BBTB2 - Thanks

Happy Monday Friends!
Hope you had a great weekend.

My son took a bit of a nosedive last week and we were at the hospital a couple of times again!
Apparently not appendix, so now they are running tests to look for more unusual things.
We are still waiting for results and taking one day at a time. It was his birthday last week as well poor lad!

The lovely Emily has asked us to make a Thanks card this week over at BBTB2. I think it was more inline for Thanksgiving but I deviated! lol

I used Artiste for all the cuts. I'm afraid my creative hat hasn't been on for a while but I like how it turned out.

Do check out all the fabulous inspiration from the DT ladies and come and play along.

It's also my birthday today and I am going out for the day...hopefully!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Hi Everybody, hope you had a good weekend.
Thank you for all your well wishes for my son.
They ruled out kidney and definitely appendix and lymph nodes are very sore, but are doing other tests.
He's still unwell and I am awaiting a call back from the GP as I write this!
He collapsed over 8 weeks ago and for a usually fit and healthy sports mad 13 year old to be like this is not right. Obviously blogging is taking a back seat at the moment but I will call by soon. Thank you for understanding.

The lovely and talented Caroline over at BBTB2 has challenged us to use a pumpkin cut.

I used Artiste for this 3d pumpkin and cut it a few extra times, added ink and black enamel and glossy accents. I seem to love thread and pegs at the moment and if I ever get around to taking photos of tags I have been making you will see that!

I hope you will call by and see all the wonderful inspiration from the DT and link up and play along.

Thanks for stopping by.

BBTB2 - Football

Happy Monday!

This week the ever so lovely Brenda has set us a football challenge over at BBTB2.
I realise football here and over in the States are two entirely different games.
I went with real football (lol) !

Cricut - Create a Friend 4", Art Philosophy 4.75" for card base

I popped up the little footballer with 3d foam.

Thank you for stopping  by.
Do check out all the wonderful inspiration from the DT ladies and hope you can join us this week.
