It's good to be back!

Hello readers, I am back after a long break. Apologies to those who faithfully check on my blog. Due to work and family commitments, I just didn't have time for blogging. I've been feeling terribly guilty for forsaking my blog :( I started out with such good intentions, then life got in the way. My online shop was also causing more work than I anticipated so I have closed it whilst I sort myself out. In any case, blogging is more fun and interactive although I still have to discipline myself and make the time. Today, I've made myself sit down in front of my pc and write so here I am. I promise I will make it a point to visit all my fave blogs which I have been neglecting.

During my break, I 'met' a lovely young lady who just happened to chance upon my blog and commissioned a couple of cards. Here is one of them, which was for her mum's birthday. She wanted some quilling and pastel colours. Bearing in mind that my quilling is a bit rusty, I decided to stick to some simple quilling. Me and quilling have a strange relationship - when I do quill, I enjoy it very much and wonder why I don't do more. When I don't quill for awhile, I think I won't go back to it. I think part of the problem is that I enjoy stamping more and have yet to use many of the stamps in my stash.

I decided on an easel card so it can be displayed and luckily I had some pastel quilling strips in my stash. It turned out really pretty and I had a happy customer. I also made a little box to fit and decorated it with printed paper and ribbon. Hope you enjoy this card. Please leave a comment so I know you've stopped by! Thanks.
