Morning guys!

You will have seen sadly that I do not have a Sugar Bowl card to share with you today. I have with a heavy heart decided to step down. Sometimes you need to take a step back and reassess your commitments and responsibilities. So what I need right now is a few less deadlines to meet!

Right back at the beginning of blogging Gayle picked me as one of her 'sweeties', so this challenge has been an integral part of my crafting life! I will miss them all! Thank you Gayle for everything over the past year and a half!

So go on take a look at the stunning cards the girls have made this week. And not to mention the fabulous prize of the whole new set of 'Simply Sassy' images and some nestabilities! Sugar Nellie don't do things by half!

But I do have something that I thought I would show you. This is a custom order for a journal from my Folksy shop. The customer chose the colours and the embellishments and I just put it all together!

The image is 'Searching' from Sugar Nellie. She is coloured with prisma pencils with glitter added for the background. The lettering is from an Stampin Up! alphabet set which I hardly use but it was just the perfect size for the journal.
I have now relisted this journal, so it is available for sale again.

So, recently I have been a pretty awful blogger and have just not had the time to come by and say 'Hi'. So I am hoping that with juggling a few things around that I will find time to come by and say 'Hello' once again!

Back soon!

Ahhh Judy.. when I read the heading of your blog this morning my stomach churned and I thought for a moment that you were going to be taking a blogging break!!!

I am very relieved to know that you will still be blogging! I don't know what I would do without my 15 minutes a day looking at my favourite blogs!! I think it's the only thing that keeps me sane!

I really hope that you can re-prioritse things in your life so that you don't ever feel as though crafting is a chore! :)

Lots of love Natasha xx

This is gorgeous Judy. Your customer chose the colours and image and embellies well.

Sorry to hear you've stepped down from the Sugar Bowl DT. Your contributions will be missed but sometimes deadlines can get in the way of enjoying crafting!

A gorgeous journal Judy. Sorry you're leaving SN, but totally understand why. We are just so fortunate that you're still in blogland and that we can view your beautiful creations. Well done on doing an excellent job for SN. hugs Sharon x

what a gorgeous project! :) stunning Judy.

sorry you are stepping down from the Sugar Bowl, but as long as you still keep sharing such wonderful inspiration I can continue getting my 'fix' :) Good luck xx

Paula said...

I shall try commenting for the umpteenth time. Glad you will still be on the main DT but can see you have much on your plate. Love seeing your creations with SN & will always look back with fondness at my first forays into the more artistic stamping when I kept coming across your name. Love seeing your pencil colouring which skill is a huge ambition of mine to acquire. Wishing you success.
