Fairies For Chrisy

Evening All
Sorry I've been MIA again, it has taken me nearly a week to feel even vaguely normal again after the night shifts. I don't know how people do it.
This card was made for a lady at work to give to her daughter Chrisy.
I chose a delightful old LOTV image as the focal point for my card, cut out using a circular 'stitched' die.
It was then layered onto a purple scalloped circle which has been highlighted with gold gilding wax.
The purple background card has been dry embossed using a large folder from Crafts Too.
I added some flowers and leafy swirls which complimented the flowers on the fairy topper.
A little bit of glitter glue and some tiny gems and it's all blinged up and ready to send.
I'm pleased to say that it was very well received. In fact she was so thrilled with it that she wants me to make a couple more special cards for her to send.
Have a great evening.
Happy Crafting and hugs

What a chaotic few days

Hi All,
Well that didn't last long did it, although in my defence I did have a rather chaotic day on Thursday which ended with waiting for a non emergency ambulance to assess whether or not my eldest daughter needed to be taken to hospital.
Her back went and we were unable to even get her up off the chair without her screaming out in agony. No matter how old they get it is always horrible to see your children in pain.
There was a little light relief in the proceedings when we were chatting to the paramedic and discovered that our children had attended the same secondary school. Not only that, my daughter had a huge crush on her son..........what a small world it is.
Although Friday and the weekend were a little less fraught, the pain killers are starting to kick in for my daughter, and she didn't end up in hospital, and we had a nice relaxing chalks class on Saturday, my weekend ended with a rather unexpected night shift.
Fortunately I was kept fairly busy with all of the cooking for the Wild Bean Cafe, despite Boss's assurances that the oven was broken so there would be very little for me to do.
I have to admit that I am really rather glad that they had fixed it so that I could keep myself busy.  I hadn't been tired enough to sleep before I came on shift, and I haven't been able to sleep very much when I got home this morning so it is going to be a difficult couple of days especially as I have just agreed to do it all again tonight as the person that I was covering is still off sick.
I think that I had better try and get my head down for a couple of hours or I am going to be a bit of a zombie by midnight.
So bye for now, I will try and post something craft related later, if I get a chance.
Hugs Kimx
