Warmest Wishes


Ok i thought i was getting better with my knee until i went to bed Friday night and was awake most of in agony, so Saturday morning it was decided we should go to A&E to get it checked out as it was at least 8 times the size of the other knee !!, after an x-ray i was diagnosed with a 'Torn Cartildge', which means i'm on crutches for at least 3 weeks, so my poor OH and 4 year old son are having to run around after me - OH even attached a pair of socks under Whispers collar to bring to me, how sweet !!!

If my card is not up to it's usual standard you now know why, as i'm taking paracetamol and ibuprofen !!! I started this card last Wednesday, when i saw the Challenge for ABC Christmas, where it was to use up your old stash, that has not been opened - well it didn't take me long to find a stamp and papers that i bought in the sales last year !!!, i then found a tutorial to make a teabag tree by the lovely Jacqui and i thought i would give it a whirl, as it's something i've never tried and thought i would decorate mine with some WOC pearls rather than glitter.

Todays Card and Challenges :

ABC Christmas - where U is 'Use Your Old Stash' - such a brilliant challenge for me !!! i've used Stamp and Papers
