I'm back....

Hi all! Firstly, my apologies for such a long time between posts. I really should have posted before now, but things have been a little crazy and rather difficult. My beloved Grandma passed away last Saturday after a few weeks in the hospital and I spent a lot of time with her in those last days....both a blessing and a burden.

So, here I am....back in Sydney and ready to get back to *normal life*....LOL!!!

Back before I went away I hosted another swap for Alisa's team, for cards made with new stamps from the Summer Mini Catalogue. For mine I chose Eastern Blooms. I really love this branch image, and although there's heaps of other great flower images in the set, I thought that this branch would look great embossed in white on Rose Red CS....I think I was right :)
CS: Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Rose Red
Ink: VersaMark
Stamps: Eastern Blooms, In the Spotlight
Other: Rose Red 1" double stitched ribbon, 3/4" & 1" Circle Punches, Boho Blossom Punch, White embossing powder

I promise to get back into the swing of things and post regularly again :)

Hope you're having a great day,

Welcome back! I'm sorry about your Grandma. But I'm so glad you had time with her. We didn't get a chance to meet and play when you are up but I'm sure we will get there one day. I sure have missed you in the blogging world.
Love Kirsty
