A wee spring fairy

Hiya all, just a quick post hopefully then I can go put my feet up for ten before thinking about having to start dinner.
Today seems to have been a very long one, didn't sleep too well then at hospital with Andrew for follow uo by 8:30 . He has been getting some pain in his other foot so that needed checking, thankfully the last surgery on his right foot seems to have worked and doc is pleased that swelling is improving.
Left foot ? fracture which after xrays seemed ok, then more xrays to see if old fusing of ankle still intact, this wasn't conclusive so he had a ct scan. All in all when we left at noon we thought we'd done well. Has to go back in a couple of weeks when appointment comes for results and see whats next.

That was the morning , then cleaning up, then sorting out engineer for daft dishwasher as it's doing wierd things and engineer to fit new cooker hood which fizzled and popped and died. That was really daft, to have engineer fix it would be £240 for motor after already paying £80 for engineer to come as back plate fell off oven too, but a new one which would have new warrenty was £127 and £55 for engineer to fit, no brainer really. The only good thing is thats my 3 things to go wrong!

Sorry I didn't intend having a moan but if you can't moan to friends who can you maon to?

My card is for nothing in particular really, just that I'd stamped and coloured the image and wanted to use it as I think it's cute. I have found one or two challenges it could enter so all the better.The butterflies are some stickers I've had for ages, can't think where or what I got them for but I used 2  and cut the wings from one and stuck to the other so they could fly and still look pretty. The paper is forever friends.

 I am entering it into the following challenges:-
Lili-boo-too-spring yellow,pale green and blossom colour challenge
Allsorts-picture inspiration
Cute card thursday-layout sketch
Sir stampalot-fantasy

Hi Julye

You need to have a moan sometimes, makes you feel a whole lot better getting it out of the system.

And this is a very sweet card and what pretty butterfly backgroind paper.

Thank you for sharing with us at Stampalot and Allsorts and good luck.
