I forgot it was Thursday!

Just at the moment I don't know where I'm at .. .. Mum has shingles affecting her face and eye, although thankfully just on one side.  The doctor has called and she has even more pills and sticky cream to put in the eye, and I think I will have to call the hospital and get her laser eye treatment postponed.  Today she is not so good with a bit of a temperature so I'm hovering and checking up on her a bit more.  In between time I thought I should quickly put something together for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge, seeing as I missed out joining in with the DT girls last week.  Our theme is 'stars and stripes' with a big Happy Celebration Day to all our friends in the USA.  We are sponsored this week by Nikki at Bunny Zoe's - always a fabulous prize!

My card is a simple kraft C6 base and then papers and a die cut from Nitwits that came free with a magazine some time ago.  I already had the text stamped up in my scrap kraft pack so it was simply a case of cutting the pieces out, die cutting the star border LR0134by Marianne Design, and then hey presto!  I think the fastest card I ever made!

The Squirrel and the Fox blog are running a Christmas in July challenge so I will enter my card with them.

Oh, and in case you are wondering .. .. I finished my felt needle case and am rather pleased with it so will share with you soon - now I am working on another one .. ..
