Surprise!!!! .....Guess who!?

Is there anybody there???
Blimey its been a LOOOOOONG time since I've posted isn't it? Sorry for just dissapearing like that, things just went a bit weird here for a while....

anyway, I don't really need to talk about it, and you don't really want to read about it, so lets leave that where it is and move on...lol!

All that matters is.... I'm BACK!!!!

okay, before I show you some cardage... I'd like to just apologise to a couple of people....
Maria, and the Simply Sassy girls... I feel awful for having to just desert you the way I did, I got the BEST chance ever to join such an AMAZING team, and ended up letting you down... :(
Maria... I know you understand though, and thanks for being so great!

And... Jo, and the Sketch Saturday girls... Sorry for being away for so long....
 Jo, thanks for all your support and understanding, and thanks so much for just being you!
Sketch Saturday is SO important to me, and I love being a part of it, I'm SO pleased to be back!!

So... after all that waffle, here is my DT card for this weeks BRILLIANT sketch from Jo...


Now, I havent made a single card for 5 months, so I am a little out of practice... and me being me, decided to return on a rather tricky sketch.... lol!
but all things considered, I'm fairly pleased with how this turned out!

The gorgeous little Cherry bug is from Tiddlyinks (CUTE!)
She's coloured with promarkers
Most of the papers are from the Echo park Happy Days pad
and... did you notice what I used for the 'happy'? yep... the letters from the title on the front of the pad... CLEVER????
stamped 'birthday' below it, not sure where the stamp came fom...oops
added a few buttons, a bow, a bit of enamel accents, and some doodling (boy have I missed doodling!)
and thats it...

Hope you likey?

we ae sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamp, and thees a MASSIVE $25 up for grabs...
what are you waiting for?...

Thanks for visiting me!! be sure to come back soon... I hope to have some more crafty offerings to show you, AND I have some EXCITING news!!!
