pppppuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrr.......

Good morning everyone are you all well, there is loads of sniffling and coughing going around so I hope you haven't got the lurgy...I had one of those klutz days yesterday, you know the days when everything you do goes wrong and you cant even walk in a straight line...I fell up the stairs (now what sort of klutz falls up stairs) and whacked my elbow so hard I couldn't feel my arm for an hour and no amount of swearing or rubbing helped at all lol, then I caught what was left of the cuff of my fav creating top and ripped it till there was only a seam holding it on, I'm going to have to give up and throw it away aren't I, there will be tears that day I tell you, plus when I caught my cuff I had a cup of coffee in my other hand and it went all over me, yucky...I gave up after that and huddled on the sofa with a hot water bottle and a packet of biscuits watching rubbish daytime TV waiting for the roof to fall in...I can do without days like that but they do make me laugh when I think about them later, so every cloud has a silver lining...my card for today is using this fantastic Kraftin' Kimmie Jayne stamp which is on sale at Bunny Zoe's Crafts for £4.58, bargain isn't she and gorgeous to colour, I used my usual distress inks and paper pieced her dress and bow with the same Prima 6x6 Sparkling Spring paper pad papers as i used for the card, I cut out the edge of one the sheets to make this fab shape and finished with a stunning sparkly chipboard sentiment from a K&Co sheet, I didn't think it needed anything else as the paper is so gorgeous, my cards seem to be getting less and less embellishments on them don't they...I'm entering this for the Anything Goes challenge and the Allsorts challenge

its another preview time before our Sugar Nellie blog hop tomorrow and Saturday...today's preview is on the fabulous Gayles blog, hop on over to the Sugar Nellie blog to read all about it and I will see you at 9 tomorrow for our fab blog hop...Its supermarket day with my lovely Dad today so I will be keeping my arms by my sides and my feet firmly on the ground in case of anymore mishaps...have a safe and brilliantly fun day everyone

Beautiful image and card, Mina! Hope your elbow/arm is feeling better, yikes. Maybe you can create a pillow or little blankie from your torn top to put in your crafting area? And boy, you always do have great stories to tell us, lol. But hope things settle down so you can keep crafting beautiful things...
