Stamptacular Sunday #76 & Cutie Sunday #90

Hi girls. Thank you for coming in to see my blog. I hope that what is on offer is to your liking and that it might even help to stimulate your crafting mojo. I'm glad to say that yesterday was a far better day for me healthwise. I feel a bit more human again and if I get no worse I'll be happy. I appreciated all your well wishes over the last few days. It's amazing how much love and concern is out there in blogland. You are a very special bunch and your friendship and concern is valued.
I made this card with three challenges in mind but to my absolute horror it dawned on me after I had finished it that Totally Tilda wanted home made flowers and I used bought flowers on this card. Can yo believe that I passed up a challenge calling for handmade flowers!!!
I am entering this into the Stamptacular Sunday and Cutie Sunday challenges. Stamptacular Sunday gave us a fabulous sketch and Cutie Sunday wanted "Pretty in Pink". The image is Magnolia's "Tilda in Dalcarlia Coat" and she is coloured using my Copic Ciaos. the design papers re Basic Grey's "Green at Heart", SEI's Juliette "First Kiss" and some Bazzil Bling. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and everything else is from my stash.
Stamptacular Sunday are also helping Operation Write Home to enable our serving troups to keep contact with home and If you send you card away you qualify for an opportunity to win an extra prize.
I would appreciate any comments you wish to leave on this card. I value and appreciate anything you have to say about my creations and more importantly It's nice to know who has been visiting - I can then visit back.
Have a great weekend and stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,

  13. Hi Fiona-so sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. I hope you get back to making your own flowers soon!
    Thanks for all the lovely comments you leave on my blog, I am afraid you are so prolific that I don't get to leave comments as often as I would like to. I don't know where the time goes and I still have your award to post and pass on. Off to catch up with the rest of your creations now.

  14. Beautiful card Fiona, love the peachy colours. Gorgeous papers and love how you've framed the image with the pretty flowers.
