Dandelion Sprite!

Hello Crafty Friends and anyone who pops in, I hope you are all fit and well and have enjoyed your day.
Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my last card, and for the kind words regarding my friend Jackie.  Sadly she died today, surrounded by those who loved her, she just slipped away. I managed to spend some time with her yesterday and she was really very weak, so the call came as no surprise.

It's just a short post from me tonight, I'll be off shortly to bed, I snoozed for the best part of two hours on the sofa this evening, just so tired, I was even too tired to get up and go to bed, have you ever been like that?

So here is my card:
I have a little Sprite here from Aurora Wings, it's the Dandelion Sprite and coloured with SN pens. Now through my photo editor I seem to have lost a bit of colour, but her dress is quite yellow in reality and her face has more colour. SB Dies and Embossialicious Embossing Folder, card from my stash, ribbon and bling, topped of with some Glamour Dust.

I would like to enter my card into; http://aurorawingschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/challenge-16-sprite-delight-ii.html

That's me for tonight, see you soon,

Sorry to hear of the loss of your dear friend. That may have some bearing on why you are exhausted...trauma like loss can affect us so deeply.

I have been that tired as you describe and have often walked up the stairs groggy with sleep. DH always says if he falls asleep watching tV just throw an afghan over him and leave him there!!! teehee

Your card is very pretty...such a sweet image!

Diane said...

Good Evening Kate, you are in my thoughts, what a lovely colored Sprite and card design.

Hugs Diane

MRS DUCK said...

Aw Kate
So sorry about Jackie but as I said 2 minutes ago, shoe was surrounded by love which is more than some folk have.
No wonder you feel drained, and yes, there is many a time I have woken up in the chair, stiff necked and dribbling lol!
Your card is cute and fun chuck and lovely.
Look after yourself.

"Shoe"? Bloomin predictive text. That should have been "she"

Sorry about your friend, knowing the end is near does not ease the pain of
losing someone...thinking of you.
