Feel Better Soon!

I made this card for a friend of mine but could also send it to myself as I've come down with an awful bug. We had a bit of a scare a couple of days ago when Mum took a tumble and I had to ring for an ambulance, they really are fabulous men and women. One of the chaps was the same medic that came out when Mum had her heart attack and he had also been out to my Dad too. He noticed the changes to the kitchen and hoped he wouldn't be around to see the next phase .. .. Anyway, Mum is glued back together, literally, but he said that if the bug I'd got was the one his family have had, then it's rotten and will take a while to get over. I am dosed up with Lemsips, Nurofen and hot toddies - so mostly don't care anyway!!!!

My card is a sweet LOTV stamped image coloured with my Copics then cut out with a circle Nestie. The mat is a Nellie's Choice fancy circle cut from green textured card and the paper is another magazine freebie piece. I decorated with a snip of cotton lace, pretty flowers, punched leaves and a smattering of pearls.

Charisma Cardz have an anything goes theme, as does Creative Inspirations, so I'll enter with them.

Thank you for your New Year Wishes, when I am feeling a bit better I will get around to visiting everyone. I do hope that 2012 is a good year for us all and although there may be many changes ahead, I am keeping positive that they will be changes for the better.

So, to all my dear friends and followers, I raise a glass to say

Happy New Year!

  5. Sorry to hear about your Mum's tumble & that you've come down with a bug this time of year. I do hope that you both will be on the mend very quickly.
    Love your pearls with the die cut frame & don't those flowers work well with the patterned paper? Lovely - I do enjoy seeing your creations & here's to another year of blogging friendship.

  6. Happy New Year Annie,

    Hope you are soon feeling much much better and get rid of that nasty bug asap. Sounds like you have a super bunch of ambulance staff in your neck of the woods but lets just hope you wont be needing them again for some while!

    Take it easy,
