Let me start this post with a sending out of virtual hugs and best wishes to all of you throughout the world. It's so very hard watching the news and dealing with all the heartache. Then looking at the practical side and trying to deal with new laws coming out daily from the government on what is and isn't legal.
For us John is still working as he does much needed maintenance on government housing. Elysha is home full time as all her programs have closed and at times it's very hard to explain whats happening to someone who is so young mentally.
We also have John's brother staying with us most of the time with his dog as he too is developmentally delayed and doesn't really understand the rules and the changes daily.
I'm not able to babysit as Elysha's in that risk category and I stepped back last week. This is probably the hardest thing out of all this for me as I do love the unbridled joy and love of the youngest ones. Not anything major I know but realistically they have been my life line this last year after all the family losses. We will survive it and my boys and their wives are wonderful putting up with my nightly FaceTime sessions.
We have made this challenge Spring/Autumn so that both sides of the world are covered. But of course I went Spring as Im never keen on the cooler months.
I decided to colour and make two cards with the same image.
Printed on the laser printer these images are from Bugaboo, and they were very kindly supplied to each of the Design Team and Bugaboo are also offering a gift voucher for the winner of this challenge.
I love this teapot with flowers in it and enjoyed colouring with Copics.
I decided to use the Tim Holtz deckle die. I also put a layer of bright yellow fun foam cut with the same die behind to lift that layer a bit. No sentiment.
With this image I did a one layer printed image, coloured with Copics.
Added some pretty enamel dots, again no sentiment as the image fills the card.
Having a rotten time taking photos, usually have one in each lot thats at a funny angle but they all photographed with differing heights from end to end. I tried three times then just gave up.
Okay now it's time to go to The Flower Challenge Blog and check out the pretty creations from the Design Team. Then get into the flow and make a card or two.
Stay healthy everyone and here a couple of good feeling photos
