Fairy Fun Fridays week 11

Time for another Fairy Fun Fridays challenge and this week it's 'complimentary colours' - I chose blue and orange. It's a bit easier than last week's challenge, so hopefully lots of you will join in :o)

I've used this gorgeous Lenny lion image - one of my favourite Prairie Fairy images, but somehow I can never quite do him justice with my colouring - I'm going to keep trying until I'm completely happy though! The papers are DCWV, with some shimmery orange cardstock from my stash. Nestie plain circles and Nellie circle frame dies used to cut out and frame the image. Raffia lace from Bunny Zoes, Papermania buttons, Doodlebug letter tiles and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

Some of you might remember me posting last year about my MIL's breast cancer returning... well everything seemed to have been treated ok until earlier this week when they discovered yet another lump - this time the cancer has spread to her lymph glands and they have to operate next Tuesday. I'm so worried, my MIL is a lovely woman and she's so good to us and adores the boys. The thought that she might not be around to see them grow up is awful. I cried most of last night and hardly slept at all, but today have tried to pull myself together and get a bit more positive - she is Pav's mum after all, not mine, and he's going to need me to be there for him. Please keep her in your thoughts.
