Friday Feature with New Sets!

Hello all, do you remember me!  I haven't blogged here for a couple of months now, or is it a few months, but I hope to say I'm back!  I might give you a bit of a catch up below for those interested :)

To get myself back in to gear I had to go very CAS and keep it entirely simple because I have to say I was very nervous making a card to share after such a long break.  This month at AnnaBelle's we are showcasing two new sets due for release at the end of the month, on each Friday Feature, just to give you plenty of teasers lol!  For mine I used the large background which you can just make out, but click on the image if you'd like to see it close up, it looks a bit like old wallpaper, all be it bright pink!

The Sprinkles are Rhubard in 3mm, 4mm and 6mm along with 0.8mm Twine.  The ink I've used is Memento Rose Bud.

Check out the AnnaBelle blog for another card from the wonderful Tobi using these new sets!

For those of you who follow along on the AnnaBelle blog you may have already read that I kind of lost my mojo, and life was a little full on, so I had to make some changes.  First I needed to do some study to get back in to the workforce then we had a 21st, Christmas and an 18th, so there was just no time for cards!  I hope all of that is about to change as I settle a little more in to routine again.  AnnaBelle Stamps has been a passion and driving force in my life for 4 years, but it just isn't paying it's way, which is why I need to scale things back, move some stock, and make it more of a 'boutique' kind of stamp shop with fewer sets but more examples and samples of how those sets can be used.  We will still have releases but I won't be trying to keep with the 'Jone's' by having one  every month or every second because that just wasn't working for me.  So I hope to be back now creating and enjoying it rather than getting it done because I had too, and I have to say I'm just a bit excited by the whole thing!

Have a wonderful weekend all!!

Hugs for now,
