Happy Anniversary 2016 Mr Duck. . . . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well. I've not had a great week, to be honest, with an A/Fib issue most days but trying to ride out the storm at home rather than going into hospital as long as my pulse stays below 120 (I have a monitor).
I should have my Echo results shortly, as the department has been without a typist for 2 weeks but she is back now and will hopefully send my letter sometime this week (NHS cutbacks I guess that they can't draft another typist from somewhere else)
Mind you, there's lots worse off than me so its naughty of me to grizzle.

Anyhoo, on to happier things. Today is mine and Mr D's Wedding Anniversary. He's not at work but I shall see how I feel before we decide what to do with the day. He would be happy parked in his chair with a bacon sarnie in one hand and a sudoku in the other, watching re-runs of The Bill on Freeview but it would be nice to have a pootle out somewhere for some fresh air for me.

Cream, black and red card
Sue Wilson Cygnus Gemini die
SB Twisted Metal Tags and Accents die (Cut twice for shadow effect)
SB Medallion One die
SB Fancy Tags One (Framed-but without the frame lol!!!)
X Cut Circles die
X Cut Alphabet die
CE Swirling Hearts embossing folder
John Lockwood Flower Hearts Elements Stamps (Sentiment and foliage)
Black and red ribbon
Black PVA pearls
Black Archival ink

PHEW !!!

Now, I know its very ornate for a fella but Mr D has been faithfully by my side these last few weeks, even when he's been completely exhausted trying to work and stay awake all hours when holding my hand at the hospital in the wee small hours, so I felt I needed to inject a bit of grandeur and make it special to show my appreciation (without involving chocolate or Toad in the Hole)
Not easy when the mojo has sent a postcard from Madagascar saying its not due home any time soon so I understand it may look a little OTT or die cut heavy for some of you.

Hopefully, Mr D will like it and bless him, he did agree I could schedule this for 6am still, even though he probably won't have seen it himself by this point (Hopefully, we are both looking at the inside of our eyelids at 6am)

Thank you, as always, for your kind and generous comments. Hope today brings you all happiness, whatever you are doing.

Ps.......Maureen, I have now amended my last post and put names to the faces on the pictures. Apologies, it was remiss of me not to do it previously...........good luck making out any faces on that blurred snap lol!!!


  1. Lovely card Ang. Hope you feel okay to do something today, and congratulations.

  2. It is beautiful and he will love it! I sometimes despair of teh NHS. In some regards it is brilliant, but badly lets itself - and it's patients - down. Anyway hopefully you will get teh results of the echo and they will be able to form a treatment protocol for yoi. Chin up kidda! Christine xx (PS Had a bit of a bad week myself - look at my last post!)
