Isabelle and Cocoa


Wherever you are, I hope you are warm and safe - Cornwall is bright and sunny today but from the news I see that the torrential rain we had yesterday has now turned to snow as it moves across the country.

I have another Sarah Kay card to share with you, this is Isabelle playing with puppy Cocoa, I've stamped with brown Momento and of course I've coloured the image with my Copic pens.  Mr Mojo has packed his bags and left me .. .. so my card isn't as embellished as some I've been making recently - hopefully you still like it and the pretty image and papers will make up for the lack of blooms etc.

The Stamp With Fun challenge is an anything goes theme and Charisma Cardz would like to see your die cuts - I have the flowers, leaves, butterflies, ovals and the pretty lace border.

So here's the card - the papers are from the Spring Chic pack and the plain card is Baja Breeze by Stampin' Up! - my last sheet Linda so I will need some more please!  As I said, I got a bit stuck with embellishments for this one, and ended up with just a couple of flowers, a length of ribbon and lots of butterflies, plus the pearls of course.

Yesterday I had a very upsetting meeting with DH and now I am feeling very sad and depressed about the situation. Thankfully Jason will be back shortly with his girlfriend to keep me company for the rest of the weekend, and to try and finish laying Mum's en-suite shower room floor tomorrow.  He's gone and got himself a job, well he does need the money but it's not really his cup of tea, or the kind of work he's used to doing. And, it will mean that the rest of the building and DIY take a lot longer to get finished.  We have a bit more destruction to do before Mum's end is ready for the plasterer and I don't want to leave her too long in the midst of chaos, and without wardrobes!  I've also got to clear out the space and that means trying to sell a set of cabin beds with mattresses - solid pine with a wax finish, 3 large storage drawers in the base unit that slides under the top bed - £80 ono, buyer to collect.
