MIA But Good Excuses!!!

Hi blog friends!!! Im back in the land of the living after a mad 2 weeks. As many of my close friends know i was rushed into hospital last week with excrutiating pains in my stomach which turned out to be kidney stones and a kidney infection. I figure this passes as a good excuse for my absence!!!.

Wow what a totally awful experience that was and never experienced pain of that intensity (believe me i have had a lot of pain in my time!). It was really scary and the worst part was that i was throwing up big time with it and got dehydrated. I even managed to throw up over the doctor in emergency, i did ask for a sick bowl!!!.
So after xray's, CT scan, bloods etc and debating whether i needed an operation it was decided that i would be able to pass the stones naturally. I was so relieved and just could not wait to get home.

I have been recuperating over the past week and now getting back into cardmaking mode. I am seriously panicking as the coffee morning me and Wendy have planned is only 3 weeks away, 27th November. I am doing great guns on the card side thanks to so many kind donations, so now i am starting on gift idea's which i will keep you posted with.

Just wanted to post a card i made recently for Wendy's birthday (for her hubby to give to her, hence the wording he chose!!!) just so you know i have been producing. Sorry not great quality photography.

I used some yummy Papermania papers, Woodware owl stamp, circle Nestie and Martha Stewart leaf punch.

Thankyou so much for the kind well wishes and get well cards my friends.

Big hugs Clare xxx

  13. Hi Clare

    I am so sorry to hear about your recent experience in hospital. I know from personal experience how painful kidney stones and an infection can be, so you have my heartfelt sympathy! I hope you are back to full health now and managing to get on with your fundraising projects.

    I have some cards ready for you so will send them along this week.

    Take good care of yourself - oh and I almost forgot to say how adorable your owl card is! I love the leaves round that cute image! x


Thankyou for leaving me a message, it makes my day!!! xxx
