Health update

For those of you who may have wondered how I am getting on
the good news is I do not have to have an operation.
I am going to have to learn to live with the condition I have
and alas will no longer be able to look after my husband 24/7.
I had a spell in hospital last week and am still very weak
Luckily we have 3 wonderful children who 
have supported us well.

I am too damn stubborn to give up my craft so watch this space.

Mid Month reminder

The middle of the month and time to remind you 
to pop over to Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas extra and join in the fun.

Sorry about the poor photo I think you can just see that below the ribbon I have embossed
using my score board but not enough pressure. DARN
I used express card which doesn't like water
and coloured in with DI in Mowen Lawn and Barndoor and an aqua brush.
Seems to have worked OK.

Will be in hospital tomorrow for the day for more tests.

Oh boy over the last week I have had that many needles 
for blood tests etc I feel like a pin cushion.
Both arms have fading bruises.

My mind doesn't seem to be focused so this will be a quick post.
Here is the card I have made today.

Just adore this paper from Anna Griffin
it took a lot to actually cut into it.
My little English choir boy stamp that came from 
Hobbytex in Basildon
Sponged around with Galaxy Gold ink and mounted on
gold foil card.
Couldn't find any of my narrow gold ribbon so went for gold cord
Must say I love my gold holly.

Am entering this in:
52 CCT - Sketch
CHNC Patterned paper - Anything goes
Through the craft room door - Anything goes

Thanks for dropping in.

Ava Mistletoe Fairy

Feeling a tad better but have to have more tests this week.
Then DH had a fall about 4am this morning so
I have been up since then will have to give in and have a
sleep this afternoon as I want to watch the men's final
in the tennis tonight.

Time to welcome you to another month at 
As usual we have a lovely image from Bugaboo Digi to play with
and this month I have chosen
Ava the Mistletoe fairy.
I thought she was extra cute and you know me and cute.

I coloured her with my Copics and gave her wings and her wand
the 3D treatment then fussy cut her out.
I made a frame with 
SB Decorative Labels 1 and Labels 1
and mounted Ava over this with mounting foam.

Haven't a clue where the DP came from.

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.
