Girls Gotta Have Fun!!

Changes at the CRAFT BARN

There are big changes at The Craft Barn, as 
Sandy and Ian are going to retire. 
If you want to treat yourself to some bargains
pop over and see the full details how you can
get them. 
HERE is the link for the shop and from
there, the details are on their blog at
and facebook page.

I thought it was about time I posted some of the 
cards that are sitting in Draft!!

This was a stamp set that was a freebie from a Magazine.

Great fun to colour and love the sentiment.


I had a rotten cold last week and it's years since 
I had last had one!!
Hope it's another few years before the next one!!

In addition to that, for about 5 weeks, I have had a problem
with my left hand. Even though I am 'right handed', I
actually use my left more than my right.
That goes back to being a hairdresser for 55 years!!

OMG!!! Where did those years go!!!!!
I thought I was only 50!! (In my head I am 35!!)

It's mainly my thumb that is very painful. I went to see the 
Doctor and he said he thinks I have bruised a tendon in my hand.
It could take up to 8 weeks to mend and if not, I have to
go to a Physio.

I sometimes struggle to get the tops of Copic pens,
without having this problem.
So I make sure hubby is around to take the
tops off for me now!! 

Distress Inks I think for now!!

Thanks for popping in and I still love to read
your kind messages.

Big hugs

A super card the image and fabulous colouring and the paper could not be sorry you've been feeling poorly, I hate colds but at least they move on pretty for your thumb..ouch..hope that improves fast..I used to get a sore thumb when I was knitting and had to give it up when the pain went to my wrist.

oh dear Carol you sound to have had a rough few weeks, I hope your hand is feeling better. I'm still 35 in my head too... until I remember how many aches and pains I have!
I rarely use the magazine freebies to be honest, I have a big pile of them unopened. This one I liked though and will use, I love your fun card
Have a good weekend
