SFTW friends challenge

Hey there! My apologies for being late with this, I'm sure you understand given the weeks events, luckily for me most of this card was made Tuesday before we went to hospital so I only had to tweak a few bits to have it ready for the challenge today over at SFTW which this time is "Friends". This seems pretty apt as it has been wonderful to have all the lovely comments from my wonderful blogging friends about Caleb's visit to the hospital, thank you all so much!

This time there is 2 prizes up for grabs from LOTV and In2stamps, so the DT had freedom to use whatever they wished for their creations and what am I going to turn to if thats the case?! Of course another Saturated canary digi! I have used Prima Pixie Glen papers on my card with a LOTV recipe sentiment (isn't it cute?!) My flowers are Wild orchids and mulberry crafts and my butterfly is e crafts. My little tile inside the flowers is also from the Prima Pixie glen range and my pearls are Kort & Godt.

My SC image has been coloured with prisma pencils (these 2 remind me of 2 little sisters like my 2 girls) and I have edged in worn lipstick and machine stitched all my edges, there is of course a spot of cheesecloth under there too!

I would like to enter this into Flutterby wednesday open challenge, My mums crafts shop things with wings, Crafts and me Shabby Chic, Dutch dare recipe (I used images, PP and layers), saturated canary anything goes and bearly mine my favourite things (these sc images are always my faves).
Please do check out the rest of the teams great creations and thanks so much for coming by my blog again!
The update for today is that we had a major fight in getting his steroids down him this morn which resulted in him spitting it all over himself and me! I also had to get up at 4am to give him his inhaler but he is so used to this now that he did it really well and went straight back to sleep! He is playing lego today and seems really well so thanks for all your kind words.
Big hugs

I'm just reading your updates & your house sounds like mine with hubby taking my 4 yr old to the emergency room a few nights ago for facemasks and such after waking with wheezes and coughs...then my 20 month old got the same thing the next day with wheezes, coughs and a HUGE FEVER....more facemasks and steroids & antibiotics....spitting of the meds took place too!!! What we do for our kids! LOL

Hi Rebekah, wow another stunning card. Gorgeous colours and colouring - so gentle (really will have to get my Prismas out again soon). I'm sure you will have seen the discount code Krista has put on her blgo - getting my list ready for Monday!

Glad little one is getting better - think it's a good sign when they refuse their meds, shows they are getting their strength back! Urgh getting up at 4am tho, been there done that - not nice! What we do for the them, eh!
