Sisters and Chocolate



Another MFT image, I love the sentiment on this one. Yes, I do have a sister, she lives about 30 minutes away from me, and when I am in the UK we usually manage to see each other for lunch and a gossip about once a week, it's a very special relationship. She has known me longer than anybody else on earth, and we are very supportive of each other. She doesn't make cards, but is a wonderful flower arranger, so somewhere along the line we were given a creative gene or two.
I am back home, with the mother and father of a cold, so I am taking a duvet day in an attempt to feel human again. Not that I look it, pale and interesting doesn't work after a certain age I have found. More like washed-out and looking horrendous :)

Enfys....this is the cutest card and oh, so true! I have had the greatest time today catching up on all your creations that I missed while I was ill. It hurt my heart to read about Max; I am delighted that he is home and doing well. I was trying to pick a favorite card and the one I enjoyed the most was the one that said, "Don't tell me what kind of day to have!!!!" It just cracked me up! I began outpatient rehab today and I felt just like the girl in the image when it was over.....hahaha!

Hugs

Poor En! Maybe you caught Max's bug...Hope you feel better soon! Check out my post for today, it should give you a chuckle or two. Love your card and I am totally jealous of those stamps! I don't have any MFT stamps yet but I hope to get some soon. Your coloring is amazing, how do you do it?
Blessings,

Glad I found your site. It's great and I feel inspired. I have two sisters and neither live close by. I wish I could see them more often so I really relate to your card. Thanks!

This is a great color combo. I like the addition of the small amount of black, or is that dark brown. Hope your feeling better by now.

I just came back from a weekend with my sister and I must say it is better than therapy!

That is a great card. Someday I'll be able to make cards like you.

I love this card Enfys, is it a stamp that you used?? Do you purchase alot of your stamps in the UK? If so where? All my family is in the UK so maybe I could get a hold of some. Great work, please keep sharing.
