Challenge cards...

3 Challenges today.....Im linking the first two together as i made a card for Mothers Day which ties in with the Quixotic theme for this week and i used the CardPatterns sketch :) I love how it turned out as its so not my usual style with lots and lots of embellies but i think mum will like it too :)

Second Card is for Kazans sketch 46 on the 2sketches4u blog - again this was so far out of my comfort zone with having very minimal on it..........infact ive come to the conclusion i dont even know what my style is as i fret about all of the ones i make!! LOL

3rd card is for the Paper Crafts Valentine February gallery - i love this Making Memories paper and cutting it out making the fluted edge at the side of the card i think finishes it off nicely :)

Im writing this while sitting in bed....yep its almost half 5 in the afternoon and it looks like for today at least im bedridden! I took a trip into town this morning with Jake and boy did i pay for it when i got home! Put it this way, i was bent double and had to physically lift my legs to get up the stairs and into bed - thankfully dh was here so i leaned on him heavily but ive never had pain like it before. I still cant straighten up and it literally feels as though my whole insides are resting at the bottom of my back! BUT dont worry because physio have said they can move my appt from Wednesday at 11.30 am to ..............................Wednesday 10.10am!! Oh joy!! Good job ive got a fab family here and a good sense of 'it all happens for a reason', i know it will all be worth it in the end :)
