Almost there!

Good morning blogworld

Well that's nearly the end of my busy card sharing week - only got one more to go and then you don't see me again till next week.

Thanks for all the very kind comments on my cards, you surely know how to make a girl feel good about herself!!

Here is another one for you to look at.  I saw a brilliant sketch at Sketch Saturday - which I will use again - but I couldn't get it to look how I wanted on a square card (I make my own blanks which are touch under 6x6") so I ended up investigating other card sizes.  I have loads of envelopes and came across packets that are 5x7" and then found cards on the 'net  that are landscape fold for these envelopes.  I like cards that are folded across the top (what's that tent fold?) so I've ordered a few. Fun isn't it having the Internet ;-)

Anyways, here is the culprit for a tiny wee crafty spend up:

Again, it's quite a plain card so no close up.  I'm not entirely sure about the amount of white I've left around the image, I've got a feeling it might be too much and why the sketch didn't quite work, but hey ho I quite like it!!

I used:

My Favourite Things: a la mode - Big Birthday Wishes
coloured with Copics

Die-namics: Blueprints 1

BoBunny: Alora Collection

Anything else?
Chipboard flower - very old stash!!

Oh and before I go - thanks also for the kind thoughts for SWMbO - we did get an appt on Monday to see the Nurse.  No probs am happy to see a Nurse - earache is a bit trivial for Docs ain't it.  Anyways, Em's ear is still inflamed but no infection.  It's probably because I took her swimming right after her antibiotics and water has got in her ear, behind wax (urgh!) and stuck there.  So she is now having Olive oil drops in her ear every night for a week.  Hoping that fixes it.  

Nurse suggested ear plugs for when she goes swimming, to stop water getting in / repeat infections. I never had ear problems as a child (mine was, and is, migraine) and I've never had to think about ear plugs, headbands, swimming caps before - it's quite a large amount of stuff to trawl through isn't it!!

OK am off now and will see you in the morning.
