Pastel Daisies and Butterflies!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well and keeping warm and dry in this awful weather that we have just now. It has been raining horizontally today and so dark that the lamps have been on most of the day, and to make matters worse, I've come down with a cold/sinus infection and feel utterly miserable. Keeping this short today, Blogger is misbehaving and this is the third time of trying to type this out, I keep getting symbols and what I can only call codes every time I save my work and go into drafts, most strange. Anyway, here is my card; 
 Using one of the newer stamps from Chocolate Baroque called Daisy head, I coloured with with SN Aqua pens and added glitter with their new glitter pen in Crystal.

Butterflies from the Honeysuckle Butterfly Stamp set and Sentiment from the Macintosh sentiment set.

The butterflies are coloured with Promarker and glittered as above.
Background made by colour washing pink, blue, green and yellow water colours from my Kurietaki paints, (love them), Liquid Pearls, ribbon and a pink heart gem and job done.

Thank you all for commenting on my Oldie card, you are very kind, and I hope you will like this one too, I aways appreciate your kind words.

That's me for now, so take care and see you soon,
I would like to enter my card into the;

A beautiful springtime card. Hope you're feeling better very soon. Take good care. Sending big get-well hugs.

MaryH said...

It's a lovely card, with some gorgeous flowers. It's amazing with feeling this miserable, you can turn out such a beauty...add in the frustration of blogger, is just even more amazing! Sure hope you feel better very soon, and that the miserable weather can morph into some dry sunshine. You take care. Lots of TLC from the boys is warranted. Big hugs. TFS

Sandy said...

I am always behind Kate - it is driving me crazy!! I do love sunflowers - aren't they in the same family as a daisy?
Kate you are much more determined than I - if I was sick with a sinus infection, which I have been on many occasion, I would in be in bed with a hot cup of tea and a good book. So glad to know that your are better but sorry to hear that Alistair is now sick. Have you studied up on things to do for the Immune System? As we get older our immune system is does not work as well - that is one of the reasons I quit volunteering in the schools - those kids love to share their bugs and I seem to get everyone. My doctor told me I suffered from varmititis. All those little varmints running around sharing there illnesses!!
