Hooray...It's Wednesday!

I love Wednesdays! It's the middle of the working week, and I get a new sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

I started new medication for my knee today which is both good news and bad. I really hope this medication works as I've been having issues with my knee since last November now, I can't believe its been so long! On the bad side I'm currently suffering one of the main side effects of the drug - nausea. I've got to take this medication once a week for the next three months and I really hope I don't spend all my Wednesday afternoons feeling sick!!

Oh well, things could be much worse and at least I had a fab sketch to play with when I got home from work. Arlana has created another lovely sketch for us to use, which I decided to flip again this week!

Isn't that a lovely sketch? Pop over to the SSW Blog to see how all the fab DT used the sketch. As well as an assortment of papers, I've used some mini cupcakes and lots of glitter glue to create this card.

The eagle eyed amongst you will notice something a little bit different on this card...yes I've added some embossed cupcakes! This is for the embossing challenge over at the Creative Cottage. The challenge this week is to use either dry or wet embossing on your project. I still haven't got the hang of wet embossing (not sure why but I just can't do it!) so I decided to use my trusty Cuttlebug to make these cute little cupcakes.

I'm off to make a Birthday card that someone at work has requested...its for a man who is turning 50 and he enjoys dancing, piano playing and good wine. I'm looking forward to making this card!

Thanks for stopping by today and thank you to everyone for your lovely comments, I always love reading them.
