Thinking of you

Not much crafting here atm - not feeling too great with a cold and sore throat - keep having coughing fits and hardly any sleep last night. Anyway, I've just managed one card.

This is for sketch 30 on Cards and things:

I've used the colours for this week's Design Dollies colour challenge: 'black, yellow and turquoise'.

It's also for :

Simple doodles 17: 'you're on my mind' - thinking of you
Cupcake 90: 'buttons'
Pink elephant 66: 'recipe: yellow, designer paper and buttons'

Papers are BG offbeat and the sentiment is a Hobbycraft stamp.

They say that cheats never prosper!

Think ink Tuesday 19 on Artful inkables - 'makeover' - was just right for this card. It is a bit of a cheat really. For my sale at WEF on Friday evening I wanted to make an easel card as a sample for anyone wishing to order one.

With all that was going on with John having been in hospital and lack of sleep etc I just didn't really feel like starting one from scratch, so I did a makeover on a card that originally was made for Easter. This time the card is for a birthday - and the inside within the easel is different from the original card.

The stamp is a lovely Stampotique one, the papers are BG and the flowers Craftime, with the addition of some punched edging and ribbons.

I'm linking for a few other challenges, but if you think it's cheating because it's not completely new, then I'll understand if it's not acceptable:
