Country Girl

Hi Everyone, hope you've missed me? I succumbed to the dreaded flu, and as I am older it decided to really hit me hard and leave me feeling a little older, weaker and a few pounds lighter! ME! can't believe it, I'm as strong as an ox most times. Just as well I'm not speaking this, as you wouldn't be able to hear me, yep! I've no voice, hubby is pleased LOL.

Anyhow, enough of me, I didn't enter the Outlawz sketch week before last, so decided I should at least try this week and a beautiful Spring day gave me a lift to make this card, it's a card for one of my Great Niece's birthday which is this week, I thought at one time it would have to be a bought card!!!

I followed the sketch (loosely) laid it out in PS and used a digi stamp which I coloured in PS. I added a punch each side. The image is so like my GN I had to use it.

Digi stamp All Dressed Up Stamps
digi papers from 2006 no name I'm sorry.
gingham alpha Aimee Harrison

buttons Papermania
punch Martha Stewart

Oh Faith I do hope you feel better soon big warm hugs to you
What a gorgeous card I'm sure your GN will love it especially as you have made and not brought it (isn't it funny how we feel as though we are cheating when we have to but them) take care

Think your GN is going to love this Faith, it's super. Hope you are soon fully recovered. Hubby has got a really bad cold, think he must have picked it up on the plane. Am just hoping he doesn't pass it on !! Did you have the flu jab ?

What a sweet birthday card Faith - I've had that nasty flu virus too and it knocked me for six. I'm still trying to get over it 2 weeks later. Hope you are on the mend soon x

Adorable, Faith! Love the Martha Stewart borders. I'm finally mostly healed after the broken hand and it's so good to be able to leave comments again. Hugs, NC

Such a pretty card Faith, a beautiful image and lovely spring colours.

Sorry to hear you have been so unwell Faith and hope you will soon have your voice back and start annoying your husband again real soon. I see the break didn't dull your creativity. That sassy young girl certain has some attitude. Gorgeous colours and beautifully done. A fantastic card for any young lady.

Sorry you've not been well - I've had it too a couple of weeks ago and every week since some other symptom gets me - I fed up of it now as I suspect everyone else is too!
Great card, love her shirt.

Nancy said...

Fabulous card, Faith! She's one of my favorite ADU images! I made a canvas project using her!
I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better, and YES...I did miss you! :o)
