Keeping My Hand In

Hi girls, I really feel as though I have been posted missing because I have been so lax with my blogging this week. We have had a great time with John & Sarah & Jonathan this week. I am tired but blessed. Sarah and I have had a great time cardmaking. Actually Sarah has done a lot of cardmaking nd I have done a lot of watching (and guarding my precious stash - their car will be searched before they go home. Lol). William at 62 has rediscovered his football playing days, albeit in slow motion, with Jonathan.
I am so pleased you have had time to call in. I hope you like this card which represents the sum total on this week's work so far. I have inked up Magnolia's "Honey Tilda" and masked her on to the watering can. She is coloured using my Copics. The paper is My Mind's Eye's "Pretty Please - Polka Dot Orange" and I used some pink card as a mount. The flowers are handmade and everything else is from my stash.
If you have a minute I would love it if you left a comment. I do so love reading them. I appreciate your visit. Have a great day and enjoy your blogging.

    Good to see you doing a little ( the best way) .. keep recovering first, craft second!

  20. Hi Fiona
    So glad you had a lovely time with your family, you need to keep a eye on William though because we can't have your carer out of action too he has far too many duties to consider for that lol. Your card was certainly worth the hours it took you to make it. It beautiful summery colours and a lovely stamp for the season. Take care and no over doing things.
