Bits and pieces.

Hello, I was just beginning to think things were back to normal and was planning some time to craft when a horrible cough and cold arrived without warning and it certainly wasn't welcome, but dare I say - almost back to normal.

I keep having good intentions of using up the 'box of bits and pieces'  and this card helped a little.
The background, trellis and words were all in there,  and the photo was from from a reduced size scan of the original 'Found Relative' .

I really must make the effort to keep using up these bits before they take over!

I am entering this at Eclectic Ellapu - Shabby or Vintage

Thanks for calling in and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Glad to know you are feeling better - colds can be so nasty.
You have put all these bits and pieces together beautifully. I am not so good at that. Perhaps if I made more and talked less I could improve!!!
