Two challenge card


Hello bloggers, long time no see... sorry about my continued absences, I just have a lot going on in my day to day life and didn't get around to blogging. I missed it thou!
I have received a couple of awards - thanks ladies, it's so nice of you to think of little old me! I'll post proper when I have a little more time, hopefully not too long from now.
I only want to share a card quickly that I made last week but haven't posted.

I am using not one but two of Ruth's new images, I think they go so well together! I coloured with Copics and the background is made with Impressabilities and ink sponged over the raised parts. The sentiment is computer generated and matted onto punched circles and a cricut-cut double-ended tag. The charm and ribbon are from my stash.

I want to enter it to these challenges:
Allsorts Challenge Week 68: New Beginnings - as I have the theme of a new day tht starts with coffee and chocs I hope it counts!

That's it from me for today, hope to see you again, soon!

N.B. Oops, just realised I waited too long to post this and the charm challenge is closed already - doh!

hi there, this is gorgeous,I have also dropped by to say that this will be my final visit to your blog for at least a few months, I am going abroad to get married, and coming back to moving house, settling down before I can come back online. I appreciate your kind comments and your visits to my blog, I will try to update it from time to time, but I can not promise. I will miss blogland, take care and catch up soon, from me - wondering if anyone will miss me in blogland...
