Good morning everyone....

It seems ages since I was here showing a card!  Once again, thank you all for your kind comments and get well wishes.  They are very touching and do mean a lot to me

Today's card is a commission for a gorgeous little boy who recently celebrated his 8th birthday

It's an A5 card and I cut a slightly smaller top panel of the same card, rounded the corners then embossed it

Mounting foam was added to the back then adhered to the card base

The two sentiments were typed and die cut

The star outline was die cut and embossed and I glittered two of the stars before replacing them back into the outline

Two triangular shapes were cut for pockets and adhered to the inside of the card

The remaining stars were glued into place and the 'You're One In A Million' die cut and embossed

The sentiment was stamped and embossed

I backed a photo, of the birthday boy,  onto a slightly larger panel of yellow card then white and placed it into the left side pocket of his card

Health Update:

When I visited the rheumatology nurse specialist last week she had x-rays taken of my hands and also gave me a steroid shot.  The steroid is helping but it's only a temporary 'help'.  The earliest appointment to see a rheumatology consultant is February 2019, a ridiculous time to wait, but the hospital (University Hospital of North Durham) doesn't have any permanent consultant rheumatologists, only locums!  The hospital, in my opinion, is rapidly going down hill, it was never like this when I worked there!  The one perk, that I really appreciated and valued was, if I needed to see either my consultant or nurse specialist I was seen the same day - a huge privilege for sure

On Saturday I had both sedation and throat spray for the endoscopy.  The nurse said it wouldn't make me sleep....  I remember the doctor telling me he was going to insert the camera and that was that, I slept LOL.  Woke up in a different room  with a lovely cup of tea being made for me.  Now awaiting results

Until tomorrow....



  1. Welcome back !!! February sounds a long way off - but I guess it will soon pass! At least you have a bit of a 'safety blanket' to see someone if needed. Having an appointment in place is a good thing!
    Loving the card - simple and effective, and very 'boyish'!
    Look after yourself!

  2. Card is gorgeous and I love the 'One in a Million' die.

    Silly time to wait for appointment but that is par for the course I think, xxx

  3. Hi June this is a stunning card I love it and I bet the young lad did too. I am so sorry you have got to wait so long. Do take care. Hugs Jackie

  4. Really smashing card for a young one June,I bet the boy was pleased to receive it. Welcome back and hope you're feeling better for longer this time, discustting you have to wait untill Feb

  5. Brilliant card for an 8 year old boy. Sorry you have to wait until February for your appointment. Hope you will be ok in the meantime. Take care

  6. Glad you are a bit better and hope the next weeks waiting for the appointment are helped by the steroid injection. Pain is so debilitating!!
