Oh dear....

I have fallen victim to one of the many bugs floating about the UK at the moment, and feel very sorry for myself. It's only a bad cold, not the flu thank goodness, but bad enough to make me feel rotten. So I am not firing on all cylinders this week, plus dashing back down to London for another visit. I long for a bit of peace and quiet to get back to a crafty day in my cupboard!
In the meantime, here's a card I made for Craftwork Cards. I used their beautifully foiled papers, and some of the coordinating die-cut flowers. The silver 'brads' in the centre of the flowers are some of their clever card candy - little domes of cardstock that you stick on with a foam pad.
Whilst you are browsing their site, look out for their brand new CD called Inspiring Your Passion. It's packed full of inspiring projects from the design team (mine is a party wreath).

There is a big sale on over at Funky Hand at the moment. Pop over there to pick up a bargain
It took me 4 1/2 hours to do a journey that normally takes about 2 hours today(back down to London). Nightmare. It had all the elements that you dread. Sleet, fog and ice. When I called at a garage for petrol, and went to pay, a woman dashing past in a hurry bumped into me with some force. She would have found her way around a bit better if she had taken her wrap-around sunglasses off. Sunglasses? She would have been better equipped with ski goggles.

You always come up with the most beautiful cards. I look forward to seeinf each and every one of them. So sorry you are feeling on the poorly side. Those bugs are running around in the USA too. My poor FIL who has heart and breathing problems is back in the hospital for the 3rd time in less than 3 weeks. And bless your heart for being in an accident. Hope the damages are not too bad.
