Hi all,
I'm back again today to share a card I made yesterday for my friend sheila. It's quite different for me. Lots of ink, my Clarity stencil and stamps.Nice autumnal rustic colours.

Just a quick post today as I've been at hospital, thank you for your good wishes. So kind and thoughtful dear friends.We had a coffee beforehand then went for lunch and to a couple of shops as Shannen needed a few bits. I've not been home long so a cuppa and a rest is in order with my hubby and Hunter the dog.

Thanks for your lovely comments as always and for popping to see me.
Hugs Debbie xx

Lots of pink!!!

Hello all,
How are we all doing this evening? Hope you're all well. Thanks for popping by to see me.
I made this card for my Mum a while ago now for Shannen to give her. I used my creative expressions stamp which I love and the background of roses is a clearly besotted stamp. 

It's all go here. My husband has been decorating the house bit by bit. The lounge and bedroom ceiling have been freshened up today. Busy busy. I've been crafting while he's been painting. I'm at the hospital tomorrow for my first appointment with Genetics, Shannen is taking me bless her. It's to discuss any tests and monitoring I may have to have due to the cancers in my family as well as my ovarian and bowel cancer. I get my Virtual CT test results next week to see How I'm doing. It's all appointments lately. Onwards and upwards eh...

Sending you all hugs

Autumn colours

Hi all,

Thank you for visiting and all your lovely comments on my last post. You are so kind.
I've been playing with my inks and my friend's stamps again. All stamps are indigo blu. I did a resist back ground with their leaf stamp and white embossing powder.

Today I've been to my friend Julia's house for a cuppa and a catch up which was nice. She's not been keeping so well so it was nice to be able to get out and take her some flowers.

Happy Birthday Daughter

Hi all,
I'm popping by today to wish my beautiful daughter a

'Happy 22nd Birthday!'

She loves shabby chic and vintage things so I had to make her a special card. The papers are Polkadoodles, freebie stamps, Tonic punch, Clearly besotted word stamps.

We popped round to her house this morning at 10am to watch her opening her pressies.
We are going out for a meal tonight me, Shamus, Shan and her boyfriend Nath.

She had a party at the pub on Friday as I was too ill to celebrate her 21st last year, bless her. It was a good night. She also raised £60 that night for the hospital I had chemo at in Hull, bless her. it is now at £100. I'm so touched and proud of her.

Hope you're all well. Thank you for popping by to see me. I've not been managing to comment lately, but I'm hoping to catch up with you all soon.

Big Hugs

It's the lovely Caz's turn to choose the theme this month which is:
