Morning Everyone,

I hope you are all having a good week.  Mine's not been so good.  My daughter fainted whilst coming down the stairs on Monday night and banged her head at the bottom.  We spent over 10 hours in A&E   before being transferred to a ward. I arrived back home at 8 a.m. in the morning, had an hour or so sleep, then went back for another 2 hours and she's still waiting for an MRI scan whilst I am typing.  It was horrendous in A&E with ambulance crews having to queue in corridors with their patients until a bed became free.  No wonder they take a long time to arrive sometimes, they're all queuing in the hospital! This isn't a rant about the crews, they do a great job, it's the system and how they're so short staffed etc etc.

Anyway moaning bit over, it's time for another challenge over at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project using your favourite Flora or Fauna (and don't forget to tell us why it is your favourite please).

I do love both, but nearly always tend to colour Fauna rather than flowers as they are cuter and I do like cute.  My little cuties do often tend to be holding flowers though as in the card I made for this challenge.  Generally, I use flowers more as an embellishment.

I used a fairly old LOTV Posy Trio stamp, but only 2 of them, coloured with copics and a LOTV sentiment.  I cut part of the front of the card off and shaped both edges with the Die-namics stitched scallop basic edges 2 set.  The paper is from the Works and little sequins were added to match.

The sponsor for the challenge is
