I am quietly seeping back into the land of blogging :)

Well, lets say I've had a rough month, been lazy and lethargic and utterly devoid of any interest and energy. Trying to get my act together now though. Thank you so much for words of support, for understanding, for the beautiful cards you sent me - I truly am blessed with marvelous friends!

It shows my level of procrastination that my last post was Whimsy February release and now I am coming back with sneak previews for Whimsy March release. :D

Today we are showing you Meljens stamps for March release and the one I've used is called Little Puddle Duck. It's going toe available at Whimsy Stamps on Wednesday this week.

As always after a long break I have kinda lost my grip on Copics, hopefully a little practice will mend that.:)
Thank you so much for dropping in and I'll be back tomorrow with another sneaky-peaky :)

Hugs

So glad to have you back. You've been missed dear friend. This is an adorable card and fantastic coloring of the image. Love the button rose you've created. Hope you are feeling better. It's good to take a break every so often and it feels so good when you get back to being yourself and doing what you love to do. "Hugs" Carol

Welcome back Annika! I am always thrilled to see your creations and I so totally love the dot technique on this...it is much harder than it looks and is one of my very fave! Great card tonight!

So happy to see you posting again. You had me concerned, my dear. Hope the break has done you good and that you'll be back stronger than ever. I've missed the inspiration you provide and am looking forward to seeing more!

I'm so pleased to "see you again", Annika.
We have all missed you.
Such a gorgeous card you have made here. It gives me a feeling of spring.
Even if it seems to be a looong time till then. This weekend we got a lot of snow. It's no fun !!

Hi Annika!!!!!!! :-D
I'm so glad to hear from you. I've been thinking about you tons and wondering how you were coping. Just take your time and we will be glad to hear from you / see you whenever you are able to face the world.
Such a cute card you've created here. I can imagine how you may be feeling creative- wise. When only a week or so passes without coloring, I look at my tin of pencils with something akin to horror. "What do I do with these???"
Nice to have you back, buddy. :-)
Hugs,
Dorcas

So glad to see you back and I can only imagine how hard it was to pick back up your markers. You've still got it and I am sure that rusty feeling will wear off in no time! Whatever it was you were experiencing sure isn't evident in this adorable card!! Love all the layers and textures!!

How lovely to see you back creating and blogging, Annika. I'm sorry this month has been bad, it's very early days still for you, hopefully the stretch in the evenings and maybe a bit of better weather will help make you feel a little bit better. Take good care of yourself.
