Purple and Grey

What a week we have just had ... a trip to hosptal with the older daughter after an accident at school, then she was sick, and now i have a cold ... not much crafting has gone on here!
I have found a new digi stamp that I like - Darcie's dairies .. .they are really cute!!  This one is coloured in using my promarkers, and then I embossed the white cardstock and distressed it using distress inks.  The heart embossing has been sprayed with glimmer mist.  I added some gingham ribbon and layered a flower up, securing it with a brad.  Very simple really.

Its the school holidays so my crafting is going to be really restricted ... got a houseful from 8am every day!!!

Darling card, Cathy. Saw it on MIM and has to stop by. Right now I'm working on a grey card myself and this was inspiring.

Hope everyone in your household gets better quickly!!
