Playing with new xmas stamp

I was lucky enough to go over to Barnard Castle on Wed evening and pop into Graphicus. My hubby, the kids and archie went for a walk while I watched Glenda and Lynn make some beautiful cards. I need to take a few photos.
Here are a few congratulations cards I made for Amy's friends for their A level results.

I've fallen in love with the art work of Mo Manning. It feels a little like cheating but the images are gorgeous. I used my copics to colour them, ideal when sitting with leg up.

Clarity shoe stamped onto patterned paper and then cut out.

Polka doodles cd ideal for the little girl next doors birthday, lovely cd to play with.

A rare photo of me, usually hate them. Hubby and I went off to York for 2 days and stayed in a lovely hotel, very relaxing.

A friend from work wanted a card for her brother in law who's into tattoos. Was pleased with the finished card.

I bought this stamp at the Harrogate show and love the image.

Fed up

Two weeks ago I woke up with a swollen knee. I thought 'oh no' not again. Two years ago I my right knee locked and when it released there was a sickening pop. Should have gone to the docs straight away but thought (like we all do) it'll be alright. After a scan on my leg I found out that I'd had a Bakers Cyst that had ruptured. It took weeks for the fluid to clear from my knee and ankle. Very sore.
So two weeks ago we took the dog out for a good walk on the Saturday everything was fine, then Sunday my knee swelled up. Off I went to the Docs when my ankle was filling. It's a pain because I get up on a morning and I can feel my ankle bone but by lunch time it's sore and swollen. Fortunately I'm off work at the moment. So I've been making a few cards. Here are a few.
I'm also biting my nails as Amy recieves her A level results tomorrow with her boyfriend(everything crossed) and Jack his GCSEs next week.
Inspired by the team at Graphicus

A good friend was retiring from work, I didn't want to make a big card so I made 40 small ones so everybody could write a message.

Oh how Archie has grown

He seems to be still growing week by week. Just love him to bits.

A few cards and catching up

Lost my camera so I've been taking pics on my mobile. The software is a nuisance so I couldn't believe how many were on there. Here are a few.
