Daisy on Ice

It's an anything goes week on Cute Card Thursday with Sunflower Field sponsoring us, please stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and for more DT inspiration.

I managed to put this cute little Daisy card together a while back using the Piroutte stamp again.  In the close up picture she looks a little wonky and admittedly the card base I cut with a Frilly #10 die has a tendency to twist a little, I think I will have to glue a hinge to the spine .. ..

Daisy is coloured with my Copic pens and then I've carefully added Crystal Stickles for festive sparkle over the swirls and around the edge, at least it doesn't matter too much if the Copic ink bleeds a little underneath.  Here's the card:

I've used a piece of paper from the MD Winter Time pad PK9100, and various die cuts for embellishment together with a scrap of MD blue lace tied in a bow and pearls made with my Wacco pearl pen.  The snowflakes, bells and holly are all on the new die COL1363, the twigs are from set LR0286.

Sorry I've not been around, things are rather strained here just now and I'm not crafting much (this is one I made a while ago).  Mum has had another heart attack and coping with her and the house/garden on my own is taking it's toll on my own health .. .. the doctor tells me I should relax, stop worrying and get out more, easier said than done! And, my pc is as unreliable as ever, thankfully I can use my new gadget to read my emails and facebook but still need the pc dinosaur to load up my pictures and write on blogs.  I'm waiting for the plasterer to come and give me a quote for finishing off the garage and a few other odd skimming jobs that never got done - then I'll have to brave the ladder and have a go at painting ceilings and hanging wallpaper myself as I've been let down by the decorator and can't find anyone else to do the work for love or money!  My youngest son Mat has offered to help, but with a young family and work he is pretty tied up, and more useful to me doing outside chores when he can come around.  My eldest has moved away to Dorset to start a new chapter in his life, wishing him much success and happiness, but I will miss you J!  Feeling rather alone and a bit down in the dumps just now so please excuse me if I'm absent for days/weeks on end.
