I'm enjoying...

...the fact that it's Saturday hooray!...I am so relieved. This week at work has been busy and I have had a really horrid virus to contend is somewhere between a cold and flu...why is it I never just get a 24 hour cold? I always seem to get some nasty little bug that won't let go for weeks.

I still feel pretty horrible but, as ever, crafting has made me forget about it for a few hours, enough for me to make a card for the fab Waltzingmouse sketch challenge this week.


Love this week's sketch, it's right up my street.

Goodness knows how many times I've used this background stamp from WM's Victorian Frippery set. I dont think I will ever get fed up of using it. The frame is the first outing for my Very Vintage Labels 10 stamp. Even the little Fleur De Lis stamp that I've used behind the sentiment is by WM.

I was very lucky that a friend managed to get some May Arts Silk ribbon on a trip to America. I absolutely love it.

Right I'm off the enter my card into the challenge, and then have a rest!!

Toodlepip for now!

How do you make such elegant cards every time? I love the stamps you have used. And that gorgeous ribbon. :)

You make simple stamps into a work of art - it would never occur to me to make this card from that set. Love the ribbon and the gorgeous brad sets it off perfectly. Hope your feeling better soon.

What a sumptuous card Sarita, totally gorgeous, as all of your creations are. Thanks for your comment, don't know what you meant about 'old blogger' perhaps you can advise?
Think I'm getting a cold too, have a very sore throat, there's a lot of it about. Hope you feel better soon.
