no one likes making these...


Good morning everyone I hope your all well and having a brilliant start to the year, I seem to have spent most of it in a haze but at long long last I'm feeling a little bit better...I had a semi normal day yesterday...well I say semi normal I really mean there was no imaginary snow episodes anyway...still having problems with my temperature though...Phil must think its like living with a stripper...one minuet I'm bundled up in loads of layers because I'm freezing then my temperature breaks and off they come one by one...mind the way I look this week cant be that thrilling for him lol...remember a few days ago I said I make some 'stock' cards, the cards I will need for the year for occasions I rarely make cards for, well this is one of them, this could be either a bereavement card or thinking of you couldn't it...I think this amazing Graphic45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe paper pad is stunning, there something about these black, white and gold papers I used that lend themselves to a bereavement card...first I used one of the stamps from the Kaisercraft Clear Stamps - Chanteuse set to stamp my frame in black then added an image from the pad and finished with punched butterflies with pearls at the tip, a black ribbon and bow, a beautiful gold tipped Prima flower and a few more pearls to finish...its not the type of card crafters like to make is it but one we always have too at some stage...everything I used except the ribbon and the pearls is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts (some might be out of stock atm though)...I made the sketch up as I went along but I'm entering this for the Simon Says Stamp challenge, Inky Chicks challenge and the Flutter By Wednesday challenge...right that's me for today, short but at least I'm creating even if not colouring yet but I hope to do that today all being well...I think I have to go out today as we need to restock the fridge but it wont be for long as you never know when that snow will sneak up on me do you lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and keep safe and warm
