Crafty Catz Challenge: All Sentimental


I'm sorry I'm a little late with my post for the Crafty Catz today! Needless to say that I didn't get to sleep much again and then had to dash to the Doctor again this morning (just got back), because Chloe' woke up with some red splotches/spots all over her face and her body. You can image I was worried, but the Doctor sent me home with a print out saying it is just a viral rash and a reaction to whatever she has had. So, I thought she was having those temperatures because of her teeth and now it is a viral rash? I'm trying really hard to trust the Doctor and crossing even my toes that this will pass soon. Poor thing, she is so tired too, clearly in pain because of her big teeth cutting through and now this 'viral' rash as well. She still manages to  be cheeky and crack a smile or two though :) She's such a sweet thing. She had a little sing along and a dance whilst watching bubble guppies this morning :)

I stopped at a shop on the way home to buy a couple of bits and bobs and dashed home. I was about a third way home when I noticed Isabella holding a chocolate bar that I clearly didn't include in my 'paid for' items and after some swift tell off turned the double pram around heading back to the shop to return the STOLEN item! I know she's only 3 years old and clearly has not grasped the whole shopping process yet, but I fell rather embarrassed :/ The shop assistant laughed it off ... oh dear!

There's more fun over at the Crafty Catz Challenge blog today! There's a brand new challenge starting today chosen by our sweet Kim:

All Sentimental!
(so we'd like to see a sentiment/wording on your creation)

Our fabulous sponsor this week is

and the winner will receive 7 images of their own choice! 

I had a crazy week and thought to myself...what could I make something that wouldn't take too long?.. I'm going to have to fess up and apologise for not using any image from our lovely sponsor. Printing here is a task of its own in our household! There will be times when you won't, like me, have time to spend hours on a card and a couple of cute note 'Thank you' cards come in really handy... 

I will probably now have to give one to the shop assistant for being so understanding :) 

Both cards are 4" x 4" with the front panel being 3" x 3", made out of a simple Brusho backgrounds I had in stash already. This is  great way of using up your stash or left over papers. I heat embossed my sentiment using the Silver Pearl Wow! embossing powder and added a die cut to each card. Done! 

If you head over to the Crafty Catz blog you will find a selection of fabulous cards made by my talented team mates! 

Thank you for stopping by! I was tinkering with something else yesterday so do come back later on to check out my second post! 

Best wishes,

Ingrid xx
