Four Cards Five Challenges

Hi peeps well i have been so busy with my son Aaron's birthday at the weekend his new baby son my grandson Alfie and looking after MIL that i've not had a chance to put these cards on here yet, her GP came out today as he was on his hols when she was discharged from hospital, he spent an hour here with us and said her walking may not get any better as her left foot is still numb he thinks it was cause by lack of oxygen when she had her cardiac arrest, so we will have to wait and see. And to top it all i have to back to DRs as one of my wounds from my op 6 weeks ago has gone all yucky as the resolvable stitches inside haven't dissolved they already took one out and now the rest are trying to come out, this is the third time i've had to go back, it could only happen to me lol.

I have a four cards for you today the first one is my DT card for Sophisti-cats the theme is to make a card for a child which was the choice of our lovely Mandy and we were supplied with the images too from Jenni from Cardmadfairy's Creations, who is our sponsor this week, check out her blog . I used the sketch over at Friday Sketchers
Daring Card Makers is Die cut crazy

The other cards were for my son Aarons birthday which was on Saturday i cant believe he is 32 now and just where have the years gone lol,it beats me.

I made a Criss cross card for Aaron from his Nan and i added a pocket to the inside the tutorial is HERE i am also entering this card into Cupcake crafts Don't be Square

and the cheeky busty image is one of Victoria Case's fab images called Heidi and i used the sketch on Cute card Thursday

And finally Basic Grey Challeng Blue Gold and White

Well i think that's it from me for now and at least i've got some of my problems off my chest sorry to burden you with it though. Take care
