2 Cards....1 Given And 1 Received
The first card is a card I made for the fabulously talented Kerry (curlygirlyme) as a congratulation on getting her doodle images made into rubber stamps. If you've been asleep...lol and haven't by any chance seen these gorgeous stamps yet,then pop over to her blog and have a look at her brilliant work. The stamps can be bought from Debbi Moore's website, and are a must for any serious card maker and stash addict!....lol
I used my Winobella stamp from Stampingbella, and coloured her with my Prismacolor pencils.She's matted onto blue Bazzill bling cut with my nestabilities.White cardstock with blue Bazzill Bling and turquiose and Craft's House Retro Brown PP. Blue eyelets added with Crop-A-Dile Big Bite and brown organza ribbon threaded through (really love doing this at the moment!).Brown and turquoise flowers with button effect brad in the middle.Congratulations stamp is from Woodware.
The second card I received from the lovely Tina (Rainbird) on Docrafts. Tina doesn't have a blog but I had given her a friendship award anyway,so she sent me the card as a thank you. I was totally amazed when I received it as it's a work of art and so detailed.It was just right up my street. What a fantastic card Tina and I love it. Thank you so much.
Both ladies are a huge support both with my crafting and were fab when I had my operation back in January.They are great friends and wonderful ladies.
Talking of operations. I had a follow up at the hospital yesterday.After waiting for nearly an hour they decided to tell me and 3 others that we were booked for the wrong clinic. It was the head and neck clinic that was on and I know it was definitely my abdomen I had surgery on. They tried to get a registrar to come and see us but she was called to theatre,and as it was a Bank Holiday there was no chance of a replacement.Needless to say after all that we had to be rescheduled.So a week on Thursday is the new appointment. I just hope there's someone to see me then!
