A set of Florals, my Beautiful Friend & a Cheeky Pic!

Hi all!!!. I have been working so far this week on a set of cards.

Im sure a few of you know that i absolutely love fussy cutting!. Sometimes when im feeling a bit icky but fancy doing something crafty which does not require too much thought i usually get the tiny scissors out and some cuttable (is that even a word?) papers & cards and start snipping away. I made some cards up a few posts back using up the last bits of a 12x12 BoBunny range called Petal Pushers Doodles. If i fall in love with a 12x12 with lots of potential i usually have to get 2 or 3 sheets!!!. I know they will not get wasted and i won't feel so bad if the urge to cut the sheet overcomes me.
I made a resolution to try to make atleast 2 (hopefully more) of the same card each time i create. With all of the doodles from the gorgeous sheet i have made 8 cards but still have enough to make more. Here they are;

I am really into sentiments and wanted to keep them fairly simple. The sentiments are a combination of rub-on's and stamps. I just added a bit of bling to the florals and some coloured layers to the base. Although the cutting out can take me some time the cards took no time at all.

One of the cards i duplicated is going to my beautiful friend who has gone in today for a major operation. She was diagnosed with bowel cancer 6 weeks ago and the doctors were going to cut the bastard cancer out of her and get rid of it. She is in a lot of pain but the op went according to plan and she is in high dependency for the night where they can look after her. I am praying that all of the cancer is gone and that is it. She may need chemo but won't know until she is able to see the surgeon.
I cannot stop thinking of her and am praying that she is ok and that her pain subsides soon. Just feeling pretty helpless and wish i could take the last few terrible weeks away from her. She's a tough bird though and know she will be fine. Love you my beautiful friend xxx

On a funny note i snapped this pic of Simone yesterday!!!. Does she looked chiiled out or what?. Sorry it is blurry but she was so close to the lense.

And not forgetting Mr.B, he was a bit grumpy as he was tired!!!

Ok darlins, need to sleep now. Have a great day tomorrow and i will be back real soon.

Godbless. Love Clare xxx
