2 challenges yesterday

Well back to work for me today. My Mandy is still bad, and I can't get her levels up higher than 240, but my Nicki isn't in collage until 2, so she's going to look after Mandy while I'm at work. Then it will be a quick rush home to swap over. Steriods don't seem to be doing anything. But fingers crossed she'll be on the mend soon. Hope you are all ok and enjoying your crafting. I'm off to blog hop so you might get a comment and hello from me. Happy crafting today hugs Vicki x This challenge was the Paper Take Challenge http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/ This was a sketch challenge. My favourite kind of challenge and I love this layout. One I can see me using again and again. It makes it easy for putting on a name for work. So this week I have Ryan's birthday. Who is going to be 13, and has the most flirty eyes. In fact he has to have his wheelchair faced away from the kitchen as he spends his time flirty with us in the kitchen, instead of looking at his helper feeding him. When he comes into the dinning room. I always greet him with Hello Handsome, and he loves it lol. See we flirt too. For this card I used Paper which Vanessa (nessy's notes) gave me ages ago. Then card from The Paper Mill. Also the gold paper has silver glitter in it, but that doesn't show on the picture. Circle and letters cut with Vanessa's Squeeze, (still no word on my Revolution). Image painted with watercolour paints, and then Birthday boy stamped on circle.



And this challenge was the Tilda & Co Girly but blue challenge http://magnoliachallengeblog.blogspot.com/ I don't think I could of got more blue lol. But it was good and I liked it. For this I used Papermania Dots, then the card was from The Paper mill, I painted the tilda with watercolours and finished off with blue glitter on the stars. Then added white ribbon and bow.
