Hello Sunshine

A mostly dry day here for a pleasant change, got both yesterday and today's washing blowing in the wind!!!
After a busy 3 days with Mum's birthday I started with a sore throat and cold on Sunday night and I have felt really rough!! I suppose I should not moan (but I have) lol, because I can't remember the last time either of us had a cold! I have spent the last two days on the settee, dozing and just doing the necessary bits.
I am feeling a little better today so sat and made this card between sleeps lol

Papers no name from garden centre last year
Meljens image and Hooray sentiment
Coloured with promarkers and distress inks
bow from Mei flower
card candy from Craftwork cards at Leigh show

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Sunday sketch and stamp ------- sketch 114

Crafts and me ---------- Faux or real stitching

Celebrate the occasion ------ Birthdays

Truly, madly, crafty --------- Animals

I thought I would throw in a picture of Mum last Sunday birthday tea for good luck lol..... she was 98 and enjoyed the fuss.

I hope you are keeping well and dry
Thank you for your visit

Hugs Tilly x
