Expecting....




I have had a heck of a weekend, will explain at the end of this post:(
I had a card request for congratulations to expecting parents. I got myself this lovely image from Digital Pencil Too.
Image - Digital Pencil
Papers - Nitwits
Embellishments - ribbon, pearls
Medium - she is coloured with promarkers
I would like to enter this into
DP2 - pastel colours
I Love ProMarkers - square card and something round
Creative Inspirations - ribbon and pearls
Totally Gorjuss - ribbon and pearls
2 sisters - sketch (I flipped it)
Sweet Stamps -  no birthday cards
Glitter n sparkle - white plus one colour (orange)

For those who read my blog you know I was suffering from a sinus infection which I thought was clearing up on Friday. But by Friday evening I was feeling miserable and went to bed early. I woke up on Saturday morning and the left side of my face was all swollen, from my mouth up to my eye!! I took myself off to the emergency doctors. They checked me out and couldn't really explain the swelling other than maybe from the infection! I have a new antibiotic, pain killers and a decongestant to take but my face is still very swollen today. Honestly I am beginning to look like Shrek! Fingers crossed it will clear otherwise I will have to go to hospital and have it investigated. 2013 is definitely not as nice a year as I would like.

Oh what a pain (no pun intended) Pinky. Hope the new set of antibiotics work. I thought they would have sent you to the hospital straight away rather than wait to see if this lot work.
Good job it doesn't stop you crafting or we wouldn't be seeing this lovely card. Super image and design and I'm loving the peachy colours.
