Blue Sunday

Today, I've made a Birthday card for my friend's birthday at the end of the month.

I will also be entering it into several challenges

The sketch comes from Freshly Made Sketches

Stampin' Royalty have the theme of MAY FLOWERS

The colours are from Color Throwdown

and lastly,
the extra topping of    

Card = Whisper White, Concord Crush, with Blue and base FMS
Stamps = Stippled Blossoms, Papillon Potpourri, and Express Yourself
Inks = Concord Crush, Bermuda Bay, Lucky Limeade, and Crumb Cake
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Fiskars Scissors, Fancy Fan EF, and Butterfly Punches
Extras = 3D Pads, Ribbon, and Gems

We had two surprise visitors today.

My nephew, Nathan, came to show me his new glasses

and my niece, Sophie, came to show me her arm in plaster! She had fallen off one of her donkeys and broken her arm just above the elbow.....ouch!

We've got to take her back to the hospital tomorrow for another X-ray to make sure the bones are going to set in the right place. The poor little mite has really been through the wars lately, as she was in hospital with a blood poisoning virus a few weeks ago. 

They say things come in threes, so let's hope Nathan's glasses are the last thing.(fingers crossed)

Thanks for dropping by, and I'll be back soon
