Just a Girl

Hi all,

Well finally I have a post, sorry I havent been round for ages things have been hetic around here for the last few months.
Things have also been happening here that have basically left me with no time or inclin to craft anyway.
Well I have finally made a decision regarding things here and I have decided to close my shop, it has been a very disapointing 6 months for sales and things have not gone to plan so after just 2 years I have called it a day.
It has been a very stressfull time for myself and my family but we are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel and the shop should be closed within the next few weeks.
I will continue to teach my cardmaking classes, but other than that have no idea as to what I am going to be doing, hopefully I will get some freelance design work that I used to do before for magazines and stuff. It will also mean that I will have time for non work crafting and I can get crafty and hopefully get my mojo back.

Anyway today is my BF's birthday and there was no way I was going to give her a shop brought card, so I dug my stuff out last night and came up with this card. Its quite simple in design and I havent gone OTT with embellies but I like it. Infact I liked the image and colour combo that much it was my inspiration for this weeks class card.

The image is an old SN Gorjuss Girl and she is my fave, just plain and simple but lovely to colour. I have coloured her with Poly's, I do use PM's too but keep forgetting and leaving them down the shop - I love the difference you get with your colouring by using different mediums.
The flowers are an X-Cut punch and a bit of organza ribbon to finish.

Thanks for popping by my blog today, hopefully this post will be the start of many.

Lyndsey xx
