It Takes Two...

Good morning! What a week....anyhow, I didn't see the time passing and almost forgot to add the card I'd made. This was a commissioned card for "a 21 year old fashion student called "Jodi" so this is what I came up with. It's also my Guest DT card for Allsorts this week where the theme is "It takes two" and that means you've to use just two colours along with a white base if you like.
I'm also sponsoring Allsorts this week so come on over and join in - you could win 4 of my digis from A Passion for Stamps !!

I've used my Mannequin digi image which you can find HERE at A Passion for Stamps and I've edged the image with my Tonic Studios  Daisy Border punch  and I think it looks like black lace. There are tiny dots of Stickles around the image and it is a lovely effect in real life.

Back to the week I've had... my brother, who had major surgery last year had a further operation last week and had a massive bleed the following day and was rushed back to theatre again. He has been very ill but thankfully is on the mend now but is very weak and tired.
Our younger son has had a terrible cold and was only able to get out of bed to go for exams.
Snow meant that we had to hurriedly change our work plans and then I got the awful cold myself. I had a day in bed (unheard of!!) and still feel terrible. It's only a bad cold but it has made me feel rotten.

Anyhow, it's Saturday again so I had a lie in and ,as usual, my lovely husband brought me poached egg and toast to bed for breakfast....I love Saturday mornings!!!

Oh, two more little things!
I was featured in last month's Cardmaking and Papercraft mag and got my super prize and a copy of the mag this week..

I won a lovely prize from Docrafts this week too and was really pleased with it....where am I going to put all the stuff??
