In A Pot


We had a lovely day out on Saturday, we went to Plumpton Agricultural College Open Day and it was super walking round, seeing what all the students get up too.  I had a phone call 2 weeks ago from my GP to say there was a problem with my liver, but as i was seeing the Consultant last week, wait to see him - he decided to take me down to 10mg of my drugs, instead of 15mg, but he was not overly worried, as the rest of me is responding very well, but said he would monitor it.

Today's stamp, is a sweet little one that i've had for a while and thought it would be just right for the sketch at
Bearly Mine, although i did originally make the strips a little wider and had to get the iron out to get them off, so i could make them smaller !!, the papers are Basic Grey - 'Sultry and Eva', the circle behind the image is Memory Box - 'Whimsy Circle' (a die i don't use very often, as i think it's too small !!), the corner is Memory Box - 'Madera Corner', gems are 'Kaisercraft', Flowers 'Wild Orchid Crafts', leaves Sizzix - 'Flowers, Leaves & Branches'.

It's great seeing what those agricultural students get up to Sam, although some days I prefer to forget when our girl comes home with all the details, especially as she is one the livestock side !

Your card is like a bust of summertime, so very pretty.
