Anyone for a game?

Hi everyone, and apologies for being MIA! I'd just like someone to explain to me how a bad headache can last for three days and then culminate in a horror of a migraine! Have just felt generally grot and with a bad head really could not face a computer screen! But thankfully it seems to have all subsided a bit so keeping my fingers crossed. I've a nasty suspicion it's all to do with being at 'an interesting age' lol!  One that usually involves mood swings that have the family retreating to a safe distance, playing hokey cokey with the duvet every night and a memory that feels like someone keeps pressing the delete button! Sigh.

Anyway, less of my moaning waffle! I'll make a concerted effort to catch up with all your lovely blogs and see what everyone has been up to!

Just wanted to share another 'inspiration' card for you using one of the February releases from Whimsy digital stamps.  This time I've used a fabulous Marika Collins digi called 'basketballer'

I've coloured the image with promarkers and a little bit of pencil for detail. 

The papers are from First Edition, the sentiment is also from Whimsy and the ribbon and gems from stash. I've used a Tonic punch for the edge. 
Do pop over to have a look at the gorgeous range of digi stamps released this month by Whimsy - there's something for everyone! 
Back soon, 
Kim  x
