Hello after a long absence

Hello sweet .bloggers,

It seems such a long while since I blogged and trust me when I say that I have been missing it so.
Life has been rather busy of late with some great challenges which have kept me from blogging. On the good side, Aleeza's arm is healing well and my Mum is here to visit. 

Here is my card to show you - a rather humble card since the rose has been by yours truly with an ordinary paper napkin. The sentiment is hand written and and the flourishes as well as the tag has been die cut from a carton. Recycling and me often strike a happy medium.

I am yearning to come and visit your blogs and I hope I can find time to do that soon,

Hello Lovely Monica. Life gets so busy for everyone and you must do what is important first. I love your gorgeous card and so pleased that Aleeza is on the mend now.
You take care of yourself sweetie, we will catch up later when things are less hectic, but please remember that you are always in my thoughts and prayers.
Lots of love, Sandra xxx

I am glad that Aleeza's arm is mending well and hope things settle down for you soon.

Monica, I swear no one could make a beautiful card like this with just a napkin other than you! You ARE my recycling queen! LOVE it!!! So elegant and beautiful looking. Outstanding card.

Hope you're having a wonderful visit with you mother and so glad to hear Aleeza is doing good.
