Under the Sea

Good morning. I have been missing in action for a while now on and off but hopefully things will pick up. It seems that every time a get one thing sorted another pops up. I have to say it has been quite a year so far. As some of you know I had a house fire at the start of the year that meant I was out of my home from January to June. Having got that sorted we decided to take a holiday July for a little R&R. We ha a lovely time in Mexico and recharged our batteries. On arriving home on the 4/8/14 I received a letter informing me that my employer will be asking for voluntary redundancies! That was a bit of a shock to the system I can tell you. Then on top of that I ended up in hospital this Sunday 17/8/14 with a mystery allergic reaction that made my head neck and arms swell up! I was prescribed Steroids and Antihistamines to take the swelling down. Fingers crossed it seems to be working but I don't look very attractive at the Mo! I definitely think I have had my run of bad luck…

Things with Wings

Good afternoon everyone. Its been a long time since I posted any thing but hopefully I should be back and the straight and narrow now!.  I have had a terrible year so far and the icing on the cake was BT not being able to fix my internet for a month or more. Who knew how much life depended on having the Internet?

Back to the job in hand. Its challenge time atDivas by Design. So to be in with a chance of winning a prized supplied byCrafty Charlie (fantastic shop if you haven't already do take a stroll over there) all you have to do is create a project based on the theme Things With Wings.

For my card I have used Tilda papers. The shape was created by using a Go Kreate die. The gorgeous image is called Rowan fairy by Wee Stamps which has been coloured using copics. Dies used Go Kreate square Spellbinders Circle Spellbinders Scalloped circle LaLa Land doily Joy Crafts Butterfly boarder Thanks for stopping by Hugs Jayne

I dont have many images that would fit this challenge and as my printer has decided it wasn't talking to me I had to hunt around for images that I had already printed. Well I struck lucky and came across this image that I had coloured up and meant to use a few weeks ago.
