Sweet Peas


Thanks so much for all your get well wishes. Yesterday I finally started to feel like I had a little energy. The cough is easing and the cold is going away. It seems that  lot of people have this horrible barking cough and it is taking a few weeks to disappear. We had a lovely day planned yesterday, massages and facial for me, lunch with a friend and then visit my Mum and her hubby in the afternoon. Sadly we had to cancel them all and reschedule. Another day in the warm was what I needed. That wind yesterday was bitterly cold I was told, I never ventured out.

So on to my card which has been made using one of the LOTV art pads. The papers are some of the last few sheets of one of my fave paper pads from papermania, Henbury Lane. The ribbon, which you can just see, is from Crafty Ribbons.

Hubby had this as well apparently there was a mix up in this flu injection, although because they mucked up they are telling people not to worry.

Such a pretty card, the papers and image go together so well. These were a lovely collection of papers which I think they haven't topped with anything they've brought out since.
Glad you are feeling better today.

Very pretty card Mariane, great layout and I love the papers, gorgeous colours, I love sweet peas, they remind me of my Godmother who passed a very long time ago but she always used to give my family a big bunch of sweet peas from her garden, lovely memories of her, thank you Marianne.
