At last my doctor has referred me to the ENT clinic to see if i should get my tonsils out after the last few years with a red raw throat with white spots, ache muscles & having no energy and too many sick days off work ,i will just be glad if i do have to get them out so i can feel better as i have felt like this far too long .
I have made this card for a work colleague who's birthday is coming up very soon .
I have to say i seen this gorgeous digi http://www.digistampboutique.co.uk/catalog/offer-month-sketchy-cherry-blossom-p-803.html on one of my blogging buddies Kerry's cards here http://aloadofoldpickle.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/almost.html and i loved it ! I asked Kerry if it was ok to use her fab idea of adding the pearls which adds a luxury professional finish to the card .
I went into digital designer software matched the square frame with this freebie http://sugarbuttdesigns.com/2013/02/19/freebie-ornate-page-border-overlay-with-example-included/ then added the cherry blossom digi ,coloured it with promarkers which i am not brilliant at but i gave it a go ,used Calamity jane font ,added pearls & a little stickles to the centre of the flowers,finished with a few butterflies from tonic studio punch & stampin up sizzix embosslits Beautiful Wings.
Hope you are all having a crafty weekend & that you are all well .
Thanks for looking x

Its been a gorgeous sunny day today for a nice change ,its amazing how good it makes you feel .
I was asked by my aunt to make a baby card for her son & family ,so i came across this cute adorable image from http://www.pinkgemdesigns.com/catalog/baby-pram-digi-stamp-p-273.html , i put this image into jumbo mat from here http://www.peppermintcreative.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=111_110&products_id=1501,i used a graphics program to resize one of the bracket mats to put the greeting into ,the backing paper was a freebie i got ages ago cannot remember where from , the ribbon & gems were from own stash.
Sorry about the blurry photo i took it from my phone .
I hope you like it !

This card i made for a nice lady whose office i clean ,she left me a message saying that her last day was yesterday so i quickly went home and made this card for her .
The image is from a download bundle called classic hearts from polkadoodles.co.uk ,the butterflies are from my new memory box dies i bought with some birthday money i had left they are called Isabella & Pippi butterflies.I added the greeting with Kunstler Script Font and finishes with black gems from own stash.
I was not too sure of the colour at first but i am slowly getting used to it ,please let me know your thoughts .
