I am sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. I’m sure you understand the saying ‘it never rains – it pours!’ and that was this case this past week.

c6kraftbajafriendLast week I had a touch of the flu and what I thought to be a bit of a fibromyalgia flare up – well the flu went after dosing up on some flu medication but the pain stayed.

It seems I’ve aggravated the slipped discs in my spine again and they are giving me all sorts of grief!  I am still in pain although its now not as bad as it was last weekend and Tuesday. I am having some Bowen Massage Therapy which is helping I just wish it would work quicker!

Last class I had they asked if I could convert one of my small 4×4 gift cards into a regular C6 card.  Thankfully this one was very easy to convert  – I just made the piece of the parisian Breeze floral paper a little longer and extended the Kraft piece.

Stamps: Great Friend
Ink: Mellow Moss, Baja Breeze
Paper: Baja Breeze, Kraft, Whisper White, Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Papers
Accessories: Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals, Eyelet Border Punch

This makes a very quick and easy card and I think I’ll go through the other Designer Series Papers to make more of this design in other colour combinations.


  1. Sorry to hear you haven’t been well Leonie. I hope the Bowen therapy starts to work soon and the pain starts to ease. It is never fun to be in pain and you sound so busy, so I am amazed you manage to keep on going. Take care of yourself.
    I love your card and I just had a quick look at the smaller version too. They are both so lovely. Those colours look so great together and don’t you just love the Parisian Breeze papers. I’m sure your ladies loved making this.
    Enjoy your week.

  2. Hope u r up and abt fighting fit soon Leonie. I love this card. Personally I think I have under estimated Kraft as a colour and love it the more I see it. The card is subtle and elegant. Beautiful!!

  3. Hope you are feeling better soon.The flu and lots of viruses are going around here, now that school has been in session for a few weeks. Hang in there, and hope you are back in the swing of things soon!
