Crafty Calendar August Challenge


Hi all you wonderful peeps! Apologies all round for not blogging more often and visiting your blogs! The heat had knocked my poor 'hubster' off his feet and I have been struggling to get things done. I think the 'boys' have spent all their time jumping in and out of their paddling pool or laying on their cool mats....I have been finding it very hard to keep my blog up and running lately but I will try and improve I promise!! sounds like one of my school reports LOL! Anyways my card today is for our fabulous August challenge over at Crafty Calendar Challenge and the theme this month is 'Dots And/Or Stripes' so I have used this fab Nitwits papers and we are sponsored by the awesome A Day For Daisies who has kindly given us a $12 voucher to spend in store. Please pop over and see the gorgeous creations my team have made with these lovely images and please join in and be a follower! I've tried so hard to keep this challenge blog up and running so come on girls and guys join in!!!
I have to have a cortisone injection in my right shoulder tomorrow so I'm really looking forward to that! I don't like this getting old malarky at all. It's another warm day here and I can't believe the amount of butterflies we have visiting our garden and bees that's so good to see and of course the birds having a quick wash in the pool hahaha! Well I shall toodle off and put some more washing out while it's nice..hope you are all doing great and lots of huggles xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx

It's Been Awhile


Well it has been quite a few weeks since I last blogged or made a card actually! and I know it looks a bit crooked but it's not LOL it's the camera woman she's totally useless! I haven't been around because most of you know that the hubster has a chronic heart condition and he hasn't been well at all so I was really busy ...but glad to say he's out of hospital now and is doing really well but he sure didn't do my anxiety any good at all !! and I had two 'boys' missing him very much so they spent a week laying near the front door every night and barking at him by speaker phone lol. But the staff were amazing and we can't thank them enough.  The card is for my best friend who I met at grammar school on my first day and we have been friends ever since. I have made her two actually this one was for 'fun' lol ...I will get around to visit your blogs eventually I have really missed seeing all your fab creations and I want to thank every one of you from the bottom of my heart for all the wishes and hugs and just being there in blogland for me and the hubby. Take care and lots of hugglessssssssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi everyone seems ages since I have blogged ..it's been and still is a very hard time for me I'm slowly trying to pull myself round and take each day as it comes and I would like to thank you all for your kind wishes. Well I got back into my crafty room and made this silver wedding card for my youngest brother and his wife. It doesn't seem five minutes since he was a toddler running around following me everywhere!!! and now he's been married 25 years and has two grown up children of his own. I have been spending a lot of time in the garden getting my hanging baskets and planters prepared and generally tidying it up but the back is really telling me to quit for a bit now! lol ...We ventured to the beach with 'the boys' and of course Woody went deep sea diving!!! he really is mad as a box of frogs that one! ... Well I am off to chill for a bit...housework is done and fatigue is setting in. Take care all of you lovely peeps!!! Lots of hugglessssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
