It's been a long time

It has been a very long time since I last blogged and if I am honest I really miss my little blog!
Ruby is now nearly 3 and a year or so has passed since I have really sat down and crafted properly.
Ruby is due to start nursery at Christmas and I really want to get back into what I love doing because I miss it soo much!
I am starting simple and trying to make cards that fit into the time that I have and that means nothing too fussy!  Ruby and a full time job do not leave much time to spare.  I also forgot to mention Martin who obviously takes up my time.
Over the last couple of weeks I have started to make cards for family birthdays and I am making the most of having a PC at home until my brother's little office is sorted and he will want it back.  I ate blogging from my phone or ipad because it is so frustrating!
Here is a card that I made for my Auntie's Mum.

I have found some old Christmas cards and I thought this image would fit perfect cut to size for the card.  The ribbon is from my stash and is probably years old!

I coloured the image with my Promarkers but I have no idea of the colour combos because it has been so long since I coloured that I just made them up as I went along, but I am really happy with the result.

The pictures are pretty poor but I am very out of practice.  My photo subject lately is my little model Ruby and any photo is a good photo with her.  These are not great but I will try to get better.

I really do hope to start blogging more often, but I just don't want to get too caught up in trying to blog at certain times.  I have just decided to blog when I can and try to visit my favourite blogs and any new ones which I may have missed in my time away!  I have been really stressed and anxious lately so I figured the perfect way to de-stress was to craft!
Hopefully I will be back soon with another post!
