Elphine House Australia Challenge - Dog Days of Summer!

Hope your all having a nice day! This is my second post for the day as i totally forgot about my Crafty Calendar post on Saturday..yes i know..i am a bit all over the place with this Auto Immune Hemolytic Anemia. I am feeling really exhausted and fall asleep all over the place! It looks like i am going to have to get back on the Steroids as my bloods still dropping and if i cant manage without the steroids then i am going to have to have my Spleen removed. Fingers crossed it wont come to that but if it does i will just have to get on with it.

Anyway here is my DT card for the new challenge over at Elphine House Australia.
The challenge theme this time round is "Dog Days of Summer"

Brain on Holiday!!

This week my brain is obviously on holiday...on Saturday the new challenge at Crafty Calendar went live. I got the challenge blog post all written up and scheduled ready to go and decided to post on my personal blog on the Saturday morning... well not only did i forget, i thought i could remember doing it! I had and uploaded my pictures so i did go to do it...just i thought i had done it all! Dont ask how i could have forgotten to do a whole post. I have had a bad week with my health so not been online much so never thought a thing about it until i was looking down my "posts" page earlier. What a dummy!!  I think i will blame my medication....well thats my excuse and i am sticking to it!

So here is my card, just a little bit late.....ok a big bit late!
The theme over at Crafty Calendar is "Teddy Bears Parade" and we are sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts this month. I couldn't do without WOC for all my flowers, lace and everything else that happens to slip into my basket!
Here is my card recipe
Image from Wild Rose Studio
Papers - My Minds Eye
Dies - Tim Holtz Vintage Lace, Sizzix Circle Dies
Embellishments - Flowers from Wild Orchid Craft, Tulle and pearls from my stash.

Here is another couple of views!
