Return of the Prodigal Blogger!!

Published April 16, 2009 by isisimaginings
Yes, it’s me, I have returned. Many apologies for not being here for the last five weeks & for not visiting the blogs I follow, I have a lot of catching up to do. I got bogged down in various issues & couldn’t decide what to do, (I still haven’t solved the problems, but I’m a little less stressed about them now). Then I spent a week in London with my friend, Jen. We had a terrific time & did so much, I will post about it day by day & show you some photos – that I took! Yes, I bought a new camera & took LOTS of pics! Hopefully, some of them will be half decent. 🙂 It seems to be quite a good camera, but the test will be when I photograph my cards, which I haven’t done yet.

Since I got back from London I’ve tried to spend a few hours each day working in the garden. It needs a LOT of work after the winter, but it is so nice to be out there & see lots of green shoots appearing. I have hundreds of daffodils, the tulips are almost open, for the first time my Hellebores have flowered & they are GORGEOUS & there are lots of new Hosta shoots peeping through the soil – now, if I can just protect them from the snails!

For today’s card I have to journey back to the distant past – well, early March! I promised to make cards for the daughters of some of the people on the DC forum & this is one of them. It’s the first time I used a House Mouse image – they are SO cute! I used watercolour pencils & Whispers pens to colour the image & when the cupcake was dry I rubbed glitter glue over the ‘icing’ to make it shiny. It doesn’t show here, but it looked quite good in RL.
That’s it for this post – short, but sweet, lol! The next ones will probably be longer, because tomorrow I will download my London photos & start to tell you about our week. I promise I won’t go into too much detail, otherwise you’ll all be bored to tears! 🙂
Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog since I’ve been gone, I truly appreciate it. Until tomorrow, love & light.
