Simon Says Stamp - fab sketch

Apologies for being a bit quiet over the last couple of days - everyone's ill... I've got a bit of a cold, but I'm the healthiest one out of all of us at the moment lol!  Morgan was sent home from school yesterday morning because he was hot and shivering, and it soon turned into a very yucky tummy bug.  It was quite lucky that hubby was off work poorly really, because I still had to pick Dex up from school at the normal time and Morgan was too sick to go anywhere... I've never left him at home on his own before and wouldn't want to leave him being sick, poor thing.

Soooo, I'm just hoping we don't all come down with the tummy bug now - last thing we need when we've all got a cold!  Fingers crossed eh?

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Gorgeous card Lisa, love the paper piecing and the lovely glitter.

Hope poor Morgan's feeling better now and hasn't passed the bug on to the rest of you. From past experience of school bugs they used to pass round all 3 of my kids. In fact since it was a small school they used to go round the whole school. Luckily they never passed to the adults!!

Fingers crossed for you all..

Great job on this special card. I love the design papers you chose and the great little fellow image.

The way you slid the two tags so that you could read them both is really nice.
