Seize the Birthday #3

Hi again everyone.  Sorry for another delay I'm just not dealing with the passing of my Mum as well as I thought I would.  That's all I'm going to say about it.
I thought that getting back into something I love. . . .crafting might be just the ticket and so here is a card I made for a brand new challenge blog Seize the Birthday  
I hope you enjoy it and perhaps you might also swing on over to their blog and join in

That is all I have today for you but will be back tomorrow with a scrapbook layout.
In the meantime. . . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Retro Sketches #44

Happy New Year blogging friends.  I hope 2013 is everything you wished for and more besides.  I am going to be overhauling my blog in a major way and simplifying it so it doesn't take long to load.  I will also be including other things like cooking, preserving and bottling,  art journalling etc. So I hope you stay tuned for those positive changes as they occur.

I didn't come anywhere near my blog in December as my Mum passed away on the 7th Dec and I am still trying to deal with the grief of losing her.  Some days are good others days are really bad. I feel lost without my Mum here she was a major part of my life.  Anyway just wanted to share that now I will get back to my post.

I have chosen Retro Sketches to make a card to start the new year off and it was nice, clean and simple something I need to learn more about. . . .to simplify things more as I said hehehe.
Below is the sketch. . . .

Here is my take on the above sketch. . . .

As I said clean and simple wins the day here lol.  I made this while I was skyping with my bestie Sherry.
Okay that is it until tomorrow when I have another card to share with you all.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
