I’m sorry for being so late with my post for this week’s charisma cardz challenge but I haven’t been very well since yesterday. I was sent home from work as I had a “funny turn”. I become light headed and everything was spinning. I couldn’t walk straight or even focus – I can tell you it was very scary! It began at 11am and lasted until 6pm – I really thought it was never going to end. I am still not feeling 100% but I’m so grateful that the world had now stopped spinning lol! I went to see my GP and as all my bloods etc were fine he thinks its due to the fact that I don’t eat regularly enough!! My husband is in the background saying he told me so!! I will have to try and remember to eat lunch from now on (which is something I never do) and have my tea before 10pm, which is my regular routine at the moment lol! So a slapped wrist all around today haha! Anyway enough of my ramblings and I need to be quick cos hubby has told me I can only stay on here for 10 minutes!
This week’s theme over at charisma has been set by Sally and she has chosen “bling and sparkles” so a lovely easy one for you this week. I decided to go clean and simple again – here is my card:
I used a gorgeous butterfly digi from DigiStamp Boutique which was released in March and it is part of the “butterflies” collection, which includes two other images. I decided to cut around the butterfly and had a ‘happy accident’ cos I cut off it’s antenna (poor thing) but then I had the idea to add some bling instead so that was my bling and sparkles sorted lol! I coloured the butterfly with promarkers and graduated the colour outwards, which looks much more defined IRL.
We have three sponsors this week:
