Good Morning Ladies,
Todays card has been designed by Michele, Its a real pretty, girly one too!
I think that Michele has used one of 'John Next Door's' stamps (sorry his name escapes me)
I actually quite like this stamp and think it could work well with the New York Dies designed by Sue Wilson.
I am not sure what the pretty square border die is that Michele has used but I really like it and look forward to Michele letting us know later on.
Michele has finished the card with a beautiful bow, trimmed with some Bakers twine and a really pretty decorative dazzler style embellishment.
Thank you so much for allowing me to share this card Michele xxx
Love and hugs
Sandra

  1. Good morning folks, hope you are all TicketyBoo and looking forward the day ahead.
    SANDRA:- hope you are all still enjoying happy days in the sunshine.
    MICHELE:- love your great card. That's a brilliant stamp and a wonderful design. Change colours and you will get a totally different look.
    Everything set up for the day. There is some Gooseberry Jam in the pots. Yesterday Maureen waved a magic wand and a load of Gooseberries landed on my doorstep.......remember it is just "virtual" I don't even like Gooseberries!!! They are far too sour ..... I don't like sour things!!!
    John wants to take me out for lunch. Will see where we end up, I am not much I the mood for eating out just now. I get my B12 injection tomorrow, I will then have a boost of energy and be ready for anything in the next few weeks.
    Better go get a move on, I have a few things I want to get done before we take off.
    (((((Hugs))))) by the door for any who might need them. I have my Tea & Toast and am over at my favourite table to see who passes by or pops in today. See you later xxx

    1. Thank you for the gooseberry jam (I' m glad it is virtual too as I only like gooseberries raw)
      Enjoy your lunch out today. Once your B12 jab kicks in you will be back to being superwoman again and tiring us out with all that you get done so early in the day. Seriously, the jab will make you feel much better, I am glad to hear : ) Take care x

    2. Mmm Patricia, the jam is gorgeous. Thank you for doing it so quickly. As soon as you get your B12 injection, you'll be a new woman. Take it easy today and let John look after you. Let him take you out for lunch, but just have a snack. I'm sorry you're not up to par, have one of my hugs or a piece of your delicious tablet xxxxx

    3. Oh Patricia let John take you out for lunch. At least he'll feel better for doing it even if you won't.lol. No seriously just go and have a light lunch and then tomorrow/day after you'll be back to yourself again.
      Hugs just for you xxxx

    4. Patricia, have a lovely time and enjoy just having a nice change. Maybe when you get there you'll feel more like eating! These injections really do change your life don't they! Take care . Xxx

    This is the card I won on Julia Watts blog- I definitely didn't make this!!!!!!

    I have started to make a Christmas card-to take to Florida but now I've started it, I'm not too keen on it so will put it to one side & start something totally different.

    Once again we have a lovely sunny day, a bit breezy still. Work today is going to be a busy one-at least 3 new patient in for chemotherapy in addition to a full list, should keep us out of mischief!!

    1. MICHELE:- going by what you have made and shown us in the past you certainly could have made that card and never even said.
      There will be people you encounter today who will be more than greatful that you are in at work today. (((hugs))). xxx

    2. Jess, you could have kept quite and we would never have known that you didn't make this lovely card. Try and remember Patricia's comment about patients being grateful for all that you do for them if work is tough today.
      I do the same with cards, I start with one idea and end up doing something totally different! Take care x

    3. Michele you are one honest bunny I really thought you had made this card it really is within your capability and no mistake!
      As Patricia has said there will be people you will meet today who will be so pleased you do what you do so well, and really appreciate your being there. xxx

    4. Well, knock me down and call me Sally!!! We would never have known that you hadn't made this, except it's not quite up to your usual standard. You do a magnificent job Michele, you should be so proud.

    6. Hello Michele
      As has been said above it could definitely be one of your creations. I would like to see it in different colours how about you?
      There are so many people more than grateful for you and the job you do as I suppose you know. Sometimes the 'back room' Angels are forgotten but Not In This House. Hugs for you xxxx

    9. Hi Michele
      What a lovely card to have won. Hope that work isn't to stressful. I'd just like to say that Pete sees a Specialist Cancer Pharmacist at the Churchill Hospital who is fantastic. Mind you I just thought a pharmacist was a pharmacist, he's keeping an eye on how the new drug is working on Pete. I assume for the pharmaceutical company. I didn't realise they could specialise in different areas. Just to let you know you are all appreciated for the jobs you do.

Julia sometimes sells batches of her cards off on her amazon site for charity - my friend bought some recently. Karen congratulations on winning a card too, how exciting.

    Sandra I hope you are all in full relaxed mode now, recovered from the journey and still lots of relaxing days ahead, the best bit of a holiday I think.
    It is always strange when you aren't with Pat and me when we meet up. We have a lovely time and know you are with us in spirit. Are we missing you? You bet we are, but glad you are having a great time. Take care my lovely x

  5. Good morning Sandra and ladies. Well Michele I think a thank you for being honest is needed, as like Patricia has said we wouldn't have thought you hadn't made it. Thank you for sharing you win with us. Those new and old patients will be grateful for the work you put in today. We tend to forget the back ground staff of hospitals, without them sone of us wouldn't be here today.
    Well it's a nice looking day here, but will it last? Is the question?
    Will take my cup of tea and go and sit with big sister and do a bit of catching up with her. For someone who is running out of steam she just not sit still.
    I will pop back later to see who comes in, xxx

    Shelia, I am sorry that you are still suffering. Please don' t forget that we are here even if you only want to rant and rave about the pain. It is times like this when I wish we lived closer so that you could get a proper hug and some help. Sending gentle hugs anyway.
    Pat, thanks for a lovely day and for the wonderful fresh beans, cabbage and lettuce. Enjoy your pedicure tomorrow : )
    Mum-Margaret P, so sorry your appointment was cancelled and it is typical that you get offered the op just when you can ' t have it! Glad that the next date isn' t too far off though. Love you x
    Maria, fingers are crossed that the new meds start to help quickly. Not sure if you did get an answer about Duraglit and Brasso but they are metal cleaning products : )
    Saba, sorry to hear that you can' t find a home for the Union Flag clock. Glad that you and Oliver enjoyed the craft shop and why shouldn't you spoil him, you don' t see him often.
    Myra, well done on fixing your cutter and for getting Christmas cards organised. I always plan to, maybe this year it might actually happen!
    Margaret , glad that you finally got Derek seen. How ridiculous that they tried to fob you off!
    Anne, enjoy the new iPad: )
    Hazel, rest again today after the busy time and glutton overload. You got a bargain with the cardies didn' t you.
    Janet, I will keep an eye out for the Lidl white paper, it sounds gorgeous, thanks for that.
    Maureen, I hope you are taking it easy after the gardening yesterday
    Brenda Ll and Brenda OB, I hope you are both OK
    Diane, you have been busy again, you will need a holiday once Emma is sorted out.
    Jess, you must be tired out, will you rest today, I hope so.

  8. Good morning ladies,

    Missed yesterday as I joined a walking group with friend Maureen.
    Bit apprehensive as way out of my comfort zone, but as the rain had cleared here in Cannington we decide we were going on the walk by Brean Downs. The closer we got to the starting point, down came the rain again. Not too hard, enough to soak everything though. We met a really lovely group of people who welcomed us very warmly and off we set along the lanes leading to the river's edge, all dressed in waterproofs and sporting umbrellas of various seizes. Walked for about 15 minutes then came upon a locked gate across a public pathway so turned around and carried on walking to the beach and then around the edge of the dunes and towards the shoreline until it got too soft upon which we then headed off to the nearest café for a welcoming hot chocolate over which we got to know other walk members.
    Whilst driving home we decided that we would definitely need some rainproof trousers, walking shoes or boots and perhaps a larger umbrella as our next walk would be across the Quantock Hills. Rather exposed out there so hence need for better clothing. We then decided we would make a whole morning of our Mondays from now on and have lunch out too. After a very relaxing time back home for a well earned cuppa. After Maureen had gone, it was almost 3.30pm. To early to have tea but not too late to take a moment or two to have a nap. I'm still yawning now after an early night and ggod nights sleep.

    Today's card is gorgeous and I shall be taking certain aspects of it for a Sympathy card I need to make today. A dear friend has died, we became quite close when we found ourselves on the same ward after I had my kidney cancer op and she was admitted with stomach problems. She had recently been diagnosed with tumours in her stomach, lungs and on her spine. After a lifetime of having one cancer op after another, she took the very brave decision not to undergo further treatments because there was no guarantee she would get through them.
    Love & hugs

    3. Cheryl, well done for you and Maureen taking those steps to join a group of strangers and find that it was a very good move. Enjoy your walks in good company. Yes good waterproofs and walking boots a must, buy good walking socks, wash a few times before you wear them and another tip turn your socks inside out. Daughter Gillian's tips for people doing the big charity walks that she sees to the feet during they are doing it. So as she would say little or big walks you have to look after your feet.
      I am sorry about your dear friend, one brave lady to make that decision, but she knew what her body had been through and deep down knew she couldn't do it again. She is at peace now. xxx

    4. Hello Cheryl - well done you two for joining in and walking. We really miss our walks. We used to do some of the long distance walks taking five days in which to do them stopping each night at a different venue. Buy a good pair of walking boots and some 1,000 mile socks. I always wore those -they're not the cheapest by half but they really are good- and never had any problems with feet etc.
      Sorry about your Friend. She was one very brave lady.
      Hugs xxxx

    5. Hi Cheryl, glad you and your friend joined the walking group. Sound very nice where you can do it. Hope the weather is better next time.

Good footwear will make such a difference! Sorry about your friend - my Mum was the same but the Consultant encouraged her to have no more treatment and enjoy the time she had left. It was good advice and she had been through a lot already. Thinking of you and sending hugs and prayers!
      On a lighter note - I thought Margaret had given you a new double- barrelled surname at first! Xxxx

    7. Well done CHERYL and friend MAUREEN. Yes! you will need to get all the waterproof gear. Really good boots are a must.
      Can I give you a little tip about "socks" ...... always wear 2 thinner pairs rather than one thick pair. First pair wear "inside out" second pair the right way. That way any rough bits rub together rather than on your feet. I used to do that for running and never had the blisters that some runners had. Still do it for walking, especially when wearing Wellies.
      Sorry to hear about your other friend, at least she tried everything to help herself. Sending you some (((hugs))) xxx

    8. Hi Cheryl
      Lovely to hear you had a lovely day walking and met some very nice people. Good tips from Patricia regarding socks. Good wrt weather gear is a must. We need to get out a bit more to do some walking. We do walk but usually along a canal or around the fishing lakes nearby. Tar Lakes are apparently famous in the fishing world.

  11. Good morning, and it is, since the sun is in the sky again!. Michelle, you are so honest, but like the others, I would have happily thought this was your card. Sometimes when you get a "professionals" card, it's good to see that it's not so different from our own "best" cards. (no comparison to my rubbish, just need to play with paper ones though)
    Sorry to see that some of you are not feeling great, or lacking in energy. Lets hope everyone is much better soon.
    Derek has been away for a couple of days, so theoretically, I should have had a bit more time to myself, but since I was faced with the choice of a couple of hours crafting time ( my preference) or doing the laundry so there were clean knickers in the drawer, well...sorry girls, knickers won. I did have paper knickers a long time ago, but haven't seen them for sale for years.
    I'll try to pop in later,
    Meantime, hugs for all

    Enjoy yourselves, I'll pop in later to see what you've all been up to. I think Myra should give Von Saba's clock to her Craft Club children to see what they can do to it!!! No, on second thoughts, maybe not ha ha.

    1. I'm with you Maureen! This is going well so far ! I think it's a daft name - doesn't exactly trip off the tongue does it? I guess with C&C having craft in their title made it more difficult but I'm sure they could have come up with something that didn't sound like a foreign restaurant! Xxx

  14. Buenos dias Sandra and friends, oh gosh I'm really lazy this morning. Think I need some B12 too if any going spare. Have a nice lunch Patricia. Hazel-hope you feeling better today. Sheila- hows your back and leg doing today, just take it easy. Gentle hugs to all who need one!
    It was sunny earlier this morning but so raw and now it is grey so rain will come, again. If you got any warmth and sunshine Sandra could you send some to us. I hope you have a nice time, the girls enjoying themselves and Paul having a real rest. OH used to take a few days before relaxing properly so must be nice you manage to get away for more than one week.
    Karen also getting a Julia card ,congrats. Now it is just the rest of us who need some luck. Hope to see you Karen and Lynda in today sometime, hope you just busy and not poorly. Washing machine has stopped so go to hang it up, indoors I think be the better choice . Be back later so behave xxx

