Yes, I am here!

Hi, sorry I've been AWOL, but a few days ago I woke up feeling extremely dizzy and couldn't move my head without the room spinning. I spent the next few days doing very little and am only now feeling like I can do some crafting and as Daisy is in kindy I thought I would take advantage. However, I am thinking maybe I should slow down a little bit as I think it is my body's way of saying a heavily pregnant lady should rest more! Babybee is due on Friday but as Daisy kept me waiting for 10 days, I'm ready for a long wait!

Anyway, onto the card. I had fun with this one as I used two blue ink pads and one silver one to make the background (although it is quite difficult to pick out the shades in the photo). I have then used one of my fabby new Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, called Daphne, and paper pieced the dress. The fuschias are from a woodware stamp set and the butterfly is one I got free with a magazine. I'm entering this into Allsorts - create a scene and Crafty Cardmakers -inky fingers.

Yes you should be resting, you need all you can get now because after baby arrives you are going to be oh so busy and need all your energy.

Your card is lovely of course, it has a real magical feel to it.

Thank you for your kind words, I've not visited lately but you do know why and things can ony improve.

Thank you for joining in my create a scene theme this week at Allsorts and good luck.
