Just a Little Change and a Splash of Colour

Hello there,

Well, as you have probably noticed, I've given my blog a bit of a face lift! I think it looks a lot fresher and I hope that you like it too. I'll keep working on it but I'm always terrified that I might do something that I shouldn't and then it won't work properly!

I have had quite a few new followers join me since my last post so I'd like to welcome you all and say thank you for joining me on my crafting journey.  If you have blogs of your own, then please leave me a comment to let me know so that I can visit you too. :)

As I've been busy making an order for a few of my Christmas ornaments, there hasn't been much going on in the card making department this week but I would like to share a card with you that I made quite recently.  It features one of my favourite silhouette stamps from Inkylicious and the raindrops, and sentiment too.  The stencil that I've used is one that Deby gave me a while back and I really like it in the background of this card:

I hope the rainbow brightens your day a little and I wish you all a very happy day x

You know my thoughts on updating my blog....Thank you so much for finding time to leave such kind comments on my blog. So glad to get it back. Mine needs more work too but leaving it for awhile to get over my recent 'deleting' of my blog! x Such a pretty and effective card today. Yes that background stencil is gorgeous and love how you blended the colours of the inks. All framed beautifully with that pretty silhouette stamp. Your blog is looking fresh and well done you on managing to up date it x Thanks again x

It's a stamp that I always rather like as well Sandra and it looks beautiful against the rainbow background and I think probably white ink.

I know just what you mean about changing the look of your blog, I too am always terrified I will do something that I can't recover, hence apart from the header photo mine has remained pretty much the same for ages.

Very bright and cheerful Sandra! It's beautiful, your raindrops are amazing! It reminds me of one of my favourite quotes

“Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's about learning to dance in the rain.”
