Better late than never!!

Well, good morning all you stampers, I'm afraid I'm very late posting today. My darling daughter Kimmie was very sick yesterday and ended up going to the hospital emergency last night. After a 6 hour wait, during which time she was in agony, the doctor has concluded that she probably has diverticulitis. She is feeling better this morning, but is far from well.

You may wonder what that has to do with me not posting. Well, I had come here to stay for a few days and help her with some stamp related work, but having only just got back from Florida, I had only managed to get my card finished before I came, but was going to have her take a picture for me, etc. Well, since she was so ill, that didn't happen, poor girl. She has however done it for me now, so here we are.

Anyway, the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge for this week is to use flowers on your card, whatever kind of flowers you like, be it in your papers, or embellishments or whatever. Our Divine Miss Andrea is the hostess for this weeks' challenge and if you enter your card and it is randomly chosen, you will win the Swinging Emmylou stamp as this is the stamp Andrea has used on her card. Just go to Kimmie's Challenge Blog and link your card up there to be in with a chance to win the stamp.

For my card I used Lisette! I used Really Rust for the card base and Barely Banana to mat the DCWV paper onto. I cut out Lisette and set her onto a piece of the papers cut out with my Nesties. Of course I used my Copics to colour Lisette. I added some Prima Flowers here and there and some Dusty Durango ribbon.

Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to make a card with flowers on for the challenge.
