I'm back!

I'm back! 

Good afternoon everyone! 

First of all I'd like to apologise for my absence from my blog.  I know it's been a while but so much has gone on.
I went back to work only to be signed back off again after 8 weeks due to my hip arthritis and a problem with my shoulder.  I am now waiting for a hip replacement .   

I also have a new puppy called Toby he's 6 mths old now.  He's cross between a collie n husky and he is such a darling.  I had three cats but unfortunately my eldest of 17 yrs thomas died by getting run over. 

Anyway I lost my mojo where crafting was concerned and have only just started to craft again.  Luckily I remembered my blogger passwords lol.   I started colouring about 3 weeks ago n made a kind of box card but for the life of me cannot remember how now lol. If I remember I will post instructions up at a later date. 

The image is a digi stamp but I apologise I can't remember where from.  
I used two patterned doilies, paper , card for the box card, congratulations sentiment , white satin bows and diamanté gems gold peel of borders, and tiny pearl gems . 
The image was coloured in using pro-markers. 

I have missed you all and I really hope you are all well and life has been good to you all. 

I will start going around some of your blogs and saying hi and catching up with what's been going on since I've been away. 

I will be back soon with another project.
All the best and have a lovely evening
Sharon xx 

I'd like to enter these competitions pls with my creation: - Anything goes with a twist of markers 

- Anything  goes

Hi Sharon - so glad to see you back again, it's awful when your mojo goes into hiding, and sooo wonderful when it comes back - there is no doubt that when you can get back into it, it certainly helps with stressful times!!!

This little creation is so beautiful - I recognise the doilies and have some in my stash!!! Great little image and gorgeous embellishments.

Take care, hugs Sue Pxxx

Hello Sharon, good to see you back. You have obviously had a rough time but at least you are" getting there". If ever I asked my cousin how she was she always answered "I'm getting there" and naughty me always wanted to say "where are you going?" I did manage to resist though. Well your mojo is definitely back judging by your card today. Christine xx

Hi honey
I'm so sorry but I did not receive any of your emails otherwise I would of responded asap. I am so sorry to hear you've lost your dad, losing a loved one is like taking away a piece of your heart when they go. Please accept my condolences . I'm here if you ever want to talk.
My mom and sister are very well thank you so much for asking.
I'm sorry I didn't get in touch with you but I was in a bad place , crafting I've noticed once again helps clear the mind.
Well hope you have a great evening honey n don't forget I'm here

Sharon, I hope you have fully recovered from your health problems; it must have been very hard on you and to think of the hip replacement sounds scary to me already but I wish you well and happy nevertheless. It's good to see you creating again and your image with the bling below the gown makes your card even prettier. Thank you for playing along with us at DigiStamps4Joy and we hope to see you again. Good Luck :)
