I may be back....

Hi everyone, it seems an age since I last posted, so sorry about that however have not been too well all summer!  I was going to start creating again this week however my wonderful hubby has now very kindly passed his manflu onto me lol....
This is a card I made a few months ago and didnt blog though.
It is using a Penny Black Stamp coloured with my copics.
The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch






I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments Challenge - Bows or ribbons
Make it Monday - Anything Goes


Whilst I havent been crafting I have taken up a new hobby which has helped me considerably whilst I have been unwell!  I feel like I must be an old woman or something but am now addicted to knitting lol....
I started at the end of June and here are a few of the projects I have completed..






Sorry for the pictiure heavy post and now for the next part of my challenge to get round to some of your blogs......

Hi Catherine, nice to see you back again! I did wonder what had happened when I realised you hadn't commented for ages.

Sorry to hear you were unwell, but glad that you are on the mend (despite man flu!).

Great knits there - you are much more talented than me. I can't knit at all!!!

Best wishes,
Sarah
