Just Because

Even though I haven’t posted in a while I have been making a few cards for different challenges when I’ve had the energy and time– I just haven’t had the time to photo and write them up but I did that today so here come  a few entries for the next day or two(I hope)  -I know most of you didn’t realise I haven’t posted for a while but I have had a lot going on in my life-running around after various members of my family for various reasons and for the last three weeks I have had this horrible cold that started with my nose dripping like a tap then went to my head and chest and I just can’t shake it- I am low in energy and have spent the little time I can afford to sleep- trying to fight it off- If anyone has any ideas I would be glad to hear them. When I have had time I have had to catch up with housework and gardening(our yards front and back look like a deserted house yard)- we have actually had a couple of weeks without constant rain- oh so nice- (the start of Autumn(fall) is better weather wise than our summer was so far) and I mowed the back lawn yesterday –which really knocked me but I feel better that it’s done.

This card is for the  Card Patterns Sketch 107 challenge and the JustRite Friday Challenge 051- An Act of Kindness tell someone how much you appreciate them – I like to have this sort of card handy so when I know someone is feeling a bit low I give them one and a small gift- usually either chocolate,flowers or something a bit more personal-depending on the reason for giving it.




 Card details- cream cardstock ; Papers- Hunters watercolour paper, Impress Woodgrain- viza blue,  the background paper is the last piece I had in my stash and the purple was a piece I was experimenting with when I made some homemade glimmer spray stuff- you can’t tell in this picture but it does glimmer quite a bit; Stamps-Just Rite 3 1/4 “ set   Harmony Classic Circle III Stamp Ensemble  and the border is from the Monogram Self- inking  stamper kit ; Ink- Generic Dye ink and Versamark Watermark; Embossing Powder-Celebration of Australia- White, Light blue- from stash;Ribbon-stash.
