Dreams and wishes

Get me, I made a card!  The new Sugar Nellie kit landed on my door mat a few days ago and yesterday was the first day I felt up to inking up one of these sweeties.  I also had a play with one of the new butterfly border dies from Noor! Design, isn’t it scrumptious??

A close up of Dreams and Wishes – so pretty

The papers are Bildmalarna from Dies to Die For.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid CraftsCottage Rose, 25mm wild rose, cosmos daisy, 20mm rose, 15mm roses.  And I added some pearls to finish it all off.

And a quick update for all those asking, I have received so many emails, phone calls and texts – thank you.  I am now officially booked off work as I am unable to drive till the dizziness is under control.  I’ve had a battery of tests and hope to start getting results of those through tomorrow when I visit the doctor again.  The side effects from one of the drugs are particularly nasty so I am struggling to cope with those as well as everything else but onwards and upwards – hopefully I will start seeing some light at the end of the tunnel soon.  Smile

Wee Sparkle

I managed to get a card done (it only took me 3 days lol).  Man I am struggling with these migraines, they are SO bad and now I have MAV (migraine associated vertigo) so can honestly say I am dizzy.  It’s just awful – I really don’t know what to do with myself.  The doctor booked me off work but I refused (being a hero lol) but now the MAV has kicked in I don’t think I will be able to drive so it looks like I will have to give in – not a happy bunny, I don’t like being off work (scared I’m gonna miss something haha).

Anyhoo, enough moaning and groaning, here’s the card that ended up being a marathon!  The stamp is from the newest Whimsy Stamps release and is called Wee Sparkle, isn’t she just the cutest??  The sentiment is from the Whimsy Friendship Notables 2 set.

I tried a new colour combo for the hair this time – YR24, E53, E51, YR30, and quite like how it turned out.

The papers are Pion Design (love these).  The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, as is the butterfly metal embellishment.  Oh and I used that delish Top Stitching Thread from the Ribbon Girl again – love this stuff.
