Good Morning Ladies,
I hope today finds you all well, those of you that aren't feeling 100% I am sending gentle hugs your way. 🤗
I managed to get hold of the 'Muskat' Clinic (musculoskeletal clinic) to ask why they didn't call Tuesday 08 15am, they said that they did !! (They didn't), I said that I was sat with my mobile, house phone and laptop and heard nothing, she said that they 'withhold their number' so my house phone 'probably didn't accept' their call! I was so cross, because I was awake half the night stressing about the video consultation! I replied with "so I can receive calls from down town Kolkata in India, telling me that my Internet is going to be cut off or someone has used my Amazon account ' but my phone won't accept an NHS call??!! She didn't know what to say, she then said she'd look for another appointment, asked me if i was ok as i was heavy breathing!! I explained that stress exacerbates my heart condition, so could she call me back with appointment, which she did, 5 minutes later, I answered and said 'oh it accepted the call ok' she went on to explain that they hadn't got any appointments at the moment, so have put me on the waiting list !! I honestly think that they had no intention of calling me on Tuesday, by keep offering appointments and cancelling it looks on paper like you are being seen so statistically you aren't being kept waiting, very sneaky and very bloody annoying!!
Now on today's card, I have to say that I am relieved to actually get a card made for the first time since 16th of August, I have been coming into my craft room but can't concentrate as there are so many reminders if my lovely friend in here and it just hurts. I am ok when Paul is in here with me as we obviously chat while we are both doing our thing. Anyway I actually got a card made which is a step in the right direction!!
I used the SU Tidings & Trimmings Stamp & Die set, the paper is from the same collection, its in lovely shades of green with a pop of Cherry Cobbler! I used a new green card called 'Evening Evergreen' which is a lovely deep dark green for my base card, I stamped some of the foliage sprigs onto the base card in matching ink for a bit more detail, I did cut some matching foliage and added that too and then placed a raised mat of the Dsp on top, I stamped and die cut the Stockings and Ribbon and stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler onto a piece of super smooth card, I adhered the Stockings to the white mat and topped with die cut bow. For extra texture I added a piece of Evening Evergreen plaited ribbon and placed the top layer slightly over it. I quite like the card, I love the pattern on the Stockings too. The card was totally inspired by a Catalogue inspiration but you got to start somewhere when you're on a rut !!
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to a of you,
