I'm Back & I'm Behind!!
Hi my Lovelies!! I'm back and I was rested, until I had to climb mount junk mail to get in through my front door (for the benefit of my wonderful followers who don't live in the UK, we have letterboxes in our front doors that the postman pushes our mail through every day! With the result, it piles up on the floor, just inside the front door) . . . you get the picture!
Then, I had to sort through it all and dispose of said junk mail and deal with all the problems that wait to arise just as we leave the house and sits there malevolently awaiting our return!!
It was 03:30, when we finally got to our bed, and then slept until 12:00 on Saturday. Then the fun of switching on the computers, to face a tsunami of e-mails and . . . more junk!! Of course, it had to be sifted through, to ensure I didn't miss anything important! In the end, I just had to scroll down through the headers, to delete on mass anything that didn't look important.
I must thank each and every one of you who still left comments even though you knew I was unable to read them until my return, they were like little diamonds shining in a very large dung heap! They really helped to lighten the task, it was like sifting for gold, every so often I would find another shiny nugget and it would keep me going! I just hope that I will manage to catch up and return your wonderful comments when I visit your blogs . . . though I know that I am bound to miss some/many, if I do, I hope you will forgive me and know that, from now, I will continue to return any comments you kindly leave here.
Enough of the waffle, you have come here to see a card, not me whittling on! This is a piece of colouring I did whilst without internet (all I did every day, was relax in the sun and read a book or do some colouring that I had taken with me).
This card is for one of my sister's and her husband who have just bought a new house. I have carried the outside sentiment to the inside, with the 'new' from the outside sentiment, masked off, and I used my new, Mama Elephant, 'Calli Letters' alphabet and spelled out the word, 'beginnings', so it reads, 'New Home' and inside, 'New Beginnings', which I thought was very apt with the butterfly!
Here is my card.
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know!
