Well what a week I just had. I got a phone call last Tuesday from Middle School asking me to come over to look at my son's foot. He'd apparently had an accident playing cricket and they thought he probably needed to see a doc. So I shot off and sure enough he DID need to see a doc! As soon as I saw his foot I could tell he'd broken something, but when I got him to the Minor Injuries dept, I was really shocked to see a huge lump under the ball of his foot. X-Ray revealed the most horrendous thing I've ever witnessed - his big toe had dislocated and was sitting UNDERNEATH his foot! ARGH! I nearly passed out! He has also got two broken bones and a fracture in the big toe. I've never been a cricket fan, and I can't see him wanting to take it up either! Mind you, he was worried it might impact on his drumming, but thankfully he's managed to keep that up.
Anyway, here is my latest card offering. I made this one for one of the team who's birthday it is tomorrow, and I used the Magnolias Down Under challenge for my inspiration. Their theme this week is Pink, White and Gold - gorgeous colour combo and I loved making this - I hope you like it too!

A very happy autumnal Sunday blogland! I think it's time to pack my sandals away once and for all and dig out some of my winter woollies! Brrr.... it's definitely turning a bit nippy out there!
My card today is for three challenge themes. To begin with I was inspired by Bev's sketch on Just Magnolias
TOMIC's Make your own background challenge. The only printed paper I used on this was the leaves on my flowers. I also combined it with Anything Goes's Vintage/Shabby Chic theme this week
Moan alert here.... Does anyone else have the problems that I'm having with blogger at the moment? I see hundreds of gorgeous inspirational cards and projects out there that I would love to leave a comment on, but unfortunately, if the comment box is directly beneath the posting, blogger won't allow me to comment and I have tried pretty much everything to rectify this. I have found that the only blogs I am able to comment on are those who have a seperate pop up comments form which is such a shame!
Well that is my lot for today. I have a few domestic chores to attend to then I am going to have another scout around for more inspiration! Thank you for visiting me, I hope you like what you see :o) Have a great day. xx

Oh blimey, this last week has just whizzed by and tomorrow I'm back at school! I'm not unhappy about it though as I have a really exciting year ahead of me which I'm really looking forward to.
My card today fits 3 challenges so I'm submitting it to this week's Sketch Saturday challenge - here is the sketch:
I'm also submitting it to this week's Magnolia Down Under challenge where the theme is Frame It and this week's Simply Magnolia challenge whereby Anything Goes!
Now then, to mark the end of the summer I have decided to give this card away in a random draw, so if you would like to own this card (it's a pretty big one, I tell you!!) then please leave your name in the comments and I will get my kids to draw someone's name (if there are any!! LOL!) this time next week and I'll send it to whoever they draw - blank if you prefer! ;o)
Thanks for stopping by :o) x

Happy Sunday all - OMGoodness, isn't it freeeeeeeeeeezing!!!! Now I do love a bit of snow, but sadly, that's all we got - a bit!! But the cold is something else altogether....Brrrr...... It doesn't seem fair to have all this cold with so little snow to show for it! LOL!!
Over at Keep it Simple this week our theme is Joy. Now the idea is to keep it SIMPLE, and that's what I did with my original project. I made a hangy thing using K&Co Die Cut shapes - dead simple and done and dusted in about 10 minutes tops. However, when I left it to dry what I didn't realise is that there was a bit of glue one the Deer and when I lifted it, a big chunk of paper came away with it leaving a nasty looking gash on the bottom die cut. Boooo!!! For the sake of the challenge I played around with my photo editing suite and managed to sort of disguise it, but I wasn't completely happy with it so I quickly customised this card I'd made by adding the tag with 'Joy' on it! Yay!!
The papers I used are from the Bearly Mine Christmas Fun collection and they are so gorgeous to use! There are so many beautiful papers in these kits that there needs to be more than one Christmas a year!!
Well that's my lot for the time being - my fingers are like little blocks of ice and I'm making far too many typo's because I can't feel them - plus I can hear hubby's car engine running which is my signal that he's ready to drive me off to Tesco so we can all eat this week!!!
Have a fab (and hopefully, warm!) Sunday and thanks for popping by! :o) xx
