Another beautiful punch by Martha Stewart, thisone is 'Lattice' and it gives such a pretty finish. The roses are a mixture from Tabbycrafts and Wild Orchid crafts and the pretty gem flowers and pin are from Crafty Feeling and the sentiment is by Craftwork cards (also available to purchase from DTDF).

Yoohoo, guess who is back and a little candy news too!

Hi there everyone, I bet you thought I had disappeared for good didn't you. So sorry for my extended absence. As you know I have been busy with University stuff but hopefully that is all out of the way now. My break away from all things crafty has really made me realise how much time I was spending away from Glen and Ryan and so I have sadly stepped down from a couple of challenge blogs. I really enjoyed my time with Crafts & Me and Sweet Pea Stampers and I would like to thank them for having me on their team and for being so understanding about my decision.

I am sure I have made the right decision and have already been enjoying the extra time with my family. I have been left with no mojo what so ever though but I have ventured back into my craft room this afternoon and I am going to get my copics back out and have a play again! Lord only knows if I can remember how to even make a card, it really seems so long sonce I was last here.

I am also going to be putting a little candy together for my birthday next week so pop back on Tuesday for more news about that!

Have a great weekend and it is fab to be back!!!
