Life is a Circle.....

Hello... hope you are all well today... I thought I'd show you a card that I made for a friend's Birthday last month... I used a gorgeous Art by Miran image called Davina. I merged the image on top of some Pink Petticoat Cloud Paper... then coloured her in with Promarkers and Copics. Davina looks like a very trendy girl and so I've given her dip dyed hair. Thought I would use some of my new circle dies... but think I got a bit carried away... Lol... wish I had moved the sentiment down a wee bit but had glued it on too well !!! don't you hate it when that happens.

Image: Art by Miran - Davina
Cloud Background (image): Pink Petticoat Cloud Paper
Papers: Prima - Believe
Dies: Lots of different Circles!! Lol
Flowers: Papermania
Butterfly: Prima
Sentiment: LOTV

I would like to say big thank you to everyone who sent me get well wishes. I am doing ok but still not hundred per cent....  they identified the bacteria in my chest and gave me some really strong antibiotics which cleared it for a while... but can't believe it's flaring up again now... so think I will be referred for more tests. Some good news is that they have brought my dental hospital appointment forward and I'm due to have the dreaded tooth root out on 8th July... so I'm counting the days down..... can't wait to get rid of it as it hurts all the time now.

I've been watching lots of Netflix and Amazon Prime to take my mind off things. I've not done very much crafting as my mojo seems to have disappeared at the moment.. but I do have a few creations that I made earlier to post on my blog... and I'm reading my crafting magazines which will hopefully inspire me :-)) off to catch up with you all now...
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Take Care
Love and Hugs

MAWTT - Song Lyrics

Hello.... I hope you are all doing ok today.... it's the turn of Team B over at

and lovely Lena is hosting and has chosen a wonderful theme for us this week! :-))

'Song Lyrics'

Choose a verse, chorus, or just one line from a song that you love. You could use it as a sentiment or as inspiration for your design etc.

I have chosen one of my favourite songs....

Under the Ivy by Kate Bush

Colouring Mediums: Copics
Papers: Raspberry Road Designs - The Drawing Room
Flowers: Stash

Love the lyrics to this song as it reminds me of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

'But she was inside the wonderful garden and she could come through the door under the ivy any time and she felt as if she had found a world all her own.'

There is a fab prize this week for our winner!!! 
Lena has kindly donated 15 Unmounted Rubber Stamps!! yes 15!!! 
so hope you will join us for this fun challenge and you could be the lucky winner of these stamps!! :-)

Also hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's lyrical creations!!

Sorry I'm not in Blogland much at the moment... I'm having quite a few health problems and not feeling great. Same old problems with my chest and tooth! But hoping to get rid of the tooth very soon... fingers and toes crossed!
Will be around to see you all as soon as I feel a bit better.
Take Care
Sending love and hugs
