Furry Present !


I was signed off by Physio on Monday, yipee - but she has put me on something called SOS, which means if knee starts to blow up again or starts to hurt, then i'm too ring her straight away and she'll sorted me out with an appointment, - i'll be on this till the beginning of January.  Therefore Tuesday i was able to drive for the first time in 5 weeks and as i live in a village, with a bus service once an hour !!! you can understand my frustration, at not being able to get around.

I decided to use a stamp that i bought from a fellow crafter who doesn't have the time to craft anymore, so this is a new one for me to use, and i've mounted it all on pearlescent gold card.  I've stamped round the edge of the image with my PB 'Snow Scroll' in a gold ink and have used my ever faithful DCWV papers and my MS punch.  The gold ric rac is very old Docrafts stuck on a sheet ribbon.
