Getting into the rhythm….

Hi everybody,
I didn’t realise that when I wrote I will away for a week, it would become three weeks instead. We were away to Sydney on the first week of school holidays when kids fell sick with flu followed by both me and my DH. We are just recovering from the flu. The fatigue after the flu is exhausting and the cough is till persistant. I am trying to get back into the rhythm but I think it will take a week more before we are 100% normal  and get back into the rhythm.
I received the Go to Sketches mag as a prize from Moxie Fab World  during the school holidays and its fantastic. All the sketches and inspirations are just beautiful. I so want to try out the sketches one by one. I was browsing through the Moxie Fab World blog and love the Botanical trend challenge. So I tried to make a card for the challenge. At the moment, I am mojoless. Seriously!  I am finding it hard to get my head to think creatively  lol! Anyway, here is what I made.

I used Pink Paislee’s Butterfly collection pattern paper and 3D stickers. Sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink’s Commnique Sentiments and cardstocks are also from Papertrey Ink. I wanted the beautiful botanical picture to the focal point.  A CAS card. Hope you like it. 
I am hoping to restart my card making soon. And I also want to see Harry Potter and  Jim Carry’s Mr. Popper’s Penguin. But it got to wait a few more days, I guess! My head is still spinning and generally exchausted. Feel so bad for my kids. My DD went back to school today. Teacher said she look so tired and could not tolerate the noise level that she had a headache. Teacher told her to sleep in the afternoon and now after coming back from school, she went straight to bed. She is just so exhausted.Poor girl. Its a bad bad virus!!!!
I can’t wait for spring to come. I want sunshine and colors so there is some happiness and energy at home. Glad to have blogged today. Thanks for reading through!
You all have a great day! See ya soon.
