Where has the time gone?

Can you believe its been over a year since i last blogged, I'm not making any excuses life just got in the way.
i did pack up my craft things for around 10 months i think i sickened myself with all the wedding invites i had to do, i much prefer to make one of a kind cards i find i monotonous making 60 plus of the same design, i had 3 wedding orders in 2 months so there were a lot of cards to be made.
So what have i been up to?
i celebrated my 40th birthday in January, my dream was to go to New York and guess what it came true my hubby took me for 5 days and it was amazing. It was everything and more that i ever imagined it could be.We would love to go again but this time we would like to take the kids with us.
we've had a lovely family wedding and it was some of the prep for this that gave me itchy fingers to get out all my craft stuff again, can you believe i actually got rid of my craft desk and storage so I've had to purchase more, so now I'm all set up again so I've started creating, here are a couple of cards I've finished this week,
the first image is coloured with pro markers and ive added flowers and lots of subtle glitter which doesn't show up very well on the pic, the red flowers are prima, the leaves are cut on the cricut who gives a hoot cartridge, MME papers and the border is a stamping up punch the sentiment is computer generated.

House mouse image again coloured with promarkers, papers are sassafrass lass, lots of inking, sparkle and buttons

For this card I've used a flower soft image and I've added flower soft and glitter, the sentiment is stamping up, sorry im not sure of the papers.

I promise to not leave it so long next time, i will hopefully get back into the swing of things
