Another Mask....

I still have my chest infection and have spend the last 2 days back at the doctors as they were very concern about my breathing..they've changed my antibiotics which are making me feel very sick all the time so haven't done any card making for nearly a week...hopefully by the weekend I will feel better.

For some reason Mr Blogger wouldn't let me leave comments on blogs yesterday but he does seem to be behaving himself now!

So I have another of my samples cards to show you using masks, core-dination paper and a sanding block, the image is a really old Penny Black stamp which I have stamped onto kraft card and used Prismacolor pencils. I've used the circle border die from Simon Says and  also a Memory Box die Fremont Crest on the corners....

They are forecast lots of snow for us tomorrow in Somerset but fingers crossed  we dont get too much!!!  Hope you are all keeping warm in the cold weather.

Anne

Love the colours you've used on this pretty card and the effect of the mask background with the die cuts. Hope you are feeling better today. Spotted snow on the Blackdowns as I drove out this morning!

So sorry to hear you're still poorly Anne, some of these viruses really do seem to be hanging about, but I do hope the new antibiotics do the trick.

The colours on this card are absolutely divine and the images beautiful.

Back from my little jaunt, went to Tesco's and there was no space in the car park, went on here and I think Mr blogger is ignoring me. Hopefully this will show up. I love your card, smashing mix of old PB and modern die cuts. Snow has just started. xx Flora
