Monday again

Hello you! It's Monday again and the week didn't start as planed. Have my youngest at home today as he had tummy ache and was feeling really sad. I should have been at a seminar and listen to a woman that talked about fibromyalgia and how to get back to working life again. I missed it last time because I had to go to the dentist and now this, but today it was more important to spend the day with P. He is really feeling better now and went out in the sun for a while. That is good to see.

And now over to something completely different. A new card from me. I must warn you as it's not a very good looking card and the photo is even worse, but I needed to get the card done and it was a bit late in the afternoon while I managed to finish and take the photo. My photo skills has not really improved have they? I still plan to learn more about it, but other things feels more important at the moment. :)


Anyway, it's a new Magnolia card from me and this time it's featuring Tennis Edwin. One of my brothers had his birthday last week and as he is a keen tennis player, I just needed to buy this stamp. :) I went monochrome with this card as it's fun to colour in grey scale colours every now and then. I do love my warm grey Letraset markers. No designer papers for this card, only the use of card stock in three colours; White, black and grey. Using some embossing folders to get some "life" into the card. Decorations is card candi in two different sizes.

Better go and check out what you Mr P is doing. He was talking about using some tools...

Love n hugs
Marie
