Daisy daisy....

Hi all,
How are you all today? Hope it's been a good day so far for you all. Apologies once again for my lack of blogging. I've been having a few problems with my right arm which has fired up again so it prevents me from doing alot. It's just my fibramyalgia & M.E misbehaving again. 

Here's a Sympathy card I made a few weeks ago with my favourite Sheena Douglass Daisy stamp, the sentiment is a Clearly Bssotted one.
Challenges

I got my CT scan results a couple of weeks ago for my bowel cancer and I'm still in the clear whoopee!!!! Thank you for all your support and for popping by while I've been AWOL.

I haven't been able to blog for a month, apologies.I can't seem to get to grips with blogging lately. Our cross-staffie Hunter has been poorly the last few weeks and very clingy so I haven't managed to craft much. He had a haematoma(a burst blood vessel) on his ear. It kept filling up and needed draining. Fingers crossed the steroids work this time.
Bless him. Take care.

Pink roses

Is a brisk windy day here in East Yorkshire, I've been putting a card together this weekend with my Clarity stamps and stencil. It was nice to get inky again mind you I don't need an excuse.. do you?

What have you all been doing this weekend? Anything fun?
It's been a nice quiet one for us. My Mum and my Step Dad Bob were due to pop in on their way back to Scotland as they were supposed to be in Leeds for a family wedding but my Mum is really poorly with a chest infection bless her. Hoe she picks up soon.

I thought I'd blog the card that I made this week using the Indigo Blu poppy heart and words borrowed from my friend Sheila.The background is an Indigo blu stencil, it was a fun card to make.

Happy Valentine's Day

How are we all doing today? Hope it's a good day for you! We just send cards for valentines day so here is the one I made for my hubby:
I used Clearly Bessotted stamp sets and the backing paper was from my stash as were the little buttons. I quite enjoyed making it as there wasn't any colouring involved etc... and no fussy bits as Shamus says... Men eh!!!!

Beautiful Giraffes

Hi all,
Sorry I've not posted anything since the beginning of January. I have still been crafting but just not managed to post for some reason.
Here's  a card I made yesterday to enter the Clarity Stamp challenge which is now on facebook. Hope you like it. I absolutely love giraffes, I don't know what it is about them but they are such beautiful animals.
I have still been floating about in blogland and commenting when I have been able. I must try harder to blog more.
I've been out for a cuppa today with my friend Julia to Costa coffee. We had a nice time and caught up on each others news as I've not seen her since just before Christmas.I got home at lunch time and have been crafting abit and made a quiche for tea.... it was yummy if I do say so myself...

Challenges
Thank you so much for popping by to see me, I really appreciate your comments/
Hope youve had a great day whatever you've been doing.

Lots of Glitter

Morning,
It's the 1st of the month so

It's the lovely Pat's turn to choose the theme this month which is:
'Lots of Glitter'
For my card I used a few of my dies and coated them in lots of glitter. Can't beat a bit of bling.

Now I know we've just had Christmas but if you make a few cards a month then by December you're on top of it all. I am determined to get more organised this year instead of the usual scramble at the end. 
We would love you to join in with us.
