What a gap in the proceedings!

Hi all back again today after a busy end to the week at work.  Since Saturday I have also had both boys unwell and today the pup went down hill rapidly...mad dash to the vets with a follow up tomorrow.  After a couple of injections she now seems a wee bit brighter, as do the kids, phew!
I am now behind the drag curve some what on the craft front and as it's my nephews birthday on Wednesday, today I have made a quick LIM card using a Lili of the Valley pirate stamp.

I have coloured with copic markers and used my Spellbinder dies to create a porthole.  I would have liked to spend more time on it but hey that's life!  Why do I now feel like bursting into song? 
I still have a new baby card to crack on with for my niece, oh no....I can feel another CAS card a coming.

I hope you all had a super weekend whatever you were up to and hopefully this house will be soon germ free so we can all get back to normal.  Whatever that may be!

Crikey Erika, what a weekend you've had! Hope the boys and the puppy are on the mend now.

But what a fabby card you've made, just perfect for a wee boy. I can just see our Oliver as a pirate with the dog roped in to help!
