'cough cough' Im not well - Whiff of Joy challenge 86 Janes sketch

Happy Monday everyone...well I'm not very well 'cough cough' do you feel sorry for me, I have a chest infections...its a general condition know as Sod's Law, you know the thing like when you haven't had a holiday in ages then you book one and you get a chest infection or when you drop the bread it always lands butter side down lol....but loads of antibiotics, a hot water bottle, some green tea and I will be sorted, that's why I didn't do any commenting this weekend, I was curled up feeling sorry for myself ' cough cough'...come on now could I have a teeny bit of sympathy here please lol...anyway enough wallowing my card for today is for the Whiff of Joy challenge which is a stunner of a sketch by the fantastically talented Jane, brill sketch Jane...I used this little sweetie I haven't used for ages and coloured her with distress inks, its not the best colouring but will have to do for today though as in case I haven't told you...I'm not well 'cough cough' lol, I teamed her up with some lush Capella paper from Basicgrey, I love this series of paper don't you...I used a thick cream satin ribbon and the sentiments and embellishments are from the Capella stickers sheet...I hope you like it...have a fabulous holiday Monday for all in the UK and everyone have a brilliant Happy Monday

Hi Mina,

I saw your comment on Shirley-Anne's blog. I am a big fan of her cards.

I thought I must hop over to your blog and was so impressed to see this lovely card. The rich ribbon looks lovely - you have made such a neat bow.

And that card has been made inspite of your cough...

I too have a cough... just had a hot tea punch - with Manuka honey, lemon, ginger and ofcourse tea. It works - try it!

Love and wish you are cough - free soon,


Riet said...

So gorgeous papers and the details.

Another wonderful card despite the cough! - sleep always seems to be the best remedy but it is always good to try others, especially like a hot toddy to sooth the throat from all the coughing. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Sarahx
