I'm Back! :D

Hi everyone!

Long time no bloggy for me! I've been tied up making 100 wedding invitations and 50 evening invitations - they were super detailed so between waiting for supplies (glue taking three weeks to get here, suppliers running out of black card nationwide) and actually making the things, I've literally made about four other cards so far this year, so I'm so happy that they're finally done and dusted and handed over to the happy couple :D SO GLAD I never have to look at them again haha! I've literally been working on them non stop since half-way through January, I handed them over last Thursday, took a few days of relaxation and got back to my desk yesterday and made a card :) When the invites have finally been sent out by the bride and groom I'll share them here then :)

Hope you like it, I haven't coloured anything proper in for sooo long, colouring is a bit rusty haha!

Image - LOTV Maisie Two Balloons
Sentiment - LOTV Sentiment Tags

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
As You Like It - Favourite Stitching (I like stitched ribbon - I don't sew and I haven't got to grips with faux stitching but I do like adding some stitched ribbon to my cards)

Thanks for looking!
