whooppee ... I am off the crutches !!

Oh my goodness ... I am off my crutches now thank goodness ... and my news at the hospital was good too ... my biopsy was non-malignant ... ooo I could have kissed the Doctor ...

Unfortunately I have an infection in the wound and am on 1200mg a day of two antibiotics and some cream to use  and go back in two weeks ... the antibiotics turn my "wee" (sorry) a bright orange yuk !! But hey ho I can manage that ... and hubby was amazing as a nurse ... now its my turn to nurse him as he is going for an angiogram tomorrow ... phew don't like this getting old lark !! but the alternative is not good izit lol ... 



here is a little card I made for a friend who lent me the crutches




Now I have got to make a start on my Christmas cards ... I always say I will start early and never do and it is a total panic in December lol

thank you for visiting me and hope you all have a lovely weekend xx

flowers not from the garden tho !! lol






hello there ... well been having a bit of a play today ... and am very pleased with my works ...

saw these flowers being made on hochanda today ... they are cut from dies and then inked up whilst still in the die so you get a little white border around the edge ... this is my first attempt and the pink ones are more successful than the yellow ones ... not sure what I am going to do with them but enjoyed playing

and a few cards some are for the "waiting box"

welcome home sissie

insert for my sisters card
happy birthday jack

insert for jacks card






am off to the hospital tomorrow for my biopsy check up ... ooo hope all is ok and I can get off these crutches ...

have a great week everybody xx

here I am again !!

hello again ... wow I am getting good two posts in two days ... just like the old days

I actually have a lot of time to play and am enjoying my time ... but as I have not been out for five days now I am feeling a bit like a hermit !!

anyway here are my latest projects ... thanks for stopping by






now the next little card is a bit of a play around ... I did some watercolouring with a water brush ... never done this before but used the tim holtz distress ink pads like they do on the " tele "  lol ... its my first attempt and enjoyed doing it so be kind if you care to leave a comment ... lol



and finally some more foil bits ... they are just stuck on black card to show you ... its just a corner die that I cut from another of Aunties pie plates (thank you for your comment Carol lol ) think these may be good for christmas if I ever start my christmas cards ...







well that will do for today ... and you never know I may post again tomorrow and make it a hat trick ... hope you all had a great Monday xx

foil bits !!

oh my goodness had a super afternoon playing ... as in previous post I am on crutches so cant do much so decided to have a play in my craft room

it all started with my circle punch not working so i decided to punch through some foil plates that we found at Auntie's house ... I don't make pies anymore coz we eat them lol ... anyway it was quite successful then I had a bit of a brainstorm moment ...

used one of the plates ... sort of flattened it a wee bit and then put it through my cuttlebug with a few dies ... the "stem" is just the edge of the plate ... be careful tho coz they are a bit sharp when you remove them ...

ooo love the effect so had to share it with you all

happy crafting and love sandy xx

on crutches !! flippen things !!

good morning my dear friends ... sorry have been MIA ... have had a few more problems ... lol

had a mole removed from my leg still waiting for the biopsy results but in the mean time the stitches burst and I had a gaping wound that had to be restitched ... yuk ... was told I should not have been walking on it !! ... but the trouble was no one told me at the time so I was going about my business as usual ... NOW I am on crutches for two weeks until the second lot of stitches are removed ...

crutches are an absolute nightmare !! ... but at least I can escape to the craft room and be busy in there ... SO I have been busy lol and here is the evidence

wow I feel like I have got my life back

been a bit crazy lately ... sorting out Aunties funeral and stuff ... here is a photo of her a few years back collecting her OBE from the palace ... there was a big turn out by the Royal Military Police and the Red Caps ... in fact there were more of  "them" than the family but we had a grand send off one that Auntie Audrey would have been proud of ...




still lots more to do and a bungalow to sell ... but life seem to be calming down thank goodness.

went to the sincerely yours papercraft show in Portsmouth yesterday and met my dear crafty friend Jackie http://tinyrosecr.blogspot.co.uk/2016/06/altenew-roses-thank-you.html had a coffee and a wander and then parted company for a little more retail therapy

wow spent much too much and just finding stuff that must have just jumped in my shopping bag ...

here are a few cards I have made recently but not had time to post ... I promise to visit your blogs real soon ... thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great week.











oh and here is a little project that I started at the papercraft show ... really enjoyed making it and actually finished it at home ... love using MDF
