Well here I am, back after 5 long months. Lynne at Craft den has been so patient with me, and still kept me on the design team, and said I could join back in whenever I was ready. I haven't done any crafting at home for so long, I just haven't had any real interest in it. It's strange how you have no interest in something you love so much, when you are going through such a sad time. I am feeling so much stronger now, lots of people said I would. I have the most wonderful family who have helped me through. And I am so ready to move on. I am going to do lots more crafting, I'm going to join Slimming World tommorow, as I have been eating one to many chocolate bars lately ( comfort eating ). And I have asked my lovely Sister Ann to come along with me, so we can support each other.

Anyway this my card for the Bingo Board Challenge, I must admit when Lynne said the theme was Bingo, I thought I would decide to come back this week, what the hell am I going to do for Bingo, and it was a big relief when I found out what it really was. I have done a twisted Easel card, Sarah at Craft Den sent me one for my Birthday, and I loved it. I did the row on the bingo board diagonal which was Punches/die cuts. Flowers, and Lace/ribbons. All of which are my fave things. I do hope you like it. I would just like to say thank you to Lynne for being so patient, and having me back on the team. I am looking forward to working with all the new members of the design team,that have joined while I have been away. Looking forward to seeing all your work. Love Sandra x

  9. Hi Sandra,

    thanks for your sweet reaction on my blog so now I do the "return visit" and have a huge grinn on my face reading that you thought just like I did "BINGO.....what's that????? and why does this happen to me now that I am the GD?". Like crazy I went surfing the net to find a bingocard to download and finally asked Tamara for help because I didn't have a clue what to do, LOL!!!! But the theme is fun and your twisted easelcard is just lovely!

    Greetings from Holland, Irene

    I am feeling alot better than I was but I have been having a nightmare with my asthma and have been so poorly. I nearly ended up in Hospital again, but hopefully it will be a bit better now (fingers crossed). I need to join slimmers world with all these steriods I am on, lol!!
