Hi All-A Two in One

Hello folks sorry but I haven't been around for a couple of days I did manage to visit a few blogs and leave comments but I changed broadband user and had to sort a few things out and a few personal issues as well.  I managed to make this card last night which fits two challenges the first one is Pollycraft  and this is the 'free' digital prints from their website and I think they are just fab, the theme for their challenge is 'Flowers' and must say making this did release a bit of pent up emotion.  I used the free image and backing papers and did some faux stitching on the background paper and flowers.  The blue paper is actually handmade from MIC and I tore the edges for a bit of effect.  The second challenge is a first for me which is Lili of the Valley and their theme is to use the colours Pink, Green and Blue and must say I do like this combo.  I think I will have missed or will miss quite a few of the challenges this week as things are not going to plan for me so I will just have to make do with completing the odd one or two unless I am lucky.

I would also like to say 'Thank You' to Ida and Shirley who have nominated me for some blog awards.  I feel so blessed to have people who think of me when handing out these awards and I know I have said it many times before but I will say it again it gives me the heart to carry on blogging and talking to you my friends I feel quite humble as well.  I say what I feel when leaving my comments on your work and is heartfelt because I know how much time, effort and love is put into each and every creation and when you are feeling not quite 100% or have suffered in some way I also feel for you as I did with Ida.  So thank you once again Ida and Shirley for thinking of me.

Hugs to you all, Lorraine x
