I've been a bad blogger!

........there's no excuse for it - apart from spending my time relaxing on holiday, knitting, cleaning the house and reading (amongst other things). In other words, I've allowed lots of other stuff to tear me away from card-making. Now I know that will seem really alien to most of you cardmakers, but I think I needed some time away to re-charge the mojo. Added to which, I can't actually get into my craft room very easily because we're shifting a lot of stuff around in the house since my daughter and grandchildren moved back home. Guess which room has some of the storage things in it? Yep, the craft room.

Anyway, I managed to get the brayer, a couple of stamps and some inks out so that I could make a DT card for this week's Colour Create Challenge. (To be honest, the stamps are new and didn't even make it into the craft room!) The challenge colours have been picked by Mina and they look terrific together. It's LILAC, GREY and WHITE with the optional extra of SNOWFLAKES.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Christmas Inspiration - Birds or Flowers (bird silhouetted against the moon)

Craft 4 Eternity - Anything Goes

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes with the option of something punched (snowflake on the ribbon)

Thanks for looking - and please don't forget to take a peek at the other DT creations,

Sharon xx
