An update on my Nan and PCJ Challenge - MAKE IT CUTE!!!

Sorry it's been awhile between posts!! I have been travelling down to see my Nan most days and with all the travelling I have been too exhausted to make cards... So Nan is finally home from hospital which is great news, she's looking well and comfortabe in her own bed in her own room. She still has a smile on her face and her sense of humour is still the same but i know that deep down she will not be with us much longer!!! The nurse was in last nightt to give nan her meds, give her a wash and get her ready for bed and she told us that her kidneys are starting to fail!! I know that she will be at peace and no longer in pain but I'm just not ready for her to go!!! I cry everytime I think about it or talk about it( so the tears are streaming down my face now). Nan has been the centre of our family all our lives and it saddens me to think that she will soon no longer be here!! So while she is still here with us I am taking the kids to see her as often as possible!! It scares me when I can't see her, like today, as I still have to live our lives and keep it as normal as possible for the boys. But I have cancelled a few things that I was doing so that I can spend a bit more time with her!!! So I will keep in contact with family members today to see how she is until I get down to see her on Friday!!

So onto challenge #3 at Paper Crafting Journey and this week our theme is Make it Cute. We are sponsored by Pink Cat Studio
And they have been kind enough to offer the winner of this challenge 5 digi images of their choice.
I had fun creating with these two pink cat studio images and even managed to make this card without following a sketch!!
I coloured the images in with tria markers and glitter pens! I used papers from my scraps stash and added, buttons, ribbon, rhinestones and the punched out stars to finish off the card!!
If you haven't already, then head on over to the PCJ blog to check out the CUTE DT cards!!
