Hops....and hopping!

Hi everyone.!
Hope you are all OK and if not . I hope you will feel better soon.There certainly seems to have been a lot of bugs doing the rounds.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments that you left on my last post. You are such a kind lot out there, and I love to read them all and truly appreciate you taking the time to leave them....mwah.

Well today is the last day of January!...where did that go? It doesn't seem like this year is going to go any slower than the last one unfortunately.
Life took over again for me of late, so apologies, I haven't been in blogland much. I'm just catching up on all your wonderful creations.I had a torn meniscus repair done on my knee. Clever thing this keyhole surgery... though sad to say the key to being 21 again didn't fit!!

Right on to crafting...or lack of! I have hubby's birthday card  to show you this time around. It got missed in the run up to Christmas........bit like buses...all at once then nothing for ages. (Birthdays and Christmas that is at our house).

I used Cardio stamps and various little ink pads using a post it note to mask the centre rectangle. The sentiments are from stash...probably the only stamp I have for husband....and yes I know ...nobody's prefect!....but he comes pretty close in my book! :)

Ok folks..time to stretch the legs. Thank you for stopping by.....I do appreciate it.

Have a good rest of the week and weekend. I do hope the weather gets a bit better here in the UK......It's squally here today...sunshine, showers and wind and sleet! Roll on Spring!
