To You


Can you believe i'm posting a card at 3pm on a weekday afternoon, instead of running up to the school to pick H up ?, well today is his first day at after school care, so as to give me a rest as my hands and feet are still badly swollen, oh well i'm off the quacks tomorrow to get some wheels in motion, as i'm starting to have a sense of humour about this and it's starting to impact on my cardmaking !!!

Well with today's card i have managed to use up, all of the pink roses i had - i wonder why !!! I've had this stamp for about a year (and never used it), and didn't quite know what to do with it, until i found this fabby sketch, and it's on a 6x6 card too,the papers were free with a magazine, the ribbon is Papermania and must be at least 3 years old !!

Beautiful card Sam...I can't believe how much your style of card making has changed!!!..when you used to come to class you were adamant you didn't do anything girly, lacey, flowery, pink!!...now look at you!!!...I love it! lol xxx

Hi Sam

A whole year and this beauty hasn't seen any ink!! The poor thing! LOL!!!

Now you have used it I bet you will use it lots.

Love what you have done with it.

I hope you got on OK at the doctors and things are starting to improve for you.
