Red & Blue

Hi,

Well since i've been back from my hols my feet don't seem to have touched the ground with 1 thing and another,  hence hardly any postings !!!! :

1) Had to rush 3 year old son to A & E had a temperature of 39.5 and said his eyes hurt - fortunately it turned out to be tonsilitis, thank goodness
2) We were in Yorkshire last weekend visiting OH's family - first time we have been up since April !!!
3) I've finally agreed for doctor to put me on Beta Blockers to try and control my migraines - although personally i think it's something else, but they won't let me go for a CT scan, until elimination has been done
4) Had cronic toothache this week, and have now got to have a root canal done at a cost of £198, eek !!!

I don't know how many postings i'll be able to do in the next 2 weeks, as i start Jury service tomorrow, - not happy as i have to put son in nursery for 2 weeks, instead of doing things with him in the summer hols !!!

Right onto the card - my lovely friend Julie (who is as mad about PB's as i am !!) sent me this fabby image and i won the lace in the lovely Helen's blog candy and the challenges i'm entering are :

Sketch and Stamp - where they are up to Challenge No: 41 and i have turned their sketch 90 degrees

ABC Christmas - where the Challenge is P for Presents with the added option of lace

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 64 is Primary Colours - Red, Blue and Yellow - you have to choose 2, so i went for Red and Blue

Moving Along With The Times - where Challenge No: 58 is a Christmas Theme

Wild Orchid Challenge - where Challenge No: 2 is 'Lovely Lace'

Docrafts - Snoflake Challenge Week No: 32






I've add another photo, as the blue background on the swirly paper didn't show up very well

Image - Penny Black - 'Coming Your Way'
Papers - DCWV - 'The Christmas Stack'
Lace - won in Helen's Blog Candy
Gems - from stash

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x

Gosh, it all happens at once at your house!!!!!!! pleased your Son is okay though, worrying when they are small and can't really say how they feel.
