A mixture of challenges

DSCF0893 Normally I make one card for one challenge but last night I decided to pick a few challenges and make my card to fit them all.  This card uses the sketch from the Friday Sketch challenge, the recipe from Card Makin' Mamas which was to use 1 image, 2 patterned papers and 3 embellishments (which I read as three different types of embellishments) and Basic Grey challenge Things with Wings.  It can also be entered into the 52 Card Pick up challenge which is run by Patrice.

I've use two patterned papers that came from my scraps box, the image is a Unity stamp which I have inked up using my SU marker pens and stamped onto a Nestie die and inked with SU ink pad.  Three butterflies which are from a pack of Jenni Bowlin, a white organza ribbon and a couple of clear gems.

Colette and Savannah came home from hospital on Friday - Colette was glad to be back home.  We popped up in the evening to take the Moses basket up to them as Colette felt the cot was way to big for Savannah to go in just yet - she really is quite dinky.  Colette and Tim had bought me some lovely flowers, a bottle of wine and some chocolates as a thank you for what I had done during the week - it wasn't necessary but it is oh so nice to know that you are appreciated.

It was back to work for me yesterday and it felt really strange after being off for what seemed like ages but was in fact only 16 days.  A full day today and an early turn tomorrow.  I'm hoping I will feel creative again when I get home this evening if not it will just be a glass of wine please!
