Good morning everyone and thank you for popping by The Pond. There are a couple of bloggy buddies who are under the weather limping physically and emotionally at the moment so I send you happy thoughts and good wishes.
I am still limping a bit as I am only doing my Achilles exercises when I feel up to it as I'm still getting breathless on occasion. At least I have my scan appointment through for mid July and I'm seeing my GP today as the hospital have been in touch with them about my stay.
Well, the mojo didn't exactly reappear but thanks to some of your suggestions, I did solve the problem of what to do about the 18th and 50th birthday card dilemma.
My friend has two gorgeous little dawgies called Sparky and Corky. Now Corky is a little Shitzu, apologies if that's not spelt correctly (Maureen, stop it right now!!!) and I thought that the card I made here would be perfect with a couple of additions. So, added "Happy Birthday" and "50" and she loved it.
Daughter's favourite colour is turquoisey teal so this card here I adapted by removing the special day sentiment and adding "18".
Thank you to those folks who nudged me in the right direction and yes, I forgot to snap the altered cards lol!
Now, today I'm giving you another break from the Cards of Lockwood series lol!
I forgot to show you the envelope/box I made for our friends 70th birthday card that I showed you all here (sorry for all the links but I thought it better than adding all the extra photos)
Cream hammered card (PMD) - all one piece
Pink card (PMD)
SB Labels 20
Memory Box Typewriter Alphabet dies
Hobbycraft corner punch
Mei Flower pink ribbon
It needed to be more than an envelope to survive the plane ride back to their home in Spain after Janet's party and I thought I'd be different cutting her name as an aperture rather than just sticking the letters on. . . . . . .didn't think that looked too bad.
Hopefully seeing Nesta today for brunch as I'm trying to get things back to normal and spend some time out of the house, other than hospital or doctor appointments.
Hoping to sit in my craft room too at some point as I am determined to make a card. . . . . . . .one has to keep ones hand in (as said the gynecologist to the bishop. . . . . .)
Yes, I did get my burger last week but I could only manage half of it, a bit of salad and about 8 chips! (Mr D ate my onion rings and the rest of the chips as well as his own lunch!!!) I doggy bagged the other half and heated it for my tea lol!!!
Hope this week is kind to you all and especially gentle with those of you who are not 100% at the moment.
