Homely hues.

Hello all thanks for stopping by.
I haven't blogged for over a week - actually it's more like it 2 weeks. I don't usually get ill but I have been sooo unwell with some sort of virus.
I've been left with a horrid head cold and a hacking cough but I am def feeling alot better than I was last week.
So I am hoping to be all better in time for Christmas.

I didn't do any crafting while sick apart from finishing off this card which was all ready to be stuck down and tweaked and I actually only done that because our friends finaly moved into their new house !
So I was thrilled when I finally turned my computer back on and found that I'd got a top 3 spot at Ellephantastic in my absence and also that one of my cards had been picked as one of the favourites from the YEAR over at a crafty little place so thanks to them for brightening my day and my mood. It also kick started my crafty mojo and I set straight to work on a card which I'll show you in a couple of days - so pop back !

For this card I used some beautiful papers from Crate Paper and a digi frame from Whimsy stamps Dressed up shapes set 2 with a sentiment from Ann aka raindrop echo.
I also made a little lacy rosette by gathering up some lace and adding a button.

I love the colours of this card and it was refreshing to make something other than a Christmas project !

I would like to add this card to the following challenges;
