A Stitch In Time

Hi everyone. I haven't been sleeping ever since my last post - things have just been a bit hectic around here. I never got my early night to bed as my Dad was taken in to hospital. They discharged him Wednesday afternoon and he was readmitted yesterday. They are doing some tests today and then we may have some idea of when he may be coming home again.

Anyway here's a card I managed to get made for a few challenges. I used an image from Joanna Sheen's 'Gruffies & Happy Hoppers' cd which I printed off a couple of extra times so that I could decoupage it. The papers are LOTV and I faux stitched with a white Sakura pen. I added a die-cut sentiment and a snippet of ribbon and pearls from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Sketch Saturday challenge 'sketch'
House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'summer fun + option anything goes'
Gruffies & Guests challenge 'die-cuts + option anything goes'
In the Pink challenge 'stitching - real or faux'
The Cutie Pie challenge 'layer it up'
Crafty Ribbons challenge 'animals'
Petal Lu challenge 'anything goes'

Thanks for taking the time to visit and I'll pop round to you all as soon as I get chance.
