Winged Things at TCPF

Hiya folks!

BOY - What an evening we had yesterday! Right in the middle of cooking tea for the family when I heard the most god almighty thump followed by wailing and howling. So I dropped everything and legged it through from the kitchen to find the wee one sprawled at the bottom of the stairs, hair everywhere, red faced (no not blood thankfully) and crying uncontrolably.

Poor baby decided to fly down the stairs instead of walking and apparently did somersaults bashing her hip, knee, wrist, head and face at the same time. She complained of her head and wrist hurting, so of course tea was rushed and wolfed down (kids were hungry, including wee one) and a swift trip to A&E ensued. Well, after a VERY long time waiting for the X-ray lady, she ended up with just a bump on the head, but her wrist in a half-cast type thing. Apparently kiddies bones bend rather than break, and they weren't 100% sure of it being broken. Will find out today when the X-ray is reviewed.

Still, she was desperate to go to school today, and we didn't have any head problems overnight, so off she went. Phew! So glad it wasn't any worse. I hate it when they bang their heads.

Right. That's off me chest, so today's card then is my DT piece for the

Our new theme for this fortnight is
'Things with Wings'.

I chose to use the gorgeous 'Peacock Blue' pyrimage sheet,
just looove these colours together.

My dp's are digital, as is the majority of this card with the elements coming from 'Just So Scrappy Too' (including the stitching!). I added some stickles to the pearly frame and the image for a bit of glam, and some gems here and there. The ribbon bow is hand-tied, and the charm is hand-made using jewellery bits from the bargain bin at Boots the Chemist.

Need to catch up with everything I didn't get round to doing last night. Better get on with it - TTFN!!

Some challenges:

Midnight Madness - sketch (turned sideways)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Blue + Green + feminine
Simon Says - recipe
4 Crafty Chicks - Stitching

All in the joy of having kids! Phew that the head was ok!

Josh broke his arm when he was 4 - was at a park on play equipment - he asked me to give him a leg up back onto the equipment so he could carry on playing!

We DO hospitals with Josh - quite funny really - we had a broken toe and a head injury in 10 days - saw the same dr who recognised him from the previous time! Oooops! I have to say that he was in the care of a holiday club for the second incident....he was sitting on a barrier and fell backwards, instead of letting go he held on and swivelled round to hit his head on the bottom bar of the barrier (where he had been resting his feet) - quite funny really, after we had got the all clear.

Oh - and stairs - riding a sit-on train down the stairs was a good one too!

Give her a big hug - and one for you too, to help with the shock!

Incredible card! Love the blues you used. The embellishments are fantastic. We'll keep the little one in our prayers.

Andrea said...

Such a stunning card - the image and the colour are amazingly beautiful - love all your details, especially the charm.
Hope your little girl has recovered from her fall - I hate it when the children fall down stairs, well when they have any accident actually! I think the worst one my daughter did was when she fell off a chair at nursery and bit a hole through her tongue - when I took her to the MIU to get it checked they had to make a note of her black eye, from a clash of heads a few days before!
Love, Andrea xx