  15. Hello Sandra and Everyone,
    Well it's taken me a fair while to get here! A bit like Cheryl's walk - only not so healthy and it's quite dry in my kitchen!
    Last night I went upstairs to my craft room just to try to mend my cutter! Well I did that and promptly got carried away and made two cards and cut out more die cuts! I had previously cut out the new Joy To The World Die. It is beautiful, very clear , a good size and cut beautifully. I had put it down on top of a sticky sheet covered with iced snow so just had to finish really! I will make a number of these as they are lovely and can be flat for posting!
    I thought I'd lost one of the stars from the Angel set and was quite upset! Looked everywhere - even emptied bin. Found it last night in my Die Folder it had magnetically stuck itself to the back of another die! I was so pleased!
    Ironing today - need to find something to watch while doing it!
    Take care everyone.
    Hope you are feeling a little better, Sheila.
    Hope you are alright Lynda.
    Love to all,
    Myraxxx

    1. KAREN:- I sat down switched on the telly. Flicked through and saw 10mins of that. It would mean buying "more" tools. I make Roses with Martha Stewart clay. I make them like a Sugar Crafter would do it. Make individual petals then make up a Rose. Thanks for the heads up though, xxx

    1. John & I are having a chuckle here. Well I am, John was not so amused!!!
      This is a wee it rude but I will tell you anyway. I was working on some Roses at the kitchen table. John was sitting opposite chatting to me. He look at the table and said "there is lots of Glitter here at my place, hope none of that not got on any of the food I have eaten" "Oh! for goodness sake it will not do you any harm" "How do you know that for sure" he asked.
      I was getting rather frustrated, I was trying to concentrate. What the heck it's only glitter!!
      Could not help myself ..... "Tell you what, if you have eaten some, just think you will pass ..... Sparkly Poo!!! If you could have seen the look on his face!! Yes! I was chuckling John had gone ... he was NOT so amused!!! xxx

      I'm glad you didn't tell John that glitter sticks like glue. He could have a sparkly inside for ever. Pete despairs every time he looks at some of my dining room chairs. The glitter just won't vacuum up. He's very fond of vacuuming, although he's learnt that you don't vacuum before Sandra and Sue come over.

    Hope the weather is still fine for you all, and I hope Matt had a lovely day yesterday. Lovely card Michelle today even if you did win it. Love the die that the stamp was cut out with.
    Myra I tried to explain to Pete what was written in the times. He just didn't get it at all. Not to sure where his brain is at the moment.

    John organised everything, he had some cold meats, tomatoes and cucumber.

    MICHELE I love the card and I'm going off to claim mine! It was lovely of to admit that you hadn't made it because what I've seen of your work it certainly matches it if not beats it. Your job must be a pain at times but you help so many patients in tough times it must be very satisfying
    PATRICIA Hope you're feeling brighter and managed to get out for lunch. Maybe a change of surroundings helped. I love gooseberry crumble so I'll take some if you don't mind. Hope the jab goes OK and you'll feel tons better
    ANNE Glad you like the new iPad I use my iPod to look at blogs I'm hoping somebody will get the hint that I'd like to "upgrade" to an iPad for my birthday
    CHERYL Glad you enjoyed the work and reminded me of something that apparently Paul O'Grady's (Lily Savage) mum used to say "There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing" which is true to a point Treat yourself to the waterproof trousers You'd use them if you're ever caught in the rain selling your candles

    1. Well Karen , when I got my 1st iPad 2 1/2 years ago as a Christmas present from Iain I didn't know whether to laugh or cry , I was terrified of it , he had tried to get me interested in his computer but I'm just not that way inclined but because I knew I could go on craft blogs and buy on line I soon got the hang of it and I was really lost without it for 3 weeks, so although I am no whiz on it I can manage ! I hope you get your wish!

Ok Tammy told me to leave things she would do it when she got home, but that fell on deaf ears. I was told no ironing but I might just make a start if wee man gets his reading done quickly.

  27. Hello everyone, sorry I'm late, I've had a friend here today having a catch up and doing some crafting. She's just starting out on the card making journey so it's interesting to see how she is learning. She'd been given an ultimate pro and hadn't got a clue what to do with it so we had a lovely play. She made a box and had a play with the embossed sections on it. She went home really pleased.its been raining all day again here really heavy rain so just right for crafting! It's almost dark now, what's happened to summer, it's really chilly!

