Eleanor & Pickles Mardis Gras

Hi Folks
Not only do I still have a headache, now I have the "runs", I am thinking this is
because of my new Medication and not the horrible bug which lots of
you have got/have.  I have managed to do some crafting, but don't think I can manage much more
at the moment.
 I needed a card that could be posted in a ordinary envelope, so not lots of embellishments and this
is what I came up with, not easy for me to do a card, without loads of flowers and bling.
I have used a Lacy Sunshine image,
Eleanor & Pickles Mardis Gras and you can buy it  at
I hope you like.
I am sorry I forgot to make a note of the copics colours I used
but as you can see, it is mostly Orange

Gorgeous card Janet! And Eleanor and Pickles have been coloured beautifully. It's a shame that postage is limiting what we can add to some of our cards now, but at least it gives us a challenge to make our cards just as good but with less embellies.

Really do hope you're feeling much better soon. Very wise to stay indoors. It's snowing here too but I should think you have it worse there...and colder. Keep yourself warm and lots of rest...Lexie's orders, lol.
