My DT news and a tricky couple of days...

Hello everyone :o)

I was invited to join the DT at Little Miss Muffet Stamps recently and was very happy to accept - if you loved Pollycraft, you can find lots of Paula's fab images there, and lots of other gorgeous stamps and digis too!  I'm part of the new Facebook team, so I'll be posting my creations there every week... pop over and join the group here.

Today's card is for the latest Little Miss Muffet challenge, which is 'seeing dots' - you can join in with that here.

Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Joanna Sheen
Stamp - Dexter Ice Cream - Little Miss Muffet Stamps
Colouring - copics
Papers - MME (can't remember the name, sorry)
Sentiment stamp - Personal Impressions
Snowflakes - MS punch
Impression Obsession Buttons die - MCH
Memory Box Party Lanterns die - MCH
Glamour Dust in Crystal

Apologies for the loooong ramble - feel free to skip it!  I'm very tired so it might not all make sense!

So... the last few weeks we've been getting sorted (and stressed!) ready for Morgan's first residential trip with school - 3 days away at an outdoor adventure type place.. abseiling, potholing, that sort of thing.  Morgan's quite accident prone, so I've been worrying about all the different ways he could injure himself.  However, what I hadn't planned for, was him injuring himself before he went!  They were leaving on the trip today... yesterday I got a call from school to say he'd had an accident during basketball - he'd fallen over and another child stood on his hand... the hand started to swell up and he couldn't move one of his fingers.

Off we trekked to the hospital... we finally left at 10.30 last night!  We waited for hours and then he was prodded and poked a bit, then we waited hours and he had an x-ray, then we waited a bit longer and it turned out he hadn't actually broken it, it was just sprained.  So they strapped it up, and thankfully his teachers said he could still go on the trip... although obviously there'll be a lot he can't do - he couldn't even put his shoes on without help this morning!

Now we've just got to wait very nervously until Friday evening when he gets back - he's not allowed to ring home, although I'm sure they'll ring me if there's a problem.

Right, off for a catch up with some of your blogs, if I can keep my eyes open long enough!  Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Fabulous card and congrats on your new DT post. Really hope that Morgan enjoys himself and that the hand doesn't hinder his enjoyment too much! I'm sure he's having a fab time - I'd say try not to worry but that's pointless as I'm sure every mother would worry! The joys of motherhood :D Big hugs, jayne ss

Congrats on the new DT place Lisa, I don't have any LIMM stamps / digis - but I do have loads of Pollycrafts and love them!!!

Gorgeous card - as always!

Awww poor Morgan as well, my best friends' little boy had an accident at a birthday party we took the kids to a couple weeks ago. Almost the same thing, someone stood on his hand and bent his fingers right back. They thought he'd broke it, so off to A&E we went (I'd given them a lift there) and an hr later - bad sprain not broken. It's a shock ended up at A&E ain't it!

I'm sure Morgans trip will be fine and they will ring if anything happens.

rachel said...

congrats on your new DT post Lisa - hope you have lots of fun. Poos Morgan - I'm sure he'll still have a whale of a time - sounds like lots of fun to me! He's lucky to have been allowed to go - two boys at Lucy's school were going on a week residential in summer and just before one broke his wrist and the other broke something else - I forget now!!! Anyway - they didn't get to go! Big Hugs - I'm sure it will all be alright xx

Fab card honey and congrats on your new DT role. They're lucky to have you.
Sorry to hear about Morgan, but I'm sure he'll have a fab time. He'll be the centre of attention too. Don't worry, he'll be back before you know it. :0)

Sazzle Dazzle said...

Great news on the DT Lisa your cards are fabulous so looking forward to seeing your Facebook posts. Hope the school trip goes well... They are a worry aren't they but no doubt he'll have the time of his life and wonder what you were fussing about back home. X

Sharon said...

Congratulation on your well deserved DT position - you will do them proud.
Your card is so cute and I love the design. The orange, red and blue colour scheme is gorgeous.

I am sure Morgan will have a fabulous time and you will think to yourself why did we worry so much once he is home - but that's what us mums do. I still worry about Sophie and she is 21.
Hugs Sharon. x

Letting them go off on their first school trip is always the worst, you will worry till he gets back, he will have a fab time (poorly wrist or not)and everything will be ok, I'm sure of it.
Congrats on your DT post, that's great news and well deserved. I love your cute cards and colour combos.

The Little Stamper said...

Hi Lisa. Just reading about Mrogan and I thought I would let you know that my son went on a similar trip in March of this year. I was soooo worried about him as it was his first trip away from home and he is not all that sporty, but he had the time of his life and was really well looked after as the instructors are well trained to look after all types of kids. Word of warning son came back in the same pair of socks that he left in....yuk!!!
