Crafts & Me Challenges DT Card & Poorly hubster ;0)

Hello again my lovelies, back again this time with my Crafts & Me DT Card. I will put the update about my hubster at the end of the post, maybe even a piccy lol.
Anyway the lovely talented Sara has moved over to the rubbah team..........wooo hooooooo thats girl is so talented I tell ya..........pop on over if you dont believe me ;0)
Anyway Sara has set an easy peasy theme this week of............
FAVOURITE EMBELLISHMENT
OMG.......you have seen how much of my foofiness I like how do I narrow something down to my fave!!
Well, its easy............add them all........well nearly ;0)

I have used 'Genevieve' by Hannah Lynn & went also with my fave colours, blue & brown.
Copic colours............
E13, E21, EOO, E000, E0000, R20
E29, E27, E23, E21
B97, B95, B93, B91
BOO & B000 & Bleder for background

I've used my Spellbinders 'Frame' & finally used the inside die as well, its only took 2 years lol. The blue oblong is the smaller die & the insert I made into a tag & stamped a 'Sentiment' on in 'Brown Memento'.

I've added 'Fresh Foliage' die but cut it in half to spread apart further............this is def gonna be one of my fave dies, I love it!!!!!! Also added Prima flower. The pearls were from my secret santa ;0)

I've added a gorgeous 'Circle Ornament' & attached a charm hanging from it & a beautiful 'Pearl Centre' I soooooooooooo love these, they really are soooo pretty!!! Cant remember where the angel charm is from.

The gorgeous papers are MME 'Paris & Co' & I've inked all the edges.

I also decorated inside as always & added Marianne 'Corners'. All the die cuts I cut from Dark Brown A4 card from my stash. I coloured the stamped image with copics & added pearl dots to her gloves with my Pearl Pen.
So my favourite embellishment is ALL OF THE ABOVE lol......I lurve all embellishments, my faves are pearls, flowers (of any kind), die-cuts........actually this could go on & on lol.

Now for the update on my hubster, well its been a long day & he ended up needing surgery, he had his operation this afternoon. He had shattered 2 bones, so they have inserted pins & wraped wire around the bones & pins to try keep it all in place, because the bones are thin in the hand they could slip & move & his hand wont heal. He cant use his hand at all & he's got to be extremely careful he doesn't knock it............he is feeling rather poop bless him.
Here he is resting & trying to look miserable lol.... I've brought the pillow off our bed for him to rest his arm on.
Tbh I'm rather lost without him as it takes 2 people to care for Natalie as she weighs nearly 9 stone, thats a lot of dead weight to dress & change a nappy & get into the wheelchair & Craig always does it with me & does the lifting so this next few weeks are gonna be hectic & tiring lol, however his health comes first & foremost. He is a fantastic hubster & is always willing to help with anything, he truly is my other half & I love him sooooooooo much.

I had everyone over for tea tonight as they were worried about him & wanted to see him, so I made home-made soup for everyone..........it cheered him up a bit ;0)

Well I'm gonna go & catch up with reading my comments & emails & try reply to all of them, if not tonight then I will tomorrow. I've still got a canny bit of DT work catch up with but I really will try my VERY best to catch up with you all asap.
Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by & welcome to my new followers thank you so so much for joining me, I am truly honoured. If you leave a comment I will come over & pay you a visit to thank you personally & also to follow you ;0)

Tatty bye lovelies mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Vicky, I know it's late, I'm waiting for my youngest daughter to return from a school trip.
Your poor hubby, it sounds like it may take some time to heal and I am sure it will be a difficult time for you too with him out of action. I must say though it really is so nice to hear you say how much you love him, I feel the same about my hubby too and know how lucky I am.
Anyway. Your card is totally stunning. That is a wonderful image, your colouring is amazing and the detailing is just so gorgeous.
Right, better go now!
Take care
