A  second  card in  the  offing  now  . It is  taking me  a much longer  time  than usual  to  complete  but  I  am glad  to  be  crafting  again  at  last  . It is  worth  the  pain  to produce  a  card  again  . I  am  thankful  that I  am able  to  do  this  as the  result of  the  fall could have been  so much  worse  and  I  might never have  been  able  to  do it  again .
For  this  card  I used images  from Penny  Black  'a bunch '  stamp  set  . I  coloured  the  stamps  with  Promarkers  and  fussy  cut  them to  make  a suitable  arrangement of  spring  flowers  . I  die  cut  a  circle in  white  and  mirri  card  using  tonic  nesting  circle dies . The background  paper is  from  my  stash  and  I  added  recycled  ribbon  paper(from  a  bunch  of  flowers  that  I  was  given).

Well you might  have   noticed that I haven't added a card to my blog since well before Easter. This certainly wasn't out  of choice. I managed to fall down a flight of stairs breaking 8 ribs ,my collar bone and puncturing my lung. This entailed a stay in a trauma hospital and an op to fix three of the ribs.. Back home I could not get to my craft room even if I had been able to craft which was very painful  and frustrating. My husband bought me a mag with this stamp as a freebie so I had to make do with fussy cutting and colouring. This week I have progressed a little and managed a card. So I am getting there. When I came round after the Op I told the nurse that I was in a lovely craft shop.such is my addiction !!!! I added glossy accents to the wellies and raindrops and papers from my stash .The  sentiment is  computer  generated  .
So pleased  to be  crafting in  a  small way  again  !!

I  decided that  this  lovely  design  from  All  dressed up  needed  to  have  a  delicate  background  so  I  designed one  to  fit using  various  digikits  from  Serif   and  when  I  found the tree it  was  ideal  for  the image  to  sit on  . The  digi  is  called  Loveisxxx and I  coloured it  with  Promarkers adding  a pattern  to  their hats  . All I  felt  was needed  to  complete  the card  was  a  butterfly  just  fluttering  by  .

I  recently  bought  another  CD from  Whoopsie daisy  and  couldn't  wait  to use  it  as there were  so many  lovely  designs on it  . Rather  than just  printing  the design on  card  I  decided  to  print it on  acetate  but  also  on  card  as  the  design I chose  was pale .  I managed  to  match  them both up  so  they  could  be  seen  together  . The  photos  show this .
The  design  I chose is  bubble  fairy  from  the  Daisy  May  and  friends CD  .
Once  I had  cut  the  aperture  for the  acetate  I  dry  embossed  the  base  card using  a rain  type  folder  . I  die  cut  bubbles  using glitter  film  card  and stickles   from  Little  Claire  using  a  bright bubbles  die  from Sissix . The sentiment is  from  my  stash  ,
