But that is behind us now and we now have the task of building his strength back up and keeping him positive.
As you know I am on the design team of 4 challenge blogs and while I have been away my fellow teamies have kept everything running so smoothly and efficiently and I would like to thank them all - it's a privilege to work alongside you all.
Thank you too to all my lovely followers who have stayed with me and left me such lovely comments -and hi to all my new followers I promise my posts will get better from now on!
Right then talking of posts I had better get on with this one hadn't I?!
Sale-a-bration is in full swing and you still have until the 31st of this month to take advantage of the FREE items up for grabs. Just spend £45 pounds or more with me or through my on-line shop and you can choose a FREE item from the Sale-a-bration leaflet. These items are exclusive and you may not see any of them again when the promotion ends - so you had better get a move on!
Having trouble deciding what to buy? Well here is an idea for you. This month at my Thursday evening workshop we will be making this box card
This fab card is so easy to post too - just lift all the flaps, press flat and slip inside a standard C6 envelope.
Most of the products used to make this card can be bought as a bundle so that you can receive the stamp set for FREE, you will then have lots left over for other card making projects.
