I haven`t done any crafting over the last couple of days going up to see BIL and my appointment I`m worn out ,Had a dear friend round today to help me still with this laptop bless her she was here a good 6 hrs doing all different things and trying to help me with serif craft artist I`m determined to get my head round it but I`m struggling . Well my Daughter asked me could I make her a new Baby card last week so here is the finished article. My mum asked me to order some baby stamps of C&C a show she had watched and she would give me the money so I used one of them on this card

80th card commissioned

hi sorry not been around but this traveling to and from the Hospital is really wearing me out ,I think I have been in the house 3hrs today ,it`s going to be a long haul for my BIL we go to the hosp every other day and it over 90miles round trip .I`m also speaking to my Daughter every day as  Owen went to Australia on a Business trip for a week he left Friday ,my eldest granddaughter has had a tummy bug since Friday so Angela has had to stay in the house for 48hrs, she took her out yesterday and low and be hold she was sick again last night so house bound again for another 48hrs ,on one hand its not costing her a fortune in child-minding fee`s, I must get Skype install on this new Lappy ,I will get round to your blogs I`m sure, Here is the card I was asked to make so pic not that clever I take the pics with my phone now as Barry's camera  it a bit heavy .

 I coloured this with the new Spectrum Noir Pencils so easy nice not to have bleeding every where with there pens.
Could I ask a question all my creative expression wax have dried up does anyone know if they can be revitalised ?? I have used Gleams wax on embossing folder

quick card

well today didn`t go as planned my hubby found out this morning that his eldest Brother was rushed into hospital yesterday , after a lot of phone calls he said have you got a get well card ,I look in my box but no so hence a quick card I had to make we had to be a Darrenth Valley Hospital for 3pm for visiting ,At the hospital they said he has had a stroke and has got other underlying problems. His daughter was concerned about his van as she didn`t know where it was ,Barry kind of got out of his brother so when we left the Hosp  we went to try and find his van its like trying to find a needle in a hay stack with the sketchy picture he gave him .Its a good job Barry knows Kent we did find it ,Barry going in the morning with one of his brother`s to bring it back to our place as I can`t drive at the moment . So here is the card

Zero Crafting today

Well I have been quite lazy today my Sister came round this morning then after lunch we went visiting in Faversham to my Hubby relatives .

So I have got some cards up my sleeve that I have done whilst my back was in the first weeks in it`s protection pack ,My Sister has got our cards in a shop in the bay but the brief for the cards have to be C5 size A4 folded in half , Flat ,Simple and 3 off the same design but slightly different, she phoned me one  Saturday morning saying she needed 20 cards of me by Tuesday at the latest, knowing I couldn`t do much the only thing I could do was stamp and colour. So here is 3 of the first I did for her, I say it did give me concern also she wanted 3 Sympathy card`s which are never easy .Well it got me using my species pens but I kept away from the juicy pens , I have purchased the spectrum noir pencil`s but I stayed away from them for this challenge but I must break them out soon .Sunday night on T.V quite good so off to watch call the Midwife.

  So here are the first 3

Happy Birthday

Well I finally finished it so I can relax a bit now as my next challenges are not till nearly the end of month . It`s the first time I have stamped on vellum and cut it out with dies lining up was a challenge and a half as vellum moves so much also first time I have used my H2O`s paints . the main Image I no I didn`t get quite straight but I think I have got away with it as struggled with a large stamp get pressure on it but used my brayer in the end .

This card is going to my ex next door neighbour she is truly a wonderful woman the best neighbour u could every want ,that was are only regret when we downsized ,but we still see one another I did do some craft fairs with her and since my accident she phones me up and has got me some thing's from Canterbury ,which I required. Its her Birthday on Wednesday so this is why I had to put my heart into it and kept saying to myself  my back doesn`t hurt.
