Good afternoon

Hi there! Sorry for the lack of posting over here the last couple of weeks. I have been down with a terrible flu that I don't even wish on my worst enemy. I am still not tip top or free of fever but it's so much better than laying in bed with 40 degrees (C) of it. It's down 2 degrees and the splitting heading is still here, but I am on the right track. More than I can say for the rest of the family who has also gotten it now. Anyway, I feel I can't sit up for that long so I better get on with it.

We have a new challenge up over at Crafty Card Makers for you this week and the new challenge is hosted, well by me! I have chosen the theme of "blooming images". That means we want to see your flowers as your central piece of your card. No people, no landscapes, no plants. Just the flowers. I do love my flowers and had a totally different card in mind for this challenge I must say. I had planed to colour and all that fun part for this card but as we/I have been sick so much the last two months I had to do a quicky version of it all. It's so good to have back up supplies from time to time. LoL


Panduro and the Tilda range has two new pads out and I have used the once called Country Escape for my card. If you like a little vintage and some lovely pink, turquoise and creamy colours this is a pad for you. I find it one of their best ever. As there is three pages of everything including the die cut sheets I did a little decopage of my image. Some cutting and that gave me some hight to the card and little life to the image.

For decoration is some more die cuts used as well as pearls, lace, flowers from WOC, a swirl from Prima and some glitter glue from Rangers.

Sponsoring this challenge is Crafts and Me with three digis from their store and a mystery donor is giving away a fabby die set. See more info about this on our challenge blog. I hope you come and join us in this challenge.

Love n hugs
Marie

When I first saw this on the team blog it blew me away. The image is so soft and pretty and suits the lovely feminine design beautifully. I love the little birds in the corner, the lace, the pearls, just about everything really.

Feel better soon hon
