Believe in Dreams

Hello girls welcome to my blog and huge thank you for your patience with me.

Both of my kids are still sick. Luckily Niklas ear has finally stopped to bleed. I think with all that drama that happened Sunday i totally forgot to tell you what happened. Out of his left ear was constantly red blood coming, so much that his hear stuck on his scalp and it would not stop. As far we knew he had no accident where he fell.. he said he did not stick anything inside… what happened i still not know. Today i take both of them to the doctor, cause the cold has struck the kids on top of that.

Today i want to show you a card with one of Lili of the Valleys oh so lovely fairies. I just love them. This one was wonderful to color in. I rarely make cards in this color palette but for this image Basic Grey’s pad Euporia felt just perfect. (not many sheets left on that one :-)

You should use these colors more often, Claudia. They are gorgeous! Lovely job. I sure hope your boys are healthy again very soon. I'll keep you all in my prayers!

Debbie said...

Oh Claudia, sorry the kids are sick. Are you taking Niklas to an ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat Dr) to find out what caused the bleeding. Wish them well, wish I was closer, I'd make a huge pot of chicken soup for you. That always makes you feel better, and I make it Italian style with little tiny meatballs in it too!!!!

Now on to your card, love those colors, your coloring as always magnificent, your flowers perfectly placed, the butterfly a nice touch and the as always just gorgeous!!!

Hugs
Debbie
