Hi, Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I am looking forward to getting back to normal this week. My daughter had her operation on Thursday. She had a Liver biopsy, grommet insertion and adenoids taken out. She was the bravest girl ever. The only thing she complained about was her sore shoulder because she had to lie on her side for nearly 6 hours and because she was leaning on her shoulder it was hurting her. It was meant to be 4 hours but the nurses werent sure so kept her on her side until they checked! Yes.. took them 2 hours to check it out!! Dont get me wrong the staff were extremely good, went beyond the job description to make all the kids on that ward feel at ease and comfortable.
Here is my card that i rattled up tonight while watching Dancing On Ice! The sketch is from the Sugar Bowl Challenge. Great sketch to work with. My cutie is coloured in with Pro markers. I am usually a pastel colour girl but really liked these bold colours together. Over at the CES challenge the challenge is no Designer Papers, it was hard not to reach into the paper stack but i managed! I distressed the edges of all the white and teal paper with walnut ink.
The swirls and leaves are die cuts from my Cricut and the flowers as usual were home made and touched up with stickles. The gems and ribbon are out my stash.
I am entering the card into the following challenges;
