Willow for Sarah

It's late so I'll just post this quickly before I go to bed. Here's Whiff of Joy's Willow with her basket, and this time she's wishing my friend Sarah a great spring birthday. Also used on this card is my Fiskars threading water punch, diamond Stickles and a greeting from Lili of the Valley, as well as ribbon given to me by Georgina and some buttons from my stash. Oh and the image is die-cut with the largest of my new Spellbinders deckled oval set, and coloured with Copic markers.

Basic Grey "spring" (Lemonade collection papers)
Creatalicious "pink, green, yellow and blue" - and it's supposed to be an Easter card, but I don't do Easter cards so I hope this card for an Easter birthday will be acceptable.
Creative Card Crew "spring"
Sketch Saturday's sketch
Whiff of Joy "recipe": 3 buttons, 2 papers and 1 ribbon

It's nice to feel better after the cheerful bunch of flu germs I brought back from Bali which has laid me low since we got back. My temperature is normal today for the first time in nearly a week, and I've had that kind of convalescent energy which means that you start stuff, then have to keep sitting down in a cold sweat and resting before your legs give way. I'm surrounded by clean washing which is hung up to air and be ironed. That could take a while. But at least the bedding is clean, and I put it all back on in one go. I didn't have to lie down on it once! But oh, the price I paid for pretty finger and toe nails was high. Stupid, pretty, sniffing, artistic Balinese girl. Grr.
