Chubby Chum

Good morning all.

There is nothing quiet like a flu to announce that autumn/winter is finally here. Yes, I have now got my first flu of the season - it's not quite in full forve yet but I definately feel rough. Not a lot you can do about that apart from drink a lot of fluid, stay warm and take a few painkillers. I am pretty sure I got it of James who has been poorly most of the week.

Made a call home to Denmark yesterday. I wanted to catch up with my dad's wife as she has been in terrible pain for a very long time and doctors couldn't really work out what was wrong with her. Turns out she has a rare condition called Lupus where the immune systems attacks healthy tissue and cells. Not nice but at least now she can get medication and hopefully get better.

Well, enough doom and gloom. I wanted to share a card I made for ..........



........ using this fabulous photo as inspiration .........



........ and this is what I made ..........


........... you may ask how this fits in with the inspiration photo - well, I love the shape of those tomatoes and I thought of a lot of little owls huddled up together to keep warm in winter. I did try a lot more owls but it got too confusing lol. The colours are wonderful and I used a little wooly embroidery thread for texture.
This is one of my favorite stamp sets - I adore the little animals (my daughter wants zoo ones lol).
