Hello again, its saturday and time for a new challenge over at the CES Challenge Blog. This weeks theme is called "Mix & Match". We would like to see different papers from different manufactures. I just adore these new stamps from "Emerald Faeries". I have used my Spectrum Noirs to colour. I do read both good and bad comments about these. I do love the colours but yes they are juicy and will take a bit of getting used to, but on the whole, glad I got them. Will have to have a go at mixing with Copics and Promarkers to see how they blend. And yes I have bandage on my card. A bit of Crepe Bandage purchased from Boots. Gave it a bit of a stretch and frayed the edges. Quite appropriate seeings as my Zoe has her arm in plaster. hehe!!
Sentiment is Whimsey, MS Punches, Distressing, Viva Pearls and a piece of ribbon.

We went back to the hospital yesterday for Zoes broken arm. Consultant at a glance said she would be OK in a padded sling, but noticed some bleeding on the x ray which can indicate another fracture. So theres us all geared up to going away with Zoe in a nice soft sling and worries all over. Came back, takes another look at x ray and says bad news, theres a fracture across her humerus, along with the chip in her elbow so another cast would have to go back on. Luckily they have put on a totally waterproof one and its only for 3 weeks but still got to get threw check- in at Gatwick sunday, as we dont have a proper doctors letter (thats in post) so had to make do with a sick note stating she's safe to fly.
Anyway, thats enough waffle. Just got to speak to airline this morning for confirmation his letter is OK, then off to sunny Zakynthos for 2 weeks (hopefully) So wont be back in blogland now till September.
I hope you al lenjoy the rest of summer and anyone with kids are having the best of times.
Hugs for anyone in need and sending smiles to all.
See you in a few weeks!
Thanks for looking
