I'm sorry I've not blogged for a while but my poor mum fell down a slope on a golf course and has dislocated /Fractured her ankle ,The consultant said she has literally smashed her ankle and one of the worst he has ever seen . So 2 lots of manipulations and 2 lots of surgery and now home non weight bearing - so I have come south to look after her - been here for 2.5 weeks - honestly if I couldnt have come then what would have happened to her - The NHS just sent her home with no idea how she would sleep ,shop , clean and just survive - NOT IMPRESSED , She was lucky that she has a downstairs spare bedroom and bathroom that she can use , a friend of her's is recovering from 2 lots of hip surgery and is living on a sofa- shes in her late 80's WTF !!!because no checked her home ......what a total disgrace RANT OVER sorry

Anniversary Card AAA card #93 challenge

While we were away on holiday it was our 27th wedding anniversary which we spent in Verona .But here is the card I made for my husband - hope you like it
It was made with a clearly Besotted set which I bought second hand - I love this CaS style card -even though I say so myself I was very pleased with the finished card.

I thought I would enter this in the latest AAA Challenge #93-Words have Power as the words on the heart are "I Love you "

please feel free to comment - feed back is great........

a post at last

            Sorry for not posting for a while - but been on an amazing holiday to Italy and 2 Balls and end of tennis match season bash which all lead to me getting a flu bug - so no posts to the blog for quite a while ............ Italy was stunning we did a whistle stop trip over 17 days Rome ,Florence ,Tuscany driving around ,Florence (again ) Verona and Venice .
           We had only been back 8 days when we went to Magdalene Cambridge Ball - a white tie event where the dress code for ladies was long dresses and ideally opera gloves though not essential !!!!! really was 33 degrees C ... this ball is amazing as its Champagne all night (literally ) and it finishes at 6am with a survivors photos on the river Cam...then flew home after a few hours sleep to get ready for another Ball locally to where we live !!! Some social whirl thats for sure .....Back to normality now

Mess but fun

This is a birthday card for my husbands goddaughter  - Shes a History of Art student at university . I used several Stampin Up sets - then added some random brushos - I also used foil around the butterfly but it does not show up in the photo but added some lovely shine and depth
- A bit of a mash up but I really liked the end result ( Am I allowed to say that !
