Pretty in Pink - A Card for Crafty Sentiments

Hi Girls. Thank you for visiting and welcome to my blog. If you have been before, welcome back and if this is your first time, I'm glad you dropped in. In either case I hope you like what you find.
I am feeling a wee bit better today and thought I would try to produce a card. As a member of the Crafty Sentiments DT I agree to produce and post a card each Friday on that site. I had Christmas Day and Boxing Day off so I thought I had better make the effort. My hands are still a bit weak and shakey and I think it might show on this card but I hope you like it anyway. I used a Crafty Sentiments image called "Daisy" coloured using Copic Ciaos and one of their sentiments. The papers are both from My Mind's Eye "Flirty" range and are called "Lil Girl" and "Play", and the flowers are from my stash. You can always visit the Crafty Sentiments site to see what other stamps and sentiments are available - I'm sure you won't be disappointed. It would be appreciated if you had time to leave a comment because I get so much from them.
I would like to thank all of you for your concerned comments and e-cards while I have been ill. They have encouraged me greatly and I have been touched by your concern. I am fortunate to have found so many friends.

  15. Such a lovely card Fiona. Sorry I've not commented lately but like you and your hubby i've had a chest infection since before Christmas just starting to feel a bit better and my Mum got taken into hospital with pnumonia so now I'm out in the cold again up and down to hospital. She's responding to treatment so hopefully she will be okay. She's 89 and does really well for her age. I'm glad you're feeling better now so many people have it. Wrap up warm.
