Friday Sketchers # 70

Morning all, not sure if I'll be in work again today....I will have to wait and see how James is when he wakes up....he had a rotten day again yesterday and last night...we still can't seem to get his temperature down...I rang the doctors yesterday and NHS direct and neither of them wanted to know.....its not neccesarily the flu that's bothering me but the fact that his temperature has been a consistent 104 for over 48 hours...on the plus side he's eating plenty of vanilla ice-cream so he can't be that ill lol!

Todays card is for Friday Sketchers...I'm a bit concerned that I keep using red and turquoise together...its only a recent thing and hopefully one I'll grow out of soon lol! The design papers on this card are Pink Petticoat and the red card used for matting is SU! The scalloped strips were punched with a SU! border punch and the ribbon is from my stash! The delightful little Magnolia image was stamped for me by Victoria....thanks Victoria, I've loved using the images you sent me...I've coloured with PM's as always and added some glamour dust to the fluffy bits! The snowflakes were created with a MS punch and the the iced gems and rub-on are from my stash!

Hope you all have a good day :) TFL

love it to bits, I made a card last night in these colours, I think they're fab.

This is just so cheerful and bright

Hope James gets better very quick and his temp comes down - keep harranging the Dr, that's not right that they're not bothered.

Hi Donna, sorry to hear James is so unwell and I can't believe you've had no help from the Doc or NHS D with a temperature like that, it's disgusting! I hope his temp is down today and he's feeling a bit better. Your card is superb, I love that colour combo and I don't think you should grow out of it ever. Gorgeous image and design and your colouring is perfect. Hugs, Chris x
