Tea and Roses


Going back to the doctor this morning as despite two lots of antibiotics the cough isn't any better. It has been over three months now and I am really fed up with it. So onto today's card which is a 7" x 7" commissioned card. I was asked to make a 60th Birthday card for a very English lady. The precoloured image from The Paper Shelter, Vintage Teacups, was perfect. I added some lovely lace from Crafty Ribbons, flowers from Wild Orchid, butterfly from The Works and used a Tim Holtz die for the numbers and a Die-Versions sentiment die.

Fabulous card Marianne.
I hope the Dr can sort out your cough - it is so draining when they hang around for so long.

Brilliant card and love the tea cups. I hope they have given you the right antibiotic this time. Coughing is not just painful, it's so exhausting. Speak to you soon. Hugs, Carol S.xxx
