Shabby .......

Afternoon peeps well I can honestly say I have slept most of the day today, I have a thyroid problem and its a real pain as some days I am so tired  and all my joints ache, I can hardly stand up and today was one of those days,which is why I slept most of the day and I'll probably sleep all night, perhaps I'm turning into a dormouse.....lol.
Todays card is a shabby autumn card, the image is actually from a spring image from a Polkadoodle Cd called A Sundae of Seasons, I loved the picket fence which I coloured and then added crackle glaze to and distressed with Tea Dye ink. The flowers were coloured with Prismas, I added glossy accents to the buttons in the centre. The papers are from My Mines Eye......'my beautiful world', I love the gorgeous shabby colours, I did add a colour wash of Picket Fence over the top as well just to distress the papers a smidge more, and there's not any glitter on it.....now thats a first for me.Oh well back to work tomorrow for hopefully I'll stay awake mind you I'm seriously thinking of puttting a sofa in my office come tearoom so have a power nap on in my lunch break.....I'll need an alarm clock to wake me though.....lol.

Oh, I can sympathise, Daniele. Before I got my thyroid meds right I was the same as you - fell asleep at the drop of a hat!

Beautiful card. Those flowers are gorgeous and the little bit of gloss looks amazing.
Thanks for joining us at TPC this week.
