The wanderer returns

OMG!!!!!!!!!  I can't believe how long it's been since I was here last, almost forgot how to upload a post!!!!  Well where do I begin ?  Firstly humungous apologies for not being around for the best part of four months.  It all started back in March when we had an awful ordeal with our eldest son, some of you know what happened but I am glad to say that he is back on track and we are all so very proud of him.  Then I decided to decorate the house from top to bottom......hhhhmmmmm.....big mistake cos we are nowhere near finished.  Plus I've only got and landed myself with doing Art GCSE at work, (working as a Art Technician at a local secondary school) and that has taken up quite a lot of my time lately but I am really enjoying it.

Now I've not made any cards since the end of March, I've got a few to show you from then, so I'll begin with these Magnolia's.

The Prima flower and Martha Stewart order punch can be found at the best online craft store that is Dies To Die For.

I am hoping to get back into the swing of things now and I really must send a massive apology to Tracy over at Dies To Die For for not being much of a DT support also loads of love and huge hugs to her too xxxxxxx.

Rightyho, I will do my best to catch up with all your wonderful blogs, mind you it may take me a while so bare with me.
lots of love and crafty hugs

Hi Vicki

Its nice to see you back in blog land. I saw about your eldest on facebook, glad things are all getting ironed out now :)

Great news on the GCSE Art - I loved Art at school - are you taking the GCSE or are you supporting the students - wasnt sure!

Also - Major decorating then - wow. I dunno how you can do top to bottom in this heat. Hope its not causing too many problems.

Lovely cards. Love Tilda as you know and the colours and layouts are beautiful. Cant wait to see more :)
