This card was very nearly a disaster! I tried to cut all the way through my card to make a window for the sentiment and almost broke my Cuttlebug in the process! Note to self; don't try cutting through 3 layers of card all at once!! The nestie die did cut through the DP and mat card though so I stamped the sentiment on my base card and then created a frame for the window to hide the slightly torn DP! The great sketch is from this weeks Inspirational Card Sketches blog.
I'm suffering with 'man flu' (ie. a cold!) at the moment so bending over my desk makes my sinuses throb! And I had to collect Thomas from nursery early today as they suspect he has chicken pox. Quite a few of the children at nursery have had it so I guess they're on the look out for it but I think his spots were heat rash as most of them had disappeared by bedtime.
