Oh my goodness I cannot believe I have neglected my poor blog yet again. It is a good job there is no blog police or I would be in serious trouble!
I have excuses a plenty... the pre festive rush was exhausting... the Festive Feast was fabulous and I had a great time. Thanks to everyone who came down to visit that weekend and a special thanks to all the lovely customers. Once that was finished I still had to make the cards for us to send to family and friends and I was busy right up until the night before Christmas.
Christmas was pretty quiet (we like that) and as a family we were rather unwell over Xmas and into the New Year... and health issues have followed us through January and into February...
But these are just excuses. Although the blogging has fallen by the wayside, orders have been coming in and cards have been going out and all is well in the Serendipity world.
So here are a few of the creations for 2013 so far...
Left: A simple all occasions card featuring hand stamped, cut and decoupaged flowers and butterflies

This is just a small selection of cards form the first weeks of 2013...just to prove I have not been as idle as my blog might suggest. If you would like me to make a card for any occasion or for any of the special people in your life then please do get in touch today.
Until next time, take care
