Good Morning bloggers, it's good to be back in blogland. My operation went well and I am on the road to recovery, there was a lot of swelling and bruising but that has almost gone now, still in some pain bit it's getting less each day, nights seem to be the worst. I am back at the hospital on Tuesday for my results, so let's hope it's good news, I am feeling positive about it.
So back to this morning's challenge, It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Susan's turn to host and she would like to see 'Cupcakes/Cakes'
Here is what I did, I baked a cake using a Lili Of The Valley stamp called Mix It & Make It, and decided to use watercolours to paint the image, I'm enjoying the change at the moment from my Spectrum Noirs, then I distressed everything with Distress Inks, and for once I didn't stick to my usual symmetrical, even layout. As this is the first card I have made for a couple of weeks I felt like I wanted to just play around with the components and have fun with it, not worrying too much about everything been neat and even, yes I am a bit OCD with things, neat lines, lists, everything has a place, colour co-ordination etc.......... I enjoyed the experience of filling my card with lots of bits and pieces.
Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.
