I had a lovely day at Ally Pally on Saturday with my Mum. We met up with a few blogging buddies and had a great time watching demos and seeing all the inspiration around. There are a couple of pictures at the end of this post of the new stash I acquired.
When I got back from Ally Pally I had a letter waiting for me from the hospital. As some of you are aware I have been having problems with my legs for some time. This has resulted in difficulty walking long distances. After my last consulation it was decided that I was going to be referred for an angioplasty as the problem is my arteries in my legs. This is now scheduled for 21st April. I should only be in hospital for the day and the recovery period is quite quick. So hopefully in a couple of weeks I should be able to walk better and for longer, fingers crossed.
Anyway, enough of my waffling and lets get onto crafty matters. Today I would like to share a card that I made for my Mum's birthday in March.
I used a lovely flower stamp from Honey Doo Crafts to create the flowers on pearlescent card. I stamped and heat embossed the flowers before cutting them out and shaping them. The flourish behind the flowers is also from Honey Doo Crafts. The sentiment is a stamp from another stamp set that I have. I kept the colour scheme simple and added a ribbon bow, pearl embellishment and dazzlers to the centre of the flowers.
Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think. I really appreciate all the comments that you leave me. Please accept my apologies if I don't get round to visiting all your blogs. Things are getting busy on the wedding front here for my daughter's wedding in June.
