Desperate bid to create something....


Hello my lovely blogger friends, it feels like forever since I actually managed to get in the craft room and make something, anything, but things have been happening here and I just couldn't get in..!!!

Anyways, I went in the room today and found this image, half done before Christmas, so why not, as you can see for yourselves I just layered up onto some navy and then white cardstock.

I did some splashing as you can see and just wrote the sentiment on.

Inside just a couple of dies in the navy card.

Thats about it really, nothing wonderful but it got my head out of everything I have tried to cover up these last few weeks, but it was good to be in there.


Here's what's been happening....

Just after new year my daughter was rushed into hospital again, I was worried as last time it was Sepsis and this sounded very similar, anyways they had her on a drip and lots of morphine for a few days, she has been so ill, she got home and very unlike Carla, has done very little, she has to go back for further tests, her School have been amazing with her, but its awful isn't it. I can't go into details but she isn't out of the woods yet, fingers crossed and lots of talks with the main man upstairs, I will let you know how she goes on. Of course this all impacts everyone around her but so long as she is ok, I really don't care....I can cope with my own health problems but when it comes to our children, well, it never gets easier does it, no matter how old they get...sorry about all this, but I wanted to let you know why I am so amiss with my blog.

Thanks so much for all the understanding, I always appreciate every single one of you.

The navy and white really make this sweet image pop. I love seeing the inside of the card too. I fear I don't do the insides of my cards much and am always on the lookout to see how others do the insides of their cards.
