Penultimate Lockers Sample Card. . . . . . . . . .


Good morning everyone. Hope you're all well and looking forward to this Indian Summer we are supposed to be about to have.
Apologies for being missing from posting (bit of a rough week) but I have tried to keep up my visits to your blogs.

Thank you you to June and Maggie for clicking the "follow" button. June has kindly been commenting for a while and Maggie (Silvercrafter Blog) was one of the lovely ladies I met when Darnell came over to the UK in July.
I must also say welcome to some new ladies who have commented and been very kind.

Now, I know we are in September and I'm still showing samples I made for John's May/June show and I know this is featuring August's Child but there is only one more after this, promise lol!!! I know you're a forgiving bunch so you won't mind, will you???


Ingredients
CE ivory and rich plum card
SB Swirl Stripe Panel
SB Fancy Postage Stamps die
Sue Wilson Ara Mini Gemini
John Lockwood Summers Child Stamp (sentiment)
John Lockwood Nasturtium Everyday Sentiments (swirly stamp at the bottom)
Mei Flower plum ribbon
Memento Dew Drop Sweet Plum ink pad


This is a simple card to layer up but it was one of my favourite samples.

I hope you don't mind but I just thought I would show these beautiful flowers that arrived at a point where I was feeling particularly sorry for myself a couple of weeks ago. I apologise for the picture quality but I snapped them on my tablet. . . . . . . . .



A huge thank you to my wee pal Kate (Cuilliesocks) for cheering me up no end.

Thank you to all of you for your kind, concerned and encouraging comments. Its always touched me that you take the time to visit and leave comments but during the last couple of months, its been appreciated more than ever. (I would have just said I was touched but I know that would leave the door open for Maureen lol!!!)

I hope it wont be so long until next time. Be good!!!

Update
Sadly, another spell in hospital as pulse went bonkers again last week and a couple of issues with the anticoagulant doing its job too well, so that's why I hadn't posted for a while.
Keeping everything crossed for things settling down.

  4. Oh Gosh Ang you are having a tough time of things. I do hope that things will start to improve for you and they get your medication sorted out quickly.
    Your card is beautiful and I can understand why John asks you to help with his displays. You are a talented lady.
    Keep well.
    Hugs Wendyx

  7. Hello Ang, I've been worried as you went AWOL without warning and I couldn't get in touch with you (no, I will be not making any comments about touching!!) I'm sorry to read that things have been going haywire again, and hopefully they'll sort things out properly for you.
    Your card is beautiful and I can see it more clearly now as I had a cataract removed last Monday, and this Monday is my 29th birthday. My daughter Rachel who is 47 disputes my age, but I take no notice of her ha ha.
    You take care and don't go mad (or madder).

  9. Beautiful card Ang - you are really having a time of it. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. It often takes a while to get drugs situated to the right dose. You keep on keeping on Sugar and know that everything will work out.

  10. Beeyuutiful card and flowers, Ang! I'm glad you felt well enough to post them, but so sorry that your new doc/new meds didn't put you on a permanent even keel. It's no fun and scary and it's been going on for too long. I've got everything crossed and prayers being said that everything gets sorted soon and you can put this behind you. Sending lots of love and big hugs, my friend, Darnell

  18. Hi Ang,
    I am definitely not fed up with your lovely Lockers sample cards as they all so gorgeous.
    Love the super colour choice of this one, and the very super design also.
    I do love thos fab stamps of John's as they definitely hit the button on their sayings as my Mum was an August child and that describes her to the tee.
    Oh you poor thing having another spell in hospital.
    I do feel for you as I hate being a hospital patient.
    Isn't Kate just a very super lady to have sent you those wonderful flowers.
    Love and big hugs from my house to yours.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
