You're the Cream in my Coffee

Hope you are all having a good weekend so far.  The weather here is glorious again today tho I have yet to step outside the house - I have had a terrible night time cough for weeks now and all the coughing has made all my muscles in my chest and back ache, and to top it all today my incisional hernia is giving me pain too.  You nurses and medics out there will know what I am harping on about - they are not sure if it is epigastric or incisional but because its not bothering me too much are leaving it well alone for now.

My card for today I am not entirely happy with - dunno why - just something not quite right about it.

I have followed Sketch Saturday's fab sketch and followed Totally Papercrafts photo inspiration ( I do enjoy these colour challenges as it makes me think out of the box so to speak).

Luv a Latte rubber stamp from Sugar Nellie;
PMs~ Ivory, Blush, Oatmeal, Dusky Pink, Caramel, Cinnamon, China Blue, Cornflower, Honeycomb, Spice, Cool Grey 1 & 2;
Gingham DP is Pink Petticoat, Floral DP is Melody Ross, other card from stash;
Sentiment CG and
Sissix Embossing Folder.



  1. Well I think it's a lovely card, the image and sentiment are perfect together.
