Wow it has been forever! The last few months have been a series of one health problem after another and a lot of doctors and tests that have resulted in a lot of treating the symptoms with no idea what the underlying cause is. I have full appreciation for the NHS and for everything the doctors have been trying, but oh how I wish they'd just figure out whats causing it all, so I can go back to whatever passes for normal for me.
One of the big problems is that I'm so constantly exhausted, some days I barely have the energy to do the stuff I *have* to do, never mind the stuff I want to do, which means crafting has been pretty much none existent and I haven't been looking at the challenges at all... but do I miss crafting, so I decided to have a gander at some of the challenges this week and this is what I came up with...
I used jillibean soup papers - homemade 6 bean soup - the giraffe stamp is from Flonzcraft and the sentiment stamp was a freebie from a magazine. Layered them all up on red card and mounted on a white card base.
I used the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches and the animals theme from Charisma Cardz this week, as my inspriration.
Even though this is a very simple card, after so long not making anything it was a lot of fun to get something done again, now I just have to find time - or say screw it to the housework and make time, lol - where I'm not so exhausted, to make more than one card every 3 months!
