A big hello from chilly old Newcastle, Australia!

I really can't believe that I never get the opportunity to post on here anymore :-(

Things are so busy ... my little home based card making business continues to keep me busy as well as just life in general ... would love it if you come over and check out my Facebook Business page Julie's Handmade Creations ... :-)

My Miss Bella is now 10 years old and has such a crazy busy social life it puts mine to shame lol ...

This is the card I made for her 10th birthday .. She loves anything vintage, pink/green, flowers, lacey & girly ... such a girly girl (I have to say that she takes after me ... I just love pink and green, girly girl and shabby chic/vintage).

Anyway, I thought I would pop it on here and start back with entering some challenges ... I always have the best of intentions and time just passes and passes ... and passes lol.

I've coloured a gorgeous Saturated Canary image called "Thank You" with copics and used some papers from Three Bugs in a Rug "Ellie", distressed and inked the patterned paper and Bella absolutely loved it!

Well I'm off to continue my day ... all those exciting Mum/Wife things like washing, cleaning and thinking about what's for dinner!

I hope you are all keeping well wherever you are and until next time


Papers:  SU! CS, Three Bug in a Rug "Ellie" PP
Stamps:  Saturated Canary "Thank You"
