By The Cute and Girly - May

Hi girls. Thank you for calling in on my blog again. I am afraid that I am not being a very good blogger at the minute. I can't last long in the craftroom before I get tired and I have little or no energy. I am still regularly attending the doctor for blood tests to determine the warfarin levels I should be on but the results are very erratic and it is proving very difficult to settle things down. The doctor reckons it is due to the fact that I have been on antibiotics for a while. I just hope it settles down soon. I am looking at blogs but leaving very few comments - I have just so little energy.
This card took forever to make and is for the By the Cute and Girly Challenge where the theme is "Anything Goes". I have inked up Magnolia's "Midsummer dancing Tilda" and coloured her using a mixture of Promarkers and Copics. The papers are by MME, Rayher and Stampin Up and the flowers are by Wild Orchid. I used Martha Stewart punches for the borders and the leaves and the buttons and twine are from my stash.
I hope you like this card and would love your views on it if you have time. I hope you have a great day and above all stay safe and healthy.
