Oh Dear

Yep - time has got away with me once again and here I am playing catch -up! I was all set to return home for a few days last week and I had loads of things planned but they all had to be cancelled at the last minute as my husband got called away to London to do some work - I have to let him sometimes as who would pay for all my crafting stash if he didn't!
All thing happen for a reason and in a way it was good I didn't go home as dad was moved from Newcross hospital across Wolverhampton to a rehabilitation hospital where he is now learning how to walk again and do all those things that you and I take for granted - just having a shave at the moment wears him out completely.
I also got to go the the Stampin' Up Regional Training day in Telford - I had loads of sneaky peaks of new products coming at the end of June plus other news and offers that I can share with you very soon.

For now though I will post some pics of my DT cards from the last week - the link to the challenges will be under each pic so do go over and see the other DT work too xx

  5. So pleased to hear that your dad has been moved to the rehab hospital Jacqueline. Your cards are always beautiful and I love seeing a whole gallery of them! Vicky x

  6. A wonderful selection of cards Jacqueline, you have been busy and your crafting mojo is at full tilt! You've done a fab job with the recipe and I love the red white and metallic gold colour combo of the poinsettias card!

    All good wishes for your dad's rehab. Ruth x

  7. You've shared a lovely assortment of cards here! I wouldn't have thought to make gray leaves with the CC&S colors, but they look terrific nestled among the flowers. The gold foil lends a very festive feel to the poinsettia card.

    I'm glad your dad is doing better, and I hope he continues to improve.

  8. I love your 52CCT card this week Jacqueline - poinsettias are my favourite Christmas flower. I particularly like how you've tied your bow - I must remember that for future projects :D Hope your dad goes from strength to strength. Take care, Gill xx

  9. What a beautiful collection of cards :)

  10. Four beautiful cards, all with harmonious colour schemes and perfect detailed stamping. I particularly love the feathers on your MMM card and the waterfall on the nautical one. Marina

  11. So glad to hear your Dad is recovering. Lovely selection of cards!
    hugs, Asha
