Sketch Saturday ~ Sketch #14 and OMG what a day I had yesterday!!!

Another fab sketch to work with ...

CS ~ papermill, DP ~ Raspberry Road, image ~ coloured with H2O's, used glitter, gems and liquid pearls on cat, flowers and brads ~ stash.

OMG did I have a cr** day yesterday?.... The answer would be yes! I had a phone call from Fae who was virtually in tears saying she needed to take Rylee to A&E cos she thought he'd swallowed a penny! We do a mad dash to hospital, where they scanned him with a metal detector which revealed.... yes he had! Off we went to X-Ray to locate the penny! It was lodged at the base of his throat, fortunately in a standing up position. He was admitted to the ward and went to theatre at 2.10pm. It only took a few minutes to remove, but they kept him for an hour just to check him out with him being so young. He was bought back to us at just after 3 on a huge trolley. Bless him he looked so tiny! He's fine now though thankfully, and the staff were wonderful! But, he knows how to work us all now ..... he has a little whinge and we're all "Oh, baby are you ok?" I'm gonna make sure that doesn't last too long lol!


  1. Sounds like you had a real big scare! I'm glad to hear Rylee is doing fine now. You did a great job on your card. Very nice colours and glitters, gems and pearls are always a pleasure to look at :). Thank you for joining us on Sketch Saturday this week.
