Thank You!

Good Morning to all my Crafty Friends and Anyone who happens to visit, it is always good to see you here and All is welcome.
I'm posting this from my bed, yes I'm down with the bug and not feeling tip top.  I'm being well looked after by Alistair, who isn't really a 100% yet himself.  I'm not good at staying in bed, feel I've got to be up and doing things even if it's slowly, but I'm jiggered today and the cough is getting worse. 
At one point I thought Teallche would have to take care of us, but I saw he was limping and found he had cut one of his little pads on his back paw. Poor wee Guy, wouldn't let me have a really good look at it., but he's healed it himself and he is fine now. 

Here is a wee card made for one of my clients to give to his brother and he wanted his name on it;
Using a Michael Powell stamp and colouring it with Prismacolour pencils, sentiment from Papermaina and letter peeloffs.
Just a simple wee card and as you can see I decided not to colour every part of it in, just made the foreground the focus.

All from me to day, hope everyone is well, see you soon I hope,

Patricia said...

Aww!! Kate here are a few (((((hugs))))) to help. I would say I would rather be there to give you them ...... but I don't want your "bugs" I am thinking of you, hope you feel better soon.
Love your card, I don't have any of those stamps. I like how you have only partially coloured the image, looks really effective.

Sounds like you need some really good rest Kate. Lots of fluids too. I really like hot tea when I am sick.
Your card is really wonderful - I really like the way you colored it and the colors you used. Now get some sleep!

Hi Kate
You need a rub down with an oily rag lol!
Good job Alastair can cook. If I were laid up in bed , Mr D's culinary repertoire is very limited.
Love Billy's card which has shamefully reminded me that I have a Michael Powell stamp that I've never used.
Hope you feel better soon chuck.
