Car chaos!

This has to be the strangest week ever. I am back at work full-time, but in my lunch breaks I have been car shopping! I can’t believe that we have actually found a new car and taken it for a test drive and put a deposit on it, only to discover that our old car only cost a relatively small amount to fix! We have decided to go ahead with the new car anyway as we don’t think the old one will last for much longer, but I think that Alex will find it very strange as he doesn’t like changes. We hope to collect the car tomorrow and get rid of the old one and the hire car on Friday so for one night we will have three cars at our house! Poor Alex isn’t very well and so is extremely tired and getting upset about the strangest things including what clothes he wants to wear. He is also going through a Mummy phase where I have to do nearly everything for him or he throws a tantrum…I hope he comes out of this one soon! We have had some fun playing with cars etc, but he is really too tired after nursery to do a great deal. My poor Gran has had another accident, this time tripping over a rug at my parents house and breaking her dominant arm just below the shoulder. It is such a shame as it has put her recovery back emotionally and physically, so I made her this card using the CCC idea of swirls and pearls. I can’t take credit for the idea of overlapping the two inkadinkado stamps as I saw something similar on the CM&PC forum and loved it. I have added pearls, a butterfly and the sentiment which was made with my JustRite stamps. It is such a simple card to make but so effective and I would love to know what you think. Have a great week everyone.

Sometimes it's best to move onto another vehicle as you end up throwing good money after bad.

Hope Alex's cold gets better soon.

Love the card for your gran, hope she soon starts to recover from her recent accident.

I know how things are as my Mum's been in hospital twice over the last few months after falling and breaking bones!
