♥ Runway inspired challenge ♥

Hi there ... :)  I managed to make a card!!! :)  took me a while but got there in the end.  Things are still not 100% great with me, but I feel a great achievement by creating this card for Runway inspired challenge.  It is very frustrating when for the last couple of weeks I couldn't get near my stamps (",)
So it's just a day at a time with this Neurological functional disorder, just have to plod on, everybody has something in there life to deal with.

Anyhow enough about me and back to my card :)  I used neenah white solar cardstock, it's a favourite on the online classes and is a dream to stamp on.  My ribbon is from my ribbon drawer, perfect colour for the challenge and I had this "one" ribbon buckle that I had in my stash box (it's actually off an old top I cut off and kept)  The mannequin die and co-ordinating stamp are from Papertey and the sentiment from Clean and simple stamps.

Thank you to everyone for all the lovely get well wishes you left for me, I appreciate every single one :)

♥ Just checking in ♥

Hi there :)  ... Just in case you all have been wondering why I am quiet at present,  I took another relapse with this "Neurological functional disorder"  :(  I have been in bed for past week only able to get up for couple hours per day.  Totally missing my crafting ... I decided to sign up for the latest online card making class to help pass the time and learn some new things :)
Don't know how long this relapse will last as it is very unpredictable :(

So in meantime, I shall be resting and enjoying the class and popping over to visit your blogs :)

Thanks for stopping by ♥

♥ CAS-ual Friday's ~ Stamp your own background ♥

The challenge over at CAS-ual Friday's is to stamp your own background.  Sooooo I opened my new fabulous set of building blocks background stamps from Clearly Besotted and WOW!! do they stamp!! extremely crisp!!  :)   I then used two of small butterfly dies and stamped butterfly wishes on them with Papertrey autumn rose ink.  The sentiment is from Papertrey.

This card is tiny :) I cut my card to 2.75" x 2.75"  to match Papertrey 3" x 3" kraft envelopes that I bought a loooong time ago and just opened them now (",) ... LOL .  I then decided I would make the envelope pretty by embossing the fold with butterfly kisses embossing folder

have a lovely evening ♥
