Doodling Again . . . . . . . . .

Good morning dear blogging chums. Hope that all is well with you and yours.

For those of you who didn't see the amendment I made to my last post, I'm sad to say, I've got the A/Fib back. Ended up back in hospital on Thursday. Blood tests and high temp have indicated a virus/infection is lurking so it may have been this that has caused the heart to revert. Just awaiting a further cardio appointment to see what happens next. 
Needless to say, it's been very disappointing and upsetting so, a difficult few days.

Now, I missed John's shows on Thursday so I'm not sure which of my samples may have been shown. I'm hoping to try and watch on catch up tomorrow as I haven't had much of a crafty head on. This is one of them. You just knew I had to squeeze Bitty Blossoms in somewhere lol!!!

Ivory and amethyst Foundation card
Sue Wilson Doodle Rose Wreath
SB Bitty Blossoms
John Lockwood Violet Elements sentiment
Memento Dewdrop Grape Jelly ink
Dusty Concord DI
Teeny bling
Hougie for score lines

The roses are actually seated in circular apertures rather than just on top of the card.
This uses the Doodle Rose Wreath in its simplest form but sometimes simple is ok?

Thank you again for your continuing support and kindness. I will try and keep things upbeat in future as I'm sure you don't want to spend your precious time reading doom and gloom.

I'll see if I can get Flash to put on a special performance so at least I have something a bit more entertaining to report lol!!!

Haven't got round to visiting everyone again but hope that you'll understand that my head has been elswhere. I will try and remedy that over the next few days.

Take care all.

  7. Hi Ang, I love your upbeat look on life and your positivity. .....and of course, your amusing tales of life where you live. All the best. Janice xx

  8. Sweetie, you need a break from all these heart issues and the WAITING. Prayers go with you. Please know those of us who follow you do care for you and your well-being. Please get well soon. Your card today is stunning. I had not warmed up to this Doodle Rose Wreath up until seeing this lovely card you made. Love the simplicity of your design. Generally, I am more of a froufrou designer, but this design inspires me. Thank you for sharing your ideas.

  9. So sorry to read you have been on the downslope again, these viruses are nasty little b*****s aren't they. But what a super card you are showing absolute winner. Do take care Ang thinking of you as always love from Jackie xx

  10. Beautifully designed card Ang.
    I sure am sorry that you have been courting a virus. Thank goodness it has all been caught in time. I keep you in my thoughts and prayers sweet lady - take as good of care of yourself as you can. I know your doctors give you good advice. As much as you might hate to hear this - I certainly would stay away from lots of people - If people know how to do anything well - it's share their horrid viruses and bacterial infections. Be a cave person for a while - rest - drink lots of tea and read some really good books!!!!
    Sandy xx

  11. Hello My Dear Lass, gorgeous card, love those little blooms and your card design is so pretty.
    You know Ang, I think Sandy's advice is the best ever, take care of yourself, Kate x

    Love & hugs
