Black and White

Today the daily challenge at Gecko Galz is black and white.

I'm going to send this to our daughter, who is finding it difficult to cope with not going out to work (her own business), having an adult child who left home and then came back for this lockdown, a partner with no work at present and no hobbies,  and they share their little house with another couple as well.  She wants some quiet time to be alone, but there's nowhere to go  …  I'm sure that's a familiar theme.  I thought it might make her laugh … and have a wine of course!

Image: Gecko Galz
Patt.paper: Pixel Scrapper
Sentiment: Pixel Scrapper
Stamp: Kaisercraft
Gems, tulle bow (see close up)

In real life the bow shows up well, but I can't get it to photograph ... this is as good as it gets.

I love this black and white. Hopefully she'll get a laugh out of it. Everyone needs a little quiet time. It's terrible when you just want to have a couple of hours by yourself and can't. [Bunny]

This is beautiful. I can't imagine how stressful for her being in lockdown with that many other people. Hope this brightens her day.
