Sweet Angel Of Mine

Hello everyone firstly thank you so much for all your well wishes for Arjay. Unfortunately they had to keep him in as his heart kept racing really high, his breathing suffered so his oxygen had to be turned up & had a temperature. His pain carried on being really bad so he had to stay on morphine. Anyway he is at this minute 5pm, on his way home from the hospital, thankfully!! Cant wait to see our little fella.

Anyhoo's I made a card for my daughter for christmas & as LOTV monthly challenge is pink & white, this was perfect. Also had to use this image as she is our Angel!!
The papers are MME 'Lost & Found - Madison Avenue' & the edges were inked with walnut & machine stitched.

Used Martha Stewart PATP for around the card. Lace is from my stash & the letters are from Maja Design.

I have made pocket for inside for 2 tags to write on. The tags are Magnolia Doo-Hickeys & put her name on using sticky letters. We call her 'Natty' short for Natalie.

The tree is Marianne Design & I covered it with white Flower Soft, it looks lush IRL.

The uber gorgeous image is 'Holy Light' by LOTV & I coloured her with copics & added shabby white fran-tage around the edge. The candle also got stickles added to the flame.

The dies I've used are Magnolia doo hickey lamp post, swirl & also Joy Crafts Snowflake. The flowers are from WOC. The doilies are from my stash. The frame around the image is Spellbinders 'Floral Oval' & also had the fran-tage treatment.

Well thats it from me. I will be round later, yesterday was bit frantic with whats going on & I was also at the hairdressers for a couple of hours. I will show you my new style & colour next week, I'm having a new tattoo on the 3rd so I will show you them both at the same time ;0)

Well I'm going now as my grandchildren have just come through the door, yayyyyyyy Arjay cuddle woooooooo hooooooooooooo.

Thanks so much for stopping by big cuddles to all.

My Exciting News & Update On My Grandson

Good morning everyone how are you? By this weather is getting darn cold now..........think I need some thermals lol.

The new challenge this week by the way is.........
CLASSIC CHRISTMAS, red, green & gold.
Now isn't that easy.......

Well I'm away but I will be back shortly with my card.
Update on Arjay is he had his operation yesterday, mum & dad were bit panicky as he was only supposed to be down theatre an hour when he ended up being down there 5 hours. He's in so much pain so his heart rate keeps going high & he's not feeding too well so they have had to insert a nasogastric tube up his nose so they can give him what he wont drink.
He has to have a scan this morning to make sure everything has stayed in place but fingers crossed the operation went well. We are hoping he picks up & our little fella can be allowed home today.
I REALLY need give my tough little fella kisses & cuddles.

Well tatty bye my lovelies I'm off to put my new badge on my side bar, woo hoo ;0)

Hugs to all mmwah

A Peaceful Christmas

Hellooooooo there, how are you all? Sorry I've been missing in action its that busy time of year for everyone isn't it. I am also in the process of having a complete new look ready for 2014 lol, I'm going lighter with my hair, the first stage has been done..........just got to wait for the second stage & then its getting quite a lot chopped off :0/ With my hair been so dark it takes a bit get it light. 

Anyhoos I have soooooooo many images coloured up that I thought I better make a start in getting them onto cards & what better time then when you have new papers ;0)
Yes I've used the gorgeous new Maja Design 'Vintage Frost Basics' the one I've used is '3rd December' & I've used both sides. They have also been inked with Walnut & machine stitched.

The candle is a Marianne die & I added Shabby White fran-tage to it. The smaller flowers are from WOC, the larger one is 'Kaisercraft' all the flowers also had Stardust Stickles added to them. I've also added 'Birch Pine Cones'. I was gonna add some gesso to them but IRL they look gorgeous in their real colour against the white flowers.

As always I decorated inside, the doily is from my stash & the tree & frame are Marianne dies.
Excuse my thumb in the pic lol, I put Minnie Mouse decals on my nails a few nights ago, Payton is Minnie Mouse

The seam binding & lace are from my stash, I made a double bow with the seam binding & added the gorgeous 'Bark Star' to the centre. I also added a wee bit of Shabby White Frantage to it.

The gorgeous stamp is 'Peaceful Tilda' from the new Winter Wonderland collection & I coloured her with distress ink markers & added stickles to her candle flame. I also masked her to add the

I also added my favourite 'Snowflake' die this year by Joy Craft & also the tree die by Marianne Design, both have been embossed with Shabby White Fran-Tage. The scalloped pearls are from WOC.

Well thats it from me for today. I will try to get around tonight if I have time. I have my grandaughter staying tonight as Arjay has to go for an operation early in the morning. He needs an operation to put in hips in place or he will never walk. He has then got to wear a body cast for 5-6 months, poor little fella. 
Will let you know how the operation goes my lovelies.

Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by & for your continued support mmwah.
Squishy hugs to you all xxxxxxxxxxxx
