Monday Treat!

If I hadn't made a card for a couple of months I think I'd need some jumper cables to get my creative juices flowing again but I don't think Jeanie's 2 months sabbatical has affected her mojo one bit! Maybe it's her new craft studio that has helped? Take a look at this beauty...

This has to be one of my favourite stamps...I just love Tracey decorating the reindeer. As usual Jeanie's colouring is amazing and OMG look at that bow!!! I think she should enter it in the challenge lololololol. Thank you Jeanie for another megamazing card!

Thank you for all your good wishes for Jean. We had a nice visit and Carol managed to make it after her work. Jean liked her card, cupcakes and balloons but was a bit put out I had included a balloon with 70 on it lol. The best bit was I had arranged for my dad and Uncle Jimmy (Jean and my dad's other brother) to call my mobile while I was visiting. Jean hadn't spoken to Uncle Jimmy since before she was hospitalized and she's especially close to him. It was wonderful watching her face when she realised it was him and they had a great chat. She was quite emotional when she said goodbye but hopefully it will spur her on even more to get better. Next came my mom and dad's call and all in all I think I left her pretty happy :-D My dad said to me after the call he couldn't believe the difference and I think he's still in shock.

The winners of the ribbon challenge will be announced tomorrow as well as bringing a new one. Thank you so much to everyone for entering...you've all done an amazing job.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Catch ya later x

Kerry - a bit off topic but.........I just went to a sports medicine dr. today for a foot injury - Carl Shearer - did he play for the Whitecaps as the same time as your husband? If so what a small world we live in!
