Friends for life!

Good morning fellow bloggers/friends.

An early morning post for me today lol

It is so nice being back here blogging and crafting again.  I have forgotten how at home I used to feel here, you are all so friendly and make me feel wanted and it's nice to see my work liked too. 

This card is for you all in blog land.  The sentiment says it all.  Friends are a big part of all our lives.  Thank you for not forgetting about me. 

Would love to start being on a DT again , it was so nice creating cards for you all for challenges with certain companies. 

The card I made today was a different version to this tutorial which you can find here :
I couldn't use the bit where you use the dies as unfortunately I sold my grand callibur thinking I may never craft again. I have regretted that ever since!   So I did my own version and used the main card of the tutorial to make my card.

The base of the card is from hunky dory 
The image again I'm afraid I don't know where it is from as its been a while since crafting but it is a digi stamp coloured with pro-markers. 
The sentiment and frames are from hunkydory. 
Embellishments : black feather - Kanban
Brown rose - eBay 
Gold peel offs - create and craft 
Doilies and ribbon - EBay 
Paper flower - Kanban 

I hope you all have a fantastic day and look forward to seeing some of your projects today.

I do apologise for the links but my computer is playing up and can only blog on my iPhone yet for some reason can't link them up with just the names of the blogs to make it tidier like I used to.  Anyone know of any way to do it on an iPhone for the time being please? 
Much appreciated.
