I'm Back!!!

Hello there!
Finally, I am back in my craft room and creating, yay!! Although it did take me a few attempts to get my mojo flowing again after such a lengthy absence, lol!! All your get well wishes were so heartwarming and I am incredibly touched by your beautiful comments - I truly feel blessed to have you as my blogging friends! :-)
Well, this is my card for the Friday Sketchers challenge over on their blog. It was a very plain and simple sketch this week but I loved how versatile it allowed you to be! This sweet Tilda is one of my RAK images from my very giving friend, Linda. Thank you my friend, she was such a treat to colour in. Talking of treats, I have rewarded myself with some new copic colours and I am having so much fun teaching myself this colouring medium. They are seriously soooo addictive!
I'm posting two photos of my card - the top one is taken indoors and the light is really quite bad and the second one I dashed outside onto the deck (it was #*^% cold!!) and snapped this one. I didn't realise quite how significant the difference was in the colours! And it still doesn't really show how absolutely scrummy the paper is, lol! But hopefully this second card gives you a clearer idea of the true colours.
Onto the card details - my paper is from the new BG Porcelain pack - what paper candy that is! Talk about gorgeous. The rest is pretty straight forward - I used the wooden chair from Magnolia's Summer Chic collection which Tilda is sitting on. The sentiment stamp is a bargain $1.50 from Michaels and the flower is Prima with a gorgeous filigree brad I stumbled upon in one of my favourite craft stores!
Thanks for stopping by today and I thank you all for your patience!! :) I hope the wait was worth it! With my mojo back in full flow I hope I can get back down to my craft room again tonight!
And before I go, sweet Zee passed on this generous award to me! Thanks Zee - your blog makes me smile too! And I will now pass this on to others (in no particular order!!) - Lorraine, Cheryl, Katarina, Marcie, Sam, Debby, Jacqui, Shirley, Dawn and Sue. Thanks for all your inspirational work - I love visiting your blogs and viewing your creations!

Hugs,
Danielle x
