Red White and Blue.....

A BIG hello to all my new followers !!

Still not 100% - John working in India, someone broke Lewis' toe at school by dropping him - and Eleanor on meltdown in anticipation of her SATS wonder I don't feel 100% !!

Took some time out to make Eleanor's friend a card - as with all young girls at the moment she is an avid fan of anything Union Jack....

a gorgeous bling crown that I found in my local craft store

New SU order arrived......

My Stampin' Up demonstrator has decided to longer do it - so as March was the last month of our Stamper 6 - I had to put a bumper order in to keep me in stock of my favourite arrived last week and it was like heaven !!!

I treated myself to a new die which looks stunning in felt.....and the backing papers oh please don't get me going they are just stunning.

I bought a few new digi-stamps from LCI's new release recently and haven't felt up to crafting up until yesterday - and I was so excited colouring it in.

I made this card for a friend's daughter who will be turning 15 next week and this image is just like her.

Isn't she gorgeous ??

Welcome back ....

I have been a terrible blogger recently - but ended up at the Doctors on the Thursday before we went to The Lakes and I was diagnosed with acute Bronchitis again - and had to be very very careful that it didn't turn to Pneumonia. I was prescribed steroids, anti-biotics and given a Ventolin inhaler...and I am going to be checked for Asthma :(

We had a lovely time in The Lakes with all John's family, although I then got Tonsilitis, which is so painful I never realised:(

I couldn't do the climbs and slept the first couple of days and ended up reading three books......which I will jot down and let you know what they were as they were all page turners, but we all got together each night - played games and generally chilled and had a really good laugh....although I went to bed a few hours before everyone else (including Lewis and Eleanor !!)

I'm still nowhere near myself but so much better than I was and even managed a bit of crafting today before falling asleep.

Has anyone checked Pinterest yet ?? It is so addictive beware !! You can get so much inspiration but hours go by without you realising :D

Here is a card I made for a good friend of mine - we may go months before we get together but when we do it's like we've never been apart......a true friend.
