I have been really poorly in the last few weeks so I have barely made anything so it took me all my time to muster the energy to make this challenge card.  As much as I love crafting - I just wasn't in the mood at all although I am quite pleased with the finished card.  I went for quite a clean and simple look as it can take me ages to decide on papers etc so I went with just one colour (red) and white with just using my divine swirls embossing folder for a bit of added interest.  The stamp is a wooden backed one from stampabilities although I can't remember what it's called....Oops!  I have coloured the hopper in with my promarkers as usual.  The sentiment is a wooden stamp that is probably a car boot buy that my dad bought for me.

You can tell how ill I've been - I still haven't inked up my lovely new Wild Rose Studio stamps that I received last week as part of my DT kit!  All those cute little Bella's....sob!

Today, I am actually feeling a lot better after a few days off work as I really haven't done anything but relax trying to get better.  I think my mum and dad must be sick of the sight of me as I've been hanging round theirs for the last few days.  Luckily, they only live a few minutes walk away!  I used to live next door to them until I moved in with the hubby! 

I hope you've all enjoyed the good weather we've been having this weekend.  If it's still nice on wednesday we hope to take Tayla to the zoo.  We were going to go last wednesday but I didn't feel up to it!

Thanks for looking!
