Crafts & Me - Norah

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am feeling lots more hopeful today as i think it is either my washing powder or fabric conditioner that has caused my flare up.
I had my tea last night and a cuppa, no bath, so no products used at all apart from a splash of water.I put on a newly washed nightie and my eyes, shoulders and neck started to itch.
I swapped to a onsie that was washed a while ago and the itchiness stopped within a few mins, so fingers crossed.I will be going to buy new washing products now today.
So enough of the waffle and on to my card which you can also see at the Crafts & Me Inspiration blog.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
1.Deep Ocean Challenge - Challenge 83 - Summer colours

7.Scribble & Scrap Challenge - Challenge 24 - Anything goes
8.The Ribbon Girls Challenge - Aug card challenge - Anything but square

  30. Love the vibrant colours on this stunning card.
    Soap powder and fabric conditioner are notorious for sensitive skin, as my son knows to his cost. I can't use fabric conditioner at all for his clothes and ona a certain non-bio washing liquid!

  32. Beautiful flowers and image and colors. Lovely! I am so glad you figured out what the problem was. I have to be super careful with our washing soap or both me and hubby break out. Funny how it can just start after years of the same product. Hugz!
