Oh Ive had so much stress of late, so yet another apology for being AWOL.

I've been helping to care for a dear old friend of mine, who is poorly [Im her next of kin] But WEdnesday she went into a nursing home, so number one she has all the care and attention she needs and secondly the pressure is off me considerably. Knowing she is cared for 24/7 is such a comfort! Steve's Nan came out of hospital, then fell, so back in, but doing better. Mum is now all fixed after her fall, lol we laugh now, but blimey her bruised and swollen face she had!!
The saddest news is that a special friend of mine sadly passed away in the week, bless her heart she has been poorly for a little while, but been breezing through the treatment with the strongest will I've ever known.
Gill I cherish our friendship and will miss you constantly Thank you for being part of my life x

So that's been me really, along with wedding stationery and card orders...
on a lighter not it has helped the weight loss regime, I've not hit the 3 stone mark YAY

Off on a cruise with Mum [as you can see by the countdown] in about a month and do I feel like I need that!

Wishing you all a great BH weekend, be back very soon with cards as things are now settling down..HOPE that isnt famous last words LOL

OH don't I sound sorry for meself!!.....sorry not meaning to!

Congrats and new card

Firstly I have to say a HUGE Congrats to me Scoopy as she has made it onto the house mouse challenge blog. Oh how she loves these little creatures [well on stamps lol] and she really brings them to life on her cards. Well done hun...VERY well deserved and NO surprise at all hun!

OK so onto my card
Just a quick one, using PP digital images, OMGosh I love them!
They are form the mini diva collection and they are all sooper dooper! For this card I actually did a crop of the page and made them slightly bigger, the images are so easy to do this with, and also makes them such good value for money! You ant tell but the shoes and bag are glittered!
This is straight to the boutique, check out some of the other fab papers and digi images available
Im entering it into a new challenge blog CAS

Sorry Ive not been here properly, or popping to see you but all isnt great in my world right now. Lots of things going round in me head..yes yes there's a lot of space ha ha

Have a good weekend all

Lots Love xx

Challenge card

A very good morning to you all form the sunny IOW. Not hot n sunny, just sunny! Albeit slightly warmer than the weekend...How does the weather know to do that for a BH weekend!!

Anyways onto my card

I am entering it into the Fab n Funky challenge this week which is No DP [designer papers]
VERY plain, black and white as you can see, but thats me lol

Stampin Up 'Mr & Mrs' set used, I just love this set it's so versatile,
particularly for weddings and anniversaries.

The eagle eyed of you will see I have a little gap on the tulip type flower...whoops there was a teeny bit of paper when I stamped, course you dont see it til its stuck do ya!!!
So have now re-stamped n stuck it over the top...
if in doubt BODGE IT ha ha

Decided to repeat the design but used purple and white instead

Have a good day all
Tender hooks here awaiting news of Nan's condition. mind she was so much brighter when we spoke to her last night, so fingers crossed this's a good sign.

Lots Love
