Hullo, Hullo,
So where do I start without boring you all!!!
Life has been busy busy busy (hectic sounds worse!)
Well finally my mum has left hospital yesterday!! Hoorah!
Still a long way to go but after being in there for soooo long, she was more than ready to go home. Bless her x
My father in law is now out of hospital too and is doing really well - another Hoorah!
Thank you to all who sent well wishes it is really kind of you sending all those positive vibes! (Get me eh! I sound like "Heaven!") lolx(Big Brother contestant - just incase you thought i had lost me marbles!)
Finally we can now try to get back to semi normality, I am so pleased we are now at this point as didn't fancy Christmas at the hospital and I am damn sure they did not want to spend it there either although they were both extremely well looked after.
Unfortunately the creative side of me didn't get an awful lot done at all, but I did manage to make a Christmas card using the Magnolia Noel stamp and used dotty paper or is it spotty?? (Now that's one to think about! lol)
This was made for a Create and Take at Craftsulove and all products are from there.
If you fancy a spot of craft shopping at the weekend why not pop to Craftsulove as it is their Christmas Demo Day on Saturday where you will also see our New Classroom and Paper Room !
Lots of work has been done and the shop looks absolutely fantastic and you will be able to pick up our New Class List!!!
Apologies for not catching up with you all I am sure there are lots of wonderful crafty items you have been making and looking forward to peeking in on you all.
Big Hullo to my new followers!
I am entering my card into
Anything goes challenge - anything goes
Christmas card challenge - stash challenge has to product 1 yr old (stamp)


  1. Hi Sue
    i'm soooooooooo pleased that Mum is home from hospital, as you say you can (hopefully) get back to normal now. You poor thing I didn't realise that your F.I.L. was in hospital as well, fingers crossed that things can only get better now.
    As for the shop (C.U.L.) glad to hear ALL of that hard work is finished, I did get a peek at the new kitchen & classroom the other day when I was there, & that looks fantastic, & don't get me started on the paper room, I was in paper heaven (& poor Paula, Tracy & another lady were still putting loads more out).
    Now onto your card, lovely, love that stamp. Lets hope you get a chance to relax a little, & more importantly create more of your fantastic cards.
