A day late....

I'm late again!! but, you'll forgive me I'm sure.

My son has been in hopsital now for near on 4 weeks. Daily visits after working all day have left me on my knees if I'm honest! Anyway, after getting our hopes up on Tuesday to have them dashed at the last moment - he was allowed home yesterday. We're not out of the woods by a long way, but, he's home, he's got the entire hospital pharmacy with him and he's still on bed rest, but, he's here where we can look after him. So needless to say I'm behind with everything! I'm actually having a crafting afternoon and am hoping to play the catch up and get ahead game!! lolxx Also,to my dear friends that I owe emails too, I haven't forgotten you and will catch up with you soonxx

Right, so down to craft business!

A massive Thank You to everyone who joined in the trinchie month last month at SCD....I hope that some of you tried something new...and by visiting all those lovely blogs I know that some gorgeous pieces were created.

As its the 3rd April, a new month and so a new theme....This month its slightly different - we are going to have a different letter per week and you create what you'd like! so, a card, inchie, arch, layout, bookmark anything as long as you use the letter of the week.

To start us off, the talented Gez has chosen the letter:-


Here's my offering:- W is for Wish.......

I have made an easel card out of sage coloured bazzil, then covered the panels with Pink Paislee's new paper range "queen bee". The image is from funky kits and was stamped and then washed with distress ink...her wings being hi-lighted with stickles. The chipboard flowers were coloured with the same DI (wild honey) and a bling centre added. Little pearls finished off the top section. The "Wish" panel is a chipboard piece covered with paper from the same set, sanded and inked, the wording "wish" are rub on letters by MM....

Do pop on over to the SCD blog - its amazing that everyone thought of something compeletly different for "w" ! and hopefully we'll inspire you to join in....


Right so who's a dummy? its FRIDAY!! and here am I, no work, thinking that its Saturday!! roflxx shame I can't say April Fool isn't it!! roflxx

Love the card the colours are just that little bit different and really nice. :)
I find that if someone is needing bed rest that usually means someone else is absolutely
*$!!ered. LOL Hope all is well very soon. Hugs
