Falling to pieces

It's been all quiet on the blogging front for me this week as I had a little procedure in hospital on Wednesday that didn't go well and left me feeling rather sore, so when I saw todays' CASual Fridays challenge - Falling to Pieces - it seemed quite apt, as I have been falling to pieces somewhat for the last couple of days!

However I did get a very nice pick me up, as when I felt well enough to sit up and have a look at the laptop this afternoon, I discovered that was the August prize winner over on Less is More

Here's hoping that this is the start of a good weekend and that things start to get back to normal around here.

As the CASual Friday challenge seemed apt, but not too complex while I'm still feeling a bit icky, I decided to have a go at making a card for it and this is it.

I stamped the leaf  from waltzingmouse 3 times onto some my minds eye paper using brown ink.  I cut them out and layered them onto a piece of the same my minds eye paper but this time from a 12x12 pad so the leaves were bigger and brighter, with brown card behind to tie it together.   I added 3 orange gems from Anabelle stamps (they were actually the prize I won on their challenge a few weeks back) and finished with a sentiment in brown, also from waltzingmouse stamps.

Right, am off for another lie down now.
