Cough cough cough!

I'm still ill, and feeling quite grumpy about it... my birthday is tomorrow, hubby booked the day off so we could go to the cinema, but at this rate we'll end up going nowhere.

I must have looked rough this morning - hubby actually took the boys to school for me!  To put that into context, I even did the school run when I had pneumonia...

Anyway, I haven't been feeling all that creative, and couldn't face colouring at all, but I did have a little potter about in the craft room and very slowly made a card.



It could have done with a bit more 'stuff' adding, but it took so long just to get to this point, so I gave up!

Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Joanna Sheen
Stamp - Aspects of Design Framies 5 - The Stamp Man
Spellbinders Labels 5 dies
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink (Christmas pressie from MIL)
Digi papers - Raspberry Road
Pearls from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Totally Gorjuss - spotty
Brown Sugar - butterflies
Amusing Challenges - use scissors (I cut around the stamped frame)
Sweet Stamps - anything goes
Inky Chicks - anything goes

Off to carry on feeling sorry for myself (can you tell I'm not very good at being ill? lol)... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

  32. Happy Birthday Lisa. We share birthdays as well as a love of crafting. Not so nice to be feeling poorly today though. Hope you're feeling better soon. You've made a lovely card even although you weren't well and lacking enthusiasm. Must be the time of year as I've yet to put a card together this year. Hope you get pampered tonight.
