Argh!!!... There are just not enough hours in the day or week even!
Its been ages since I've been able to sit down and make a card. Even this one is a simple one which didn't take too long to do. More faffing with the hand held sewing machine than anything else caused me major time delays.
Anyways... I had to call in sick today at work. I hate doing it, but I couldn't breathe overnight, my throat felt constricted, I could hardly swallow and I kept getting hot flushes even though I was freezing cold. Been to the Drs who said I have a viral infection and have to ride it out!
I still feel like death warmed up, but Poppy went to bed early and I sat down at the PC put New Moon on, and switched off completely.
This is the first time I've inked this cutie up. I've had her in my stash since she was released by Kellie over at Tickled Pink Stamps. Her name is Ivy and she is from the first collection of Lil Lolita stamps and can be found here.

I'm entering this card into a few challenges and they are
Friday Sketchers - Brilliant sketch by Jeanette this week
Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge - Stitching
A Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes
Copic Creations 35- Shading ON or AROUND your image
ABC Challenge - D is for Distressing
I've used card and paper from stash - sorry I have no idea where or who it is by, they were all in a box of scraps.
Image I've coloured with Copics
Flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts which have been glamour misted and then dusted
Lace is from Quixotic Paperie
Stitched using a hand held machine (which is a pain in the bottom to use!)
