Feeling Rough!!!!!!!!

Hi All. I can't believe it's been so long since my last post - and I'm sorry I've not been round to visit any of you. I've been feeling really ill these last few days. I think with all the stress I've got going on with my son, it's making me feel ill. Every time I try to sit down and craft, I feel dizzy and light-headed and looking at the computer is even worse, so I'm sorry I've not been round to visit all of my lovely blog friends. I'll try and catch up as soon as I start feeling better. I'm on here today because there's a new challenge over at Shopping Our Stash and this week it's 'Out with the Old or In with the New' (I love Carla's inventive titles for these themes!!) It basically means you need to create a project using either your oldest stash or something you've hoarded for stroking LOL or your newest. It couldn't be any easier (well, unless you're going to use your hoarded stash and then we all know how hard it is to take the scissors to the most strokable papers out there hee, hee!!) I should really have used something old (cos there sure as heck is enough of it!!!), but when these papers arrived from Bunny Zoe's and I saw how gorgeous they were (even more so IRL!) and how perfectly they would go with one of my newest LOTV stamps, it just had to be done!! So - here's my card:
Image - Lili of the Valley, watercoloured with Distress Inks.
Papers - SEI 'A Fair Day'
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Sentiment - Whimsy Stamps ticket stamp and die.
Other - Leaves punched with MS punch, Bazzill Basics Pink and Kraft card, Pebbles Inc Candy Dots.

I'm also entering my card into Lili of the Valley's Challenge 104, which is a great sketch by Donalda.
OK - that's all from me for now, I really hope I start feeling better and can get back to my crafting and blogging best! And don't forget to join in with our challenge at Shopping Our Stash. Til next time folks.......xx
