It's been a long time

x
...since I last posted - my heart wasn't truly into anything after John died - but slowly I am getting back to a 'new' normal. I miss him every single day.
I am lucky to have met so many lovely people through crafting and go to two different classes/get togethers. This is a card I made at Sarahs using a new die - did not think much of it at first but now I think its fab - great for male cards.
So I am entering it into a challenge after many weeks away from blogging and challenging and hope that my oomph is coming back

I will enter it in to the following challenges
sketchsaturday - sketch
inkspirationalchallenge - anything goes
chocolatecoffeecards-autumn-not-halloween.

Its nice to be back xxxx
