the post from the irregular blogger

CASE Study inspiration card

hi everyone,

yes, I know I  haven't been around for a long long time, yet again. I have been really busy and unwell and couldn't get my act together to blog. I have been creating but have to be honest and say that I haven't had the motivation to take photos of my cards before selling them at Handmade Canberra. I am going to try and be good from now on and keep up with regular  posts,  lets see what happens.

I kept this card simple focusing on the rub on image and the sentiment that has been computer generated, I drew on the line the birds are resting on. I always love cards with a black base, I think it gives the card a elegant and classic look and hopefully that's what I have achieved with this card.

The challenges I have included-
CAS-ual Fridays-Back to Black
CASE Study-CASE Study #100

Anyway, it was a bit awkward doing this post after such a long break. I am working hard to get organized in my life and hope to be blogging more often. I truly admire bloggers who blog regularly and  hopefully one day I will be the same.

thanks so much for visiting and I look forward to your comments :)
