I’m back – finally, I hear you all say! 🙂 Very nasty ‘flu that one.  Jamie, Doug and I have all had it and it has taken us weeks to get back on our feet.  And unfortunately stamping wasn’t at the top of my list of things that needed to be done, in fact for about 2 weeks I just didn’t even have the energy to sit for long enough to make a card.  Well, I have lots of catching up to do 🙂

Todays card is inspired by a lot of different things.

Firstly, the inspiration behind the colours was this beautiful bunch of flowers given to me for my birthday recently by my very special brother Rod.  Aren’t they just gorgeous?

Secondly, my fantastic upline Larisa O’Donnell is always coming up with such beautiful work and is a constant inspiration.  You can check out Larisa’s blog for yourself.    She did a card using the mosaic technique, which I have never tried so thought it was time I did so.

And thirdly, another amazing lady, Shelli Gardner (Cofounder and CEO of Stampin’ Up!) is now running a creative challenge from her blog and this particular challenge is just to use the word Celebrate.

So here it is!  And what are we celebrating, you might ask?  For my family, I think it has to be getting over the ‘flu and actually being able to get on with life again.  Maybe the warmer weather.  Spring.
