Eclipse Birthday card,,,,

Its been a long time since I've actually posted or made a card....still having health issues but I am feeling better than I was....
I've found it so hard to get back into my craft room after such a long time away from it but having to make a card for a friend hopefully has got my mojo back a little bit...
Sorry about the photograph not being straight...

The background paper I had in my stash and just stamped leaves directly onto the paper before using my large 5cm letter dies (which I got off a that well known auction site very cheap )..the leaves were cut from scraps of left over alcohol ink paper..so a very quick and easy card to make....I think I will be using my new 5cm alphabet dies a lot.

Hope to start visiting some of your blogs as well to see what you've been up to... 

Thanks for popping by

Anne

Well, I too had been thinking that we hadn't seen anything from you for quite a long time, so hope now you are truly on the mend Anne, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with your mojo as this is a beautiful card. The large letters were a great find, also such pretty paper and leaves, and wonderful contrast against the black card. x

Lovely to see you back with us again Anne and I hope you’ll be feeling like yourself again very soon. Your card is stunning. I looked at it and thought that you’d used one of those really expensive cutting machines to make the name. I was thrilled to read how you had made it and will definitely be investing in some of those letter dies. Take care of yourself and I hope to see you again soon. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

How wonderful to see you feeling well enough to make a card & a beautiful one it is. I really love the look of those large letters... wonderful if they sell them here. Guess I should check google & see what he can find. Hope you are well on the road to recovery. Not feeling well is certainly no fun. I miss hearing how you are all doing.
hugs, Janie
