Suffering

I seem to be developing yet another fluey cold as I have a thumping headache, a sore throat and runny nose not to mention the aches and shivers. I think poor Alex must be suffering from exactly the same as he isn’t sleeping well and is really tired and somewhat sensitive poor lad. That said we have had fun over the past few days with games of boo and pounce as well as chasing a balloon around the house and pulling silly faces.
Crafting wise I made this card for several challenges. Crafty Cardmakers are having a ‘desert island challenge’ where you have to think about what crafty items you couldn’t live without and make a card or project using just those items. At the moment I think it has to be my Tim Holtz distressed inks and my crafty individuals stamps which is what I have used exclusively on this card. This card also fits with the Pile it on challenge of ‘Spring’, the ‘distressing’ challenges from both Crafty creations and Sophisticat, Penny’s challenge of ‘anything goes’ and was inspired by the photo in Simply Scrapping. Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy the sun.
Love,
Caro
