A card for two challenges

I've been a bit of a bad blogger lately. Sorry, but life has got in the way a bit. Also, I've not been in the mood for crafting (awful I know) and had a bit of a confidence crisis. Anyway, I have decided to get back into things and make a card for two challenges. Allsorts are asking for black, white and 1 other colour. I chose red. Over at Sir Stampalot the challenge is punch it. There's a fab prize of a big stash of punches on offer. So, I grabbed the few punches I have - a border one from SU, two scalloped circles and three flower punches and had a play. The stamp is a Tilda I bought a while ago, but don't use very much.

Hi Nikki

Hope you are keeping well.

Think we all have periods when craft is hard and bloggins the same. But a great card here, lovely colour combo, always a smart one.

Thanks for joining in at Allsosts this week and this months Stampalot Challenge, good luck with both.

Hi Nikki

Yes, unfortunately life gets in the way of most of the things we enjoy doing LOL!!!

As Brenda says, I think we all have times when we "slow down" and "struggle" and other times when everything just "happens" without us even really trying.

Looking at your lovely card I think your mojo is well and truly on its way back.

Great colour choices and brilliant use of your punches.

Take care.

Love Jules xx
