Tripps card

Hello Lovelies! Hope you are okay today.... I feel much better - yesterday I had a rather large hangover after drinking too much on Friday night - blimey - must be turning into a teenager again. Needless to say I won't be doing that again for a long time!!!

Things are not very good with my dad again - he's really going down hill. He doesn't want to eat anything so consequently has no energy and keeps falling from the chair or the bed then my poor mum has to call the ambulance to move him. Its a downward spiral - I really don't know what to do for the best.

Onto happier things - my youngest nephew Tripp is 1 this week and this is the card I have made for him.

I decided to use the crowned rabbits alice palace stamps from Crafty Individuals. I stamped and coloured them and fussy cut them.

The background is made using distress - and my fave joggles stencil.

I do hope he likes this! 

I would like to enter this into craftyindividualsblog - anything goes

Off to see mum and dad again today - I hope we can bring a bit of sunshine to them both.

Big hugs
