Hello lovely ladies and gents ( yes I had a gent commenting this week )
This past week has been a real roller coaster for me so hope you don’t mind if I share a little of what has been going on before I get to my ATCAS card.
As many of you know I have being having problems with the old leglet for several months now , a damaged bone and bone marrow issues all of which have put me on bed rest and in quite a lot of pain. Now for most people the chance to be at home for a couple of months and released of all duties might be a welcome break but not for me . I can’t sit for more than a few minutes and lying down is even more painful so it’s really cramped my style as I’m quite active. Plus the fact that Mr P also has been having leg issues, bone spurs in his heel extremely painful but he has taken over the reigns in all departments and suffered in silence , well nearly in silence you know how boys can be. To top the lot our baby dog Molly started limping and we have been told she needs a knee operation !!!!!. So could the person with the voodoo doll give this poor family a break at least in the leg department people think we are joking when they come to our home and see us all limping !
Anyways this last week I was at a really low ebb the Molly situation was the last straw , there has also been a break in, police, guns and a brave husband but that’s a whole blog post on its own and will save for another day . I felt ready to give up but after returning from a few days at my beach house ( only managed to swim twice this year ) I found out that the lovely Kylie and Darnell had been in cahoots arranging a linky party for me at Addicted to Stamps and More ! I nearly cried my good leg off , I couldn’t stop for over an hour I was and am so touched by these wonderful ladies and for everyone who took part creating amazing cards to wish me well and cheer me up . I can never thank you enough for your kindness and thoughtfulness you have given me the will to go on and fight and put a smile back on my face for the first time in months. So a HUGE, HUGE thank you all and especially to my team mates who are the most amazing bunch of lovely and caring ladies and have put up with me for so long . Oops here come those tears again…. better move on to our new challenge at ATCAS before bloggers blindness takes over !
Our code word for the next fortnight has been chosen by our lovely and talented Sylvia.
Sylvia I loved your code word as I love anything Oriental especially the food ! Not to mention that my son’s band is called Chinese Basement and I nearly used the cover of their new CD lol !
I have a beautiful book of Oriental prints so I printed this pattern onto acetate and placed it within the frame . The sentiment was computer generated and printed onto vellum. The translation is thank you very ,very much so quite fitting I think you will agree.
I can’t wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge but if you’re feeling a little stuck why not pop over to ATCAS my fellow team mates have created some stunning cards for your inspiration. We would also like to welcome our newest Guest Designer for september the one and only Tenia from Jazzy Paper designs if you don’t know Tenia and I very much doubt it unless you have been under a rock for the last few years then get on over and get acquainted.
We are sponsored once again by the fabulous Stamp Art Design who are offering five digs to our lucky winner.
Hope you all managed to stay till the end !
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and thank you all once again
Love to you all .
