It's been ages....

Just getting slowly back into my crafting the past few months have been a long haul.  First my cat passed away at the beginning of November just as my dad started to become really ill. What with caring for him and my mum the crafting fell to the wayside.  My poor dad suddenly passed away at the beginning of December with the funeral the day before christmas eve.  Then in January I got made redundant after being at a company for nearly 10 years. It was a horrible christmas and it's been a tough few months but despite not wanting to I got told by my partner to go craft, well the first few cards were like I had stepped back a few years!  Not sharing those. Finally feel I got my crafty mind back when I decided to play with some Gorjuss products which I love.  Can never go wrong with those...

The papers are from the Gorjuss 8x8 paper pack neutrals and the gorjuss girl circle from one of the gorjoss topper packs.
The backing to this is the gorjuss flower paper cut with a Spellbinder Stately Circles die. Backed again with a hobbycraft doily edged in Stampin Up! 

The best wishes are  from a hobbycraft sentiment stamp set.

The flowers and candy dot are from the love Petaloo collection purchased from QVC years ago! The lace and bow are also from the gorjuss range and the pink hat pins were from Create & Craft.  All stuck together with hot glue.  The only way to ensure it is not going to move!

I have been crafting more recently, so I  have a few cards to add on so keep an eye out for more this week.
