Remember me? I think this is the longest I've left it between posts, and I'm going slightly stir crazy here! I've not been out the house since Monday and instead I've been trying to think of ways to keep an active (once the spots from the Chicken Pox stopped hurting/itching) 4 1/2 yr old occupied! We've had a TV day, baking day, day playing in the garden and today it's been painting. On Monday grandad was still here (visiting for the weekend) but from Tues, it's just been the three of us (me, hubby and Emily) stuck in the house!
It's not been so good for hubby as he works from home, so trying to work with us here disturbing hasn't worked for him - Emily is getting better (and so sleeping a bit better) and has more energy, I'm tearing my hair out trying to keep her occupied and away from daddy. Is the picture getting clearer? I think all of us will be happy when she's back at school next week.
Anyway enough of my whinging, here's the first card I've made in a week. Still not sure of my colouring, Krista's images (Sassy or Saturated Canary digi) are wonderful, but so detailed - me thinks I've a lot more practicing to do!
Oh, and these were supposed to be a Christmas present, but I'm treating myself this week - I think I deserve it!!

Detail of image:
Sugar Nellie - Simply Sassy; Cinderella coloured with my Promarkers and chalked while still in the nestie for definition. A bit of glitz added with Stickles glitter glue.
Spots are from a Polkadoodles cd.
Embossed panel is a Cuttlebug embossing folder - D'vine swirls.
Martha Stewart punch
A couple of ribbons and pearls from my stash.
Sentiment from Craftwork Cards and I made the card blank.
So I hope you like and I'm sorry I've not been round your blogs so much, things should be back to normal next week.
Hope you are all well,
