Im awake...just...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and dry, did you see the flooding in Wales, those poor people on holiday camping and in their caravans and the poor locals who will have to endure the cleanup...typical British summertime isn't it...no crafting was done yesterday, I lay on the sofa all day trying to watch back to back Poirot in between the long naps so still not feeling good at all...I fell asleep totally at about 2pm and only woke up when Phil rang me to say he was on his way hone at 7pm I dashed and made this card so apologies it isnt my best, poor little card, I did make the chinese though and when I put the plates in front of us, I just couldn't eat it at all, couple of mouthfuls, watched the Pirates of the Caribbean worlds end then went to bed and straight to sleep again...I think I have been bitten by a sleepy sickness fly lol...so apologies for not hopping to your blogs yet again and for my distinct lack of mojo today but at least I got a card made...right now onto my poor little card lol...the image is of course a Teddy Bea but shes a stamp, its rare I buy magazine but when I saw one with two free Teddybo stamps I couldn't resist could I...I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced her hat, dress and boots with some of these gorgeous embossed papers from the Kaisercraft - Homemade 6"x6" Paper Pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I bought two more Kaisercraft pads this week so you will be seeing them this week sometime (well if my mojo returns or I find it with the dust bunnies under a bed somewhere you will)...I finished with some gingham ribbon and a bow and a family sentiment from the same paper pad, I'm entering this for the Papertake Weekly challenge and the DYSU challenge...you will have to excuse me feeling sorry for myself a bit today as I'm off to bed again to see if I can sleep off whatever I have...if you don't hear from me for days send parcels of craft goodies to revive me (well its worth a try isn't it lol)...take care everyone and have a wonderful Sunday

This is a "rush job"? The coloring is great, layout good, layered ribbon, great colorway...I should be so "rushed"! AND you didn't feel good to boot! Hope that you're feeling a bit better. If not, just go on back to bed and sleep it off!
