A Big Thank You

Hi girls. Thank you for calling in to my blog. I'm glad that I have something for you today. I cannot thank you enough for your prayers, good wishes, cards and emails over the last few weeks while I've been ill. Your concern has been a great comfort and your kindness means a lot to me. I am surprised at how long it has taken to even begin to get over this infection. It completely wiped me out. I still feel weak but I'm getting there. I still have a catheter but I hope to get it out in the next couple of days. I have spent short periods in my craftroom (it took me 4 days to make this card). I have to admit that I spend a lot of time looking at my stash.
This card is for each and every one of you that visited my blog or contacted me while I was ill. I am so glad to be back again, although I don't think I'll be posting every day for a wee while yet.


The image is Magnolia's "Tilda with Hearts" coloured with my Copics and the papers are from Tim Holtz Idea-oligy Vintage Shabby. I used Dotted Bazzil as a mount. The doily's, flowers and ribbon are all from my stash.



The card is an easel card and I have photographed the front and the sentiment panel so that you can see more of the detail. The sentiment was made on my laptop.


I hope you like this card and are I would ask you to accept it as a thank you from me.
Have a great day and enjoy your crafting.
Love and Hugs,

  5. Morning Fiona,

    Its so good to see you here, and to hear your slowly but surely on the mend...
    I have missed your gorgeous cards but what a comeback so to speak, this is just gorgeous. I love that doily, just wished they made something like that as a die. The colours are gorgeous too, I love the patterned paper, so elegant....

    You take it easy, don't overdo things

  19. Good to hear you're feeling a wee bit better Fiona. What a stunning card you've made. I'm sure you're glad to be able to do some crafting even if you have to take it slowly. I've been in Crieff for a few days babysitting but I didn't manage to get to Stampaholics! We had to go down on Wednesday evening and back yesterday and I don't think our toddler and baby would have enjoyed a visit to Perth!

  30. Hi! So good to hear you`re feeling better.You`ve been really unfortunate the last half year. I`ve been struggeling with an infection myself for several months now and I know how it feels. Got to have a surgery for the fourth time because of it and I`m really tired of it. But luckily I`m not feeling ill, it`s just painful.

    This card is really lovely. Beautiful colours and papers. I love the image.

    Take care! Hugs Therese :)
