Good Tuesday morning everyone
Thank you all for taking time out to visit my blog, It's lovely to see you back again or if you are visiting for the 1st time. Welcome.
have been waiting 9/10 weeks to hopefully share some good news with you all. I
had a health scare ( lady problems ). Scared, I went to the doctors and expected
her to say this is normal, but she didn't. I went for a CT scan which
she put as urgent and nearly 3 &1/2 weeks later I got an
appointment, then waited 2 weeks for results only to be told I had to go
and have a biopsy under local anesthetics. I had a very large polyp removed and a
biopsy, but no local anesthetic was offered. That was a bit painful. I
waited another 2 weeks for results only to be told I needed further
investigation. I was in pieces and thinking the worse, but 5 days later I
went in for a womb biopsy under general anesthetics. Another 1st for me, so I do consider myself lucky to have got to my age and not had a General anesthetic, I waited another 2 weeks for results, Anyway, I am so
happy to say that I do not have the dreaded C. I have to go and have some sort of intervention but nothing to worry about. This episode had put my life on
hold for such a long time and I know if I hadn't had my DT cards to do I
would have gone mad. Lucinda at CE asked if I wanted to take time off,
but I said the cards for CE are keeping me sane. So now I can move forward and
start living again, as my life was totally on hold, the only thing I did
for all those weeks was my DT cards as I couldn't concentrate on anything else. Paul has been amazing and
reassuring me all the way through, I think he is a little greyer though, but
Claire and Craig had no idea, but we have all been celebrating ever since. They
have stopped but I'm still going.!!! YAY.
about the card. I'm sorry if you are getting bored with white, glitter
and poinsettias, but I made a plan over the last few weeks to use these
items so maybe next week I'll try something different, but don't hold
your breath as I love doing more is more cards.
Here we go then!!

How to make:-
I have made my usual matt & layering on both sizes and embossing the coconut white card.I covered all the the flakes with crystals. I then cut 2 of the background die and used a sticky sheet to adhere it to coconut card and then covered it with Glasier ice.
I then cut several of Sue's snowflake and poinsettia dies of various sizes and layered them as I thought looked good, but you might like a different take on it, it's totally up to you, you make it as personal as you like. The 2nd layer of the background die I attached using sticky pads to the sparkly background for dimension and arranged the poinsettias and snow flakes on top. Finally I cut 2 holly sprays and cut them to make leaves for the poinsettias.
I hope you like this one too.
Have a good, happy & healthy week
Big Hugs Always
