it's been a while!

It certainly has been a LONG while!  I cannot believe I have been AWOL for almost a year.  I got right back into the crafting before my wedding but then I got married and it's just been a whirlwind since.  I finally dug out my stash this week and gave all my goodies some much required love!  I hope you will all forgive me!

I noticed over on the Sweet Stamping Challenge blog that they are looking for DT members, I would LOVE this.  It would give me a challenge every week and a great excuse to really work on my crafting and help me improve, so this card is especially for this challenge.  

The challenge this week is: NOT Cute

I dug out my Paris stamps which I have never used, I also found some old french script paper that I picked up in Dunelm Mill a few years ago and got to work.  I have added some embellishments, gems, ribbon and flowers.  I also found an Eiffel Tower charm in my embellishment box so I added this too.  I loved creating this card, it's good to be back!

Apologies for the lighting, I ended up putting the final touches to this, this evening in between watching the tennis, so I had to take these in the dark of night.

Much Love
