Is it me actually blogging?!!

Helloooooo everyone, anyone still out there?! Lol! I know I have been a dreadful blogger of late and I have missed it too. I think I may just have to drum up some candy for my ever so wonderful followers still paying me a visit during my dreadful prolonged absence!
My health is a bit on the mend now, not fully back to the norm but def nothing worth complaining about and yep the kids are back to school today woo hoo! So it's crafting crazy for me over the next few days before another busy weekend of work and socialising ( listen to me lol! I don't go out much but I'm out both sat and sun eves this wk!)
I have made a card today using this fabulous image from Mos digital pencil. I love her toddler tantrum images as anyone who has ever experienced the terrible 2s (3s or 4s in my sons case!) will too, they are so much fun!

I have followed the sketch over at sweet sketch wednesday this wk and have used papers from Prima sweet fairy collection along with a sentiment from paper pretties. My lace is a bundle I bought this wkend at the market, it all cost me about £6 but I got some lucious lace to play with! My flowers are mulberry crafts with some stickles sparkle for good measure and my sparkly butterfly is e crafts.

I have coloured my image with prisma pencils as per the norm and am still hunting down another set although I can't coerse the hubby into getting them for my birthday (not til Aug) as he has just ordered me a brand new camera as an early pressie instead (woo hoo!)

I am also entering this into Mos challenge pink and girlie, Sarah Hurley things with wings, Crafts 4 eternity anything goes, Papercutz anything goes, Stamp somethings winged things, If the shoe fits wings, Dream valleys flowers and Bling it ons photo insp pink and yellow colours.
I honestly can't thank all of you, my blogging pals, enough for coming by my blog, it is you folks that make all this so much more fun and friendly! I endevour to make up for my poor blogging with some yummy stuff for my friendly supporters!
Please drop by our new challenge blog tomorrow Divas by design for our first ever challenge and the winner to our launch candy!!
Hugs to all
