A Break

I am taking a break from cardmaking. I have so many family issues going on at the moment that I am finding it hard to fulfill my commitments. So... I have resigned from the A Spoon Full Of Sugar and the Cute Card Thursday challenges.
I would like to thank everyone for your wonderful comments and visiting my blog.
