watch out for that sympathy fairy...she will creep up and bite you in the butt...

Good morning everyone, thanks for all your good wishes, I'm feeling loads better, still sore throat but not as bad feeling which makes all the difference doesn't it, I think my day lying around watching bad tv did me the world of good, I'm not sure Phil will agree when he hears my cough though...a word of warning today I forgot to mention that last week I tripped up the stairs and fell with my hand onto the vacuum, I whacked my wrist and boy did it smart, I was fine but it left a big blood blister welt across my palm where I fell across the the vacuum foot...so I was talking to Phil that night and was telling him, although like you hes used to me being a klutz by now, did I get sympathy...er...no lol...his reply 'were you drunk, did you have floppy socks on or did you trip over your jim jams' oh yes ha ha very funny says I...well last night I was chatting on the phone to him and he was telling me he went for a walk across the fields at the farmhouse and tripped, whacked his hand on a stone and grazed him chin....so did I give him sympathy...er...no lol...I said ' were you drunk, did you have floppy socks on etc etc'...see watch out for the sympathy fairy she will bite you on the bum when you least expect it lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this fantastic Chocolate Smile from Mo's Digital Pencil, only the wonderful Mo could draw that smile...I coloured her with distress ink and teamed her up with these amazing papers from the new Echo Park -This and That Charming 6x6 paper pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, gorgeous papers aren't they...fantastic colours...I added a couple of ads from the same paper pad and finished with some buttons, pins and a distressed green gingham ribbon...the lush sketch is from the Fussy and Fancy Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Cute Card Thursday challenge and Really Reasonable Ribbons challenge too...I'm going to see how I am later and might just take a little walk into town, or maybe not as it snowed and hail stoned here yesterday so might just stay in the warm...whatever your up to today remember give sympathy as you never know when you might need it back lol

Rea said...

Sweet card Mina, that smile is adorable. Hope your feeling better, last night I started to feel sick, glands are swollen in my throat, and the whole head thing, (sinus, congestion, allergies) is making me miserable. Our spring came a month early, and the pollen count has been very high. Causes all kinds of health problems for people.

Well you may still have a cough and your wrist may hurt, but you still create like a dream. Fantastic coloring, wish I could be a fly on the wall to see how you manage it!! Finish feeling better 100 % and watch out for those treacherous stairs, they obviously bite! (even more than the sympathy fairy)
LOL,
