Fred She Said DT card and some news

Sorry for the lack of blogging this week. I have been really busy with the kids and stuff at home so haven't had time to blog. Thanks to everyone who has emailed and left comments asking how Liam is. He is fine, the swelling had went down loads and his eye looks a lot better. I decided not to call the police as the headteacher got the childs parents up to school for a meeting and they were really shocked at what had happened and his Dad told the headteacher that he would make sure nothing like this ever happens again. I wasn't there but the parents were told that I was thinking of getting the police involved and they both said they could not blame me if I did, so they seem to be quite decent people. I did say though that if their son starts bullying Liam again, I will have no hesitation and will go straight to the police. The day after it happened Liam went back to school and the boy who hit him came up to him and apologised and asked Liam if they could be friends and Liam said ok. Don't think I would of been so laid back about it as Liam was (I would of probably punched the little s**t) but at least it means that he is not getting bullied anymore.
So that's the update on Liam and now I have my DT card for Fred She Said to show you.
This was a really quick card I made this morning.
Chiara wanted me to make a card with lots of orange on it (her fav colour) and she also picked out the cute little seahorse and this is what I came up with.
The seahorse and coral seaweed thing as Tracey calls it lol are both from Emma The Mermaid set from FSS. You have seen me use a few images from this set and all the sea creatures and Emma the Mermaid all go so well together but you can also mix and match all the different elements or just use one and they still look fab.
The papers are a mix of Basic Grey, Papermania and K&Co. Flowers are a mix again, I have puched some with my Dovecraft punch, a tiny flower punch (no name) and my brand new Stampin Up 5 petal punch that I got this morning :), I have also used a few Primas from Aries Crafts , finished off with a few gems from my stash.

I also have a bit of news if anyone is interested? I was asked to be on the Little yellow Comapny design team. Did anyone notice the new banner in my sidebar? They have some cool quirky digi images and I have been having fun playing with them. They also have a challenge blog which will start this wednesday (links in my sidebar), so be sure to check them out.
I was also asked my my lovely blogging buddy Carly to be a guest designer for Charisma Cardz for 2 weeks starting this Thursday :)
See what I mean when I said I was busy with DT stuff lol. It's all fun though and I get to play with great images, what more could I ask for.

That's it for me just now. I think I have wrote enough to make you fall asleep lol.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I will stop by your blogs sometime today to see what you have all been up too :)
