Love Letter

Yayyy it's Friday Peeps,

What a week.  Been so busy at work, working from early doors to late and coming home knackered.  Mind you my tiredness has been hindered by me stupidly catching my big toenail and ripping half of it off. Ouch!  So verrrrrry verrrry painful and would you believe prevented me from sleeping.  I can't stand the sheet touching my foot so I have to hook my other foot on top and place the covers over so it doesn't drape onto my big toe.  Who would of thought this would prevent me from sleeping the last 4 nights!

Hopefully things will improve next week.  I did manage to do a good deed of giving blood at lunch time today, I'm quite a quick bleeder so squeezed it in but then my arm couldn't stop bleeding, lol. Got more than they needed from me I can tell ya.

Today's card is showing off those gorgeous locks from the new artist at Crafts and Me, Dollie James and I have used Love Letter.  I have colourerd her on Kraft, which was given to me by my lovely friend Jane and I'm hoping Jane will be giving me some pointers in my pencil colouring.....this is the first time I've tried black hair, ummmmm

Quite a simple card from me, yep I know, unusual. I've had the paper in my stash for a couple of years, sorry I don't know who they are by.  The Flower has been made using the Marianne Design Craftable Oval  CR1204 and the flourish is a Memory Box Die Scroll.

The photos aren't brilliant, sorry. 

Have a good weekend everyone, hopefully I will get round to you all over the weekend, I'm hoping for some sun......I'm fed up of the rain.

Hi Tracy, poor little you, so sorry about your toe. I can imagine that would hurt like crazy! Couldn't you put a bandage around? That would surely prevent the sheet from touching it! Anyhow, I think your card is just smashing. Love the coloring on kraft paper! HUgs, Frea

Tracy, I think your coloring is wonderful. What a great image also. I love everything about it. So sorry about that toenail. You described it so well as I have done that before and the bedsheets do bother it. joann sassy raggedy
