Trailing Birdhouse for Mum!

Hello Blogging Friends, back at last.  I knew I wouldn't be around so much this week as work was going to be busy, little did I know that I would be off work with this horrible stomach bug which make you don't know if your on your knees or bottom, if you get my meaning.  I'm now beginning to feel a bit better, although I feel as if the stuffing has been knocked out of me.  These sort of bugs also plays havoc with my diabetes as I have to keep taking my insulin, but not managing to eat anything so, it makes this kind of illness a bit tricky to manage, anyway I'm on the up.

Thanks to my latest toy, a tablet, I've been able to follow what you have all been doing whilst in bed.  I'm still learning how to use it, I'm not that good with techie things, but I'm getting there.  I've loving what you all have been posting, some really lovely cards and projects.  Such a wealth of talent.

Anyway on to my card, yes I managed to make two today, these have been commissioned for Mother's Day by two of my colleagues, here is the first one;
I've used a LC Trailing Birdhouse stamp and coloured it with Promarkers, stamped on to card cut with a large Xcut die., co-ordinations card, papers were free with a mag, WO Cherry Blossoms, Sizzix Butterfly dies. Pearls and ribbon from The Ribbon Girl., Sentiment, from Flower Soft. To finish off a little Star Dust and some crystal gems.

It's turned out not too bad as I got a bit stuck at one point and thought I would have to scrap it, as long as Susan's mum likes it that's the main thing.
That's me for today and thank you one and all for the lovely comments on my last card, love reading them.

Hello Kate, Fab colouring, also love your layering, embellishments and bit of bling. Sorry to hear you have been ill and hope you are well on the way to recovery now. I am enjoying having my tablet and I am starting to be able to use it for comments, I have a "Capacitive Stylus Pen" which makes it possible for me to hit the right keys most of the time. xx Flora
