Midweek Update

And still the flu lingers...
I actually felt a lot better on Monday - so, of course I overdid things (extra long walk with Max etc). Felt rough yesterday and today (it being "nauseous Weds"...).
However, enough doom and gloom!

I've kept myself occupied while lying in bed/on the sofa by reading and more reading. I've now started Book 7 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Wish I didn't read so fast..may well be a Twilight job i.e start reading them all again when I finish book 8.
I've now started casting the film in my mind, should it ever be made. So far I've only come up with Jacob (Taylor Lautner) from Twilight as one of the vampire warriors. But I'll keep trying!

I've also managed a little light crafting.
Last night I did another double page for my Collage Course:

The background was provided as part of the Collage Coterie course that I started last year (didn't finish as it was when Dad was ill), the girl was a free download from Dezinaworld and the flowers were fussy cut from German scraps. The title came from a 1940's book that I picked up on ebay.

This afternoon I turned my Valentine tag into a card for David:


Cream and black cardstock from stash, paper - Little Yellow Bicycle "Love Letters", ribbon from Angel Crafts.
I can show it as he doesn't read my Blog - he's not even on Facebook!

Hope you're all having a good week and thanks for stopping by.
Hugs xx

Sorry you haven't been feeling well, Sue. Hopefully you're over the worst.

I love your Collage Coterie DPS - I don't recognise that lovely flowery background, I'll have to go and have a look for it. It's so pretty. Such a sweet image to go with it, and the perfect sentiment. The 2 flowers in the bottom right hand corner are a lovely touch.
