The dreaded lurgy - AGAIN!

What is it with this time of year and illnesses! Everyone seems to be coughing, sneezing, or ill with a stomach bug! Well in my case it's the later, yep I spent my day off today in bed trying to catch up on sleep and get myself pulled together after a hairy night shared with a bucket! I just can't seem to shake the bug off, considering it's the second time in three weeks since I've been like this! So I have to admit due to my state and having felt very sorry for myself today I haven't even had the energy to make anything! I did make this little card a few days ago, which is quite fitting for this post! It's also for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, which is to "create a scene"...

I used:
* Magnolia Pond Background Stamp
* Get Well Tilda Stamp
* Sentiment Stamp from Woodware
* Distress Inks to colour
* Flower Punches from Woodware
* Gems from stash

Tilda and her bench are both cut out and decoupaged onto the card, but as I haven't took a photo from the side you can't see the raised effect.

Thanks all so much for the lovely comments you've left on my blog recently, they really cheered me up tonight! Hope I'll be feeling better tomorrow to get a bit of crafting in. Take care, and watch out for the dreaded lurgy lol!

Hope you're feeling better soon - I think you're entitled to feel sorry for yourself when it's the
2nd time in 3 wks. Great card, I love the way you have stamped on the torn paper for the background - it looks fab.
