Can you believe that today is the last day of May, and here in Australia it is also
the last day of autumn. I have lost track of the days of late, partly because I had a
short spell in hospital early this week. I have osteoporosis and arthritis, and once
again have a tiny fracture in my spine. I have to use a walking frame for a while,
and am on quite strong painkillers which make me feel 'woozy'. This is not
the first time I have been in this situation, and unfortunately it probably
won't be the last. I do hate being like this!
On Monday one of my friends, Pamela, celebrates her birthday. I am pretty sure
she will be in Sydney with her family this weekend, so it is safe to show you
the card I made for her.
I absolutely adore this pretty paper, so I designed the card so that the
paper was the dominant element. Pamela is an avid gardener, so I
think she will love the flowers and butterflies.
Inside my card matches the front. Pamela loves purple.
The DP is heavily glittered, but I also smothered the die-cut butterflies,
and part of the greeting on the front with Stickles.
