I'm back!!!!! with a very colourful Christmas card!!!

I'm back!!!! Can you believe that it's been around 20 months since the last time I blogged (or made a card)....

What happened???  a lot of stuff in my life got on the way and I decided to stop crafting. I got pregnant and I started to feel really ill.... I couldn't concentrate on crafting, or sitting down on my desk to craft. I was part of 3 wonderful Designing teams, which I had to quit. I really enjoyed being part of them, but I got a bit overwhelmed and stressed out, and together with being ill I just couldn't cope.

Last week it was Aisha's first birthday.... I feel like I may have a bit of time for myself from now on and make a card or two while she's napping, in bed or when my lovely husband is at home... Let's see how it goes! but the crafting bug is back !

So as the season requires, I've started with Christmas cards!!! I've made a few already, quite simple without a lot of embellishments or layers as I need to send them on the post. I also want to explore different styles of card making... I love lots of layers and embellishments on my cards, but since starting to craft again I'm obsessed with a more simple look... I guess I'll be making a bit of will depend on my mood!

So this is my first card:

I've used this fun digi from Bugaboo Stamps. I used my Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour it.

Card recipe:
7 x 5 white card base
Pattern paper (freebie from magazine)
Stripy washi tape
Star punched from colour cardstock
Bling on stars
Sentiment is my own creation

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Thank you so much for stopping by. Please feel free to leave a comment if you like my card. Any feedback is very much appreciated!!!!

Until the next time!
