sweet sketch balloon bear


For me this is classed as Clean and Simple but I do love how its turned out and it can be labelled a mans card.
The sketch is Sweet Sketch Wednesday and of course my little bear is LOTV.


 The papers are Kaiser and I've used the mans card compulsory zigzag punch from Martha Stewart.
 To finish I've used the clouds from Francoise Read patchwork balloon set, I do love these clouds they already have the stitched bit and are easy to cut out. The sentiment comes from that set too.
I can add it to the Lili's Little Fairies challenge of Anything Goes too
.
Well I'm not surprised that nothing got done yesterday, with the phone ringing off and on and people popping in but Mum is now settled in Nursing Home. Considering how long it takes for anything to get done at the hospital and communication is absolutely rubbish.
 We only told then Thursday we liked the home we visited and it was all booked and ready for her  to go yesterday. It's pity they weren't that efficient when it came to finding out about Mums fractured wrist from a fall she had in the hospital.

  70. In these days of austerity in addition to relative stress and anxiety about running into debt, some people balk resistant to the idea of employing a credit card to make acquisition of merchandise or maybe pay for any occasion, preferring, instead to rely on the particular tried in addition to trusted means of making repayment - cash. However, if you've got the cash available to make the purchase 100 %, then, paradoxically, that is the best time to be able to use the credit cards for several causes.
