3 challenges

For this card I have used the sketch which is this weeks Lili of the Valley challenge and as it has the scalloped bottom for which I used my decorative scissors this also qualifies for the Dutch Dare challenge which is to use scalloped edges.
and the following card I have made for a friend who is having a baby girl soon, by adding the heart in the top right corner this means I can enter this into this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge which is 'hearts'. The heart was in a pack of white buttons and bits I bought from a lady at a carboot, I rubbed the top side with micro dots and then sprinkled it with very fine pink mix glitter and boy does it sparkle, sadly this doesn't show in the photo.I am thrilled to be a lucky winner in Katharina's Advent Calendar prize draw, I won day 2's prize which is a Herb and his girlfriend stamp, wow this is gorgeous! What with my new Sugar Nellie's on the way and now this gorgeous stamp it feels like christmas has come early! For more information on Katharina's advent draw and the gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamps see here
Erica has some fabulous blog candy to giveaway on her blog, she started out celebrating 50,000 hits to her blog but now the counter is heading for 52,000 way to go Erica!! For more information see here

My poor little Hollie is poorly again, they said she wasn't really herself at nursery on Tuesday and came out with tears in her eyes, she said her head was hurting. Yesterday she was a lot better and went to nursery and was fine until the middle of the afternoon then she just laid on the settee, when I felt her she was burning hot, her little eyes kept watering and her nose just didn't stop running. This morning she was brighter again and said that she wanted to go to nursery and was ok, but again this afternoon she's gone really hot again and just lays on the sofa close to tears. The paracetamol suspension that the pharmacist gave me seems to work a treat once it's kicked in and she's now playing with her ds with Lillie. I just hope we can shift this before christmas.
