Hi everyone I hope you are all well :O) my poor blog has been so neglected, furthermore my visiting has been even worse, huge apologies, I just dont know where my cardmaking skills have gone, I sat today to make one and well I dont like it!I am only blogging it though to show I am trying! Think I need to sit at me desk for hours and fiddle, my mojo is lost lost lost! :O(

This card is for the challenge over on A Spoonful of Sugar which is "Christmas" yay I love Christmas, cept the cardmaking part of it I am nowhere near on target :O( grrrrrrrr

I used this PB stamp and coloured it with promarkers, the stars I cut from a bit of ribbon, and the papers are various from my stash which is shrinking rapidly :O I so need a spree!

Very Basic I know, but I dont know where to start picking up the bug from!

Thanks for stopping by and

Don't be too hard on yourself Joey, it is a beautiful card. And you have more of an excuse than some. Take care of yourself and your little brood.

Hi Joey,
For how much the opinion of a relative novice counts, I think this card is really cute. A lovely Christmas message and a gorgeous image. Hang in, the mojo is there, you are probably being a bit hard on yourself. I for one am glad your back.

Not basic at all Joey, its gorgeous, those shades are very stunning and perfect for the manger stamp! You are at a very busy time in your life, it will all slow down again in, well about 20 year lol. Only kidding, just take it a day at a time.
