stamptacular sunday challenge

not much on for me today other than a few hours at work this afternoon, the visit to the drs yesterday was ok, got to have more blood tests and wait to see another specialist to try and find out the cause of my anaemia, for the past 6 months i've been prodded and poked by numerous drs and had umpteen different oscopies and scans to find out why i'm not making normal blood cells, i was off work for 12 weeks as i was sleeping for up to 20 hours a day some days, it was debilitating, though things are improving with the help of the iron pills and i am slowly increasing my hours at work though it will be a while yet before i'm ready to go back full time.
right thats enough of my waffling on this is turning into an essay!!!,

over at the stamptacular challenge blog this week the challenge is a colour combo of "black and white plus one " colour of your choice, well i think i had every colour of the rainbow out on the table before deciding on mint green, i think it just gives the black and white a bit of a lift,

the paper is dovecraft, the image is a gorjuss girl coloured with my promarkers, the ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are punched with an x-cut punch, the roses are from wild orchid crafts, i tinted the edges of the mulberry roses with my promarkers to match the colours of the image.

Thanks for popping in

Hi Helen

Beautiful card and such wonderful colours to put together. You have coloured the image brilliantly.

Sorry to hear of the hassles you are having re getting your anaemia sorted out. Sleeping 20 hours a day wow- now crafting I could believe but who wants to be asleep that long! You definitely need to get that sorted.

Hope things improve for you.

Take care. Love Jules xx
