Crazy days ...

Hi there ...
just popping in with a couple of things ...
It's been a bit of a crazy day ... I heard last night that a friend from way back just lost her husband ... I think it has been on my mind all day and I just couldn't seem to connect today though I have had a lot to do ... everything seemed 'difficult' ...
 Anyway, I have a little card ... one of my fairies again ... which I made last night ... I'm not that happy with it ... I did it for the Play Date Cafe challenge ... really just to challenge myself to use those colours all together - and I missed the deadline anyway. This is the inspirational picture with the colours ...




Sometimes I over-think things and sometimes I plough ahead instead of ... stepping back ... so this is my card ...



The background paper is turquoise ... but it looks blue here ...




I like the little fairy though ... 
I have been working away getting my things together for Club tomorrow ... thanks to the kindness of you blog friends I have a lot of things to take in ... I have decided this week to give them all a piece of card (5x7) and let them decorate it any which way using papers, stickers, ribbons, buttons etc., Then I will mount their art work onto canvas so they have a picture to hang when they get home.
This is my effort - to give them an example ... just made with scraps and bits I had around ... and very hastily ..



I know that their creations will just be fabulous ... and mostly that they will have a lot of fun ...

Finally before I go ... I have just read about Lauren Meader and her beautiful daughter Alexa both being so ill ... you can read about it Here ... my heart goes out to them and my prayers are with them ... please remember them in your prayers too ...

Till soon

Ros

I love your card for PDCC; it's gorgeous. I can tell you; PDCC is missing a gorgeous creation...!!!
The example for your Thursday group is beautiful.
You made it in a hurry? Well that didn't occur to me. It's perfect.

Love and hugs,
Stella

Both of your cards are perfect Ros! Just love the little green leaves on the fairy card and how the little bird is perched on the rope in the second one! By the way, I know how you feel about your friends, it's always difficult to hear such bad news, it always makes you see that life can be tough, so we will all have to try and make the best of each and every day given! Take care, Ira x
