An attempt to catch up with blogging...

We seem to be having a very busy week in our household this week - not going places type of busy just normal family stuff that has filled up our days. I had a letter from the hospital with the results of my MRI scan on my back. I definitely have a slipped disc and have been referred to another hospital which is the neurosurgery specialist place for our region. So now I am waiting for a different hospital to write with an appointment. Although I've obviously got a major problem (it is major to me as I can't do my job, sit down for very long or walk very far which means I can't get on with my normal day to day life) I was very relieved that it was 'just' a slipped disc which can be fixed with hopefully an operation and not a growth or tumour which I was worried about.
Anyway, I got an enourmous box from Prima delivered on Tuesday filled with gorgeous scrumptious Creative Team stash goodies - I'm not kidding when I say the contents covered the whole of the kitchen work bench!! I am very lucky ducky :)


I also had a parcel from Emma's Paperie. If you haven't shopped there then I can highly recommend it and just look how it all arrives - the sweeties were delicious xx



Yesterday I had some cards featured on the It's A Creative World blog which made me very happy as I haven't had time to join in with the blog for a couple of months.



And of course I have been making cards - when I eventually do go back to work I'll be lucky if I get 2 cards made in a week so I am making hay whilst the sun shines so to speak and filling up the hours in my day when I am lying on the floor with cardmaking. I may as well make the most of it :lol:



One of the cards I made this week is for the Caardvarks challenge - Flight of Fancy

This last card is my contribution to the CPS sketch challenge. I've had this Miss Shabby Jenn digital kit since last week and hadn't gotten a chance to use it, it seemed perfect for this challenge and it co-ordinated so well with those little embroidered flowers that I bought at a craft fair and then never found anything to use them on.

As I am attempting to catch up these are some of my cards that have been posted in my galleries around digi-land but hadn't actually made it onto my blog :)

Had the same thing happen to my back,the surgery was very simple, a discectomy. They just shaved off the part of disk that was protruding. Was in hospital just a few days with a less than two inch incision and some yummy good pain killers LOL I am back to normal, whatever THAT is.
Just wanted to say how lovely and creative your cards are and wonder what scrumptious printer you use? I do not make cards but have never been able to find a decent printer for digi layouts that needed printing etc. Please share!
And get well soon, I feel your pain!
