Hello me lovelies,

Sorry i haven't been around but my little boy Jaykub is poorly and has some spots.........well not just some spots, he has quite a few......bless his little cotton socks!!
But theres a mystery.......i know what your thinking, how can there be a mystery about some ruddy spots......welllllll no-one can actually make their mind up to whether its a rash of a viral or chicken pox so basically we just have to watch them and see what happens :o/

Also to top it all off blogger decides to miss behave himself, it will let me sign in and do a few things then log me out and it wouldn't let me upload any pictures too........i was a naughty girl and shouted a few choice words at the computer, its a good job my sister wasn't here as she would slap the back of my hand lol

Anyhoo i best stop waffling before you fall asleep, you should just shout at me and say
"hey will you get on with the card girly!!"

Tonight's card has had the edges distressed, faux stitching in a couple of places and is made using one of the  gorgeous NEW Sugar Nellie Home Grown Stamps called Little Farmer, this is for all the typical little boys who love to play on their tractors and getting muddy lol you can buy this stamp from Funky Kits......right I'll show you the card and see what you think...
I think something is missing of this card but not sure what.....what do you think???


Isn't he great????
