Back up and running

Hi
I've not blogged for so long that I've struggled to remember how to do things!!
There has been a lot going on in my life which took president over my crafting but now I'm back.
We have recently moved to Michigan in the US which means I'm no longer working and can spend time looking after my lovely hubby, kids and gorgeous new house! I've also become mum to a little Shih zhu puppy who I love to bits and I think the feeling is mutual since he follows me everywhere - and I mean everywhere!!!

The new house means I now have my own craft room (instead of hijacking the dining room!) which my wonderful hubby has decked out with lots of cupboard space for all my crafty stash.

I have finally got round to using it to create the card below

 




 I've used a craftwork cards scalloped edge card blank. The image is the Hydrangea stamp from Lili of the Valley coloured with Spectrum Noirs. I have also used their paper pad for the backing paper along with some lavender card from my stash. Both the sentiment and the image have been die cut with spellbinders.
 
This card is for our new bank manager who went above and beyond her role to ensure we got our mortgage.
 
Thank you for taking the time to look xxx
