A quick card

Hi Everybody - first of all I wish to say Thank You to the lovely people who e-mailed to ask if I was ok since I had not been around for a while.  I was feeling most unwell.  I had picked up a virus and it left me unable to do very much.  I am feeling much better but still very tired and the awful cough has almost gone.  Today is the first  day that I have ventured into the craft room and I put together this little card for a friend whose birthday is coming up.  I had bought these little Nellie Snellen corner dies  and I do like the effect.  The die on the middle is a Cheery Lynn and the card is of course Centura Pearl.  I am hoping now to get back to commenting on all your lovely cards as I have missed that.  Hope that you all are safe from the dreadful flooding and n0body has sustained any damage to your homes.

I noticed you hadn't been around for a while Marie-Louise but thought it was because of this time of year when everything is manic. So sorry you haven't been well - it's surprising how many bloggers have been ill with the same sort of thing in various parts of the UK. I do hope you are on the mend. You have made a really beautiful card, it is so effective in the white with just a little colour.

Big hugs Sue Pxxx
