Friday Sketchers #112

Hi girls, thanks for coming in to see me here. I am afraid I didn't manage much blogging yesterday after I got home from hospital. I had expected to be home about 2pm as usual after these procedures but it was in fact after 5pm when I finally got home because the epidural seemed to take a lot longer to wear off but if that means the steroid injection into my spine lasts longer this time I won't be complaining.
I made this card a couple of days ago for Friday Sketchers following their sketch. I used Magnolia's "Tilda with Flowers" and she is coloured using Copics. The butterfly paper is from Papermania and the other is by Basic Grey. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the other bits and pieces are from my stash. I hope you loike this card and that you will find a minute to leave a comment saying what you think. It would be much appreciated.
I will do my best to catch up with comments on your cards today to make up for yesterday.
Stay safe and enjoy your day.
Hugs,

  3. Beautiful job here again Fiona, your colouring fabulous and I love the inking around the nestie...

    My Mom suffer's terrible with her back, she's on morphine and all sorts, she's tried linicane( think I spelt that wrong ) which they feed through a drip over a week but its never really helped in the past, they think she's a lost cause really as they don't know what to do with her now, it really get's her down at times as theres no chance of an operation or anything other than med's....

    She used to enjoy card making with me a few years ago but as she's getting worse she can't sit for long so gave it up

    Hope your feeling better
