Wee Sparkle

I managed to get a card done (it only took me 3 days lol).  Man I am struggling with these migraines, they are SO bad and now I have MAV (migraine associated vertigo) so can honestly say I am dizzy.  It’s just awful – I really don’t know what to do with myself.  The doctor booked me off work but I refused (being a hero lol) but now the MAV has kicked in I don’t think I will be able to drive so it looks like I will have to give in – not a happy bunny, I don’t like being off work (scared I’m gonna miss something haha).

Anyhoo, enough moaning and groaning, here’s the card that ended up being a marathon!  The stamp is from the newest Whimsy Stamps release and is called Wee Sparkle, isn’t she just the cutest??  The sentiment is from the Whimsy Friendship Notables 2 set.

I tried a new colour combo for the hair this time – YR24, E53, E51, YR30, and quite like how it turned out.

The papers are Pion Design (love these).  The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, as is the butterfly metal embellishment.  Oh and I used that delish Top Stitching Thread from the Ribbon Girl again – love this stuff.

I’ve popped this card and another in my Etsy shop

  45. What a beautiful card! You have such a wonderfully light touch.

    Sorry to hear about the MAV, as a fellow sufferer I know how debilitating it can be. Took 2 years of waking up violently dizzy 4/5 times a week before they finally figured it out. It's basically managed right now with some meds, but the weather has been so crazy over here (barometric pressure changes are one of the main triggers - for me anyway) that some mornings even the meds don't help. That's one of the reasons I'm the closing manager at work, my mornings are always iffy.

    I hope you find relief soon.
