My Birthday card from Karen


Good Morning Ladies,

I hope today finds you as well as possible, gentle hugs to anyone that needs one xxx

I have blood test this morning,  to check that my liver is recovering from the excessive amount of antibiotics,  the problem is I feel that I am starting with another UTI,  so I have no idea how they will treat it. 

Today's card is so beautiful in real life, Karen extended the flower stem perfectly, I love the colours too, the hummingbird is so bright and vibrant, the stamp set is a SU stamp set from a couple years ago.  I absolutely love it Karen, thank you so much ❤️ 

I hope that you all have a pleasant day, 

Love and hugs to all of you,




  1. Woo! What a surprise! Thank you for sharing my card I was inspired by a lady on Pinterest and I thoroughly enjoyed making it
    Quick tip - she stamped the detail first to line it up I then tried Distress Oxides over the top which dulled the black detail So I used Distress Inks instead which had their first outing in about 2-3 years I’d nearly thrown them out as I hadn’t used them in such a long time I need to experiment stamping the “texture” first with DO and do detail second
    We’re out dancing tonight but I do need to make a belated birthday card this afternoon
    I hope the blood test goes OK and you can say about another threatened UTI
    Take care everyone xx

  2. Hi everyone
    Gorgeous card by our Karen. Love hummingbirds, only seen them live once and not easy for they never sitting still for long .
    Sue and Brenda are so right with when you retiring, you wonder how you ever had time to go to work for you be so busy at home. We need some champie to celebrate it next time we sees !
    My dad is at home and mum had her eye operation. Can't tell yet if it worked, one can just keep the fingers crossed. They both now with walkers so they can have a race taking the dog out...
    I will have to tidy up a bit and then hoping to do some crafting later and tomorrow after picking my glasses up from the city.
    Sandra, hoping your blood test went alright this morning.
    Cheryl, Happy Birthday !!
    Have a nice day everyone and many big hugs to you all xxx

  3. Hello All, wet first thing, then dry but windy. Tomorrow we have a visit from storm Agnes, which they are giving a yellow warning for.

    Sandra, hope you get you blood test results quickly, and the also have an answer to your urine problems.
    Your card from Karen is great, love that loose style of colouring.

    We had our flu and covid vaccination this morning, one in each arm, had a bit of a head ache but it has gone now, hope that’s all the effects we get.
    Have a good night all ,Lilian
