I might have mumps!!!

My throat is no better. It is hard to swallow. I went into school today and was greeted with the comments "your face is swollen.You look like you have mumps" A phone call to NHS Direct and they said no contact with any children and I was sent straight home. My kids had mumps 4 years ago and I do have all the same symptoms they had. I looked in the mirror and my face is swollen. I have no jaw line!
I do feel a bit better in myself which means I am up to making a card or two!!

I received a Sweet Pea stamp from Angela (In my quiet time). Thank you so much Angela. You must visit her blog as her cards are really amazing. Last night I made up a quick card with it. I already had the frame cut out ( Sizzix die) and painted with Ranger Crackle paint. The image was coloured with Promarkers  which you can buy here and I then rubbed Tim Holtzs Distress Stickles over the whole image which you can't see on the photo which is a shame as it gives such a shimmery effect.The flower I made from paper from a cheap dictionary.
Love sarah XXX
