I have finally made it back in my craft room and I want to share two of the cards that I have made today. The flowers in the top photo have been embossed onto watercolour paper and then using reinkers and a waterbrush I have coloured them in, then cut them out and adhered them with glue dots.
The bottom card is a digital stamp from I Brake for Stamps which I have colored with copics and then cut and adhered to a background made with spellbinders labels 10.
Copper and Brown seem to be my thing at the moment. I have made this card for a dear friend who just got engaged. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Since my last post, I have had an operation on my left hand and wrist which is slowly getting better. This means that I am now able to get back into my craft room. 
  The weather in Sydney has been amazing, with lots of warm sunny days and cool nights to make sleeping comfortable. I have turned into a bit of a lizard basking in the sunshine whilst reading the Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson. What fantastic books! Taking long slow walks around my area has also filled in my time but I am now itching to get stuck into some more craft. 
I trust that other people have been able to enjoy this lovely time of year and hopefully next time I will have something creative to share with you.

Today I start my journey into the world of blogging. I love to look at blogs and be inspired by others on the internet, so hopefully I will, in turn be able to inspire others. May my journey begin......
