hello Blogging buddies!

No I have not disappeared just been at work most of the time since my last post! Today was my first free day and even then I worked 7-9am getting the young people up and off to school before I could have a craft day with my buddies Elaine and Michelle. We went to Elaines or rather the rented house she is living in since her house fire. The first time we have all 3 been there and what a lovely day we had rounding it off with a deep and meaningful conversation where we all agreed we could do with some Tai Chi in our lives to calm us down and give another outlet for de-stressing.
Anyway heres what I played with today. A new forever friends stamp which I have used to make braks for March - papers ambrosia, image coloured with promarkers. Sentiment pink petticoat punch stampin up.
And the card - another commision from Babs at work a mothers day card for her MIL. Papers freebies with simply cards and papercrafts, lillies stamp from Stampington a Debbie Mumm design, coloured with promarkers and gel pen. Sentiment stamp is from papermania. This is a special stamp as I bought it to represent a significant and life changing turn around involving Lillies. The lillies represent some special people I came to know 2 years ago who have helped me enormously and continue to support me - so i hope you like the card if only for the lily stamp which I love!
Must get down to some challenges but may not make the tag deadline as Im working till Thursday now! On countdown for the craft retreat beginning on Friday - Hopefully I will be able to bring you piccies when its all over
