Such a long time

Hello dear friends. I am finally back again. Seems like I'm always trying to catch up with everything. It has been two very long weeks in my life. First got the big bad flu, and to top it off I got a really bad ear infection that made on of my ears bleed for more than a week. And it kept doing it even if I took my antibiotics like a good gal. :) Tomorrow I have to call the doctor again as it's still painful. Even if the ear hurts like crazy even after almost two weeks, I feel better. How great isn't that?

I have the big challenge week ahead of me now but I thought I would pop in a card that I made last night, and I mean night, as I couldn't sleep before 05,30 this morning. I found some left over paper (from Panduro) laying around and I was not really sure what to do with them, but realized that I need to try to make different shaped cards as I have made very few of those. The thing is I don't have any big dies for this, so this card is a mini version, but hey, it works.

I played around with some round dies from Sizzx this time and used up those scrap pieces. I added some lace to a black piece of dp and got that across the card, that way I got a little more space to add some embellishments. The image is from Sugar Nellie and I love how she turned out. She is coloured with my Letraset family and some tiny strokes of Prisma pencils to add a little shadowing.

I had such blast making up the flowers for this card. There is plenty of them and I played with some pearl strings as well, and these gave some hight to it all. Some lace, a tiny feather and other flower embellishments is added to the mix. The butterfly charm is from my dear friend Annelie. Thanks! It's perfect here. :) Anyway, thanks for looking, see you back tomorrow.

Love n hugs
