Quiet Day Today

Hi all,
Today has been a quiet day in the house as Brian is not feeling too well and I am trying to keep quiet in the house as he is in bed resting, this is just one of the effects of the cemo therapy, it makes him feel quiet sick and tired some days, I do feel for him and I wish there was more I could do but sleep is the best therapy.
Thank you to all for the emails and enquires into how Brian is feeling I really appreciate them.

I got to go to my craft room as house work is out of the question and I got a few images coloured, tided the room and made this card (craft room a mess again).

I used an image from Pollycraft called Codi and some new papers I have had for ages and not used, in fact I had forgotten all about them till I was tidying up, I also have flowers (flowers I have used on the card) and butterflies to match.

I distressed ever inch of paper with distressing ink, I love my new distressing tool I purchased can you tell lol, I added faux stitching then layered it all up with foam pads.

Onto the inside and out with my new tool again lol, told you I love it, I thought it lacked a bit of something so I added a punchy bit to the bottom and adorned some more of those flowers and now I like it.
