Hearts and Flowers


Morning Peeps, time for our new Allsorts challenge and this week Wendy is our host with the theme of  'Hearts and Flowers'.

A new post with the assistance of hubby, 22 pills a day means la la land prevails and the cognitive skills are slow to return to normal plus can't shake a heavy dose of Christmas flu, but on good days still making a passable attempt at trowing inks and paint at card, doesn't really matter if anyone understands what I'm actually saying does it, the dogs know that I mean!!

Some parchment craft and a crackle glaze piece, can't explain sufficiently to hubby to give details of what I actually did to pass on to you all, but sure lots of you will know and Wendy will get the top one just fine and as I did that especially for her that's all that matters.

Ohhh 22 pills a day - la la land will haunt you for a while yet!! Praying that your body will adjust to the new meds soon, and that they will be effective in controlling your symptoms. Glad to hear the dogs understand - I could too.
Love your beautiful cards - so glad you can throw paint and crackle glaze as your results are stunning Brenda.
Blessings
Maxine

It's been a while since I did some parchment craft! The piercing and sniping with the scissors is so fiddly... Embossing and pencil work on vellum has this lovely soft quality. I love the design of your second piece and do I spot a bit of coffee cup recycling?!! xx

Hi dearest Brenda!! I'm very impressed, 22 pills a day are really a bunch!!! :(( Hope that your cognitive skills will return quickly!!! You are lucky having the assistance of your hubby for posting here and a great DT team that helps you with your sites! I wish you that your health will improve quickly day by day!!
Your cards are so lovely, the first one has a sweet feel with that wreath on vellum and especially love the card you made for Wendy, your playing with crackle glaze and paint looks amazing and -wow- that string of pearls with the corrugate cardboard match so well together! Wonderful work!!
Big hugs and blessings!

It's wonderful to see you posting again Brenda. Your parchment card is a real beauty. It's not something that I've tried and I don't think I dare venture into something else that will mean building up a new stash....plus, I wouldn't have room in my little craft room :) Wishing you a better week Brenda. Crafty Hugs, Sandra x

Two absolute beauties, Brenda. Hope you are being a good patient for Eddy and that you are feeling much better soon xxx

Mrs.B said...

Two beautiful cards Brenda, the parchment craft is so pretty.
22 pills - (hope you don't rattle when you walk) but as long as they are helping with your symptoms that's all that matters, hope the Christmas flu disappears quickly, as I don't think that will have helped.
Take care, Avril xx

Gerrina said...

That first one is so elegant and jet modern by the colours; looks so great! And on the 2nd I love that you used cardboard to give it so much dimension!
Hope you will be a lot better soon (so manny pills doesn't sound good)! Hugs, Gerrina

Brenda these are beautiful cards despite you feeling poorly . I do hope that you are beginning to feel better and at least throwing off the flu . I always enjoy looking at your cards first , when a new challenge comes up . You are so talented . Good to hear hubby is supporting you . I know that helps as i had the support of mine after my bad accident last year .
Take care of yourself and keep producing those lovely cards Jx
