Back in the land of the living

Sorry I had to cancel last weeks class ladies, but you woúldn't have wanted to catch the bug I have had, it really layed me low for a week, finally went to the Dr's yesterday and she gave me antibiotics (something she doesn't do without you being really sick) she took the oxygen levels of my blood and they were down to 92% and that is after a week of solid coughing, I have slept in the recliner chair for four nights, daredn't lay down, but enough!! I am starting to feel a little better now, still coughing well but not as violently. 

This card was put together quite quickly, Tulips!! they can be made in nearly any colour and are a fairly simple flower to make (yes I know I always say that, but ít's usually true eh?)

The symbolic meaning of tulips is fame and perfect love. The symbolic meanings also change with the color of the tulips. Red tulips mean "believe me" and are a declaration of love. Variegated tulips mean "you have beautiful eyes." Yellow tulips mean "there's sunshine in your smile." And cream colored tulips mean "I will love you forever." Tulips are the foremost national symbol of Holland, rivaling wooden shoes and windmills

I am entering into the following challenge

http://flutterbywednesdays.blogspot.com/ which is a recipe, the colour blue, lace, a butterfly and at least three flowers
and also http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/11/simon-says-anything-goes.html#links
Anything goes.

See you on Monday
Love Jenni

Oh Jenni, I'm so glad you're feeling a bit better. I had the same thing and it was awful - second time this year too :(

Love, love, love these tulips! So pretty and fresh.

Lovely Jenni.
Sorry to hear that you have been so unwell.
Keep yourself well now - OK?

Who'd have though a tulip could have so many meanings! Fingers crossed the antibiotics get to work quickly. Have a great week.
