Glittery nails

Well folks, here I am back again but on a strict time allocation as far as the computer is concerned.........ten minutes wearing sunnies in a darkened room, so you know it's gonna be short. So how much gabble can I cram into that time I wonder ?

Thank you all for your wonderful messages both on my blog and by e.mail, you are all so kind and thoughtful. My op went well and fingers crossed my sight in that eye will get back to normal, or at least to where it was before Monday happened. And providing I avoid bright lights and the computer screen I can do some crafting in another day or so.

Grief I do hope so as I now have so many pent up ideas going round with this crafting drought I need to put them into I have new goodies from Sir Stampalot which need to see some action........they have new Martha Stewart punches just arrived and some devine new Rachelle Anne Miller stamps which could turn even me into a cutie addict.

I have been longing to share this little gem with you all about my hospital activity........imagine me all cleaned up and laying on the table, in comes the consultant and his merry band of followers all donned in their sterile garb and masks. Don't ask my why, but I glanced down at my hands and I must have made some sort of face because the consultant asked me if I was what had I seem.......I ought to give a prize for guessing this one really.......nails caked in glitter. Then followed a discussion about crafting which really lightened the mood whilst they carried out the procedure (I opted to have my eye frozen to avoid a general anesthetic).

So having shared that, here is a card that was another of those I made for Stamp Addicts new programme yesterday........and it's one that Leonie lovingly pored and admired several times which really thrilled me especially as I have always admired her work. She is such a super addition to the C&C team and a joy to watch.

This card uses the JukiKins damask cube, Tim Holtz frayed burlap, Art Impression sentiment and the roses I made from the My Minds Eye DP.......the tutorial is under way, jut a bit delayed due to this weeks unplanned activities.

So good to hear you are on the mend, Brenda! Do as you are told and make sure you are fit and well for 5th December! I think there must be some law of physics that we have the most inspiration when we have the least opportunity... closely related to murphy's law! I think glitter nails is better than most shades of ink. Red and brown can get some really funny looks!

Hi Brenda, Glad all went well with the op and aren't you brave not having a general anaesthetic - they would HAVE to put me to sleep for that op lol. Fabulous card as always and I could kick myself 'cos I forgot to watch the show - am looking out for the repeat though. Take things easy and I hope your eye gets better very soon.

Love Lynda xxx

Glad to see you're back - if only briefly. Hope your eye gets back to normal real soon. I saw this card yesterday (yes I did remember) and loved it. Now I know it's one of your I can come back to it for inspiration.
More than a bit wet here today and very windy. At least we're not flooded. It runs down the mountain and is channeled around the house.

Your card is beautiful I saw Leonie the other day, has she left dawn b, once you get past the voice she is great, my Bob makes me listen with the volumn right down especially when the south african girls on too.
Wishing you the very best. janex
