My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

9 August 2013

Just Hanging Around

Afternoon everyone, I would like to thank everyone for their lovely comments and best wishes from my Wednesday post, unfortunately Mark's homecoming was short lived and he was re-admitted into hospital yesterday - I spent most of the day there, doing 3 round trips in total!  He has a severe infection and is now on antibiotics and won't be home until early next week now.  The hospital discharged him far too early.

Anyway today I am back in blogland with a door hanger to share:




MDF Door hanger - NEC Stash
Craftwork Cards Dolly Mixtures Amy Papers & Image

Crafty Ribbons Organza Ribbon
Pearls NEC Stash
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Liquid Pearls

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss 195 Anything Goes With Pearls

I am looking forward to tomorrow as I am off to The Great British Craft Festival at Stoneleigh Park, which is literally 20 minutes away from where I live and meeting up with my bestie Debs for some great crafty shopping and a good catch up.  I had been debating whether or not to go with Mark being in hospital, but he is insistent I go and have some "time out" - love him.

Thanks for visiting today, you make my day!
