couple of cards

Quick post, I made a couple of cards today, still not really that enthusiatically but there you go. This first card is for the Daring Cardmakers challenge which is 'animalia' it also fits the bill for the 2nd challenge from Stamp Something which is to make a 'thank you' card or gift etc, and I've also used the 2nd sketch from Friday Sketchers so 3 challenges covered with the one card, not bad heh!?! The next card was for a very last minute order, the lady from the childrens shop who has some of my cards to try and sell, rang she had a lady liking a card I had made but wanted the new baby's name put on it, could I possibly do this at such short notice as she wanted it at 9am tomorrow morning. No probs! I was in the middle of making mushroom soup so quickly made the card whilst that was simmering, I forgot that I had put the cheese and broccoli quiche that I had made a bit earlier back in the oven for a 'few more minutes' and remember it just as I finished the card, luckily it was fine, and both the soup and quiche tasted yummy for tea!
Here's the card :

Feeling much better now, still got a slight sore throat and an occassional irritating cough but that's going. Went to the doctors this morning as my foot still hurts (stumbled and landed on one of the 'branches/arms' that the wheels are on on my desk chair at least a couple of months ago), he said he can do 1 thing I have to do 2 others, so he wrote a prescription for anti-inflamitary cream (it was cheaper to buy over the counter by a whopping 11p!!!) I had to get a 'proper' pair of trainers with the cushioning and support uugghh... I don't like proper trainers I prefer the flat ones! After trying on who knows how many pairs I finally bought a pair, relunctantly, but if they are going to help my foot get better then it's worth it, dr also said I need to get a piece of foam and put that in the trainer under the arch of my foot where it hurts, to help cushion it. I haven't done this yet sounds weird but guess it's worth a go. Also have to go back on Monday with a form I have filled out in regards to 'am I depressed', I feel angry/annoyed most of the time, lack enthusiasm in most things, gggrrrrr...... at the kids ALL of the time and I don't want to be like this. So will have to wait and see what he says again on Monday.
