Each New Day is a Blessing and so is BLOGGING!

Hello lovely bloggers,

Thanks so much for all the sweet comments on my last posts. Feels good to be back even though I am missing all that good food and love of friends and family.

This is a card I made to sell - however I gave it away to one of my mum's friends and she loved it.


Base card stock - metallic silver grey 
Stamp - Spellbinders
Woven ribbon - from the ribbon store close by to where we live
Organza ribbon - from stash
Crystals - Prima

Am going to enter this card into MIM (Make It Monday) - Anything Goes which is one of my fave challenge blogs. It was one of the first challenge blogs I discovered and the lady who runs it (Michelle) is one of the sweetest people in blogland. She helped me so much when I was a newbie... with how to link up a card to a challenge. Thank you, Michelle!

Have a great week ahead.

Hi Monica,
Welcome back to blogging :) I've been away for a bit due to a death in the family, so trying to make the rounds and catch up. I love the beautiful color of this card and the sentiment is lovely. Elegant as always and I'm sure she loved that you gave it to her!
