Doilies & Flowers - MTTC DT

Yay !! at last the antibiotics seem to be doing some good, I appear to be on the road to recovery from this infection, I can at least breathe a little easier, although not great I'm getting there.  Hoping to get back in the craft room later this week to start catching up again, thankfully, because of my various disabilities I do tend to work a few weeks in advance for my DT projects, just in case I have a bad spell and am unable to craft at all.

This time at My Time To Craft our theme is Doilies and Flowers, now doilies are not something I had in my stash, so poor George was despatched to the local supermarket to hunt out a pack of doilies and dutifully returned with some very large oblong ones, so i've used the corner of one on my card, daubed it with some pale mustard colour chalk ink as it was a very bright white, the retro style papers and senti were some freebies I had,  I finished off with gems and organza ribbon.

I like the colour combo on this card very much Wendy. And well done to George for even knowing what a doiley was! Good to hear you're feeling a bit better.

Thank you for the get well wishes,I had laryngitis and it's now turned into a chest infection, this is my third lot of antibiotics and steroids and coming into my 4th week.
I am sorry your not well either Wendy sounds like you have something similar, but pleased to hear the tabs are working for you.
I am jealous your sat out in the sun, make the most of it hun, and hope you are soon feeling much better.
