I can't believe I have been away so long :( or that I still have some followers left, thank you so much for sticking with me I'm hoping to be posting regularly from here on !
A lot has happened since I last blogged, got a shock diagnosis of borderline diabetes when I developed a very painful problem with both legs where they swelled dramatically and broke out into blister type sores which resulted in my having to have my legs dressed twice a week for six weeks.
I have been very down and unable to craft at all due to not being able to sit with my legs down for any period of time, anyway after a stern talking to by my doctor I gave myself a massive kick up the backside and decided things had to change and started eating healthily etc and 4 weeks in I have lost 1 stone 4 lbs which I'm thrilled with (I have many more to go but this time I am feeling really determined that I will get there) and am starting to be able to do some exercise now my legs are almost healed.
I was thinking to help keep me motivated I might do a separate page to keep updated with my journey so that my lovely blog friends can choose to read it or not as I don't want to put anyone off looking at my blog because of waffle about things other than my cardmaking...what do you think ?
Anyway after said waffle Lol I do have a card to show you that I made before I became poorly for my friends wedding (the same friend I did the invitations for)
It was an 8 x 8 card and I used my Joanna Sheen bride and groom dies which I gave a coating of Wink of Stella, I scored the lines on the background with my hougie board and just added the joycraft heart stem and paper roses bought from Ebay.
This was the first time I had ever made a predominantly white on white card and I really love how it turned out, I will definitely be trying it again.
Off now to catch up on some of your wonderful blogs, I'm so glad to be back I have missed everyone !
Thanks for reading,
