Scrappy cards for kids & a Bug update

Hi all,

Well as promised here are three cards that I made while in Glen Innes. I took my little bag of scraps, some stamped images & card bases with me. I added the bling, flowers & stamped sentiments when I got back.
A card for Sami

A card for Jenna

A card for Sheri & Steve

I decided that I am going to send these cards to Jennifer McGuire's Cards for Kids.

This last card I made yesterday. The little fairy card is made from scraps ;) as well. I coloured her in with my Prismacolour pencils & used baby oil to blend it. Then because all fairy's need some sparkle I went over her with my H2O's. Which gives a nice shimmer in a certain light. Then I added a pale pink heart pin for her wand. (I'm sure I have seen this done somewhere else before.)
A card for Meg

Lastly just a quick update on Bug. We seem to be doing well. I say this because I was suppose to have my 20 week scan on Thursday. Only to find out when I got there that Bug isn't 20 weeks according to the lady doing the Ultra-sound. So now I have to go back in 2 weeks to do the scan again. In the mean time I have an Obstritian appointment so I guess we'll have to wait & see what's happening. I'm a little dissapointed as I like to "see" how Bug is going. I guess if there where any major issues the lady would have picked up on it at the time. As she did have a quick look.

Well that's all for today, I'm off to hang out some washing & then into town. TTFN

What a productive holiday, Paula! Love your cards and so will the kind of you!

So....Bug is how old? Was there a miscalculation? I know how anxious you must be to "see" Bug, and I'm hoping you will very soon! So exciting!!
