On the Road to Recovery/ Runway Inspired Challenge

I'm so excited I had an idea for a card and managed to complete it! For those of you who are not Facebook friends with me, you won't have heard that I've been laid up with Shingles. It started off with 4 days of excruciating back pain, before the rash appeared. I thought I could distract myself with card making, but it was not to be. However today I think I may have turned a corner. Yippee!!!

This card is for the Runway Inspired challenge. I had to stop myself from using a butterfly, because you know I'm addicted! I didn't really have any little animal, so I thought of a bird (I think birds are one of my other weaknesses!).

I'm still on a water colour kick, so I did a soft wash on the  the tag and splattered a bit of the yellow and peacock Feathers  colour to tie it in. The Bird is from Penny Black - it's a christmas stamp called Nature's Best.

Ok, I think I might go now and curl up with my dogs and a good book!


  1. Wonderful take on the challenge. Going back and forth to see how many elements you included, brilliantly btw! So glad you're on the mend. Shingles is dreadful! And besides rest, not much you can do. Blessings!

  3. Love the contrast between the chevron background and the gorgeous pink tag! Just makes it pop, especially with that 'happy' die-cut! Thanks for joining us on the Runway Jenny!

  4. Love this...especially the cute bird and the zig zag background! Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway!
