Cute Card Thursday GDT Cards

Good morning everyone!

Wow, the last two weeks' have just been a blur. I spent 9 days in bed unable to do anything, I don't think I have ever been so ill in my life (although I'm sure I have). I am so blessed to have such a wonderful partner who looked after me so well. I'm not 100% yet but I am getting there.

This is a very late post and I apologise to Cute Card Thursday for not posting these cards at the right time.

I was honoured to be the Guest Designer for Cute Card Thursday for 21st and 28th January. Here are my DT cards. Luckily I had made these before I got ill. I have learnt a valuable lesson about being very well prepared!

Here is my card for the current week where the theme is "Blooming Gorgeous",

and here is my card for last weeks' challenge, with the theme of "Fairy Fantastic",

I can't wait to start visiting all my favourite blogs again. I have missed you and your wonderful creations.

Hugs, Clare xx

These cards are beautiful Clare. I'm relieved to see you again. I was really wondering what had happened to you. I kept checking my blog updates and there was never a new post on your blog. I couldn't think whether you were ill or had an accident or someone in your family was ill or what!!
I'm really pleased you're feeling better even if you're still not 100%.

Take care and keep getting better. Look after yourself.

Like Kat just said, we were wondering where you were....sorry to hear you have been ill, you haven't had much luck lately...I really hope thing's start looking up for you now you've had your share and I bet fill of it all....

Congratulation's on the GDT....really well deserved, the card's you made are beautiful... I love the bright white and yellow one, I would love to use white more, but I mess about with ink's too much...
The stitching is that a new addition?
Your fairy card is gorgeous too, you do such clean cut card's, I love them...

Welcome back Clare...and congrat's again....
