Haven't been able to do much crafting lately as I have been laid up for the last 2 weeks with an extremely bad arthritis flare up in my right foot. I haven't even been able to walk or do anything without the aid if crutches and my wonderful husband has been doing almost everything for me, making all my drinks and food. And then he put up all the Christmas decorations too - love him lots !!
Below are a few cards that I managed to get finished before my flare up. All papers, embellishments and card etc purchased from Cardz n Scrapz.
Firstly is a birthday card for a lady who loves her 4 dogs, all of which I have pictured on her card.
This birthday card was for a man who loves gardening and his Massey Tractor.
Next is a New Home card for a very good friend of our in the UK. Her new home, with her daughter, is hopefully the start of a much brighter future for her.
This card was for my Mum who has been very ill lately and still is. She has had a very serious operation and has to have more treatment soon followed by another serious operation. This card was the least I could do and the most I could do at the moment .
This is a card I made for a swap, the criteria was to include a die cut and ribbon. The die cut is made from a Sizzix Die.
Last but by no means least is a card made for someone who loves running to give to her best friend & running mate.
As mentioned at the beginning of this post, here are pictures of some of our decorations.
On a very sad note I only recently found out that a very old friend of mine, Bob, passed away in September. I was so shocked and upset at the news as he was a lovely old man and such a gentleman. On the rare occasion that I was left to get home on my own after a night out, he would always make sure I got to my door and if I was ever feeling down, he would buy me a drink and make me laugh. May you rest in peace Bob, it was a pleasure to know you and call you my friend.
