DT - CC Blog Challenge 5


I just love how this turned out. It made a perfect 80th Birthday card for my hubby's Nan.

For this I used:

Barely Mine Designer Extreme CD for the Creamy spotted background, I then mounted it on some gold foiled linen matt board.

The topper from Rob Addams Flowers Cd and was suppose to be Gold but it printed out in a vibrant Orangey Red colour.... but looks really good in this colour, I then mount it onto some red bubble embossed mirri board. I added the text Grandmother instead of a sentiment and put 80 in the top right corner of the topper. The Gold strips across the front was cut from the same Gold Foiled Linen Matt board.

Yeah!!! I'm still alive.

My Op was a success but i've got 4 incisions, 1 in my belly button this is very sore, 1 in between my chest and 2 running down the side of my ribs, these 2 are the most painful.

I'm allowed home sometime today but now i'm looking forward to having breakfast as i've not eaten since midnight Thursday, I tried to eat a late dinner of some soup and jelly but just brought it back.

Well hopefully i'll be fine when i get home and won't be too long out of action. Will update again when i do get home.

I'm in hospital today

I peeps, I am currently in hospital and have brought my hubby's laptop in with me as they have a WIFI connection in the room. I am having my Gall Bladder removed this morning at around 11am'ish and am getting very anxious at the thought of going into theatre and being put under.

The nurses here in the Oaks Hospital in Colchester are very nice, caring and friendly. But it still doesn't stop me from worrying. I've seen the consultant and Anaethsetist and they've tried to put my mind at ease and have advised that i have a pre-med to calm me down a bit. I've had nothing to eat or drink since midnight and my tummy is beginning to think my throat has been cut....lol, my mouth feels like fungus....yuk!

Anyway i need to get into my Op gown now and those passion killing stockings they have you wear...lol

If i'm feeling up to it i'll pop back later this evening and give an update after my op.

Wish me luck, cos i'm gonna need it.

Nan's 80th Birthday Party Invite

My mum in law asked me to make the invites for her mums 80th Birthday Party and she was over the moon with what i made.

I used the Barely Mine Designer Extreme cd for the card base, I then used the Cricut "walk in my garden for the vase and stems and I used SCAL and one of the fonts on my pc for the You're Invited and the 80.

I then used the Lacey Scallop punch from Martha Stewart to edge the insert and printed a photo of Nan inside with the invite details.
