Good morning my crafty friends

Thank you for your kind comments on yesterday's card

I am really struggling with card making at the moment and may have to miss the odd day or two, would you believe the hot weather can be as bad/painful for me as the cold!  Plus I do feel terrible not visiting your lovely blogs of late and I do hope to rectify this as soon as possible

I have wanted this particular SU punch for quite sometime and when it did arrive I had to get hubby to punch the papers for me as my hands would not allow.  I have to take a double dose of pain relief when I make a video then I'm as much use as a chocolate fireguard afterwards, but, I'd rather battle on than sit and not do anything but at times it does get too much for me.  My husband will say I'm a fighter so just as well I am me thinks!

One punch and 2 pieces of 6"x 6" papers to make this week's card, oh yes and one husband!

All the ingredients etc are in the video

Thank you for watching and visiting today, please stay safe

  1. My favourite colour!! With a change of sentiment, this is a good idea for many occasions! Thanks for sharing this morning!
    I really don't think anyone would mind you missing a day or two - you need to do what's best for you! Your inner fight says Yes, your body says No - listen to what your body is telling you!!!
    Whatever you do - take care!

  2. Oh Purple - my duaughter's favorite! She painted her walls lavnedar and the carpet is deep purple - but she's happy! Your card using the SU! punch is fantastic - and gives your card a lot of drama (the good kind!) I'm in that same weird cardmaking funk and just not mojo-vated at all. I think it's a combination of heat, Coronavirus, summer! Hugs to you!

  3. A fabulous card - I love the design and as LynH said, it's a design that can be used for so many occasions.
