Something a Little Different and Friends

May 16, 2010 at 11:20 am 9 comments

I was updating my status on Facebook the other about how I’d crammed too much into my day and one of my friends suggested I should put my feet up. Little did I realise that I would be doing that literally the same day and not in a fun way!

We’d been over to Wakefield to get something fixed on the car. Rather a long way to get something fixed I hear you say, but by travelling an hour and a bit we saved well over £200! Crazy, I know!! whilst we were waiting in the local Asda, I came over all funny and kept feeling like I needed to faint. A little while later I was laying down in their Opticians room with my feet up trying not to pass out! It is a funny story really but after I’d seen my two SU mates Nikki and Vicki that evening, I felt bad again and ended up seeing a doctor at 1:30am!!! I’m now on some meds to stop me fainting although the doctor said he’d no idea what was up with me! I seem to have been plagued with all sorts recently but I’m looking forward to a few days of feeling better.

I really fancied a change, and dug out some other stamps to use with one of the new Stampin’Up! colours. I love the way that SU colours are so versatile and go with everything. The card is using some Papertrey Ink stamps that I have and the inks are all Stampin’Up! I really like just doing something completely new. It’s good to try something new- it’s made me look at all the stash I have in a different way. I’ve really missed crafting this week, so I’m glad to finally get back down to creating. I wanted to enter a challenge- I love creating to order so I thought I’d enter the A Passion For Papertrey challenge. The theme was to create a card with a Friends theme. I’ve been so grateful for my friends this week, for their kindness and thoughtfulness. I’ve had lovely messages, cards, flowers and it has really lifted my week. Thanks guys (or should that be gals!)- I am supremely blessed to know you and count you as my friends!

Well you can never stay sick for long- I have my littliest with a temperature now. I have an exciting week ahead. On Monday night I’m going to visit the Happy Stampers North West which are a group of ladies passionate about stamping. I hope I’m going to fit in! I love the fact that there are lots of  us with a shared passion– but often you’ve just got to search a little to find them.

I should go really, I need to cuddle little Will, – not a difficult job! Wish the backlog of housework was that much fun!


Card recipe. Scallop punch, Melon Mambo, Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise inks from Stampin’Up!. All other supplies from Papertrey Ink.

    OMG perhaps Steve was right and you really shouldn’t have come out on Friday night. (hope it wasn’t my cake!) I ‘m glad you saw a doctor and feel a bit better but still think you should get a full check from your own doc.
    Loving your card, love the ribbon too, can’t wait for my new PTI stash to arrive (got the order in on time 🙂

    Take care you
