Just Magnolia & Friday Sketchers

Firstly I would like to thank everyone for the wonderful comments and apologise for my spasmodic commenting in return. I am in the process of moving at the moment - to Germany - I want to spend some time with my son and his family. I am surrounded by packing cases that will go into storage until the move. I am taking as little as possible and am trying to dispose of what I don't need I am not a hoarder but what I have collected over the past 10 years is horrendous. Crafting stuff - not a problem - it's all going, trouble is I keep buying more because I don't know where I shall be able to buy thing when I arrive in Germany.
It didn't help when someone ran into the back of my car last week so I've now had to sort that out and yesterday morning I woke up with a sore throat, no voice and a splitting headache (I never get ill, must be the stress lol).
When I reach screaming point I just cut off, sit down and make a card - I'm not producing the best of cards at the moment but they have the most beneficial effects.

Enough of the rabbiting on to the card. This is Friday Sketchers sketch and Just Magnolia's paper piecing. Whilst sorting through my stamps I came across this Tilda I have hardly ever used and decided she would look good paper pieced and used the Magnolia background stamp, both of which are coloured with Copics. The papers (ancient) had no name on them and all else is from stash.

Chris,

Oh my, you have a lot on your plate right now! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I love your sweet card! You mentioned you don't think this is the best of your cards, but truly I think it is perfectly lovely.

I try not to hoard; I was a hoarder as a child and young adult, but I have learned to regularly purge my drawers, cabinets, and closets. I think I continually improve in my de-clutter goal EXCEPT when it comes to paper and craft supplies ;) I admire your ability to get rid of your supplies.

Sending you a big hug!
June
