Valentine Rose Garden

Hi all,
Hope you are all having a good weekend... huge hugs to those who are unwell or going through difficult times.

I've finally managed to do a bit of colouring and crafting... and made these two Valentine's Cards... one for my daughter and one for my mum. 

I have huge stack of papers that came free with magazines... so I'm trying to use some of them up. I searched through for some that matched my colouring and found some very pretty Damask Rose papers by Jennifer Ellory. I was gonna make both cards with the green paper but the flip side of this paper was purple/cream and it also matched really nicely.. so thought I'd use it on my mum's card as she loves purple.

The stamp set is called Clear Impressions Rose Garden and was part of the fab candy that I won off the lovely Jo last year. 

In the set you get loads of images that you can merge together to make a scene. 

Coloured with Copics. I've added some stickles to the water in the fountain. 

Two very simple cards but boy did I enjoy making them, especially the colouring as I've not done any for a long while :-))

I still haven't got very much time for crafting/blogging with one thing and another. Thanks for your good wishes from my last post... I've finally recovered from my chest infection... but now my mum isn't too well. So I'm giving her lots of TLC and spending some time with her. 

At least we have had a bit of sunshine here in Manchester over last few days... nice to have it lighter in the mornings and evenings! the dry and sunny weather make me feel so much better... so roll on Spring!!
Take Care
Love and hugs

Sorry I've not been in blogland for quite a while.  My chest has flared up bad again, so at moment I'm having to rest and can't do very much. I've just got some new stronger antibiotics and so hoping they will kick in proper by weekend.

My room is coming along nicely though... am starting to get some of my crafty stuff back into it. Can't wait to start crafting again.

Thanks for visiting and for all your lovely comments... I really do appreciate them.
Take care
Love and hugs
