Thank goodness ..... back on my feet again !!!

As from today I am now more vertical than horizontal which comes as a great relief  - I could see next week looming large on the horizon and my not being prepared for all the events that are planned but, thank goodness, I'm now feeling so much more like my old self and connected to my body parts again !!! - I know that sounds strange but it is one of the weirdest sensations that I have experienced, a 'disconnected' feeling.

Thank you so much for your lovely get well wishes, they worked !!

Illness never comes at the right time ....................

.............. but it could have been worse !!

Wasn't I doing well with my posting over the last few weeks - then, oh dear, an infection literally swept me off my feet and landed me in bed - feeling a little brighter but fragile - thank goodness as my busiest week is next week and not this week - I will hopefully be back on track over the next couple of days.

Thank you for dropping by as you have done over the last few days

Vintage Vogue ....... outside my comfort zone !!

Mmmm, well I thought that, for a complete change, I would use grey and white today with a little taffeta ribbon ( not sure about that bow just yet, but it's glue dotted into position so there's not alot I can do about it now lol ).

So the deep grey cardstack from the Neutrals pack and using a little scrap of Confetti White, Vintage Vogue stamp set and Basic Grey inkpad - a little tearing, a little inking and a little background stamping with the addition of that little bow and away you go, job done.

Today I'm going to try and squeeze myself into the carboot that I missed on Wednesday so I shall be leaving early to grab my spot, let's hope I make it this time - I will report back later whether it's mission accomplished or not !!

Thank you for dropping by on your blog hopping journey - if you haven't already do take a look at the Last Chance List in the sidebar, just click on the image and it should automatically pop up for you - if I can be of any help please contact me.

Thank You card - a 'handsome hunter' version ........

No, nothing to do with a handsome hunk!!!! but it does look more masculine than my original version.

I have just quickly got time to post this as I'm waiting for a friend to arrive for coffee and she's running a little bit late - this is the colourway that I spoke about yesterday - using the retiring Handsome Hunter but the same little tree from the Forest Friends stamp set and the Garden Green inkpad and this time a little Bravo Burgundy button that gives a little lift to the card rather than a matching green one - for the Ballet Blue colourway scroll down a couple of posts. 

What do you think?  More of a masculine feel to it, or not?

Last Chance List is here .....Going, going, then most definitely gone !!!!

Oh my, I'm not the most technically minded but I have managed to put the Last Chance List on here, yeah .... and if you click on the image it will take you to the screen giving details of all the retiring stock.

Please take a look just incase your favourite, that you haven't managed to buy from your Wish List, is amongst their number - you may also be lucky and find that it is reduced by up to 50% and in other cases by 25% - take a peek - all the other stamp sets are at their original catalogue price but, let me hear you say it girls - you and the stamp sets are worth it !!!

I'm just quickly finishing some little Thank You cards this time in Handsome Hunter not Ballet Blue - it's because I managed to use all my small blue buttons and now it's the turn of the little green guys.

I'll photograph this colourway tomorrow and let you have a look to compare it to the blue way.

Busy, busy today - I am attempting to clear the garage for the winter and thought I would do a car boot - well, it was full, yes, no more cars allowed onto the field and that was just before 10.30 am ( it doesn't start 'til midday !!!! ) so I drove home - and attacked the cleaning of the house, mmmm I thought I better make some progress somewhere - after three hours it definitely looked better.
