Sick, sick, sick...

Hi everyone,

Sorry AGAIN for the break in posting. This time it was a bout of VERY nasty gastro that attacked our household. Matt and I had it very badly but thank GOD for my parents! Mum actually left work and came to collect our son Toby and took him for 2 days and nights. She got him just in time and he didn't get sick. I'm soooo grateful to them for that as it was such a nasty bug I really didn't want him to catch it. I have no idea where I picked it up from but it really knocked us around. Being pregnant didn't exactly help either! We had the after hours doctor here at 5am after a scary night.

Did I mention how grateful I am to my parents??? Here's some proof that we really love them and appreciate their help at times like this:

This card is pretty much a direct CASE from Carol's blog (click HERE to see).
I normally would have come up with my own ideas for something like this but I was pretty exhausted from being sick so it was just easier to copy in this instance. Thanks Carol for posting such gorgeous ideas on your blog!

The only thing I changed was the ribbon and cardstock that the flower image is stamped on. I didn't have the white organdy that Carol used so I used the Ivory colour and then used Very Vanilla cardstock so it would match better with the ribbon. I also used a Very Vanilla envelope and stamped the same flower image on it.

Stamps: Carte Postale, French Flair background
Inks: Cool Caribbean, earth Elements Markers (Cameo Coral and Not Quite Navy)
Papers: Very Vanilla, Cameo Coral, Cool Caribbean
Accessories: Ivory Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: Square Punches


I also gave them a gift voucher so I made a little gift card wallet using the same template as these ones I did for Christmas.

I used the Enchante paper from the Summer Mini for this wallet and a Pale Plum button from the Soft Subtles buttons.

I'm very flattered Bec. Sorry to hear abou the gastro, we've had a touch of it here too but thankfully only one person came down with it. Glad you're doing much better now.
