Sunday Sketch & Stamp #36 & Sentimental Sundays #19

Hi girls. I stand chastised. Some of you had spotted that I hadn't been quite as chatty in my posts for the last couple of days and asked if everything was OK. Well I have been feeling less than my best but I had hoped I had been less obvious. I am tired but I have little to complain about compaired to many of you out there. So on with the cheerie, chatty face.
I am genuinely pleased to have you visiting and appreciate your time. I hope the effort is rewarded with something that will bring you a smile and maybe even give your mojo a bit of a boost.
I made this card to enter two challenges. Sunday Sketch and Stamp gave a wonderful sketch to follow and Sentimental Sundays had a recipe of 1 Solid Paper, 2 Patterened papers, 3 Embellishments and 1 Sentiment. The papers are from Crafts House' "Sweet Dreams" and Papermania's "Capsule Collection". The 3 embellishments are Ribbo, a bow and Wild Orchid flowers. I inked up Sarah Kay's "Time for Apple Pie" and coloured this little charmer with a mix of Copics and Promarkers. Everything is from my stash.
I hope you like this card because I enjoyed making it. It would be much appreciated if you had a minute to leave a comment to let me know what you think of it and to let me know you've been here. I get so many visits to my blog in a day but far fewer comments. I would love to know who you are so that I can make sure I visit you in return. Thank you for your time and I hope you have a great weekend but above all that you stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,

    Hi to William (-:

  17. Sorry you are not feeling your best Fiona, hopefully it will pass and you'll feel better. Such a sweet card, love how you've placed the flowers. Just beautiful.xx

  18. Really beautiful card again Fiona, a beautiful image and flowers. Sorry to hear your not too good again, I have to say from my visits I can't tell in your posts, your so cheery and positive.
    Thank you for reading my post last night, I wondered if I shouldn't have posted it but the aim was more to my friends to explain and apologize for my fewer visits.

    I can't enter challenges with my DT cards so the only people who seem to visit are my loyal buds.
    If I keep feeling bad I think I better rethink DT work.

    I have added you to my sidebar to try and keep in touch more.

    Take care of you, be back soon
