Let It Snow!

Well it's been a while since I've blogged or even made any cards but this weekend I had a little play, I'm feeling better after the operation, thanks so much to those who have sent cards, emails etc!

I'm still a bit swollen and very tired but I'm getting there, hoping I can go back to work later this week to start getting back into a normal routine!

Anyway here's a card that was inspirited by a lovely friend of mine - Maggie...

The card is embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder and I cut a circle out for a chipboard snowflake which is dangling on some ribbon, the brad in the centre is from the new Doodlebug range and they are gorgeous!!

The Let It Snow stamp is by Paper Salon with a little bit of bling, the picture doesn't do it justice because the snowflake really sparkles thanks to glamour dust!!

Ally Pally Goodies

A little late I know but I took these pictures when I came back from Ally but just didn't get round to posting them because I ended up in hospital so all this stash is sitting upstairs waiting to be played with!

12x12 stencils from Blonde Moments

Hmmm papers... mainly bought from Sugar & Spice... love pink & brown and Blue & Brown at the moment... not sure how I'll actually be able to cut into them though!!

Lily of the Valley die cuts, I fell in love with the reindeers and polar bears... so cute!!!

I loved this ribbon you can't see it but they had swirls on the ribbon, very very pretty, sparkly chipboard alphas, chocolate brown velvet ribbon, sizzlit alphabet and swirly border.

Hmmm stamps lol, I actually didn't buy many which is unlike me ,Autumn leaves set was my bargain buy as they were priced at £7.95. The two wood mounted ones at the bottom are by A Muse, I LOVE AMuse stamps but can never find anywhere in the UK that sells them... loving my blonde moments powders too!!

Update on me!

Thanks for the kind get well wishes, I'm feeling a little better, still sore and swollen and very slow on my feet but getting there slowly, just so impatient because I want to do things but I can't at the moment... I'm not used to sitting around doing nothing and don't feel up to crafting at the moment. Been to the doctors today and he's signed me off for another 2 weeks... I'm so hoping that I'm going to feel better soon so I can craft and make use of the time off, I have so many cards to make!!

I've had some lovely hand made cards from special friends, 1 bouquet of flowers arrived Saturday and 2 bouquets of flowers arrived today from some crafty friends and my work colleagues, the smell in the house is wonderful!

I've Been In Hospital!

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted.... I've been quite poorly! :(

I got rushed into hospital on Friday after passing out at work, very very scary because I was on my own in the office at the time, somehow managed to contact the local police when I came round for help.

After 6 stressful hours in A&E, in pain & with a temperature that wouldn't go down, surgens weren't 100% sure what was wrong with me but they suspected a burst appendix.

I went down to theatre after 1am Saturday morning and I'm pleased to say that it was only inflammation of the appendix, so I have had it removed by keyhole surgery.

I'm a swollen, sore & bruised at the moment and I can't move very far which I'm finding very hard because I'm one of these people who are on the go all the time, i don't know how to relax lol!

It's been a frightening week for me but I'm just starting to feel a bit brighter about it all, My fiance Paul has been a super star really has looked after me and I'm so grateful for that because I really don't know what I would have done with out him.

I miss my crafting, I so want to play but I just don't feel up to it at the moment but hope I can soon as I got some great stash from ally and I want to use it... I am so behind with cards!!

So as soon as I'm back to normal again I'll be crafting, blogging my cards and visiting those lovely blogs!!
