One card three challenges

Hello everyone before I get onto this card I would like to thank you for the lovely comments you have left me they are truly uplifting and at the moment I need a little bit of encouragement.  I am afraid I have been struggling with my depression these last few days and earlier this evening I just thought that I should give in to it but if I did it would mean that I could no longer talk to my lovely blogging buddies so I am trying to fight it as much as I can. 

Anyway enough of me let me tell you about this card I made last evening. I have used Funky Fairies backing papers from the 'New Love' collection and my Elusive Images flower stamps stamped in Versafine onto the same papers to make the centre piece. I have distressed the edeges of everything, the flowers the mount and the card itself.

The challenges I am entering this into are:

Funky Fairies         No Image

Carisma Cardz        Distressing

Crafty Creations        Blue

I think that my card covers these themes and I hope you like it thank you all once again and big hugs.

Your card is beautiful Lorraine. I do hope you're feeling better soon!

Beryl said...

I am soo tempted by those stamps and now I've seen this lovely card I think I'm in danger of giving (despite telling myself I've got enough stamps to open a shop). The blues on this card are beautiful. Keep fighting that depression Lorraine - for our sakes as well as yours - we'd miss seeing you and your lovely work.
Beryl xx

I wish I could find the right words to lift you Lorraine but, having been there myself twice, I know that sometimes it seems impossible to fight! All I can say is that I am willing you with all my might to get well and I pray that God will hold you in his hands during these difficult times as He has done so often for me ;o)
Big hugs, Tara xx
