blog to share what I love to do.
So here are a few little things that I have been working on over the holdiay period.
This is the card I made for my husband for Valentines this year. I normally don't give a valentines card to him but he has been a huge support to me through 2010 and I wanted to let him know that I think he's pretty special to me. I used stamp n write makers and a waterbrush pen to achieve the effect on the watercolour paper. It takes a while to do it as you have to wait for the paper to dry thoroughly but I love the overall effect. I am right into watercolouring with my markers at the moment so be prepared to see some further projects using this technique.

A simple and quick card to make using that awesome set Vintage Vogue and a punch. Haven't decided who the card is for but it is definitely in male colours so I will pop it away in the drawer for when I need a male thank you card.

A similar style to the previous card but not as nice I don't think without the punched edge.

Well must away and attend to some housework, why can't everything be diposable and then I would have more time to create!

Till next time, happy crafting
