Hooray I made a card!

Hooray, finally I remember to take a pic of a card I made. This is a commission for a friend's grandson who turns 18 later this week. Card design pinched from the lovely Julie, stamps are from the Stampin Up Cheers to You set, I have used this so much, it's a fab set. Card blank is SU too, no idea what the colour is called, all I know is it is pale yellow! The papers are one of the designer paper sets. Scalloped circles punched with the SU punch, letters are SU too. Numbers are Gin X rub ons which I have had for eons. I coloured the beer mugs with my copic markers.
Here's hoping he likes the card!

It has been a stressful few days here as Alex had her tonsils out on Friday. She was given diclofenac painkiller, and unfortunately reacted to it. She had a nasty wheezing attack which scared me and the staff on the ward. We came home on Friday evening, and she spent most of Saturday laid on the sofa. On Sunday she was in considerable discomfort, and as a result stopped eating and drinking and taking medication. We ended up back in hospital, with dehydration and a chest infection, so more medication was needed. Finally she started to eat and drink again, and so we could come home late on Sunday evening.

Her throat is healing well, it is just smelly as it heals which is perfectly normal apparently. Her chest is bothering her, and she has ear ache too, but painkillers are keeping these under control most of the time. We are on house arrest, as she has to stay in for 2 weeks to avoid infection. Deep joy! Being with an ill child is hard work and very tiring, but hopefully in the long run she will be much better health wise. For now I am spending my days on the sofa with a clingy child so wish me luck!
