Our Creative Corner

This is my other card for today using the "Our Creative Corner" sketch for this week:
I turned the sketch round as I already had the image I wanted to use: Penny Black "For You". The patterned, glittered and flocked paper is all by Doodlebug. Colorbok queue inks and gems finish off the card. The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Thanks for looking :) now I must get ready for school.

Sketch Saturday # 50

I've enjoyed making this duck card this morning based on the Sketch Saturday blog sketch:
The card is Stampin Up and the patterned glittered card is by DCWV. I used a corner punch on the Penny Black "Duckling" image and the Stampin Up edge punch. Velvet ribbon, prima flowers and Doodlebug sugar brads finish the card. Hope you like it as much as I do :)

Mojo Monday #86

I've been struggling with making cards just lately and it was just too nice weather to stay in over the weekend. Thankfully the Mojo Monday blog sketch this week gave me the inspiration I needed to finally make a Silver Wedding Anniversary card:
The card is all stardream so it glistens. The gems and ribbon is by Papermania. Not sure where the pearl hearts or the pretty worded paper came from. The peach heart I cut from the Cuttlebug Textile Hearts cut and emboss set.

Thanks for looking, hope it'll be well received, I must send it abroad tomorrow! Thanks too for your get well wishes for Mum, she's now out of hospital but is taking strong steroids to get rid of the fluid on her lung and to calm down her COPD, but is much better than she was.

Mum's in hospital

Just to let my friends and family know that Mum is in hospital. The GP wanted her to go in yesterday as Mum's oxygen levels weren't right and the last couple of weeks Mum's had antibiotics for an infection of some sort which hasn't cleared. Anyway it looks like Mum has fluid on one of her lungs, a probable infection of her chest (which should show up better after the fluid is taken off her lung) and a flair up of her COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). COPD is said to be a "smoker's disease" but Mum has never smoked in her life! Mum's a bit muddled and pretty confused so hoping a few days in hospital will see her better.

Mojo Monday # 85

I haven't had any inspiration these last few days, even though it was a Bank Holiday Monday here yesterday. Having a look at the Mojo Monday sketch for this week I decided to have a go, here's my card:
I used some new paper "Papermania Signature - Regency", along with some card from the DCWV spring card stack and a DCWV rub on quote. The image is a Penny Black one. Hope you like it, considering my mojo has left me I'm quite pleased with it.

Better get going now, I have school/work shortly.

Take care :)
