Apologies that this card is similar to one entered into challenges last week, when I made the original card I also coloured this stamp, due to being very busy I don't have time to craft as much this week and this card fits several challenges.
 Hubby unfortunately had an altercation with a Highland cow on Thursday, he was going to help our neighbour trim them after the vet had sedated them. The sedation didn't knock them out and when the vet was administering a further dose of sedation one of them charged out of the enclosure knocking down the gate and fence, taking with it my husband and our neighbours son. Jim describes flying through the air then landing against a strainer post hitting his hip, arm and head. He also tore his back on the barbed wire fence, his jacket and t-shirt were ripped beyond repair but his cashmere jumper had only the tiniest hole in it, explain that to me. He also managed to hit his forehead on a beam after getting up .
His tetanus jabs weren't up to date and he reluctantly agreed to go to the local hospital to have one and be checked over.He's now really stiff and sore and has a beautiful array of bruises.

Stamp from Lili of the Valley
Paper from Nitwit Collections

Oh my, your husband sounds as if he has been lucky escaping really serious injury, but of course not lucky in being thrown by a bull, hope he soon recovers.
I love the card you have made, such a cute image and great design and layout. Thanks for playing along with our 'Gingham or Checks'challenge at Winter Wonderland this week, and good luck

Hi Mag, I was going to ask after your poor hubby, it could have been more serious, bad enough as it was, poor man, I hope he mends soon. Good luck about the cashmere though.
Lovely card, love the red and white and the cute image, hugs Kate x

Such a cute card! I do remember your card from last week as this one looked familiar before I even started reading. But it is different and thus, quite all right. : ) Again, I really like that checked ribbon and this adorable image! Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
