Hello, and welcome back to all my crafty friends. It has been so long since I
last attended to my blog, I almost forgot how to!
January was a nightmare of a month, and I am glad it has finished, never to
return. We just seemed to crash headlong from one disaster to another...
John's broken hand has healed fairly well, but he still has a large lump over
the fracture site. He had a bad 'tummy bug', conjunctivitis, and had surgery
to remove a cancer from his nose. The biopsy results came in last Thursday,
and they show bad cells right to the edges of the excision. He has to see a
facial cancer specialist in 10 days. To finish off the month in a dramatic
manner, our kitty cat, Cookie, was bitten by a snake. After a mad drive
into town at breakneck speed, Cookie was barely alive when we arrived
at the vet's surgery. He was given anti-venom ($743.00), and lots of
other drugs. After 24 hours in intensive care, he made a truly
miraculous recovery. The total bill came to $1,100.00,
but our 'baby' is worth every cent.
I have not made any cards so far this year, because of all the 'dramas', and
also because we have been moving my studio (in a converted stable) down
to the spare bedroom in our house. The decision to do so was partly because
there have been several snakes around my studio lately! The 'move' last
week was not without several major glitches (my cupboards were too
big, and had to be cut down!). I am still trying to organise all
junk stash, now that the cupboards are smaller.
While having a break today from unpacking boxes, I updated my photo
folders in my computer and found photos of 2 Christmas cards I had
not blogged. This is one of them...a very basic card, using this
lovely glittered paper.
I have had this embossing folder for about 3 years, and realised I have
never used it.
Inside my card is very simple.
