Do not disturb....

Morning all and welcome to some lovely new folks who've joined us on this crazy ride!

Feeling a bit funny this morning, this is the first morning in almost 2 weeks where I've not had to go into school to do something (been there every day since 2nd November with Sponsored Bounce and then counting sponsor money and taking in orders for the kids' Christmas cards!) and I now I have a very long to do list but am lacking either the energy or motivation to do any of it!

Anyway, on to today's card. I was asked to make a "Just Because" card and this seemed like the perfect image and I found a sentiment in a Kaisercraft set that went very well with it. Just in case you can't see it, it says "Friends are the most important ingredient in this recipe of life".

And, this is the first time I have managed to do one of those swirly flower type things! Always thought they were a bit too faffy. I've admired them on other folks' cards but couldn't do them myself. Well - ta-da, there it is :)
