Our Daily Bread

Good afternoon everyone in Blogger land. I hope the weather where you are at is better than here, nothing but fog, fog and yes more fog. Can't see you finger infront of you so nothing else to do as all housework was finished yesterday but craft, but alas my poor body has other things on its mind, I am now loaded with a bad head cold. I have went through 3 toilet rolls this morning alone so Mr Andrex Puppy, keep the supply coming :-)
So long for me getting the housework done early :-(

Anyway, inbetween sneezes I have managed to finish of this card which follows the sketch by Caryn over at Spoonfull of Sugar challenge and also the Whiff Of Joy challenge this week was to use a die cut.

Now isn't she the sweetest little girl, holding her bread and I wondered what saying would be appropriate for this image and the Lord's Prayer came to mind. Ok I'm loaded with the cold, the weather is poor to say the least but I have a loving family, a roof over my head and plenty of crafty friends, so this is my daily bread.

This is the finished card in all its glory. I distressed the edges of the paper and used faux stitching around the sides that are stuck onto the card. Used my nestabilities for the frame, and wrote the saying myself. The little girl is sitting on a mushroom as I love mushrooms, especially with my saturday night fry up!!

Images: WOJ Girl with bread & WOJ mushroom (both from their autumn kit)

Papers: K & Company

Colours: Copic sketch & Stabilito fine pens

Please leave a comment, good or bad, so I can go and visit your blog, its always nice to know that someone has looked :-)

Morning love... I've not had a chance to visit anyone of late as I've really not had any time as I've been spending most of it helping Rob.

However, I'm taking the day off tomorrow to go to the SECC... not that there are any pennies in my purse for me to spend...

Shame you & your mum aren't coming till Fri but if I can mangle another day away from the office then I will give you a call on your mobile & I'll come meet up with you for a good old catch up.

Big hugs & hope you're feeling better soon.
