Hello Fellow Bloggers
Back to work for me tomorrow :( We have done absolutely nothing during the holidays and I'm not totally sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing!
I have made my first creation of 2012 - this is a Get Well card for my friend and colleague who had an operation just before Christmas.
The image is a Whiff of Joy stamp, and I've paper pieced the little elephant. The papers are Do Crafts Hanoverian. The swirls are a new Sizzlits die I've had from Stampin Up, and so is that gorgeous antique brad in the middle of the flower. The embossing folder was a freebie out of one of the Do Crafts magazines - but dopey me didn't check which way up it was and I debossed instead of embossed - oopsie! - but I decided to leave it as it is because it looks quite good really LOL!
I followed this week's Papertake Weekly sketch, but I couldn't make text fit so left it off. The text will just be inside the card.
I would also like to enter the following challenges:
Card Crafters Circle
Simon Says Stamp
which are all Anything Goes.
Eleri seems to be a little better today - she has managed to go to bed without Calpol and without her Hottie teddy being warmed to rest on her tummy. So I'm hoping things are on the up - but I'm still a little nervous about the results to come from the doctor tomorrow.
*** Update on 3.1.12 - Thankfully, Eleri's results were clear. She is still complaining of tummy pains though so I'm keeping a close eye on her. ***
Anyway, I'll love you and leave you with that. I do have to create a birthday card and present for one of Eleri's friends so should be back again soon. See you then.
Love, Andrea xx
