Long time, no speak!!

Woahhh!! Howdy bloggers!! :)

It's been sssssssoooooooo long since I last blogged and I apologise for that!! :)

Hope all is well with you guys!

I've been really busy with college and everything and I havent had time to put all of these pages in my albums!! I really need to get some new albums though because at the moment these are just sitting in a box, gathering dust!! :)

So first things first, time to upload a couple of things I made recently, first up is my little tilda card :)
I was going for a kinda muted colour scheme, for example baby blues, baby pinks, duck egg etc and out of the papers that I have, this card came about :)
The papers I used were free ones that came with a magazine and the flowers, ribbon and dewdrops are from my personal stash :)
The stickles I used are "Fruit Punch" and "Waterfall".

Lastly here is my layout :)
I am really pleased with this layout and I actually love it :)
The blue cloud paper is from Colemans, the pink paper is from Basic Grey.
The blooms, brackets, dewdrops, ribbon and chipboard letters are all from my personal stash.

Uhmm so yeah :) That's all for now I think :)
I'll try to blog later in the week if I have time :)

I hope you like my layout and card :P

Speak soon
