Hello,

Big apologies for not blogging recently. It is going to be a bit hit and miss at the moment. As I am looking after relatives until they improve. Also, it is asthma season for me which is not good. But, I will still be visiting you all and fingers crossed making a card or two whenever I get the chance, so please bear with me.

Now, onto today's card for CCT challenge which is Red and Green. I have coloured my image with pencil and sansador. I have added some stickles too. I have distressed all my green papers with shabby shutters.

Thank you so much for looking and have a brilliant weekend wherever you are.
