...have just wasted the last hour and a half (not to mention the cost of the petrol and the £1.20 parking charge - for 5 minutes!) driving elder son Owen to an appointment at the fracture clinic at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary to have his fractured knuckle checked out, when we arrived the waiting room was absolutely stuffed full of people with stookies, slings, crutches, in wheelchairs - Owen had even taken of the little dressing they had put on his hand so felt like a real fraud in amongst all these poor wounded people! When the receptionist told us the waiting time would be one and a half hours we decided not to bother and about turned and came home!

nb a stookie is a plaster cast in Scotland :o)

Anyway my card today is for the new Sugar Nellie sketch challenge. I have used my Scattering Love stamp which I stamped on to water colour paper after seeing a tutorial about the use of Promarkers on it, it does certainly seem to cut down the amount of bleed and I was quite pleased with the results. The flower embellishments are Petaloo, the sentiment is Hero Arts.

Entering this one for the following challenges:
Sugar Nellie - Sketch
Charisma Cardz - All about Bling
Lots to do - Birds/Wings
Quirky crafts - Summer
Miami Dooodles - Summer
StampARTic Challenge - Flowers
Fun with shapes Challenge - Flowery
