Back to Crafting

Well I'm back into crafting again after what has been a really horrible time, thank you to those who left comments I do appreciate it. My Mojo up and went away; I thought for good but last week I managed to settle in my craft room long enough to make this card, after not crafting for almost a month I was certainly out of practice and threw lots of attempts in the bin!!!! (lol); eventually coming up with this card, which I am really pleased with and using my all time favourite stamp set Winter Post; I just love it :-) . I also used the fabulous new DSPaper Bella Bleu - yes I managed to cut into it but have also stroked it a lot!!!!!! and the New Eyelet Border Punch which is so lovely. Hope you like it.
After I had made the card I went over and checked out some challenge blogs and have entered this card in the Tanda Challenge "Winter Sport".
