A Special Day

My health problem got a lot worse over the weekend. 
Saturday morning was spent mostly in bed. I felt nauseous and couldn't eat 
and even struggled drinking. The pain was really bad too.

I managed to get up Sunday but still felt much as the same as Saturday.
I lost 5lbs in those two days. 
I must apologise for not visiting your blogs over the last few days.
I know my plan was to lose a stone this year, but not this way.
Another visit to the Docs on Monday.
He now thinks that I have a stone stuck in my Kidney.
He even called the hospital, spoke to a consultant, who agreed with him.
He also wanted to see if I could get a scan that evening!
No luck with that though.
He said he was going to keep an eye on me!

The hospital called me this morning. They had a cancellation, 
so I have had it done. Now the wait for the results.
**********************
I must welcome my 2 new followers, Lia and Ameera.
Thank you for taking the time to join me.
Would love a message when you visit, so I can return the same to you.

This card I made over the last week. It was a stop and start card!
It's an 8" x 8" card blank and the backing card is a pack I bought at Ally Pally.
It is a beautiful card and I have it in 3 designs and also in gold.
The silver corners are the waste from the mirror board Die Cut.



The stamps are both from Lili Of The Valley, the sentiment and image.
The image was coloured with Distress Inks.  
The sentiment was heat embossed with Silver Detail Embossing Powder,
onto a piece of the backing card.
You can see the shiny design a bit on this photo.

The flowers are a Sue Wilson Die set Delicate Daisies.


The image was stamped onto Langton Water Colour 300gsm paper.
The image and backing are cut with a Craft-Too set of dies.

I used the same die for the sentiment inside.


The table that the card is sitting on was an old garden table that 
nearly ended up at the tip.
Instead, I painted it and then decorated it with Sheena Douglas style painting!
It then ended up on Create and Craft, on Sheena's Show!
Her husband had emailed me, as the table had been seen on my blog
and Sheena wanted to show it on her shows over the next 2 days. So it did.
I have got a couple of the programmes saved on my Sky box!! How sad!!
That was at least 6-7 years ago!!

I won't tell you how long it has taken me to get all this waffle on here!!
I can't sit for too long in one place, as it gets rather uncomfortable.

I promise I will try to start getting around to you all, over the next few days.

Thank you for visiting and leaving you lovely messages.

Big hugs to all,

Carolxxxxx
