One Card......

3 challenges :O). before I get onto the card I need to vent my feelings at the moment hope you don`t mind... Hubby has been ill with a kidney infection and had to go for a blood test on Monday 3 lots they took :O( when he phoned me at lunch time he had a voicemail from the doctor saying they need to see him as the results have come back and he needs to have an examination so  of course we are both worried now, trouble is he works in London so is unable to see the doctor until next monday as he cannot afford to come home as he is self employed ( don`t work don`t get paid ) plus where he works they are being awkward as they are so short of staff. So glad he is leaving there next week for a new job here at home. Sorry for the waffling just needed to say something....... Now back to the card not sure whether I am that keen on it but heyho but I am sure you will tell me nicely of course lol, Decide to make this for 2 challenges that are taking place at the moment, the first one is Zodiac over at CD Sunday and the other one is for distressed on Crafty Bloggers Network and one for the boys on The Crafty pad

  2. I think it is great Chris. It reminds me of 'Lion King' with a hint of papyrus. A great combination.
    I hope your husband is better soon.
