Two simple creations.

Two very simple and plain creations for you I am afraid. I have trapped my sciatic nerve again and been in agony all week. The doctor kindly told me the reason for this is I was over weight and unfit and would not prescribe me anything, not impressed at all.

This first card is a five sided card for a nightlight to sit inside, but as the boys are about thought best not to light one! The papers are stash and the image is Whiff of Joy.
I am entering it for the following -
  • Cute Card Thursday - Dimensions
  • ABC Christmas - Glitz and Silver

This second item is a little bookmark I made my husband but never showed you for Valentines day. He reads alot, so I thought this would suit him better than a card. I coloured my mini Tilda to look like me in distressed inks and added it to a K and Co tag.

I am entering it for

  • Spoonful of Sugar - bookmark.

Hope to see some of you at the NEC on Saturday, to say I am excited is an understatement. Just busily tiding my craft room for Cathy to stay in, is that a wise idea, do you think she will just play with my stash rather than sleeping, lol?

Love your card and bookmark. Don't understand why you left the Dr. breathing?? (just kidding there, really) But that's a terrible thing to say and to do to you. So hope that you feel better soon!

Firstly I hope you smacked the doctor one (!) and secondly, leaving Cathy in your craft room? I am sure she played with stash instead of sleeping!

Although they may be considered "simple" for your tastes, they are absolutely fabulous! I hope you are felling better by now. Thank you so much for playing along with the ABC Christmas Challenge.
