Morning ladies....

I thought the sentiment on today's card very appropriate because of all your very kind comments and concerns for me.  I've practically lived at the hospital this week!  The staff have been super, as has my hubby (he always is)

A&E Monday, (I said no to the emergency ambulance as I thought and said to the medic on the 'phone,  that I'm sure there is someone more needy than me, plus hubby could get me to the hospital much earlier than waiting for an ambulance.  Tuesday I was back there but this time to see an occupational therapist, who was fantastic, (dealing mostly with my hands and 'well being'), I left the department feeling as if Christmas had arrived as, Nik/OT, ordered numerous pieces of equipment for me, that I certainly did not expect nor asked for!  I was going only for new splints/supports for my hands!  So when you see the odd video with me wearing some special black gloves, that only show my finger ends, you'll know why 

I had the heart procedure on Thursday, that was an eye opener, then 45 minutes to an hour later I was called for a heart scan.  Lying on your front, for 20 minutes, not having to move, having rheumatoid disease, and throw in osteoarthritis, plus lying on your boobs, is something I hope won't be repeated, but only time will tell.  If I don't get a 'phone call from them over the next few days I will have to return to the Medical Physics Department for the second procedure.... followed by another heart scan!

Now back to 'business'

The black base is an 8" square.  The pretty pink paper is from my stash.  I used a pair of 'fancy corner scissors' as you can see, and before adhering the paper to the card I added a thin piece of black satin ribbon down the centre, securing it behind the paper followed by gluing it to the base card

Two separate dies were used for the heart and adhered into place

Mounting foam was applied to the sentiment and adhered to the card

I did layers of black and pearlised pink card to the inside and typed a verse

I've taken a close up of the verse should you want to use it yourselves at any time

  • all from my stash with the exception of the two hearts, the black one is nameless, the red is by Memory Box
and now for the card winner....

  1. Love the backing paper on this one! Hearfelt do such intricate dies - they look lovely. Sounds as if you have had an adventurous week - I hope next week is calmer for you, and you can get your health back on track!

  2. Thanks for the update - it certainly seems the NHS is working where you are so that is good to hear. The card is great for a girly person but I suppose if the colours were changed it would work for a man too. Thank you June and all the best for the coming week.

  3. Thank you for letting us know what is happening and hope next week goes ok. Lovely card June. Take carex
