Does Anyone Know...

I changed the template on this blog this afternoon and now things are not working the same:-(
To start with, there is nowhere to change the font size & colour on here anymore, and I can't seem to add a link to anyones blog. I SWEAR I didn;t touch any other settings when I changed the tmeplate, so what's going on? Does anyone have any idea's? I'd be REALLY grateful! Just leave me a comment or email me at THANK YOU SO MUCH:-)

Mary Had A Little Lamb...And Then The Midwife Fainted!

Here is a little lamb I made using cotton buds. If you go to and scroll down to Monday May 17th 2010 you will find the instructions on how to make this cute lamb! Thank you Sankari, this is just gorgeous!

Oh My Gosh..I'm Back!

Well here I am! It was a bit of a challenge to make these cards but I DID IT! My health is slowly improving every day, & every day I feel a little bit stronger:-) Ok, so my MS punches!
The top card is one I made for a very special friend who literally 'rescued' me when I was stranded in hospital in my pj's with no way of getting home! Not only did she 'rescue' me but she drove me home, made us a nice hot cup of tea, bought my washing in off the line folded it & put it way AND washed & dried my dishes for me! A few hours later she drove me back to the hospital as I became unwell again & she stayed with me for two hours. Now this may not sound much but this wonderful lady really has panic attacks when she enters a hospital, something I did not know until much later. So her help was very much appreciated. Now that's what I call a real friend:-)
Anyway, I digress (which I usually do..) but I also made her a little set of note cards which I totally forgot to photograph:-( Oh well!
The second card has a 'frame' on top of the lady, it is a bit hard to see but maybe if you click on the picture you might get a better idea. I used sponge tape to give it height. I've used MS punches on both cards..can't you tell?!
Ok, thanks so much for visiting, hope you have a great weekend:-)

Did You Miss Me?!

As some of you may have noticed, I have not posted anything for quite awhile.
I have had some reasonably serious health problems & have recently been in hospital, twice.
I am home again now:-) & today is the FIRST day for a long time that I have felt well enough to get to my blog:-)
I still have a long way to go health wise and it has been a very slow journey, but each day I am feeling a bit better than the day before.
Stuff WILL appear on this blog soon, my creative juices are returning rapidly & I will (soon!) no longer be able to resist the urge to stamp, cut, punch snip & emboss SOMETHING, I just know it!
I just got some new MS punches in the mail, as well as chocolate..two things I cannot (and will not!) resist, so things are looking up!
Thanks for visiting & not giving up on me...I will be back soon!
Have a great day..I am! {{HUGS}} fro me to you:-)

Last Week's Cards

On all of these cards I have used my Spellbinder dies. The last card also has a Martha Stewart punch for the lace border.
I am still running round on a flat battery so I'm not writing much here!

Special Cards For April

Here are my Special Cards for April. I really haven't done much else due to not being very well for several weeks now. No-one seems to be able to give me a definite diagnosis of what's wrong:-( To be honest, I have had enough of not feeling well & want my health back asap!!
My symptoms are: runny nose, vague sore throat, extreme fatigue/lethargy, feeling tired ALL the time (sleep does not refresh me at all), memory loss (I managed to lock myself out of the house last week! (Thank heavens for helpful neighbours!) I also have very little concentration & get confused easily.
Doing ANYTHING form breathing to sleeping exhausts me & I have fever & chills all the time. Geez Louise I am falling apart rapidly!
If anyone has any idea what could be wrong with me please let me know! I have been told it could be Glandular Fever (a return of it) or stress. (I have certainly had plenty of that within the last year) I just feel like dog poop!!
I WANT to get back into crafting but I just don;t have the energy to actually do much at all. Even these easy cards have taken a big effort to do.
Thanks for visiting & I hope your day is going well! {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)
