For fun

It's been a tiring day. It started off with a doctor's appointment for John which led to a trip to A & E because the doc thought the swollen leg could well be a DVT. We eventually got back home just after 7 and have got to go back to the DVT clinic either tomorrow or the next day to confirm whether it is DVT or not. So all my plans for cardmaking went out of the window today - and John is much more important - but I'm just making a couple of cards now to help unwind.

This card is for the recipe on For Fun challenges:  1 senti as the main image, 2 different ribbons and 3 brads or buttons.

The papers are Forever Friends spring time, other bits, including doiley, from stash and another stamped image made with one of the PM moments of faith stamps, coloured with copics. The buttons were from Poundland - I like these because they are not too raised, so should escape having to pay the extra postage for large letter stamp.

I've used the sketch for CRAFT 143:

This is also for:

Deep ocean 20: spring
Top tip Tuesday 71: stitches
Card and scrap 26: use buttons
City crafter 98: extra! extra! - use two or more ribbons and 9 or more words
Ribbon carousel 42: anything goes
The pretty little ribbon shop 7: anything goes
Crafts and me 72: shades of spring
Fairytale 35: spring
