Just to let you know...

I just wanted to let you know that I will be on Ideal World/Create and Craft from 9pm on the 18th April, with a number of hours until around 9pm on the 19th. I got the product today and have had a play, and all I can say is WOW, WOW, WOW! It's amazing!! I just can't wait to get cracking! I will give you more information on times as soon as I know.

I would also like to thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart for all the lovely comments and well wishes concerning my test results. They mean the world to me and are much appreciated. I wish I could visit you all and say a personal thank you, but where does the time go. I will try my best to over the upcoming weeks though.

I did actually get into the doctors on Tuesday (can I get a whoop whoop!), and to say I was absolutely amazed at the size of the queue at 7.50am on a chilly morning was an understatement! It resembled one of those queues you see at some top attraction in London! You would think that in this day and age there would be a better system in place to make sure that you can secure an appointment at the doctors without having to get up at the break of dawn, freeze your extremities off whilst you wait in line, at a time when you probably don't feel your best - after all you do want an appointment with the doc! Anyway enough of me moaning! My blood test results are still not right, so they are to be repeated (just think they are trying to bleed me dry so I won't feel the cold as I queue for the results :)) and I'm having some more tests too. I'm still waiting for my biopsy results, but can't decide if that's a good thing or not....oh well, more waiting. Not to worry, just trying to keep myself busy!

Hope you're all having a great weekend, and whereever you are you are benifiting from the good weather! It's making me feel better after what seems to have been a long winter I can tell you!

Love and hugs,

Clare x

Congratulations Baby!

Good Evening all!

Thought I should come here and post a card that I made AGES ago, and completely forgot about! I think I made it back in December on behalf of my friend who's sister had just had a baby boy. I'd had this stamp for ages and never used it (you don't say!) and thought I should team it up with some papers that I'd also had for eons and never touched.

I really wish I could tell you where I got the papers from, or what brand they are, but I have had them for so long, I really have no clue! I love matting with black cardstock though - it really makes all the colours pop!

I used my Promarkers to colour the Penny Black image and paper pieced the hammock onto the same patterned cardstock as the circle paper layer. Just look how cute this little hedgehog is...I love his feet!

I'm off to the doctors to hopefully get my blood test results on Tuesday. I got a letter on Monday asking me to go in to discuss the results, so as you can imagine I'm apprehensive to find out what they found. Unfortunately though, I have been unable to get an appointment as you have to book for the same day, and when you try and ring, the phone is constantly engaged for about 2 hours, then when you do get through, all the appointments have gone! So...I'm just going to go to the docs on Tuesday morning and wait for them to open to get myself in! I also had two biopsies about 10 days ago, and the results for that takes about three weeks, so I will be glad when I know what's going on!

Well, that's it for tonight. Hope you are having a lovely Easter!
