I am back with a card ... at last!

Yoohooo, do you remember me?????? Well it is 1 day short of a month since I posted a card - shocking but true!!!!! Anyway, it is good to be back and actually a little strange. It was so wierd going back in my craft room and I swear I have almost forgotten how to craft!!!

A lady at work has asked me to make a card for her daughter (well, 2 cards actually - other will be posted in a couple of days). She is great to make cards for cos I take a load of images in and she chooses the ones she like - isn't that so much easier than stressing about if they will like what you decide on!

So it came together quite quickly really and I must admit it feels good to be back. Have a busy week with cards this week and then it should hopefully settle into my new slower pace - woohoo. I am going to start trying new styles etc and have a little fun with my cards from now since I stepped down from a couple of DTs. I will love any feedback you have to offer on my new cards but please be nice, lol. Here are a few challenges I managed to fit to this card. Because this card is for a 13 year old girl I have classed this as a new teenager for the 'New' themed challenges - hope this isn't cheating :o)

Lora said...

This is beautiful Marcea!
When I make cards for people I know well, I just ask them what image they want me to use, it really is so much easier than stressing over which one to use and wandering if they will like what I picked!
