Auld Lang Syne

Hello to all my wonderful crafty pals, thank you all for your comments on my card and hope you excuse my absence. We have been kept far too busy with our wee build and as I am not sure if I missed the Christmas makes I have moved onto the New Year, lol. I got lots of bits die cut and even coloured a lovely image but they would not go together to make a card so I started again with a simpler make. I heat embossed my die cuts as I was feeling cold and did not want to put the heating on as I would be trying to heat the world through our temporary doorway. 
This week started so disappointingly as we failed to get tickets for next Glastonbury, I will be even more gutted if the rumors come true and Bowie is there, I have been a fan since my teens, just a few years we may say!! 
Hopefully I will get some blog commenting done soon as I certainly miss you all, Thank You to all who missed me.  I have not managed to visit any craft shows so hopefully you are all supporting the economy without me. In the wee hours of the morning I would get myself off to sleep with some craft shows on TV but now even the sky dish is down from the wall.
Hope this post doesn't sound wingy, I really don't mean it to be so as I am still enjoying my happy little world. Next task is to help design this roof according to what the planners want us to do. Hoping you are all well and sending hugs to all who need a bit of care. 


  1. Beautiful card Flora. You'll be hoping things get finished before the weather gets any colder. Wrap up well and keep yourself warm. Hugs Rita xxx

  2. Nice to see you back and with a great New Years Card Flora. I don't envy you doing this kind of work in such awful conditions. Today has been particularly cold and windy and in fact we lit one of the woodburners at lunch time. Hope you manage to keep warm - dig out the thermals!! Love from Christine xx

  3. Oh Flora I have missed you and especially your humour, I had to read through the heat embossing twice to make sure I had got it, I'm still laughing at the comment. but seriously, don't be letting youd weather sets in.
    What a shame about Glastonbury, would there be cancellations near the time?

    Lovely card, love your dies and the blue and silver is spectacular. Look after yourself, hugs Kate x

  4. Good evening Flora, glad to see you back if only a flying visit.
    I have missed your little "funnies" but I realize you have to get that build wind and water tight before the winter sets in for real.
    Sorry to hear about not getting your tickets. You might be lucky nearer the time, someone might not be able to go and offer their tickets for sale.
    Have a great weekend

  25. Hi Flora,
    fab card. Great die cuts and colours too. Wonderful embossing also . I love your speal on the embossing heat tool warming you up. I must give it a try, as I don't want to put my heating on yet. Rather put some woolies on instead, then there is more pennies to spend on keeping the crafting suppliers going. lol.
    I wonder you get any time to craft with all your renovations.
    Have a wonderful day.
    Lots of love. Jenny L.
