Yay, back to blogging!

I've been such a bad blogger and am so sorry I've not been around to visit. Hopefully I'm getting back on track and made this quick card for my BIL who's birthday was last week. Yes, he is better known as Uncle Dippy to the children.

This is my new Ian from TGF, fresh out of his wrapper. Coloured with Copics and Lyra polycolour Pencils. The papers are BG and tiles are papermania. Quite a simple card, but time was limited today.
This card fits into at least 4 challenges which are Crafty Cardmakers, The Pink Elephant, Sassy Designs, Charisma, Cards for Men and Crazy4Challenges.
My poor blog has been so neglected I been wanting to post for days now.
Still getting used to the new camera. I'm sure I can improve the quality but a major improvement on the old one so am happy for the moment.
Hoping to do some blog hoping this evening and hopefully my mojo will return sooner rather than later and be back in full swing.
