My Most Favouritest Card Wot I Made ... Evvver!!!

Hello Everyone

My Goddaughter is 21 today - Happy Birthday Teri - where on earth did that 21 years go - scary huh??! This is the card I made for her:

The papers are Kay and Co, the image is Miss Anya (coloured with Promarkers), and the sentiment is from Pollycrafts. I've embossed a panel with a Cuttlebug folder, and added sparkle with diamond stickles, a pearly brad to hang the heart charm, and pearls. I've been wanting to have a go at pleating paper for a while, and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out - in fact, I'm so happy with this card! I followed the sketch on Friday Sketchers, but was too late to enter the challenge, so I think the only challenges I can enter are:

Secret Crafter - Sparkle and Shine
Simon Says - Sparkle

And now for an update re. some of the people in my life:

My mother-in-law has finally come out of hospital today after a four and a half week stay and both her lungs having to be drained.

My Mum is in hospital at the moment - had an operation on her lung yesterday - she is not feeling too good today as the morphine she is on is making her feel very sick - so we don't think she will be home for the weekend.

I've taken a few days off work to try to get some things sorted for Christmas. On the first day I was just about to walk into a shop about half an hour from home to do some Christmas browsing but I had a call from our school secretary to say that my son was ill - so it was get straight back in the car to go and collect him. I was planning on going Christmas shopping yesterday, but Andrew was still not too well so I had to keep him off school. But he is better again now and was back to school today, so I decided to go shopping today. I did some shopping at out of town Toys R Us, Boots, Sports Direct - managed to get a few pressies. Before catching the bus into town I thought I'd better phone my husband to check how he was getting on with mending our fence and to check what the weather was like (cos he was going to collect the children from school and would have had to walk, if it was raining I was thinking I would go home earlier - aren't I kind? LOL!). He told me he'd had an accident! - a fence post broke as he was trying to pull it out of the ground and it banged and cut the top of his head, lots of blood apparently OMG!!! So I had to rush home in a terrible panic - took me over an hour to get home, I was shaking and worrying about what I was going to find when I got home - would he be unconscious on the floor? But, thankfully, he was conscious - was still bleeding a bit so I took him to our local Minor Injuries Unit to get the cut checked. Thankfully, he's OK - apart from having his head glued (with nice bright blue glue LOL!), and he's got quite a headache!

Well, that's enough waffle from me for now. I have made a Christmas card for my daughter's teacher, and I hope to show you that tomorrow - hope you'll pop back to have a look.

See you soon.

Love, Andrea xx

And hope your mum feels better soon. Thank God your mum-in-law is out of hospital.

Now to your card... it is simply out of this world... such stunning colours. The image is to die for and the charm looks lovely. Your paper pleating is fantastic! Super-duper card!
