En Francais Sympathy

En Francais Sympathy G&J Jul'13 (4)Hello my friends!

Well … another morning in bed. Seems the severe ‘hayfever’ I had yesterday was actually the beginnings of a bad cold. Today I am hot & blocked up with a runny nose & scratchy throat. It is not super bad … but with a busy weekend ahead … including a wedding tomorrow, I thought I would take it easy this morning … have a little snooze & then get up this afternoon & do the baking I need for the weekend!? Sounds like a plan??? I am not wallowing … just being practical! 😉

En Francais Sympathy G&J Jul'13 (1)I do have a couple of sympathy cards to make … but that will have to wait until Monday. I also have a couple more to share after a recent ‘run’ of them! I have to say …. as soon as I saw this card on Pinterest … I knew I just HAD to make it. This gorgeous design was inspired by Mariana Grisby’s card … you can find it –> HERE! En Francais Sympathy G&J Jul'13 (3)I did change the colour combo … you know how much I love Pool Party/White/Black! The punched edge is a different one … and so is the flower and background stamp … but basically is it based on Mariana’s card.

Well … we are going out to dinner tonight with some friends (I know … I should be staying in bed!) … but we / they have cancelled twice already … so we really MUST make it tonight. Tomorrow morning we have a 9am wedding in Sydney … and then on Father’s Day we have an afternoon tea (here) with Gav’s parents & most of the kids. It is also Gav’s mum’s birthday on Sunday. Then … the girls are all cooking dinner for Gav on Sunday night! Family dinner! Love it! I also need to fit some baking in before Sunday … and make a dessert for tonight. (Which is nearly finished!) BIG WEEKEND! Hope your’s is a special one too!

    love that enfrancais panel, the stamp can be overwhelming in its entirety but this panel looks great and with the added flower is lovely. Hope you are feeling better – hugs Melxx
