The Hobby House - Inspiration card

Hi fellow blogging friends! Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend:)
I for sure will be glad to see this week behind me ...I have spent more hours in hospital visiting my hubby (the worse patient ever) or on the maternity assessment with my daughter who has to been have baby checked as he doesn't seem a happy chappy:( They tried turning him on Monday because he is breach, but it was unsuccessful and he hasn't been right since bless him and my poor daughter is a nervous wreck so they monitor him regularly to make sure he is ok, which is good:)
They plan to deliver him on August 19th by C Section which is good!!! x Hubby comes home tomorrow (my birthday Yay) after having his gallbladder removed, which was supposed to be straight forward, but ended up with complications:(....I Can't wait to get make to normality!!!!!! On top of all that I am trying to keep hubbies business running smoothly with the help from my son who is the supervisor....
Well any way that's enough about my family problems...... My card today is for my inspriration card for The Hobby House:

Apologises for the picture quality as I still haven't had chance to get a new lens for my camera so I am still using my phone.
I have used a Hobby House topper by Mo Manning called Eskimo Kisses. For all the details on the Hobby House products that I have used hop on over to The Hobby House blog HERE and you will find links to each product that I have used. Oh nearly forgot: the holly die that I have used is Spellbinders and the Papers that I have used are Maja Design.
Also The Hobby House have a show on Create and Craft tv channel today at 1'oclk showcasing all of these products.
