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 for this year, hopefully things can only get better.

 Enough moaning and on to more pleasant things. We have a new challenge starting today over at Divas by Design which is Pretty Pearls Sponsored by Iva Nova Chest............................

 
 For my card I have used the new Prima papers Seashore. The Image is by Wee Stamps called Goldie. All of the die cuts have been cut with the Doohickey kit club No1 and the image has been coloured with Copic Markers. I think she would have looked better if I had used my Distress marker though?
 

 
 
Thanks for stopping by
