What A Spring !


Well we had - or should i say Alan had an eventful Friday - he spent 5 hours in A&E with Harrison (i don't do hospitals - they totally freak me out and Alan is more calming in stressful situations) - Harrison had a suspected 'Appendicitis', but after loads of tests he was sent home and in the end they think it could have been a grumbling Appendix or because he had an infection 2 weeks ago, the gunk could have ended up there - he is absolutely fine now.

This card is for Alan's mum, as she is looking after H for a couple of days over Easter, the image is : Penny Black - 'What A Spring ! / 2557K / 2003', the papers are : Doodlebug - 'Easter Argyll and Easter Doodles', the sentiment is : 'Inkadinkadoo - 'Happy Everything', the die is : Memory Box - 'Spring Border'. I really must treat myself to a Centre Step Card, as it took me 3 attempts to make the base card - it's where i have to cut the sections, i don't seem to have enough strength in my wrist to do it once.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Spring Pinterest Inspiration'

Moving Along With The Times - where the Challenge is 'Tag You're It'

Alphabet Challenge  - where 'C is for Cute And Cuddly'

Sorry to hear the Harrison has been unwell, I hope he is feeling better soon.
Your card is gorgeous, such a sweet image and pretty papers. I love the centre step design, I have just finished making one myself for a challenge due at the weekend ( I used the same die along the bottom edge too!)

This i s so sweet! Great fold and sweet image too!

Sue said...

Cute image and card, Sam. Love anything with a bunny.

Glad you son is ok and surgery wasn't necessary. My hubs had that same thing with his appendix 25 years ago, and just two years ago had an attack and they removed it. So can go a long time before it acts up again.


Janice said...

Poor H, so pleased he's ok and it wasn't appendicitis, Colin had his removed when he was little and it was a real worry at the time. Love your Easter thank you card, and so pleased you joined us this week at MAWTT in my tag challenge. Love the shaped card and your overall design, very pretty, Jx
