Butterfly Mind

 Morning and I needed a card ASAP for my cousin I knew it was her birthday in plenty of time but you know how it goes you get distracted then completely forget!!! Hopefully this will reach her in time but can post as she doesn't do blogging,

 

Thank you for all your comments of concern I am now okay so obviously was just this nasty bug going round thankfully,Helen got discharged from hospital this wek as they are really pleased how she is healing,looks like a bit of nerve damage though on top lip and inside mouth is still sore hindering eating-but just a matter of time.

 

Right onto card ---I used the Butterfly Mind set stamped onto card blank then left uncoloured,then stamped main stamp onto a leftover scrap of paper smooshed with oxide ink,then stamped all the co-ordinating butterflies and coloured with promarkers.

Hark The Christmas Rose

 Morning and I have a Christmas card to share-I stamped Hark the Christmas Rose from Chocolate Baroque onto a distress ink smooshed background,then stamped onto white card and fussy cut the flowers coloured with promarkers,the script borders was also a Chocolate Baroque stamp-distressed and inked all edges

.

Daughter Helen went to a neighbours family firework display on Saturday night and when they were clearing up she slipped on the wet grass and  and fell face down into a fire pit,1st degree burns to her face and nose,2nd degree burns to lips and mouth,but it could have been a lot worse.She has been in a lot of pain today and not feeling well now the shock has worn off.
