Another week gone!,and a mixed one here.
Thank you so much for the good wishes lots of you left me on my last post. Glad to say the chest infection is behind me BUT I am now nursing a very painful shoulder.....and YES it has stopped that promising crafting along with the feeling that I need a good kick up the derriere to get me going again!.... I don't reckon much to this getting older lark one bit!
Before you rush off...(it is a crafty blog after all and you didn't come to hear my tales of woe) I sadly have one other snippet of news. I received an email from my son in Australia yesterday to say that Chloe (the granddaughter that the card on my last post was for) is very poorly in hospital with sepsis.
Not the sort of news one wants at any time but it is so difficult when one is all those miles away and I can't give anyone a hug.Please keep your fingers crossed for her full recovery...everything I can think of is crossed here!
Ok ...thanks for listening...now to the main event as it were....the one you called to see me for!
I made this a while back for my eldest son who who recently had a birthday.
I used a freebie die from Die Cut Essentials magazine and took two of the card designs from the magazine and incorporated them in to one for my creation.The papers were part of an accompanying free download which I found a faff to get to the right scale. I am not very good at this digi lark..lol!!
I have to say I was glad how it turned out in the end as it was fiddly and time consuming, and I even enlisted hubby's help in putting all the coloured handles on the tools which saved me quite a bit of time. One has to keep these retirees busy you know!!..lol
Well the sun has shone today for a change, I hope it has where you are.
The kitchen fitters have moved in here this last week so you can imagine the mess....and the microwave dinners...lol. I hate having workmen in the house as I always feel I can't settle to do anything...are you the same?. hubby knows what I mean about that now too!!!
Well friends, I can smell that microwave dinner. It has been good to chat with you,,,thanks for listening...best go eat it!
I hope you have had a good weekend and have a good and crafty week ahead.
Stay well and happy and we will catch up again soon I hope.Forgive me if my blogging is a bit sporadic.
