Get Well Wishes From Humphrey!

I've got a poor daughter off school at the moment, so forgive me if I'm late with my comments. Danni fell off a swing on Saturday, we think she fell about 7ft but she landed on the side of her head & hip! Nige took her to A&E & they said just to keep an eye on her.....she is fine but boy it was a scary few days!

With our Katie taking GCSE art & her pinching my Promarkers all the time, we decided to get her some Spectrum Noirs of her own! Well after colouring this image in, I've decided I want them lolol.....they are fab & work along side my Promarkers, so now they sit on my shelf looking all fab & new lolol!!

Oh no Shell - I hope Danni is ok. There is nothing more worrying than if they fall and take a knock to the head. I hope she is feeling better soon.

Oh no I hope Danni is feeling a bit better today, you must have been going out of your mind with worry. I think it is always worse when it is a bang on the head.
Katie is still ploughing here way through those GCSE's, she is a good girl and I really hope she does well and doesn't get too stressed.
Now onto the card lol. It is a stunner, Humphrey looks so cute as always and your layout and embellies look lovely.
Kim xXx

Debbie said...

Really cute card Shell.Humphrey is so sweet.Poor Danni, bless her, hope she's doing okay.Children have a tendency to bounce back really quick - wish we did!!!!!Hugs Debbie x

Susan Flynn said...

Hi Shelll! I think you have disappeared of my dashboard that's why I haven't been around! I don't know why that happens its so frustrating!*!*! Your card is so adorable what a cute little elephant! Love the colours too.

I get my Prismas at 1Buy1Pencils here is the link: http://www.1buy1pencils.co.uk/
I must say they make a huge difference to my colouring and you can buy individual pencils which means you don't have to splash out on a whole set although they are a bit addictive like Copics!! See ya tomorrow hugs Susan x

Rebecca said...

Hi Shell, i love your card and how you've coloured that cutie elephant!
love from Rebecca xx
