New Graphic 45

Hello to all my lovely blog followers. Sorry it's been so long but I just haven't had my mind on crafting recently. Well that was until the new g45 collections I ordered came lol. I made a stepper card, using the fantastic Voyage to the bottom of the sea collection for this stepper card. It was for the my Jones crafts DT piece. 

Really enjoyed fussy cutting and putting this card together. 
Well for the 1st time in my life I'm now unemployed. And it's been a week today since it was our closure party, which was fantastic. There was quite a few that stayed in the hotel and we had breakfast together the next morning , it was a very emotional week and I'm only just starting to pick myself up, my job had been the biggest part of my life for so long and it feels like I'm a little lost at the moment. I know I'll be ok and there are worst things that can happen and I'm incredibly lucky in so many other ways but for now I'm just going to chill out for a bit and catch up on life's important things. 
Thanks for stopping by have a great weekend, I'll leave you with a couple of photos xxx
