Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge!!!

Yay!!! another week, another challenge over at Crafty Catz. For this week challenge 16's theme is "LOVE". It could be anniversary, wedding, engagement or just a card to say "i love you", but you must have a heart or hearts somewhere on the card. Well what better card to do than a "valentine's Day" card for my hubby??? i know it is a little earlier but thought it would kill 2 birds with one stone so to speak & save me doing it earlier rather than last minute like usual.
I have used Penny Black stamps & my heart punch, Kaiser rub on's & black peel off's with Papermania black & white polka dot paper on white linen cardstock.
I loved creating this card & thankfully hubby was out while i was making it & not nosing around like usual!!!

Just a quick catch up guys, apologies that i have not been on much lately but have had a bad flare up of my RA & have virtually been unable to move my right elbow joint. On Monday i had a steroid injection into the joint which has taken a few days to kick in, even then it has not worked as well as last time. My knees & hips are also really bad & the Doctor told me that he can also inject them but i declined at this appointment as nearly passed out with pain when he did my elbow!!! think i would have landed in a heap on the floor had he injected anywhere else! maybe consider that another time i think.

Having a good weekend. Have had a crafty day with my lovely friend Gaynor & possibly having another friend over tomorrow for a session. Had a lovely chat with my sister Helen in Australia this morning as they are on Cyclone alert & wanted to make sure they were all prepared & safe. Also if their phone & internet connection go down it may be a while before we talk again (usually talk a couple of times a week!). Just hoping & praying that the cyclone will miss them altogether, at the moment it is in their path & due to hit around 9pm tomorrow night, she lives near Port Douglas & Cannes in North Queensland. She will contact me as soon as she can, in the meantime i will keep checking the internet.

I am keeping busy with card orders at the moment so very happy my arm is more functional now!!! trying to make a bit of money from my cards to pay for some more nesties for my Cuttlebug. Also got the craft fair at the Brighton Centre coming up in February (yipee!) on 5th to 7th so will need some spending money, although my Birthday is coming up so may have to ask for money instead of pressies!!!

Thankyou for visiting my blog xxx
