AnnaBelle Bling & Friday Sketchers Challenges

Hello friends... it has been a while since I posted a card, but my spirit has been so low that I couldn't bring myself to even touch paper.  My dad has not been well and it's been a rather stressful 3 weeks for me. But... I am happy to report that he is looking much better after I visited him last night and although the mojo is a bit dusty, I thought I would try to put a little something together.  Not my best attempt, so please bear with me until I get my creative juices flowing again ...

This little card is based on a sketch over at Friday Sketchers, please pop around and pay them a visit.

My second attempt to get back into the swing of things is based on a lovely sketch over at AnnaBelle Stamps.  Please pay them a visit.

Once again, as per my usual style, I like to give you a little peek of the inside of the card. As the mojo is not back in its full glory, I used C6 size cards instead of my usual square cards.  Must say, I prefer the square, as you have more space to play with.

That's it for now.  Tons of hugs, Sharon

Je kaartjes zijn prachtig!
Wat naar om te horen dat je papa zich niet zo goed voelde. En logisch dat je dan zorgen maakt.
Lieve groet,
