Yee-Hah!

Thanks for all your good wishes, the hospital appointments ended up taking up the whole morning but on the plus side the orthopaedic consultant is really pleased with Tony’s progress and he should hopefully be back to work at the end of June.  He was thrilled because he’s now allowed to mow the lawn, he gets rather twitchy if it’s not done every other day, and me dragging out the mower straight in from work is NOT on my list of priorities, so it’s a win/win situation and I ain’t complaining lol.  I ended up having to have a root canal done – I swear that dentist has it in for me lol.  Let's hope that’s the last of the medical appointments for a while.

My card today features one of my favourite boys images from Lili of the ValleyYeehah.   I just think there is so much scope for this stamp and it’s one that I will use over and over.

I made this card so long ago I have no idea what papers I used, they were in a huge pile of DT stuff I have been stock-piling from Tracy at Dies to Die For.  In fact the pile is so big I am going to split it into batches and start giving it away next week, thanks for letting me do this Tracy xx.  The corrugated layer behind the image was left over packaging from Ikea, I just flattened it a bit with a rolling pin then slathered on some gesso.  A die cut star, a button and some jute string and a computer generated sentiment and job done.  I am getting quite used to quick and easy cards Smile  The postage sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley, from the Greetings Postmarks set.

  38. Hi Bev
    love your card, the corrugated card is a fabulous idea. Glad to hear the good news about Tony, tell him NOT to over do it though (VERY easily done), been there done that & got the T-shirt. Your'e feeling on top of the world, so you go a bit mad at doing things & then bang before you know it you over do things & then you are back to square one.
    hugs

  39. Just love coming here you are so real w/us and you have so MUCH TALENT. I really appreciate your
    Kindess to ALL of us. Even sharing that your paper which by the way i was just thinking how did she make that fence, i've NOT seen ANY dies that ARE THAT GGOOOD! well of course not because You used something so pratical, scrap paper which is just so real, if we can just use our creative imagination1
    You must have alot of really neat stuff that you save. How bless you are to have such a creative mind!
    GBU & U'rs. Best of Health & such. I bet U can understand that from one WHO IS DISABLED, Health is a very Precious Gift, which became suddenedly lost when I was rear-ended, and thru the shanty gamenss of Insurance Comp Big Guns Lawyers saw to it that not even the car even ever exsisted, by having the Car Rental Company make the car "Disappear" Thus noncar, No pictures, so One is not even ALLOWED in the deposition to mention a car, it's considered, 2B "hear-say" which IS NOT ADMISSABLE in COURT! So no car, then how did the accident occur, well you cannot even "Imply" that I was "Strucked" because that would imply that I was 'HIT" but by what, the jury could ask, not allowed, so the case was lost. thus here I lay disabled w/scar tissue that grows in the spine and causes painful nerve impluses trigered w/the inability to maintain ANY ONE position(yes even lying down) I am able on a "good-night" to sleep even 1hr&30-45 mins
    Any more than that and I'm wracked
    in pain which has caused me to end up in the hospital. So I'm grateful to see your BE-A-U-TTTII-FUL cards. I just Love the ones you've make w/LOV Stamps and the ones using Elizabeth Bell's Girls
    You R so Bless, Remember being on the top of the mountain, it's a gift, which I hope you'll ALWAYS
    have for U & Ur's.Peace,Joy B Ur's 2, and Love U already have, it shows in ur srt. B happy being in the present moment.enjoy ur life, it show also in ur work. luv,lou

  43. Such a fun card, Bev! Cute!

    Sorry about the root canal. UGH So not my favorite!

  44. Good to hear everything is now past - root canal - the worst experience for most of us . Great Tony is now happy to be able to mow the lawn - I can think of more exciting things to do LOL But each to his own and at least it leaves you free to make another card.
    I love the way you have done this card, using something that wasn't bought for the job! We can take a leaf out of your book.
