Circle Step Card

Good afternoon, peeps!
You know how sometimes you see a card and you think 'Oh, yes- I've GOT to make one of those!'? Well this was one such card. I first saw it here on the lovely Jacquie Dennis's blog who in turn had found it on the talented Marlene Ashby's blog here. So now it's come full circle (groan, groan!) and now you're looking at my effort!

I must say that with 20/20 hindsight (a wonderful thing) I wish that I'd used stronger colours than peach and white but maybe it'll be a good excuse to make another and try again.
Well, I'm glad that Mr Blogger seems to be back to health and behaving himself - it definitely is not good when he goes AWOL! I'll also be glad when I get back to full health because I'm still croaking like a warbling chipmunk but at least I've found the energy to make a card and a blog post. Who knows, I may soon get around to visiting all you lovely people again soon.
Anyhoo, I'll be teaching peeps how to make this little flowery concoction at Samuel Taylor, Brighouse on the 31st of this month but, in the meantime there's another Clarity Stamp show on Create and Craft TV on 5th June for which to prepare cards - lots of work to do with that!

EDIT A friend has emailed me to say that she cannot leave comments on this post. The problem may be Internet Explorer 9 which is apparently incompatible with Blogger. I've changed my web browser to Firefox in the hope of a cure but I'm sorry if anyone else out there is having the same problem.
