3 in 1 card and a 'new do'

Quick card and a catch up today.
This card covers 3 challenges :
1) Friday Sketchers - sketch!
2) Cute Card Thursday - At the beach.
3) Daring Card Makers - Lace days of summer.
I have no idea who the image is by it's one I've had for absolutely ages from a PIF it fitted the CCT challenge perfectly and the other 2 challenges just seemed to fit in with that! I've made a couple more cards but they are for DT challenges which are coming up this week so I can't show them just yet!

We were supposed to go out for a day at the coast with my sis, her boys and our mum and dad, but unfortunately her hubby had to go into hospital. He's been having dizzy spells and almost blacking out (this happened twice when driving), they are not sure what is wrong with him he has now been in hospital 5 days having all sorts of tests and he's having to be wheeled around in a wheel chair as they won't let him walk anywhere! Sis didn't think it was a good idea to go out for the day enjoying herself whilst he is there!
So I decided we would walk into town and get our hairs cut, we were all in need of a tidy up so this was the ideal opportunity. Lillie and I just had a trim but my baby girl had half of her hair cut off bless her!! She must of had 4-5 inches cut off 50% of me wanted it done 50% didn't as it was so much, but she has no fringe and short bits either side so I decided to have it levelled off into a bob. She was so well behaved having it done the hairdresser even commented! She absolutely loves her new do and keeps swishing it and tucking it behind her ears, I think she looks adorable and it really suits her, daddy doesn't like it he says it's too short!!!!
Here she is front view before

and after (what a face!! she can never do a nice smile when asked to!)the before back viewand afterWe then went over to see mum and dad who said she looked 2 inches taller!! I'd bought a hair colour as my roots were beginning to show so got mum to do that for me, I'm nice and red again now for a while!
Nothing much else really, we'll see what next week brings, maybe we'll get that day at the coast!

Love the card, love the orange!
I am afraid of the colour it always seems too bright for me when I try to use it, but I do have a nice piece of Apricot Bazzill :)
