I am still trying to settle in my new flat it is very hard going especially after living in my other place for nearly 23 years, both James and I are finding it difficult.
I have only just set up my printer and I really hope that I can get back into some sort of routine soon, I feel a bit empty headed at the moment, nothing seems quite real to me but I know that given time it will get better.......I hope.
See you all soon and I do hope that you will come join our challenge.

Stunning card! Lovely image and fabulous colouring. The papers flowers and L/O are all gorgeous!
I'm sure things will get better soon, it's bound to feel a little strange living somewhere different after all those years but hopefully you will soon settle and feel comfortable in your new home.

What a stunner Lorraine, you have displayed your lovely stamp perfectly with those gorgeous flowers. Glad to hear you are all moved in and given time, I am sure you both will settle down nicely. As we get older it doesn't take much to fog up our brains but it will all fall into place soon.

Beautiful card, love all the flowers you added. I hope you settle soon in your new place as you slowly make it your own space.

hi lorraine. good golly girl! every single one of your creations takes my breath away! absolutely gorgeous!. i think we in the USA are hoarders and afraid to put alot of pretties on our cards. especially if we want to mail them... as the P.O. charges and extra stamp for every bump they feel and even more because they have to hand cancel it. no wonder they're in financial trouble. that's the main reason i stopped sending cards overseas.. not because i don't want to but it would cost me alot more than it costs you. go figure!

anyway, thanks for your well wishes on this stupid congestion i have. at least it's only in my head and there's no coughing, wheezing or anything in my chest. now that spring has spurted, it'll turn to my allergies i'm sure. getting old is such fun!

have a wonderful week, my friend and keep these beauties coming! they are a joy to many!

big hugs :)

Stef H said...

the best of luck and much happiness in your new place. things will settle down and you'll be glad for the change!

prayers to you for peace!

hugs :)

brenda said...

What a real beauty Lorraine, so many pretty Spring flowers and your whole card has a lovely light and airy feel to it.

Many thanks for joining us at Penny Black and More and Stamping Sensations challenges this month.

Do hope you soon get settled, it must be so hard after living somewhere for so long.

Oh wow, gorgeous card Lorraine, LOVE your colour theme! Good to see you back crafting :)

Hope you feel settled soon. It is very hard to settle in to a new home...lots of work at the beginning with all the unpacking and organizing of items Once that is over with, the establishing routines part is paramount to enjoying the new place.
We love our home...moved in two years ago and yet I am still working to set new routines. We are just 6 doors away from the grankids, daughter and son-in-law. We try to help out whenever they need us and it does take its toll on setting up new routines!
But we love to help and love the kids etc...so worth it to delay the routines fora bit longer...lol
Beautiful card!!!

Jane Savage said...
