Well, I am unwell again! I don’t think I actually got over my last bought of illness, and now have a full on ‘flu. Jamie had it last week and seems to be picking up everything going around from preschool, and of course I always seem to get everything he has – nothing like sharing it around the family!! I am really disappointed because I had so many things that I wanted to get done over the Easter break, and now find myself spending a large part of it in bed. However, I can’t stay in bed for long without feeling the need to get into those new stamp sets 🙂 they are just calling out to me! So I have tried to keep it simple by CASEing (or doing an exact copy) of a card from the New Catalogue. But typically when I try to case something, it doesn’t turn out the same!
Anyway, this is from Page 79, using the Spring Song stamp set. I just knew I had to get this set as soon as I saw it, but this is the first chance I have had to play with it. And with so many beautiful new stamp sets I have to admit that I am having problems deciding which one to use on any given day. 🙂
I hope all of you have a safe and enjoyable Easter, and it’s back to bed for me!