  30. Buenos Noches mis amigos!
    Well we have had a lovely day today, there wasn't a cloud in the sky so we did as we had promised the girls and went to the next 'very chavvy' town (its that chavvy that is has proper 'irish' bars and you can get Yorkshire pudding and all day breakfast)! You wouldn't know you where in spain apart from the weather, every other person was wearing a football shirt, anyway you get the picture, but its the only beach around here where you can hire pedalos with a slide on the back, so after I was very ungraciously manhandled onto the back of the thing they set off for an hour, the screams and squeals of delight where well worth the effort of getting on the thing, Paul too enjoyed whizzing down the slide! (I wanted to stay sat on the beach but they insisted I joined them)!
    after that we went for an icecream and then came back to the campsite, had late lunch and went onto the beach here, I had a lovely swim and then layed in the sunshine until about 7pm and then came back for a shower and some dinner.
    I have left you all a lovely big jug on Sangria and some tapas for later on, I am off to schedule some more blog posts for next week,
    I hope that you all are well,
    lots of love

    It has got a wee bit colder tonight, put the heating on for an hour or two, so it nice and cosy now.
    Off to make a cup of tea, just can't be bothered making any cards tonight but I must do them tomorrow for my daughter in law and sister in law, their birthdays are at the weekend, kind of have an idea what I will do so that is half the battle.

  35. Hello ladies
    Just to let you know I am alive and kicking.
    I have been without my I pad all day, Peter borrowed it to take to work, he was expecting an important e mail and needed to reply to it as soon as possible. I did look in using my phone but for some reason it wouldn't let me publish - Google needed verification but wouldn't let me get any further. So frustrating.
    I have just finished reading all the comments and what with paper knickers and sparkling poo I have been in stitches. I now have a mental picture of John checking next time he goes!
    Cheryl well done for going on your walk, it must have taken some courage. So sorry to hear of the loss of your very brave friend, may she rest in peace.
    Sandra you sound as if you are having a wonderful time, don't know what is chavvy about Yorkshire puddings though!!!
    Michele Julia's card is lovely but it could easily have been one of yours, I agree with everyone one else, you are doing a wonderful job, people always praise the doctors and nurses and forget about all the very important people who are in the background, so,take a well deserved bow.
    Muriel I love your new name, it reminded me of when I worked on paediatrics and I was listening to two small children discussing their nurses. One was telling the other which nurse he meant and said it was the one who looked like aunt Sally. He meant me. I took it as a compliment.

  39. Back home, thank goodness it only took 25 minutes to get home. Was planning to coming home and get a card put together but I will leave that tomorrow. So mad with my self I made a card this morning had it ready for chatlie to take to the pist box when it dawn on me I hadn't photograph it. So I must remember to do the one tomorrow, so I can put it on my blog at some point.
    SABA it's sad when we miss our iPads so much, but I am lost when I can't use mine.
    Lynda, good luck with the updates.
    Oh I can see we will only need one tea bag between a good few of us at the retreat, Lynda, if you were coming we would let you have the first use of the tea bag. There would still be enough left to make us four weak tea drinkers s cup.
    Maria, hope your OH op goes ok.
    Sheila, I hope you aren't in to much pain. I just wish I could Magic it away. Do you take calcium and magnesium tablets by any chance? As if you do ( I found they help with the pins and needles you get ) but if you up them it might help settle things. I asked my ex boss and she also said try taking 2 paracetamol 2 hours after your Co-Codamol for a day and really get on top of the pain, and try keep moving which she knows is very sore and hard but it's trying to release the nerve.
    Pat, happy packing.
    Sandra, oh you sound like you had a great day. Yes you do wonder why folk pay to go to Spain when they want to still have very English food and drink. And I can see the sea of football tops.
    Well it looks light a lot of you are going to bed early to night.
    Brenda ( LL) are you ok, you have been very quiet!
    Will pop in before I go to bed to see if anyone else has been in. xxx

    2. Hi Hazel
      When Peter asked if he could borrow the I pad I didn't realise just how much I would miss it. The phone is ok but everything is so small.
      I take both magnesium and calcium since my diagnosis and they have really helped with the muscle pain, I also take vitamin D capsules as my blood tests showed I was deficient. I hate having to take tablets though and am hoping that when I next see the consultant I might be able to knock a few of them off. I have never taken anything before this stupid Hashimoto's reared it's ugly head!!! Still, compared to what many others are going through this is peanuts.

  40. SABA, I have taken the calcium and magnesium from before I had my womb cancer, it helped my sciatica so much and I was able to stop taking the amitriptyline, more or less straight away. At least the calcium is not addictive. They were doing trials to see if magnesium helped chemo patients when I was having it and they were so pleased with the results they got from me, I didn't get pins and needles or loose feelings in my fingers etc. xxx
