Happy Monday campers, another week and I wonder what this one has in store for us all?.....Ooooo wouldn't a lottery win be nice?!! (Yeah I know, keep dreaming Cazza!!)
I hope you all enjoyed your extra hour yesterday (UK clocks went back yesterday), did you do anything good with it? I slept through mine, probably a bit of a waste but I must've needed it right? Lol!
Thank you for all of your lovely messages about my procedure on Friday, I had a bit of a sore throat on Saturday (nothing that a tub of Strawberry Cheesecake Hagen Daaz couldn't sort out!) but I was absolutely fine again yesterday. I have a very rare blood disorder (I'm medically confirmed as one in a million!) which means my blood clots when it shouldn't. This has led to me having 2 blood clots, one of which has completely clotted my Portal Vein so my blood has to flow a different way around my body using smaller veins (which weren't meant to carry so much blood) and some of these smaller veins have gone varicose in my throat and stomach. So that's why I have to have the camera procedure, just to check I'm not getting anymore and the existing ones aren't too bad. I'm going back to hospital on Thursday for the results but hopefully everything will be the same as last time and they won't need to adjust my meds :o)
Right, I've probably waffled on too much now so onto my card which today is my Pollycraft Challenge DT card. And this week my wonderful teamie Marit has chosen the the theme...
...so I've taken the opportunity to make a Christmas card as I really need to crack on with these now, yikes! Here's my card...
(FYI the Christmas Chester set are on special offer at the moment, 4 digi's for £2.50!!)
Inside of card...
And a side view...
Can you believe this is the first time I've used a Chester! He was lovely to colour though so I think I will be using him again! This week we're sponsored by...
Letraset who are giving the winner a 5 pack of promarkers! So this is a nice and easy challenge for you all to join in on, we hope to see you over at the Pollycraft Challenge :o)
Oh before I go I want to wish you all Happy Halloween! Are you doing anything spooky today? I'm going to be spending the afternoon making creeeeepy cupcakes to take up to my sister-in-laws this evening for my Nephews and Niece (and the adults too lol!). I've also got the kids loads of sweets and of course their cards too. I think me and hubby will go home when the kids are all uber hyped lol!!
Have a spooktacular day everyone :o)
