James and Snowman

Evening all

I got a lovely order of Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps and papers during the week, so I'm all Christmassy this week! That, and the fact that the order for 25 invitations that I was working on for the previous couple of weeks being finished means I'm a happy camper hehe :D Everything that could go wrong with that order did, so I'm glad I was finally be able to hand them over successfully and in one piece, such a relief :D

So this is what I made yesterday, I got a few James bear images, I love him so much :D

floral easel card

Evening all :)

I'm feeling much better now, managing to stay conscious for most of the day now haha, I really should get that checked out, as I'm really not sure local anesthetic is meant to have that effect on a body for that long lol. 

Here's a card I made a few weeks ago, I made a similar one for my mum months ago for her birthday, and my neighbour saw it and decided she wanted one for her sister for her birthday, so I made a similar one for her :)

40th birthday

Evening all

I'm a little under the weather at the moment, I went to the dentist for a simple filling yesterday and came back out minus my wisdom tooth. 

Turns out I'm also sensitive (not quite allergic but not quite normal) to the local anesthetic too, I have been asleep since lunchtime yesterday until now haha! Bar half an hour earlier when I set the alarm to get up and feed the cats and do some chores. Starting to come to a bit now, not being able to think straight is awful... My parents came home from their holidays today, and I'd tried to have some sandwiches made for them, but they found me slumped on the floor covered in coleslaw when they came in, so that wasn't quite the welcome home they imagined hahaha! Really hoping I feel a bit better tomorrow, even typing is serious effort, weak as a kitten here.

My sister asked me to make her a card to give a male friend for his 40th birthday a few days ago, I drew a blank when it came to suitable images for a male adult acquaintance lol, so this is what I came up with.

I just typed the 40 out in Word!
