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 ...

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
