"A Little Bit of Happy"

Hello there Blog friends, thank you for popping in, I really do appreciate it.  For all my friends that I have not managed to get round to visit these past few days I do apologise.   I have not been quite "with it" lack of sleep is a horrible thing.   I have made nothing!!!! sorry about that.  I have almost caught up with my self once more, not quite but nearly there.
Today`s card, it is the first one I ever put on my Blog back in June.  At the time it got one comment from my friend Debbie down in Darlington.  I think since then it has had an other three comments.   To give me time so that I can catch up with myself I thought I would post it once again, hope you don`t mind.
Today I have to get on with orders for 4 cards.  Hopefully that will give me something to show you over the next few days when hopefully I will be back in full working mode. 

Base card 5 x 7 approx Craft Card

  3. Lovely card Patricia. I recognise how you have used your folded-over doily!! I think it is a fabulous idea. It sounds strange haring you say "down in Darlington" because of course for me it is "up". I lived there for nearly four years when I was doing my SRN training. Ah, those were the days!! love from Christine x

  4. Good Morning Patricia,
    Hope you are feeling abit better today.
    Todays card is sooooo pretty, the brown and cream is lovely, great idea with the doilies, a very pretty card.
    Have a great day.

  5. Morning Patricia, Your card is truly beautiful, I love the colours you have used, so rich and warm, truly beautiful.
    Hope you manage to catch up on your sleep, you need sleep to cope with the day ahead. I am feeling terrible, I went from bad to worse yesterday with my head cold, and the racking cough, feeling so sorry for myself ha ha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
