Laugh like you just don't care

Hello everyone I hope you are all fine and dandy and weathered storm Doris OK she was a right angry thing wasn’t she. Anyway it seems a little warmer today and a lot less blustery.
My Mother is still in hospital she had taken a turn for the worse over the weekend and her kidneys have now shut down and she has the pneumonia back (caught from hospital this time) When I spoke to the Dr last she said it looks like this is the decline and although they are treating her for the infection it doesn’t look promising.
I have a card for you today  one that I made a good few weeks ago just haven’t had chance to post it due to everything going on. So as I am taking a couple of “quiet days” to get pain down to a manageable level I thought I would post it just to let you know I am still alive and kicking lol

The card is 8x8” and I have distressed and inked in my usual way then torn some parts of them to look even more shabby.

The image is called Dodi by Mo Manning (you can find all links at the end of this post)and I have coloured with a mix of my lovely pencils then masked the image off and created the background using distress inks and stencil brushes.

I printed the sentiment off with the papers and then added 3D tape to attach to the card then to embellish I added a large button with hessian threads tied in a bow.

To finish the card I made the insert with the papers from the front then added the uncoloured image and added a short sentiment to complete it

Hope you like it and hopefully I will see you soon
