Not a Challenge - Just a card

Hi all. Thank you for your visit to my wee blog. I appreciate you calling by and hope you find something to make your visit worthwhile.
I'm afraid I have been stricken with some dreaded lurgi. Hubby and I are both well below par with what seems to be a very bad chest infection. We are sore, sweaty, achey and very lethargic and definitely not good for much at the minute. In fact I have not made a card for the challenge I was going to enter with this post because I could not hold the ruler or crafting knife properly.
However, rather than not post at all, I have put forward this card that I made a little time back at one of Siobhan's classes at Stampaholics in Perth. The design and ideas are all her's although I did make the card. It has her stamp all over it - she is such a wonderful designer. I hope you like it. I am afraid I had to use flash for the photo and it doesn't do the detail on the card justice. Please bear with me as I haven't looked out the detail of the paper, stamps or images - I am so tired.
Do enjoy your crafting.

  4. Hi Fiona,
    I hope you and hubby recover real quick,

    Great card,

  5. Hi Fiona I hope you and hubby feel better soon x What with the snow and the lurghi you must feel dreadful. Love the card it is nice to sometimes just get creative rather than entering a competition x Hugs Pascalex

  6. so sorry to hear you are still feeling unwell - this is a lovely card - save your energy to get well and craft even more!

  7. Awwww Fiona, If I lived nearer I'd be round with the homemade soup. Still a good reason for you and the Hubby to cuddle up in bed and stay there until your feeling a bit better. Do take care love. I clicked on the card for a closer look and Wow I love it, so masculine and rich looking (colours and images).
    Hope your recovery is a speedy one.

  8. Oh dear Fiona, I think you should both take to your bed and hibernate until it passes. I do hope you make a quick recovery especially as you both feel so ill there is nothing worse.
    The card is beautfiul though not your usual style but I still like it and would be perfect for an outdoor male.

  12. I love this Inkadinkadoo set, I picked it up on ebay in Nov but it is sadly still unused, I may go dust it off now, love the rustic colours. Get better soon, hate that you have this cold on top of all your other ailments......snuggle up warm.
