Winter Wishes

Evening everyone! Hows your weekend going? Mine's been good so far, apart from yesterday when me and my friend Michelle took to the kids out for the day and things all got a bit dramatic! In the afternoon Leo suddenly out of nowhere started walking oddly on his right leg like then he wouldn't walk at all-not like him-he'd much rather run around than be carried! After a little bit when it still hadn't improved I took to him to A and E, they examined him and everything and his temp was up as well. So...the consultant decided we needed to go to a bigger hospital as he thought there might be fluid on his hip and a temperature is a symptom of it so off we went-was really worried by this point! When we got to the next hospital and after more examinations and more doctors it was decided it wasn't a hip problem, and actually he was ok-just a bit of a bug and by this point he was walking ok after being given medicine and off we went home! He's pretty much fine now, thank goodness and no walking problems so who knows what the leg thing was about! Its such a guessing game when they can't communicate enough to tell you what the matter is!

Anyways...I have a card to show ya! I got this cutie stamp about a month ago but was waiting for some lovely christmas papers and now I've got some newies decided it was time to ink her up! Also time to start cracking on with the chrismas/yule cards! There seems to be a few challenges this week who are encouraging us to do just that so this card works for Simon Says Challengewho want to see christmas creations, winter wonderland who want to see home featured in christmassy creations (there's sweet little houses on the paper I've used), Dutch Dare also want to see Christmas Creations as do Creative Card Crew. The layout of this card is courtesy of the fabulous Kellie's sketch challenge-you should defo pop over there as you could win 3 adorable motivet stamps!

Stuff: Motivet stamp 'doraline bundled up', mme papers 'merry days of christmas', pearls and bead cap from the Elaine at Quixotic Paperie, ribbon from stash, sewing machine, mcgill and x cut punch, core'dinations card

Ooo almost forgot to ask you guys-I need to make an engagement card for my step brother and his now fiancee-any image ideas? Thanks so much for stopping by and any comments you might leave me-they make my day! Enjoy the rest of your evening! Huggles xxx

  6. I am glad your boy is okay, phew, what a relief. It sure makes for a bit of a panic, doesn't it? Why, right now my tot has broken out in a fever and is so stuffed up, he can hardly breathe, and if it doesn't seem like the end of his little world, I don't know what it is!!

    Now, I expect great things when I visit, and this does not disappoint, pure beauty, love that image, your fab colouring, what fun new papers!! And that ribbon is BEAUTIFUL. Funny, same sketch, same stamp, two totally different projects. Thank you for playing with us this time around, hope to see you next month at Kellie's Sketch Challenge!!
    Take Care,
    Stephanne

  11. OH that would had been so scary for you. Having children myself it's just so hard they pick up so many bugs so easily and they all come with different symptoms and you just never really know if you should worry or if it will pass. So glad to hear he is doing well :)

    WOW as always your card has just blown me away and your colouring is amazing, such an inspiration. Thank you so much for playing along with us and I hope to see you back again next month doing it all again xx.

  15. Hi,
    It's so worrying when kids are at that age when they can't explain what is wrong with them. Glad everything is OK. What a fright you must have had.
    This card is so rich in colour and what a cute little furry that stamp is. I love it.

  22. so glad to hear your son is fine, maybe he had stepped on a pebble shortly before the odd walk.
    for your engagement card, try something non-traditional combined with traditional. I recently made a wedding card for a women who loves ladybugs so I embossed the bugs and put them on hearts, find something your couple love and incorporate it into the regular hearts and flowers and rings stuff.
