Overdue!!...

 ....my card's overdue that is....not my pregnant Sister who I made it for. She still has another few weeks to go yet. 

I thought this fab DigiStamp Boutique image 'Blooming Lulabelle' would be very apt for her Birthday card as seen as she's seven months gone..  

I made it weeks ago and should have blogged it sooner....but with  my Brother being in hospital, the hospital visits, not to mention the worry, I haven't been blogging much of anything.....or commenting (sorry!) I'll give you a full update on my Brother at the end of my post.


I coloured Lulabelle using my Copics.


Papers; My Mind's Eye - Dwell


Other Ingredients;
Lacey Oval Nesties from Pink Gem Designs,
X Cut Scallop Punch,
Corrugated Card,
Bias Binding,
LOTV sentiment tag stamp,
Papermania Relations Sentiment Stamps,
Craftwork Cards Sentiment,
Various blooms & Shimmer Dots.


Anyway, many thanks for all the kind well wishes regarding my Brother. As I explained just over a week ago, he was rushed to hospital after collapsing, and had to be resuscitated after stopping breathing! He was then in intensive care in an induced coma on a ventilator. We were lead to believe a possible heart problem may have caused his collapse. When he regained consciousness it was discovered he had Pneumonia! So he was put on intravenous antibiotics for a few days in hospital before being discharged into the care of our parents. So he's had to move in with them for a bit...he's still quite unwell.
He will be followed up regarding the possible heart problems. He's only 34!

Meanwhile my little man has a nasty sick bug (yuk!) he's only done one full week in his new reception class and has managed to pick something up! I just hope the others don't get it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Jenny... what a fab card for your sister... love the layout and colours you've used with that GORGEOUS image!!

So glad to hear your brother is recovering well.... what a scare!! I've heard of lots of pneumonia cases just lately... seems it's quite prevalent again - but hope it's left no lasting damage!

And hope your little one is feeling better too soon!
