Friday Sketchers Challenge



Well I started making this card Monday & was hoping to finish it yesterday but I had a peculiar day yesterday - I've been having problems with my eyes for a lil while but was hoping that they would get better (as you do) but they had got worse the last week so I went & saw the Doctor (who is also a work colleague) before I started work & she sent me to the hospital just to check there was nothing sinister & luckily all was fine so I've just got to go to the Optician to find out what is going on. I had an unexpected afternoon off from work cos the drops they put in your eyes that make it blurry & hard to focus. It was nice (strange but nice) having the time off & it probably did me good having a break from the computer (at work & home lol).

So anyway the card got finished today: I used the Friday Sketchers fab sketch, the stamped image is from the fabulous Whiff of Joy Spring set, which I adore (she is coloured in with distress inks). The papers are from Basic Grey, the flower stamp was free with a magazine & I added Liquid Pearls (I always forget to use these lol), the sentiment is a sticker from Brenda Pinnock & I finished the card off with some punched flowers, gems & a ribbon.
