A reason to smile.

Good day to you all. I have entitled this post "A reason to smile", as the stamp set I used to create these two cards is a new stamp set from Stampin Up! called A reason to smile. Nevertheless in reality it has been a different story. I will endeavour to enlighten you. Unfortunately I haven't had much to smile about lately. I have had 2 very bad falls within the last 6 weeks, the first fall, I fell when I had popped to Spalding, ambulance had to take me to hospital as I had cracked my head open, resulting in it having to be glued. Then the second fall happened 2 weeks ago today. I fell at home on to our tiled conservatory floor, fracturing my elbow and breaking my ribs. Again having to be taken to hospital via ambulance. So I am out of action for at least 6 weeks. Needless to say I am in such alot of pain.

Last night was the first night I was able to go to bed, I have been sleeping in a chair for 2 weeks because of my broken ribs I couldn't lay down. So definitely suffering from sleep deprivation now (yawn) lol,

So in all, I haven't had much to smile about.

I do hope that your all OK. I am sat in my conservatory typing one handed enjoying the sunshine. Not being able to make cards etc is driving me insane. Only 4 weeks to go till I can hopefully get back to normal, including driving.

These two cards I made just before my last fall. I love the stamp set I used, it kind of lends itself to anything really. Well I will sign off now. Hope you like. Thanks for stopping by, lots of hugs, Lou. X x

A Faux Book

Hi there, hope your all well and enjoying the weekend. The sun is shining and it's nice and warm out so that is a bonus. The nights are pulling in now and it certainly does feel very autumnal outside in the evenings. So I will probably feel more like being in my craft room a lot more now in the evenings, especially as the football season is back in swing, much to Bru's delight.

I am not feeling too good today, so just resting at home although hope to go in craft room later as I have a wedding gift to make for a friend. I was in agony last week with chronic toothache, in which eventually I had to give in and visit the dentist. I had to have 2 back teeth out.

Anyway thought I would upload some pictures of a faux book card I made for a lovely friend of mine called Anne. It was her birthday and she loves her birds, so i themed her card on birds for her. Hope you like. Thanks for stopping by. Have a good weekend. Enjoy!!! Hugs Lou. x x
