Long Time Away

I have been quite busy lately, and most of it not making cards! Lots of end of year stuff, including making a dress for my daughter’s senior formal a couple of weeks ago. That involved combining two patterns and a lot of improvising to get the dress she wanted, but after (many) dramas, she was really happy with her dress. So glad we only have one daughter, at least buying a suit for a boy has to be easier (I hope!). Here’s what she looked like:

I do have a few cards to show – this is the first (I have to spread them out over a few days – can’t show them all at once!). This was my swap card for our regional training day last month; I only got time to make about twenty this year, immersed as I was in dressmaking, but I received some lovely cards in return and had a fabulous day.
