It's been a long time

Sorry for my prolonged absence, I have been lacking inspiration on a grand scale, so gave myself a break in the hope that I would be inspired again soon. Work is getting in the way when I do have an idea, & by the time I get home, I'm often too exhausted to do anything much. I'm hoping to get back to blogging on a more regular basis again now though. 
I'm starting to upload the cards I have made over the last few months, nothing fancy, it's been more of a case of "I have to make a card - oh help, what can I do?" lol

I made this card for a very talented cardmaker's 21st, you can find Natalie's inspirational blog here

Gorgeous papers by Bo Bunny (I do love Bo Bunny papers) & I chose these specifically for the door & the keys on them.Strip of musical notes paper from stash, coloured with Distress Inks. Kenny K image coloured with Promarkers. Mat cut with nesties, stamped image cut out with nesties, using "out of the frame" technique, a tutorial can be found here.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts 

Ribbon was given to me by a friend (shoulder ribbon from some clothes she'd bought)
The key is from a necklace I bought in a shop which had a number of keys in it, & I confess they were the only reason I bought the necklace lol.

Must go now as I have to make a card for my nephew - his birthday is tomorrow! (oops)

Tfl, & for any comments you may care to leave

You make some awesome cards! You should really find a way to work less and spend more time making cards, if that's what makes you happy.

Aww, that's so kind of you Bobby. One day I will find a way, but unfortunately it's not possible at the moment. I really appreciate you taking the time to comment too, thank you
