Hello Everyone

Well I thought I would pop on just to let you know I'm still alive!
The results from my tests were not as bad as feared, I have fibroids and Endometriosis which is much better than what was suspected at first, although I am in quite a bit of pain. At present I'm waiting for a appointment to see a consultant to discuss surgery, in the meantime the painkillers continue to rob me of my mojo!!!
I'm finding it quite difficult to stay awake and to be pain free at the same time. Although I still have to work.
Anyway hopefull over the weekend I'll find some motivation to use the new Arty Farty Templates that arrived today!!!

This Thursday its all about..........." Something for the Boy's"

At This Thursday........ our first Challenge of the year is aimed at some one we all find a little difficult to craft for ........those men and boy's in our lives!!
Our sponsor for this week is the Fabulous Joanna Sheen.
Joanna supplied the Design team with these wonderful "Messy Rabbit" Footballer & Accessories Stamps. Which are also the prize for this weeks challenge.
My first piece is this gift tin which I intend to fill with footbal chocolates for one of Aiden's Friends birthday's. This is also for "Anything but a card " chalenge set by Secret Crafter and "New Stash" at Cute Card Thursday.
Next is a birthday card to match using Dawny's #6 from Papertake Weekly

  • PP & Chipboard ~ Dovecraft "Masculine"
  • Stamps ~ Joanna Sheen.

Hello Everyone, Happy Belated New Year and welcome to my first post of 2009, I'm afraid I've allowed my personal problems pre-occupy(SP?) my life for the past few weeks thus the lack of crafting. Ive signed up for a few swaps this month on the Crafts Beautiful Forum so had to push myself back into gear to honour the swaps.........stupidly I forgot to take pic's of the two tags and the bookmark I made.
After a 6 week wait I finally had an appointment at the hospital yesterday for a Ultrasound scan, so now just have to wait a week for the results to reach my G.P.!!
Over the past month Ive recieved this lovely bunch below.
First up is ...............
  • Christmas Bookmark from Big Bunnies Uk.
  • New Year Card and Cat ATC from Mittens.
  • and Thank you ATC from Helly Belly
RAK of Paper's , Buttons,Blooms and Tag from Debbie D
Rak of frames, die cuts and verse's from Shellyhope.
Thank you all very much ladies!xxxxxxxxxxxxx
