Err, nope, it's not a waterfall!!!

Oh dear me! I got into such a pickle last night. I texted Squirrel to ask if this card would be allowed into the 'Spring' challenge at Without Words. Well, I think I may have overdone the shandy because I got all my words mixed up as I described it as a punk waterfall card!!!! Later texts saw me trying to explain it was actually a fountain card with pink flowers - only for Squirrel to ask what the heck a fountain card was! After ten minutes I was sobbing with hysterical laughter and totally unable to text and explain further. Sometimes I wonder how I got this far in life!!

Anyhoo, this is my card AND I coloured it with distress inks :-O  I wasn't going to share it as my watercolouring is a little suspect but these papers are lush and worth a look!
I'm pretty sure that the stamp is from Kaisercraft - it is such a pretty stamp. The papers are from the DCWV Mariposa stack which is utterly delicious. I've had it ages but haven't wanted to cut it up because it's sooooooooo lovely. Duh!
After I've finished this post I'm off to take a does of Qi-Ribose (from Viridian). It is supposed to help those with Fibromyalgia and M.E. - something to do with magnesium reducing fatigue. At this point I'm willing try pretty much anything! I'm hoping that if I'm not quite so tired I'll cope better with the pain. I'll let you know if I'm jogging round the block next week. ;-)

Right, I'm off. Thank you for stopping by. Hugs, Jayne xx
