Hi Just got my tonsils out on thursday was meant to get out friday morning after breakfast but after getting painkillers i felt unwell i pressed the buzzer for the nurse as i thought oh no am going to faint ,moved the table with my breakfast as i didnt want tea & cornflakes flying everywhere and went to lie back in my bed next thing i know i was on the floor at side of my bed with a sore head ,cut nose and sore ankle as i had passed out and banged myself on the way down .

So with the ent ward closing on a friday afternoon i got transferred to another hospital for the night with having a head injury ,but got out saturday morning with a very sore throat & ears plus a bump to the head a sore nose and ankle .

Wedding Invitation Samples

Hi everyone
Thought i would show you a few wedding samples i have made for one of my husband's co-worker's & his partner ,they mentioned they would like silver & white ,so using white linen cardstock & computer generated text with the gorgeous ribbon from meiflower i managed to get those done ,took a wee while to get it placed on the card & printed but i got there finally .
Then the next ones i made from cutting files for the silhouette cameo ,the doiley effect i love ,they were pretty easy to cut ,the purple card is not the cardstock i would be using as it is just plain cardstock am thinking maybe i should have used pearilised ?,love the ribbon from meiflower too its like that famous lovely  chocolate wrapping yummy !
I would appreciate your thoughts on them .
many thanks

Cherry Blossom Birthday Card

Hi everyone

At last my doctor has referred me to the ENT clinic to see if i should get my tonsils out after the last few years with a red raw throat  with white spots, ache muscles & having no energy and too many sick days off work ,i will just be glad if i do have to get them out so i can feel better as i have felt like this far too long .

I have made this card for a work colleague who's birthday is coming up very soon .
I have to say i seen this gorgeous digi  on one of my blogging buddies Kerry's cards here  and i loved it ! I asked Kerry if it was ok to use her fab idea of adding the pearls which adds a luxury professional finish to the card .
I went into digital designer software matched the square frame with this freebie then added the cherry blossom digi ,coloured it with promarkers which i am not brilliant at but i gave it a go ,used Calamity jane font ,added pearls & a little stickles to the centre of the flowers,finished with a few butterflies from tonic studio punch & stampin up sizzix embosslits Beautiful Wings.
Hope you are all having a crafty weekend & that you are all well .
Thanks for looking x
