Finally back!

I am sorry for not updating since Thursday but on Friday I couldn't get into any blogs or the blogspot home page and have only just managed to get back in after resetting my internet even though all other websites still worked. Very strange but nevermind I am back and will have to catch up on everyone's blogs again as well as update mine!

Very sadly my grandad passed away on Saturday night but unknowingly to me he passed at almost the same time that I put my new logo (which I designed to remind me of him and let him live on through my cards) on the back of a card for the first time. I want to say a huge thank you to all the lovely ladies on the do craft forum who have been so thoughtful and supportive since I told them my sad news.
Drawing isn't exactly a talent of mine but I felt it was important that the logo was my own work and after a lot of scribbling out and rubbing out and lots of screwed up paper I was eventually fairly happy with this one so I scanned it into my computer. I hope you like it!

I have also made a few cards but only taken a picture of one so far so I shall upload the others tomorrow. I made this card for a friend who is doing an intensive driving course this week and taking his test at the end of it. I used paper from DCWV spring stack, the brown frame and good luck came with some free papers in a magazine some time ago, I hand drew the car and then attached some ribbons from a cheapy shop with staples.
I hope to catch up with everyone's blogs soon and hope that I don't have any more problems getting into them.
