Deans birthday card...

..I made this card for my brothers birthday a couple of weeks ago..

I used patterned papers from the Stampin up 'moonlight' designer series paper stack - really impressed with these papers..

 I wasn't sure about buying anything other than the usual 12"x12" papers from SU which I love, but I have to say these 4.5"x 6.5" stacks are great, perfect for making a card like this where I wanted lots of different coordinating patterns..

..nice to play with acetate again too..I really must use acetate more!


in other news - alan's foot is still really bad :( we went to the specialist yesterday who showed us the ct scan images...OMG...his heel bone is literally smashed to pieces!!! :( they're still saying they don't need to operate (which i'm relieved about!) but they are staying that it'll be at least another 4 weeks before he can put any weight on it & around 6 months on crutches. I know we could be in a far worse situation but boy is it going to be tough for us for a while - alan has his own business so of course no work means no wages! very thrifty christmas shopping for me this year I think!!

anyway, I'll be back soon with another card for you..
