Where did the week go???

End of school holidays already!

My two eldest boys go back to school on Tuesday and they have had no fun at all this last couple of weeks with a virus then a cold.
My youngest is still sick. He's up with me now (almost midnight!) with a high temp(you could of fried an egg on his tummy about an hour ago but it's better now). But he's happy he's watching a Pooh Bear Movie.
I can't believe it's been almost a week since I posted anything.
Well, I managed to make a card tonight.
Thought I better make a start on some Mother's Day cards for JeMbellish and my Mum of course.

My Mum actually sent me an example of a card like this and I had never seen one before. Thought I would give it a go for the Crafty Card Makers Challenge this week - A Challenging Challenge.

The top flap with the sentiment opens out to the right and the other panel opens out to the left. I have no idea what this style of card is called.

I have also submitted this card in to the following challenges as well

Thanks for stopping by today.

Love the paper combination Michelle, and the little flourish on front with the bling . I found similar card on a blog hopping night and thought that you might like it . Good luck with the challenges . look forward to getting the card. One of the benefits of having a talented daughter is that you get some amazing hand made treasures as gifts .
