Indian Ocean. . . . . Wish I Was There

Good morning everyone. Hope everyone is ok but if not, here's hoping all will be well for you soon.

Now, I was lucky to have some of my samples shown on John's shows this week and this was one of them. These background dies are gorgeous. With this one, I just simply layered them all at different levels. Simple but hopefully effective.

Hope you got to see and enjoy the shows. John is back on Hochanda again next week. Such a busy boy!

Sorry this is a short post but I am having my Cardioversion treatment today. The hospital rang a couple of days ago and offered me a cancellation or I would be on Decembers list. 
With the way I have been recently, I had to say yes, and although I need it to be done, I confess to being terrified.

So, I don't know how long I'm going to be out of blog, or any other action but hopefully I'll be back here and visiting you all soon.

Thank you so much for your kind concern and encouragement during the last few months and for all your visits and comments during the last 3 years. 
Hopefully, the Cardioversion is successful and I can get back to feeling myself again (Maureen, don't go there Lol!!!)

Keep everything crossed guys.

  10. Hello Ang,
    Don't worry, they will look after you very well and get to the bottom of the problem. Once they know what's what they will be able to sort you out (someone needs to!) and I have no doubt you'll be feeling great. I'll be thinking of you and look forward to hearing all about it when you feel up to it.
    As for today's card - sumptuous springs to mind. It's so rich and opulent - a real show stopper.
