What a day!

Well actually, what a week!! I mentioned Grace has had a nasty ear infection, well she'd finished her course of antibiotics and guess what... within 24 hours she was very sick again, with sickness, a high temperature and pain. We took her back to see a doctor at the hospital and she has a different course of antibiotics, I'm really hoping it knocks the infection on the head. I feel so useless and it's so upsetting to see her so poorly all the time. I just don't know what to do. I'm hoping something happens/someone suggests something at her next appointment, at the moment I can't see any light at the end of the tunnel and just feel so helpless :(

Anyway, that's my reason for the lack of a post yesterday. I managed to get this card made today although I coloured and planned it last night.

As a warm up for my first DT challenge with LCI, I saw a challenge on a  blog and thought I'd give it a go! I'm a bit annoyed at the photos though but I think I'll retake them tomorrow and repost the pics. I was really pleased with how the card turned out and I LOVE these papers!! They're for sale on my online shop however the manufacturer images really don't do the papers justice which is a real shame as they are gorgeous and the reverses (and most of the fronts) are perfect for cards with very pretty and subtle patterns! They're the Crate Paper - Paper Doll collection. I have the full collection available to buy online - CLICK HERE

It took a long time to make this card! They do seem to take longer and longer lol!!

I used glossy accent on the umbrella and of course mandatory glitter :) You can see the lovely detail to the papers on the pics!
