CCM #192, Tic, Tac, Toe

You wouldn’t believe the week I have had. On Tuesday my Daughter put herself in hospital as an ambulance emergency because she took an out of date antibiotic for a chest infection she was suffering with rather than visit the GP! Within minutes of swallowing it she was convulsing in pain, her whole body was swelling, she was having difficulty breathing and her head was spinning. Fortunately she realised it was a mistake and immediately dialled 999, and luckily the emergency services were there within 5 minutes, administering steroids and morphine. Several hours later, very red faced she was allowed home. She assures me she will never try that again! Scared the pants off  of me and her husband though. Who knew old out of date medication could be so dangerous!

Fast forward to yesterday. I can no longer walk any distance so my poor dog only get as much exercise as she can get on the park fetching a launched ball or down the ford swimming. I take her everywhere on my mobility scooter. We were bombing down the road to my Sister’s when suddenly she just shot off the scooter. I immediately stopped, terrified of what I would find, but luckily she was unhurt. I had forgotten to clip her to a safety harness. Thank goodness there was nothing behind me because she would have been run over for sure.

So that’s the two most important people (things ) in my life both put in danger through stupidity! Here’s hoping this week will not be fraught with danger.

Anyhow enough of my waffling, and on with today’s Crafty Cardmakers challenge which is a Tic, Tac, Toe one, following this grid

I have chosen top left to bottom right, Gems or Pearls, Stamp or Digi and Die Cuts. Apologies for the poor quality of the image. I had posted it before I realised just how poor it was and it was too late to re-photograph it.
191 Tic, Tac, Toe2a
My image is a Sarah Kay one, they are no longer made, sadly, because the quality was excellent. I coloured it with polychromos pencils, and added glitter highlights to the hat and dress. The Die cuts are from Magnolia’s Doo Hickey Range and also the Polynesian Sails Oval from Cheery Lynn Designs.  My papers are from Die Cuts with a View and that includes the scalloped background. The Happy Birthday die is from Britannia.
